Make sure that you have installed the necessary drivers needed for it to work. it usually comes with a CD installer that you can use.

If you're done with the driver installation you may check if the device was properly installed under the device manager.

How to go to Device Manager:

1. right click on My Computer
2. select properties
3. go to hardware tab and click Device Manager

You will see all devices installed on your computers and under the Adapter is where the name of your wireless adapter should be listed if it was properly installed.

Hope this helps...

I have tried in vain to get the USB connection on my Westell 6100 to work. Are there some tricks to making this happen? The ethernet connection will work fine, but I cannot get the USB setup to work at...


I suggest that you use ethernet connection instead of the USB connection.

Ethernet is more stable that USB, you less likely to experience dropped connections.

Also take note that you can only use one connection at a time. You CANNOT use Ethernet on one computer, then USB on the other computer.

But if you insist to use the USB connection, you need to install the drivers. Once the usb cable is connected to the modem and computer, you will get a found new hardware wizard screen. Then you will need to insert the CD that came with the adapter to your computer.

If the found new hardware wizard did not appear, check your device manager and look if there is a USB adapter with a question mark or exclamation point. Right click on the USB adapter then click reinstall.

It should detect the drivers from the cd.

Good luck and have a great day!

My computer will not install the wireless USB software. I need help. I get through the first couple of prompts and then it just looks like it keeps loading but does not.


What is the operating system on your computer. If it is windows XP or VISTA, then try to install the adapter using the found new hardware wizard.
Do not run the disc that comes with the wireless adapter. connect the adapter to the computer first. you will get the message found new hardware.
if you do not get the message that means the adapter is detected by the computer or the software might be installed already. uninstall the software and then connect he adapter.
If you get the found new hard ware message then it will ask you can windows connect ....
select = no not at this time and click next.
on the next window select the option install software automatically and insert the disc that comes with the adapter. it will install the software .
after that you will need to connect to the network.

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

Failed to install


Belkin drivers are a bit of a pain, uninstall the drivers again and remove the usb adapter, and follow exactly as per instructions, normally driver first, but ignore the pop up about the driver not being a signed windows if it does, just click install anyway. toward the end of the installation you should be prompted to connect the usb adapter, the hardware should be found and then the installation should complete. If driver installed ok but the adapter cant find the the driver plug it into a different usb port and again the found hardware should pop up then install driver popup should show and you should select install automatically.
