You download it on your existing connection and transfer it to a pen drive, external drive, burn it to a cd . . .

Have you got access to another Computer? If you do download the file and transfer it to a USB drive.
Ah, I I forgot all about that. Thanks!

Download and manually install the driver from here:

http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/23641

Note particularly these instructions:

  1. Using the Download Link below, download and extract the new software to a convenient place such as your desktop. The filename after extracting is WNA1100_Setup_v2.1.0.2.exe
    Download Link: http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/WNA1100/WNA1100_Setup_v2.1.0.2.zip
    NOTE: After downloading, DO NOT RUN THE FILE YET. Please proceed to Step 2.
  2. To properly install adapter software, please remove drivers that were previously installed.
    To uninstall, go to Start > Programs > NETGEAR WNA1100 adapter > Uninstall NETGEAR WNA1100 adapter .
  3. Unplug the WNA1100 adapter from your computer.
  4. Run the file you just downloaded and follow the on-screen install instructions.
  5. If you want to install the adapter drivers including the NETGEAR utility, run WNA1100_Setup_v2.1.0.2.exe. and follow the on-screen install instructions.
  6. If you want to install just the adapter drivers without the NETGEAR utility, run WNA1100_StandAlone_V1.1.0.2.exe. and follow the on-screen install instructions.
I've gone through with the installation and i've reached the message 'Insert the wireless USB adapter into a USB port on your computer. Click next to continue.' So I plug it in and click next and it pops up saying 'Detecting adapter...' and it has stayed like that for a few minutes now.

Have you tried both the setup and standalone installs? Also when you run the install try doing so by right clicking and selecting "run as administrator".
