How do I setup my WNDA3100v3 adapter without any internet

I recently started building my PC and I bought a WNDA3100v3 wifi USB adapter per my friend’s recommendation. My problem is I can’t use Ethernet so I can’t access the internet without wifi but since I didn’t get any CD with my adapter I have to go to netgear’s website to install the software. I can’t do this if I don’t have internet though I do have another PC downstairs but I’m not sure if I could set up the adapter on it and then after it’s set up use it on my PC? I said I can’t use Ethernet because my router is across my house and downstairs so it really isn’t an option for me.

you can download it and put it on a jump drive/flash drive. use that to install it to the PC.

Indeed. Use the downstairs PC or ask one of the friends you mention to put it on a USB stick.

 

I'm surprised that you got your hands on a WNDA3100v3. It came out in 2014.

Interesting. Not available here in the UK.

 

All sorts of people use Amazon as a storefront. It would be nice if someone found a few crates of the DM200 modem.
