Hi I have the above usb wireless adaptor and trying to connect my pc to a belkin wireless router. But although I installed the drivers and am sitting beside my wireless router it won't pick the internet connection up. Can anyone help???

Is the router's SSID broadcast enabled?

Do you detect any wireless networks?

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.

  1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
  2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
  3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?



Let's see this as well.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

TERRY Yes re ssid and no it won't detect any. My pc is connected to the router at present but laptop won't connect. And I would like to have my pc wireless as well as my router is in the hallway and I would prefere the pc in another room. Will this be possible or will I need a computer connected directly to the router?

Follow the instructions EXACTLY, you missed this line.


Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

You don't have any wireless network hardware that Windows recognizes. The Device not appearing anywhere in Device Manager indicates it's not seen at all by Windows. When you plug it in, do you hear the "device connected" tone from Windows?

As I suspected, the USB wireless NIC is nowhere to be found. :)

You need to figure out why it's not being recognized by the hardware before you'll make any progress here.
