    I have had dealing with Comp USA, in the past. You should be able to return it.

    Have tried Netgear web site for help ?

    Cheers

    Default wireless

    If you have the instructions for the netgear wireless you should be able to
    set it up. Follow them carefully. If not let me know what the model number of the wirelss netgear router is.

    Make sure they are interoperable, this means if the router is a 802.11g then the wireless pc card must be 802.11g or 802.11b.

    If the router is 802.11b and the wireless pc card is a 802.11g, it will not work.

    As said above follow the instructions that came with the router to install it.
    It sould have come with a cd to install the drivers and what not. Once this is done let me know. And we can go from there.


    I have dealt with a few wireless networks one being netgear, so i will try to help you as much as possible.
