If you’re looking to update the driver for your Netgear WNA3100 Wifi adapter, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, we’ll provide 2 easy ways to help you get the latest WNA3100 driver in no time! 😉

Try these methods

Both methods below work in Windows 10/8/7. You may not have to try both; just browse through the list and take your pick:

  1. Update my Netgear WNA3100 driver manually
  2. Update my Netgear WNA3100 driver automatically (Recommended)

Method 1: Update my Netgear WNA3100 driver manually

To update our Netgear WNA3100 driver manually, we might first have to go to Netgear’s official website, find out the latest & correct version of the driver, then download the file and install it all on our own. 

If you can’t access the Internet, you might have to download the driver on an network-equipped computer first and then transfer the file to the target computer to install.

The whole manual Wifi adapter downloading & updating process needs time, patience, and certain levels of computer skills. If you’re not comfortable playing with device drivers, or worrying about any risks in the process, jump to Method 2.

1) Head to Netgear’s official website and click the Support section.

2) Type  Netgear WNA3100 driver into the search box and press Enter.

3) Click the first result to make sure you download the latest version.

4) Click the download link provided in the page. (Make sure it’s the version suitable for your OS).

5) Move the downloaded file to the computer without the Internet.

6) Uninstall the old NETGEAR WNA3100 adapter driver on your computer. (As is suggested by the official website, you might want to remove the old driver first before you install the new one).

7) Unplug the WNA3100 adapter from your computer. 

8) Depending on your needs, you might choose to run either the Genie setup or the driver-only setup. Then follow the on-screen instructions to finish the install.

9) Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Method 2: Update my Netgear WNA3100 driver automatically (Recommended)

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your Netgear WNA3100 driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

Important: You might need to connect your computer to a Wi-fi network in order for a quick and smooth Netgear WNA3100 driver download & update.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:
