    Will, maybe, did you check to see if there is a "Thumb Drive" in a USB slot?

    Try to go into BIOS and see if "Hot Plugging" is enabled?

    Yes. Even if your system won't boot after, which is highly unlikely. All you'll need to do is to change it back.

    What process did you use to remove this "Flash drive"?
    Step by step please.

    Looks like you used your external drive or secondary drive to save the wireless wizard network settings.

    Shouldn't really cause a problem, you can probably delete its related files from the drive if you want.

    Why did you run the wizard in the first place? Did you change anything? Reboot the wireless router as well as the modem and the computer and see if the wireless issue goes away.

    That's not what that wizard is for at all.

    Try a different USB port for the wireless adapter. Is there a device with no drivers or an error in Device Manager?

    Yes, it could be defective. Have you tried directly into the computer instead of the hub? Hub's are less reliable then directly into the back of the computer.
