Looking at the documentation, it seems that device is intended only for use with the Netgear Digital Entertainer Live, and as such they won't have released a Windows driver for it.

If the suggestion above doesn't work, plug the wireless adaptor into your PC, identify the device in device manager and note down the hardware ID shown under the details tab.  Post that back here and hopefully it will reveal what chip is used and a suitable driver can be found.  The string you're looking for is something like 'USB\VID_1A2C&PID_0023&REV_0110'

Hardware often isn't identified properly in Device Manager if there is no driver loaded.

In that case, run msinfo32.exe

On the left, expand Components, then click Problem Devices
Over on the right you should find the Device ID.
Select that line, then click Edit (on the menu at the top) and choose Copy so you can paste it into a reply here.
