Hi there, no need to reinstall operating system. You may need to load the driver for the wireless adapter. Whta operating system is running on your computer? If XP, the adapter may use the built in driver for XP. you just need to plug it in and run the install wizard all the way out. Then locate the wireless network connection icon found in the tray near the clock. Right click and select view available wireless network. Select the wireless network you're trying to connect to. If using a pass key supply the correct pass key and once connected, you should be able to go online.

That's because wireless protocol "N" wasn't invented when XP was written. Either buy a "G" wireless adapter (which will work with XP) or upgrade your operating system to Vista or 7.

I had a working Dell computer - accessing the internet through a wireless router - computer became unbearably slow - re-installed Windows XP 2002 SP1 everything's fine except the network adapter that was...


You don't say what make/model of network adapter (NIC), whether it's wired or wireless, or if it was operating under the same service pack level before, so I have to make a lot of assumptions.

Is Windows really not recognizing it (ie: does it have an exclamation mark next to the NIC in device manager?) or is it being recognized by Windows but just cannot connect to the wireless router? If the latter, check your wireless configuration (SSID, WPA key, etc). Since you have WinXP SP1, it could be that there is not a driver for that particular NIC. Later service packs include updated drivers as well as bug and security fixes. Recommend you identify the NIC and if you have the driver disk for it, go into Windows device manager to select a reinstall from that disk. If you don't have it, use another computer to download its driver and after installing it and getting Internet access, you should also download and install the latest SP, which would be SP3.

Installed this driver and everything installed ok except it can't aquire network address


Computer not able to acquire the IP address is not an issue with the wireless adapter all-together. Check the device status for this Wireless N Mini USB wireless adapter under the Network Adapter category. It should say: This device is working properly.
If this is the case, you may check for any driver updates with the manufacturer.
Check for any Firewalls like Norton, McAfee, Zonealarm, Comodo, etc. Turn them off or configure them properly.
Update the operating system using Windows Automatic Updates.
On the wireless transmitter, try changing the wireless security type as "WEP" preferably 64-bit WEP with a hexadecimal password.
Finally, if even that doesn't help, try to assign static IP on the wireless network connection by right clicking on Wireless Network Connections and click Properties. Now ensure a tick next to Internet Protocol version 4. Highlight it and click on Properties on this page. Refer to your wireless router or wireless modem vendor to get this assigned.

For further clarifications, please revert!
Thanks for asking.
