WG111v3 – G54 Wireless USB Adapter
And so I was never able to launch this product to the point where I could even attempt an Internet connection. I have a friend with similar issues and an even better computer.
The WG is a simple and secure way to share a broadband Internet connection. When I would 1 log in to one profile, 2 install the drivers, 3 use the adapter with the XP connection utility, 4 log out, 5 log in as another user, 6 log out the second user, and 7 use the adapter with Windows XP connection utility, then 8 XP would no longer recognize the adapter when I unplugged it and plugged it back in on either profile.
I’d buy another one if I needed it. Following this string of failures, I have no intention of further troubleshooting and potentially jeopardizing my Windows XP installation with this unstable product.

In one night my computer froze twice while playing Star Wars Battlefront II online, and it has frozen two other times while viewing websites since then.
My PC isn’t the issue here, as it has never wirelesx or frozen in 4 years. I was optimistic that this wireless adapter would work my well-patched and reliable Windows XP Pro desktop, and so I bought it to connect with my new Verizon FiOS router.
Very easy to install. First of all, I am editing this review.

Have had no problems since installation. I gave in and used the Netgear connection utility. Regrettably, I didn’t read the reviews beforehand. I’d take this thing back to the store and get a different model, but the store has a policy against returning opened hardware for anything but a 1 to 1 replacement. I’m a professional software tester, and this would not have made it past my desk. wirelesz

Paul, MN July 31, Connects well and holds on to weak signals, but I had to uninstall and reinstall the drivers in order to get XP to recognize the adapter again. User reviews on www. Did not work on Windows XP J. If I could I would give it 2 stars at best. The adapter continually causes hard freezes of my PC while it is in use.
Following the initial installation, my computer would freeze every time I inserted the adapter, requiring a reboot. Windows XP users should also tread carefully. It must be my room. I say most of the time because at least once a day it’ll drop the wireless adater for a few seconds.
