Just go to the netgear website and look for your particular netgear model, then look for downloads there.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I just visited the netgear website and found out that my particular model of Netgear Wireless-N USB Adapter supports up to Windows 7.  I did try to get the Windows 7 software and drivers to work out of desperation within the Windows 8 operating system, but, failed in my efforts.  Is there anything else I can try?  At this point, it looks like I have two options:  1  Buy a new wireless USB network adapter which supports Windows 8 or 2.  Wipe the hard drive and downgrade to Windows 7.

Replacing Windows 8.x with Windows 7 in my point of view is more like an upgrade rather than a downgrade...

Often, if there is no driver available for your OS, it is possible that it is already included in the OS, or will install via WindowsUpdates. So I suggest you connect the PC to the internet vial LAN cable and run all windows updates. Chances are that the wireless adapter will then work after that.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

             First and foremost, I want to apologize for the delay in responding back to my post.  I certainly found each reply given helpful in taking the best available option in resolving my interest in getting this Netgear Wireless-N USB Network Adapter working.  The model number WN111v2 of my Netgear Wireless-N USB Network Adapter is supported by Windows 7, but not Windows 8.  Upon finding this out, I decided to just go back and stick with Windows 7 on this desktop.  Once the desktop was reverted back to Windows 7, I was able to successfully download and install the proper drivers using the link given by Miftaul for my particular model of Netgear Wireless-N USB Network Adapter.  The wireless network connection and internet connection are back up and running again.  

               Many thanks for the insights and links shared within this post.  

               Have a great evening everyone.

               George
