    Hi Techguy Forum.

    A few months a go I got a PC and so I bought this ASUS 802.11n USB Network adapter so I can connect to the Internet wireless. The OS for this PC is Windows 7 and the USB Network adapter works fine.

    Since I am a gamer, I want to switch the Wireless over to my other PC (Windows XP) and connect the router locally.

    Whenever I try to connect the USB network adapter on to my Windows XP it wont recognize it as a Network adapter.

    I have tried installing the driver
    Uninstalling, rebooting the reinstalling

    I notice the USB device doesn't light up when it does when I normally connect it to my Windows 7 PC.

    I am using a ASUS N13 802.11n usb wireless adapter by the way.

    Hi,
    Just a quick question, when you Installed the Drivers from the CD, did you also install the Utilities from the CD, this helps detect your Adapter and most likely adjust your adapter to Backwards compatabiliy, take a look at page 8 of your Manual, hopefully there will be something there to help you.

    Best of luck in solving your problem

    All of those things I have already tried. This is ridiculous, it works fine on my Windows 7 PC but it wont light up on my Windows XP.

    Perhaps I`m being silly here and I`ll show myself up for the blonde that I am but make sure you`re using XP drivers with the XP installation !
