Installing Netgear WG311v3 on Windows 7

July 17, 2011 at 1:20 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Hi everyone. hope this one helps somebody out there.
just bought a Netgear WG311 v3 and tried to install it several times on Windows 7 32bit. first with the included CD drivers, then i went here on supportpage for
WG311 and downloaded wg311v3_v5.0.0.5_setup.exe.
Always get the errorcode 10, (device didnt start.) begun to search on forums
for issues about this and now its WORKING!
so here we go. first you have to find right driver and that should be
wg311v3_3_1_setup.exe, NOT the one on the supportpage for WG311.
try to google it and you will find.
1. Properties on wg311v3_3_1_setup.exe and select "compability" and choose "windows vista service pack 2" also checkbox "run as administrator".
2. Run wg311v3_3_1_setup.exe in my case 2times (first it will ask you to remove previosly drivers, then install the new ones.
3. reboot computer and when you enter windows you will be prompted
"install uncertified drivers, select yes and trust driver"
4. now it should work! ive spent 6 hours for this.
