Netopia Wireless + Pen drive USB connection trouble
Heya all

got a problem with a Netopia wireless device, or so it seems. Model: TER/GUSB-N. The network adapter is working fine the light on device is flashing but my problem is a utility to see available wireless networks. It seems it did not install with a WLAN utility. Not sure if drivers were installed correctly or not. Driver Version is 2.0.1.0 and Provider is Ralink. Please help if you can. Oh and Op System is XP SP3

Help if you can

Check in Device Manager to see if the driver installed OK.

Not sure what else you're looking for. Are you unable or unwilling to use XP's WZC?

Motorola directions say to use Windows Zero Configuration Utility for the TER/GUSB-N if you have XP.
Go into Control Panel, Administrtive Tools, Services. WZC is near the bottom of the list. Make sure it is turned on.

Motorola Site, Support and Down. The Netopia TER/GUSB-N is about 3/4 down the page under Home Networking. Links to User Guide PDF, Driver Download and Troubleshooting Download.

If you click on Home Networking at the top of the page, it will give you downloads for Vista Driver, XP Driver and Utility Driver.

I've WZC is started but I do not have a wireless connection icon in control panel to open utility. I know the driver does not install a utility but how do I get WZC open and operable?
The device manager is showing the driver/adapter is install properly.

Thanks for your response

If you right click on the wireless connection in Network Connections I think one of the options is 'view available networks.'

Yup tried that but it's not showing a wireless selection. only wireless selection I have at all is the wireless network wizard thingy but it just allows me to setup my own personal network not access another wireless signal.

I'm stumped. Any chance of trying the adapter with another computer?
