    I am trying to get this WG511 card to see my AP at home.
    It installs and appears to be setup correctly but will not connect to the
    AP.
    I have removed the encryption (back to basics) and still no joy.
    If I do an "ipconfig/all" I get the message "media disconnected". It does
    however see the correct card and a physical address.
    I have disconnected the old inbuilt Intel mini pci card in the bios.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Is the computer a laptop? Did you check with the laptop mftr. to make
    sure the Netgear is compatible? For instance, Thinkpads will not
    support every wireless adapter available.

    If your laptop does support the Netgear, get the most current drivers
    for it from Netgear's website.

    Turn off any Virus checker or firewalls and see what happens.
