    For channel problems you can use software like Xirrus WIFI inspector to help you find the best channel.

    You would need to turn off the auto channel scan in your router and then choose a channel based on what Xirrus show you.

    Here in the states using the 2.4Ghz frequency we are limited to channels 1-11.

    For those of you who are having trouble getting your Netgear wna1100 wireless adapter to work, Simply go to the Netgear website - Global Download Center - search for your Product Name/Model Number and it will look for what you need which would be wna1100 - win8 beta driver and click it. Next a windows will popup with a download button, click that, After that you will come to another screen. Scroll down and click continue without registering. It will start the download process. Once after you have downloaded your driver and extracted it, I would place the folder on your desktop. Believe me, I wen't through the same thing when I was trying to figure this out too. Anyway, Uninstall your Netgear wna1100 wireless adapter then re install. Before it asks you to use push and connect or connect on it's own, go to control panel, system then device manager. From on network adapters and look for your netgear wireless adapter. Right click then go to update driver software. Next click browse my computer for driver software. Next you will click browse so you can locate you driver folder. Once after you do all that, you will be good to go. Hope I was any help. Like I said, I had to do the same thing because I have the same adapter. I'm new to this forum but I saw that someone else was having the same issue...So I figured I would give them a helping hand.

    Windows 8 Pro


    I have installed Windows 8 Professional on my 630 that has i3 @ 2.3GHz and 2 GB of RAM. It has an Atheros WLAN card and bluetooth card. I have installed the Windows 7 ultimate drivers for both, yet they do not work when I press the 'F12' key or even Fn+F12 key combination. Kindly help me in this regard.

    I have an atheros network adapter as well and the atheros site in the op states clearly the Drivers for my 5007 and the 9271 are not windows 8 compatible, so kindly tell me what are my options? I cant replace the network adapter and my model only uses this one!
