    I just purchased a Belkin wireless adapter and wireless router for my destop. I have a Epson NX400 printer that does not have wireless capability (it connects to the computer with a cable). My problem is this: whenever I turn the power on for the printer, I immediately lose my wireless connection, the icon for the wireless internet disappears from the system tray, and I get a pop-up message that says "No wireless hardware is detected on this computer". When I open the router software and choose "fix", it doesn't work. The only way that I can regain my wireless internet connection is to uninstall and reinstall the adapter and router software. The Belkin support has had me do many things - none have worked so far. Does anyone know why this is happening and what I can do to fix it? Below is the report of TSG SysInfo:
