Good product - easy install.

  • Summary: As advertised. You install the driver, shut down the machine, stick in the PCI card, restart, and it works. Just like in the movies! Netgear is its own little universe in the Wireless Kingdom, the software has a tendency to demand that you use it, but it's pretty good software, so that's no real crime. I like it fine.

Harder than it should be.

Ebj "ebj", Amazon
20 October 2007
  • Summary: i should have give this item more stars, but since it was so hard configuring it i will only give 3 stars. Successful instalation steps: 1. Download and install the version 2.0 of the drivers for this device from netgear.com, dont use the ones that come in the box most probably is they are an older version and will not work fine. 2.

NetGear Wireless Adapters

Overstock
26 September 2007
  • Summary: I bought one with my new computer, and it kept having this problem where it wouldn't be recognized and I had to reinstall it every time my computer shut down. Eventually, it would work again and then stop again, without any material changes in use or configuration. Now, about a year after I bought it , with the warranty freshly expired, it's completely broken down. Netgear's product has been terrible, and I would recommend against buying it.

Newer MA111 (MA111v2) does not work on macs

melissa, Amazon
14 May 2007
  • Summary: Several reviewers and an amazon "So you'd like to..." list have suggested that the MA111 USB wireless adapter will work with macs running osX. This is not entirely correct. The original MA111 should work. However, the MA111v2 uses a different chip than the old MA111v1. The DWL-122 prism2/3 driver will not work with this adapter, and there is no mac version of the driver for the chip (SiS 162) used in the new ones.

Fast, once the problem was solved...

Timothy Jackson, Amazon
14 May 2007
  • Summary: I have two of the MA111 adapters. The first, installed on a Shuttle XPC running Windows XP SP1, has been troublefree from day 1. However, the second adapter, installed on my Dell 2650 (also running XP Home SP1) was giving the "blue screen of death" reported in several other reviews on this page. I got the screen 100% of the time. It turns out the problem is a conflict with the standard Dell Synaptics touchpad drivers.

Use latest driver for windows xp sp2

Michael, Amazon
14 May 2007
  • Summary: There are two version, V1 & V2. V1 had problems with XP SP2 but the latest driver solves this problem. V2 works fine with XP SP2. In both cases, you MUST install the driver BEFORE plugging in the card! This is very important! If you do that the card works flawlessly. The range is superb. Better than my Netgear MA401 which is a PCMCIA card. The MA111 works from 4 floors up in my apartment building, which is an amazing range. I am truly impressed.

tricky for xp

Amazon Kunde "jansn", Amazon
14 May 2007
  • Summary: this adapter should come with a warning: "if you're using xp, do not install anything from the netgear cd!" with xp's own driver, it works like a charm. with the netgear driver and tool, it worked sometimes for me, but only when i was logged in as administrator, and only when i was using the netgear utility program, and even then it was kinda unpredictable. if you have already installed the netgear stuff - remove it with the uninstall tool that's in the folder.
