    Running on Windows XP SP3.

    Wireless USB Adapter is a new NETIS N150 Wireless USB Adapter

    PC is custom built, about 10 years old.

    300 GB of Data and 2 GB of Ram.

    When I boot up the PC it displays a message in the bottom right that says "Belkin Router Management. Wireless hardware cannot be detected on your computer and may have been turned off. Click to learn how to turn your wireless radio on." Even though the USB drive is plugged in and to the best of my knowledge turned on.

    When I insert the NETIS Driver CD it does nothing :(

    I've installed the driver and double checked everything. And the few useful info guides online have not worked for me in this situation.

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    run chkdsk with the /r parameter, if this does not work then run system restore from safe mode to a point in time where the router worked.

    Also, check in 'Device manager' that your USB ports do not have a check against the box to turn them off a period of non use. And, plug your USB coms into a socket on your motherboard: the front panel USB sockets linked by cable to the motherboard are less reliable.
