I am using a Linksys WUSB54GS adapter on a desktop PC running WinXP SP3. The router is a BT homehub.

The problem - The adapter has been tested to be working. The Router too. The problem is most definitely with the PC where it can not detect any Wireless Networks using Wireless Zero Config Utility. The wireless config balloon pops up telling me that wireless networks are within range, but opening the utility displays no available networks. There are definitely networks within range as my laptop can detect them.

So what is the deal with XP SP3? I have tried working with the services dialog and restarting the WZC service. No avail.

Please I really need some help here. I have isolated the problem to how the desktop PC sorts out its config with the wireless. All the rest of the hardware works fine.

Thanks in Advance!

Try deleting the wireless connetion completely then restart the system and let it reconstitute itself.
