Laptop does not recognize the wireless adapter

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.

WHY does it not recognize the adapter??????

I have an older version of the linksys wireless adapter WUSB11B, how do I get it to work with my desk top

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.

Wireless adapter not found please plug-in the DWA-120

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.

Dell inspiron laptop doesn't recognize wireless adapter after Windows reinstall

If you are able to, simply
1. Go online via the ethernet plug in port at a friend's place, or if you flash a smile and ask nicely at a place with wi-fi, they will have a hardline plugin as well. This is my first suggestion.
2. You can use a jump drive and go to (my computer is a dell) dell's website and check their drivers page, you can simply search it on their main page along with their support page. Then just look for the appropriate wireless drivers, and save them onto your jump drive, then run them on your computer and bada-bing bada-boom! you should be up and going, I ran into this everytime I reinstalled my OS on my laptop and my desktop :P sux that it isn't more automatic, but if you keep the drivers on a disk or your jump drive you can use them again.

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.
