Window 7 Netgear WG311v3 Drivers

    Pregunta

  • I just installed upgrade Windows 7 to my desktop system that had Visa.  I purchased the system in Sept with the understanding that I will be sent the Windows 7 upgrade.  I'm was connected to the internet via Netgear WG311v3 adapter card and drives under Vista.  It does not work under Window 7.  I checked the Netgear site and they stated that they do not have drivers but Microsoft does.  I went to the site and downloaded the Microsoft driver but I still can't connect to the internet.  What can I do next?

  • After searching on Netgear website, there was only driver for Windows XP and Windows Vista. First you might go to Device Manager, right click your hardware device in the list and select Update Driver Software; then click Search automatically for updated driver software.

     

    Note: Drivers on the Windows Update site are directly provided by hardware manufacturers. Microsoft tests drivers in various environments before they are published; however, we cannot guarantee all drivers will work on all hardware platforms as there are too many different models, although their hardware ID are the same as the standard version. In some cases, due to hardware modifications by different manufacturers, the driver updates may cause some error.

     

    If it still does not work on your issue, I'd suggest you installing the Vista driver in Compatibility mode. Remove and rescan that hardware device in Device Manager, right-click on the driver executable/installer file -> Properties and select the Compatibility tab; click the checkbox before Run this program in Compatibility mode for option and select Windows Vista in the list-down box; then try installing the device driver via Run as administrator. In addition, you can use the Windows XP driver for testing.

     

    Meanwhile, please understand that Windows 7 is a new operating system and whole driverstore has been reprogrammed; you might wait for another period of time till the vendor company to upgrade their device driver. Thanks for your time and understanding!
