Have you tried resetting your router? i have a belkin wireless adapter and have poor signal in my room, most days it works fine other days it continuously dissconnects, i reset the router and its usually fine after that. Does your lap top internal wireless device only disconnect when playing warcraft?
Try it in another location whilst playing.

My Adapter i no longer picking up my wireless router, it doesnt light up at all when its plugged in to the usb port either


Hey!
It seems like the driver/software of the adapter got corrupted, or that the adapter itself is corrupted/mulfunctioning!
First, unplug the adapter; completely uninstall, restart then reinstall the software; then plug it in again, preferably using a different USB port.

If it still doesn't work, replace the adapter!

Best regards,
Pelu.

Light wont come on


  • Make sure drivers are installed.
  • Ensure USB ports are enabled in BIOS.
  • Try a different USB plug.
I had an older version of this adapter. One day it just stopped working all together and nothing I did got it to work, on any computer. If the above steps don't resolve your problem, the adapter may have just stopped working all together.

Usage of KVM 2-Port USB between 'thin client' and 'Desktop' stopt


KVM are not the most reliable and will fail sometimes. The quickest way to get it back is to plug into a different USB port for the one that is active.

USB wireless internet adapter disconnecting


Sounds like the usb ports are sharing an I/O channel. So when you unplug one usb device the CPU is being told that the USB port is not being used.....Maybe..... To test this, hardwire into a data cable and plug in different devices, next unplug a devise and see what happens. If you stay connected you may have found your answer. Unfortunately I don’t think a reimage or restore will fix the problem. If you get the same result try a reimage of your OS. Good luck.

Again sound like a mother board issue.

Questions to ask, When did I notice the problem (Maybe able to restore to the point the problem started.) and did I install new software or hardware when this happened?


Good Luck

Wireless adapter used to work, then stopped, then worked again, now can't be detected...


you mean that the adapter is not being recognised by the pc as a usb device, this adapter works better on a usb2.0 port, not as well on a usb1.0 port, depending on how old your pc is, try other ports., but you must uninstal the belkin driver from add/remove programmes, then install the driver again and inset adapter in a different usb port than before.

the adapter should then be found and click install driver automatically, but leave the cd in the drive as it normally picks the driver up again from the disk on it's own even after installing it yourself.

When installed i would recommend using windows wireless zero configuration (windows own software) instead of the belkin software, to do this right click on the network icon and select enable WZC (windows zero config), as this is a more stable programme for connecting your adapter signal to the router

Personally Belkin is poor in my opinion, netgear has better software and drivers, but it's belkin you have, so follow the above and it should be ok.

Wont connect to wireless network


first, I suggest trying a different USB port. remove the adapter and the icon should disappear, so if the usb port is loose or broken that may be why its acting like that. Plug it into a different port and try it. You may have to reinstall the driver for the next usb port depending on your system
