I have Vista. I have been using this netgear wireless-n 150 wna1000 usb adapter for a few months. the other day I lost connection with it and it wouldn't come back. I tried reinstalling the driver and it won't work. I run the setup but when it gets to the point where it says insert usb, i do that and it says it can't find the driver. I have the most updated driver on my desktop as well as the cd. Even if i try to select the driver on my desktop manually, it won't allow me to select it. It doesn't even show up in the list. I tried installing it on my laptop and it works perfectly. For some reason it stopped working on my desktop and cant locate the driver even though its there. I talked to tech support and they determined that the usb is fine and there is something wrong with the computer blocking it. It shows up in my device manager when i plug it in under "other". The light on the usb even lights up, just cant locate the driver. Please help.

try disabling any internet security application or personal firewalls and try re-installing the driver.

Hello,

Click on Start => in Quick search type the word cmd on the blank field. From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results here.

Have you tried a different USB Port in your Laptop?

Also, you may uninstall/remove all USB Controllers from Device Manager, then restart your computer and let Windows install all USB drivers back.
