Re: Netgear wna3100.exe smart wizard

Thanks for your reply Dazzled. I tried as suggested but still no go.
I sent a request for a fix to the NetGear site and was advised to download a new version of the software (1.1.3.22) which
I will do and hopefully solve the issue. Regards Trombone

Netgear wna3100.exe smart wizard

I have a shortcut to the Netgear Smart Wizard on my desktop which when double clicked won't start the wizard on either of 2 machines running Windows XP Pro sp3. The wireless LAN is perfect. Would appreciate a "fix".

I decided to take advantage of an Exetel e-mail advising me of a new plan for NF 22 BYO line upgrade to ADSL2. The stumbling block on the application form is on the SERVICE DETAILS question where the "Current DSL Provider" is to be entered via a drop down list. How do I proceed when Exetel is not me...

The Rogue Trojan Rogue.Andromeda.AV got me well and truly last weekend. For the first time when replacing a faulty Graphics card I decided to use the "update driver" option in device manager.
