Trying to get Netear WG111v2 WIreless USB to work with windows 2003

Basically netgear doesn't have a driver for windows 2003... lame...

I tried installing the XP, it seems to work fine but it will never get an IP address, anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Josh

go to control panel->network connections->right click the wireless nic->choose properties->on the general tab scroll down and click internet protocol(tcp/ip)->click the properties button-> to make sure dhcp is enabled on the nic make sure obtain ip automatically has a dot next to it. If dhcp is enabled on the nic, make sure dhcp is enabled on the wireless router, also on the router if mac filtering is enabled make sure the mac address for the card has been added.

All of that is fine, it has to be a driver issue i think :/

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I had a similar issue with an asus usb wireless card and it was the card that was bad.

Yea I found that too, but the download doesn't exist... it just takes you to netgear's site, which isn't windows 2003

Unfourtunatly you may need to purchase a different wireless card, but after looking all that i found where made for mainly win2k and xp, some had drivers for nt, 98 and linux but couldnt find any with a specific driver for a server os.
