      When I bought my DGND3700 I was supplied a Netgear WNDA3100 v2 as a freebie with it. This adaptor works at up to 300mbps on both 2.4GHz & 5GHz. It came with a short lead and a holder, so that you can locate it a short distance from your USB port and perhaps attach it to the lid of your laptop. I've not had any problems with this adaptor, but have since changed the internal adaptors to support 300mbps on my two laptops. I bring it out occasionally as the reception is excellent and I wanted to see just how many WiFi routers are now visible where I live the other weekend.

      Netgear has since released the WNDA4100 with supports up to 450mbps on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels.

      p.s. it picked up around 85 WiFi access points.

      You could try re-enabling it.

      If you are concerned about it connecting to your Sky router, just delete any existing connections that your laptop remembers for it.

      Im thinking its a vista issue, because it installs the drivers yet when device is plugged in it just cant find them ? Strange. Computers do my head lol.

      Tried everything this baby just doesnt work with my laptop ?????

      Other than ensuring that you have installed ALL the current updates from M$, I don't know what else to suggest I'm afraid.

      I am sure that someone else will have more technical knowledge and hopefully they will jump in to suggest something else for you to try.

      Hi Charlie,

      Is your operating system 64bit do you know? And if so, are you installing the 64bit drivers for it?

      I have an older version and never had trouble with it connecting.

      It must be a driver issue.

      Could it be faulty? try it in another computer.

      How have you installed drivers?

      Years ago you had to do it a certain way, either plug device in and give it drivers when asked or install drivers reboot and attach device.

      Have you gone through a driver update manualy forcing it to take one you have downloaded?
