Hi Guys,

Having issue with A6200 not connecting after restart, i have to take it out and plug it back up then it reads it. Is this normal or is there a fix for this?

thanks in advance

Hi denny1514,

Have you tried connecting the wireless adapter on other USB slot?
Is the wireless adapter directly connected to your computer or you are using the Desktop Dock?
What is the operating system of your computer?

You may try to install the wireless adapter to a different computer and check if you will encounter the same problem.

I have the same issue. Are you running Windows 7 x64?

When I was running windows 7, there was no problems at all. But since installing windows 8 recently, I've had nothing but trouble.

I too was having the same problem. I discovered when I upgraded from .18 to .26 firmware the problem of not starting up again began. My setup is HP TouchSmart 600 using Windows 7 64bit computer. I uninstalled the .23 firmware and installed again the .18 firmware and problem was solved. I'm afraid to use the firmware updates.

I am having the same issue.

After the upgrade I am have an issue where after boot up my a6200 will not connect to my R6300 until I unplug the adaptor and plug it back in.

Re: New A6200 doesn't connect after restart.

Just did a fresh install with Windows 7 x64 after having some problems with windows 8, Everything seemed to be working fine until the first reboot for drivers.

I have to disable the A6200 through windows, or disconnect the adapter manually. It always seems to work after the first try....

Has anyone else upgraded their adaptor and not have this problem?

Re: New A6200 doesn't connect after restart.

This may not be the answer some of you want but a fix for this is to create a batch file and run it at start up using task scheduler at logon.

@echo on

netsh interface set interface "NETGEAR A6200 WiFi Adapter #2" DISABLED

ping localhost -n 6 > nul

netsh interface set interface "NETGEAR A6200 WiFi Adapter #2" ENABLED


This batch file disables and reanables the adapter after 5 seconds. The ping command acts as a pause. You may need a longer pause.

I changed my adapter name so you'll need to get the name off of you system and make the appropriate changes.

Hope This Helps!
