W4000+ - Any working usb wireless adapter??
#1
Hi to all!

Just bought a brand new W4000+ and because i cant connect it directly to my main modem, i need to know if there is any working usb wireless adapter (preferably 5ghz) for this model..

I tried many times with a netgear wna3100 i already had but although the adapter becomes active when i install the official driver, it just wont show me any wireless networks. And if i try to deactivate and then activate again the adapter from inside windows server, it stays permanently deactivated until i uninstall the driver and install it again.. (forget to mention that wireless lan service is already installed so this isnt the problem)

A workaround would be to buy a cheap router to set it as client bridge to my main modem then connect W4000+ to it via ethernet but i prefer the usb adapter if any.. Powerline also not possible...

Dear Sir,

The W4000+ HW base on Intel platform, thus less HW depency, and also the SW come from Micorosoft, thus please try on the USB wirless dongle which driver support Windows Server 2012R2, and should able to work.

Alos we check the NETGEAR N300 which support up to Windows8...

On theory if support Windows8 and should work with 2012, thus please try on following link:
