Windows XP is not recognizing the driver

I could sucessfully install the bluetooth functionality but the wireless is not working. When I plug the device the window of new hardware found appears in the screen, however when I follow the steps to find the hardware Windows XP can't find the driver. I'm selectig "No, no this time" and then "Install the software automatically". Could you please help me with this?

    Hi... Thanks for your help. The problem was that I was using the driver downloaded from Trendnet webpage... that driver is bad... I used the driver provided in the cd (I didn't use before because my cd cas was broke) and then the process just worked fine... finally I could configure the wireless in my lapton.

    Thanks a lot !

Unless you have service pack 2 which supports bluetooth without the need for a driver in some cases, you will need a driver cdrom, to which you will have to point windows to when it comes to the installing the driver, choose to install it manually then browse your cd drive and then the disc and don't choose install automatically.

Bluetooth Icon disappered after downgrading from VISTA -->XP

the bluetooth light you see is associated with both wireless (WiFi) and Bluetooth radios being on or off.  This does not mean you have the bluetooth software installed. You'll need to go to and choose your system (or type your service tag when requested) and download the drivers for your bluetooth.

Furthermore, make sure you have Windows XP with Service Pak 2 or higher installed before installing any bluetooth software. :)
