NETGEAR is a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic and networking equipment. They have a wide range of products that include security appliances, networking appliances, Prosafe switches and network-attached storage. Routers are one of their major networking products. Routers are networking devices that are able to receive data signals and transmit them to different devices. A network integrated with a router has a lot of advantages over other set-ups that are devoid of routers. The use of router in a network makes for better security as the firewall built in the routers filters and blocks harmful data from entering the system. Routers allow establishing of a local area network i.e. by means of a router, we can connect more number of computers to a single Internet connection and with the addition of other devices like hub, the number can be extended further. Wireless router allows one to attach devices without any physical connection. It makes connections in public places easier and the need to locate the router and connect cables is not felt.

Download and install
It is the conventional method of updating the NETGEAR router driver wherein you download a compatible driver that is available on the official website of NETGEAR. The downloaded driver is to be installed after the uninstallation of the outdated driver. It is recommended that you select a compatible driver from the different drivers available for installation in order to avoid incompatibility and software conflicts. The new driver installed will become active once the system is restarted.
Using removable media
This method of installing an updated driver is meant for systems that are devoid of Internet connection. Here, the driver downloaded in any other system with Internet connection is copied to secondary media such as CD ROM or Flash drive that is in turn used for installation. The procedure is almost similar to direct downloading. The only difference is that the source of installation in this case is a removable media.
