I am trying to connect to a NETGEAR router using a new Belkin N150 USB adapter. I am running XP Professional on an old IBM Clone Desktop. I am connected to this router now via my laptop.
I previously connected the desktop directly via Ethernet cable using local area connection 7 which is still visible on my connections.
When I first installed the USB adapter a radio tower icon opened up at the right bottom of the screen xed out then a larger window opened saying that a wireless connection had been detected. However when I clicked on the radio icon I got a large window saying No wireless networks found in range.
I have checked services.msc and everything is ok. I have tried uninstalling the Belkin software, the hardware, all of the network connections and rebooting but nothing helps.
