    Have you looked in the device manager to see if the wireless is showing and it is operational.
    Try to ping your router.

    Netgears support pages are actually quite helpfull (for a change) :)
    your problem could be caused by a number of things, so I suggest you have a wee trawl through the support pages and try some of their troubleshooting type things, try and nail the problem down :)

    Personally I installed a netgear wireless usb adapter when my pci card went on the blink, and i didn't have any issues with it at all, so I've no bad experience to fall back on and help you out.

    Well did you get this going or not. It has been a while since you wrote this thread?
