Fun (bug) with netgear wireless G

Posted: July 22, 2009 by datechguy in tech

Well the new B system is in the Dining room (yes you read that right) but since it’s in the dining room it can’t reach the router. So the time came to get a wireless for the system. (This predated the download of video drivers).

Since I didn’t want to spend a lot on a “B” system I picked up the least expensive product. A Netgear Wg111 wireless G adapter. This is the low end product in terms of speed but this is meant as a “B” machine so speed isn’t a vital consideration at this time.

The install was fairly routine, I disabled the netgear manager to use the standard windows one and after a few false starts connected without issue, that’s when I got my surprise.

After reboot the standard friendly interface for XP logon was gone and the enterprise style logon replaced it.

When I went to switch it back (I don’t mind that version but it can be a pain for the non-pc people) I got a grey screen and the following error:

A recently installed program has disabled the Welcome screen and Fast User Switching. To restore these features, you must install the program. The following file name might help you identify the program that made the change: RtlGina2.dll.

Lucky for me a simple fix was written by a fellow named Doug Knox. Simply click here and download the fix file, and run. Reboot and Viola! You have your screen back without losing your internet!
