Question about Linksys WUSB54GSC Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter w/ SpeedBooster [WUSB54GSC] (LS-SB54GSC)
I never had any problems with my adapter before now. My computer was off, and I turned it back on. Usually it automatically connects, but it wasn't this time. I looked at the program it runs through and it said that the adapter was inactive, which usually only happened if the adapter was unplugged previously. So, I proceeded to unplug the adapter and plug it back in. Nothing happened. My computer didn't even make a sound like it had registered me unplugging and plugging in anything though the USB port like it usually did. The adapter has a light on it that, when working properly, flashes a bright green when in use. Now all it has is a dim green light that is barely noticeable. I've tried re-installing the software and that didn't work. I also made sure that it wasn't the particular USB port that it was plugged in, and every port works fine with other USB devices.
And in case it might have something to do with it my computer is a Dell Dimension E510 running Windows XP Media Center.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Go to Start -> Control panel -> Network connections. Right click on your wireless device and click enable. It should work after that.

Tips for a great answer:
Click start control panel network and internet look for wireless
"Allow the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive" might be ticked untick it
Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.
From the pop-up menu select "Enable."
This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.
Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.
After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.
click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'
(or similar) and click 'enable'.
if this fails to fix the problem
try unplugging the usb wireless device
uninstall the netgear software in the add/remove programs in the control panel reboot and then reinstall the software then plug in the usb wireless adapter
hope this helps
