I just get the Bing when I insert the adapter, but the pop-up "found new hardware", does not pop-up. Nor can I use the Add Hardware feature, it just says "please plug in adapter", or something similiar.

Did you plug it in to your desktop and did the found new hardware wizard pop up? If it is an older version chances are Windows will recognize it and install it automatically. Once it is installed search for wireless networks to connect to just like it was a laptop.
Yes there's a big chance that the wireless adapter is bad already since there's no light came up when you connected it to the USB port, try to connect it on a different USB port and if still no light on it the adapter is already bad.
After uninstalling it completely from the computer. When you plug in the adapter alone. You must get the "Found New Hardware" wizard. And nothing else apart from this. Only then it is correct. If nothing comes up at all, the device is dead or your version of USB might USB 1.0 or USB 1.1 which at times has issues. But if you see that wizard coming up, unplug the adapter and insert CD and run setup and walk through it.
Anyway, i ll recommend that you try this adapter on other NEW computer(laptop or desktop), just to check. I feel that this adapter would work on a new computer, maybe your computer's hardware specifications are old to support this device.
hi.. every wireless router must be configured first using the ethernet cable and not the USB cable.. i think thats the problem.. but i am not sure.. you can try this out.. i was asked to do so for my wireless router..
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.
