Netgear WG111v3 Adaptor Died?

Hello! I've been using a netgear router to connect my pc to the internet through the other pc. I have a netgear WG111v3 USB adaptor, but it just died, I think; the light on the adaptor won't turn on, and if I run windows troubleshooting for internet connectivity, the message says something like "Connect ethernet cable to computer." Since the router itself is working, I'm pretty sure it's just the adaptor that has died.

My question is, can I just order a new adaptor from amazon or netgear? Will it still be compatible with the router I have? My router is Wireless-G Router WGR61 4v10. Will I have to re-install the netgear software to my computer? Basically, how much of a hassle will this be? Is there a better course of action?

Sorry for all the questions, and thanks for your help!

Hello shmalligator

Have you tried the adaptor in another USB port or on the other computer, if not please do so and let us know the outcome.

If the adaptor is bad it is pretty straight forward to replace and we will assist you with it if it is required.

Yes, I did plug it into other ports and it still didn't work. However, after some more messing around, I got it back up and running. Thanks so much, though!
