Re: repair usb wireless
If you right-click on My Computer -> Properties -> Adanced Tab -> Device Manager. If you don't already see your wireless adapter there, try clicking the plus sign next to Network Adapters. Right-click the wireless device, go to properties and you can check your device there.

1.Don't plug your WLAN USB adapter until setup finish and reset the computer 2.Download

Sounds as if your router may need to be set to enable wireless connection and enable DHCP, this alocates your wireless adapter an I.P Address automatically.
If this is alraedy the case, check the properties of your adapter to see if it's set to recieve I.P address automatically.
If still no joy find your routers I.P. address and DNS address (this is what you type in your web browser to set it up).
If your router is 192.168.2.1 or similair, set your adapter at 192.168.2.2 and the same DNS address normally 255.255.255.0.
Restart both pc and router and try again.
Also make sure network sharing has been set up via the XP wizard.
This is one of those Cuckoo! problems.
Assuming you have enabled your wireless connections again, have you tried a system restore to a few days before you dissabled the connection to see if the settings as they should; revert back to before the problem.
If all other devices work in usb ports can't be that, if the device works in another pc, can't be that, so it's back to the software driver or a usb controller problem, on your pc that cannot start the device.
