If you installed this in a win98 operating system you need to install the driver and if this was installed to winxp this is a plug and play because automatically winxp recognizes usb.

I purchased a Restore DVD for my Gateway MX8738, after the restore was completed I was not able to connect wirelessly. In device Manager under Network Adapters I see an Intel PRO/100 VE Network Adapter...

I would get on another computer that works and find the Network Adapter file for your Gateway and download on a USB drive and take over and install on the non-working Gateway.

I need gigaware pci card express drivers for usb 3.0 card

I did a little digging and found that Radio Shack actually stopped carrying the Gigaware card, BUT they have a new card from Startech and guess what it looks almost exactly identical to. Long story short I tried the drivers for the Startech version and it installed without a hitch and detected the card right away.

Here are the drivers I used.

Download from lg800g to computer

Is your Micro USB cable a "B" or "A"?Micro USB "B" is for data/charging.
Micro USB "A" is for charging only and will not work for any kind of data transfer (pins not connected).
The connector will be labeled at the micro usb end.
When you plug the cable into your phone a popup will ask you if you want to connect to mass storage. Once you answer yes, you can connect to the phone just like a usb drive.

Winxp sp3 andwin7 cannot recognized its USB adapter saying that it is an unknown device, i've tried to remove it from device manager and reboot, i also tried to update the driver through windows update...

The easiest way to figure out what is going on is to try the adapter on a different computer. If it is still good it will be detected. Usually when a usb device fails it may be recognized or is recognized only as a usb device but it will not work. You don;t have to install any drivers just to test this on another computer unless you want to make sure it is fully functional. It is also possible that the usb ports on the computer are not working or one isn't. Simpley use on of the other ports.The usb port controller usually operate a pair of usb ports so try all the ports. You may get a problem with one port or pair but rarely all at the same time.

I think you will find that the adapter itself is your problem and will probably need to be replaced.

I was just given an older laptop that does not have internal wifi so it came with a wireless adapter. I've never used one so I have no idea where to begin. There is no brand name or model name on it....

you prolly need to load the drivers for the adapter......if its possible that you can connect the laptop to the modem/router with Ethernet cable, then insert the card and run windows updates and see if windows finds a driver for it......once it does and installs....then the wireless card "should" see the wireless signal off of your router

Cant find where to install a wireless card internally to my dell inspiron 2600

You can't install any cards internally as there isn't any room inside. If you want to add wireless capability you'll need a USB wireless adapter which you just plug in to one of the USB ports. This computer also has PCMCIA (card-bus) slots, but that's older technology. USB adapters are much easier to find.

Can i setup wifi on my t2692 emachine?

Yes, you can set up wifi with any computer or laptop. All you need is a USB wifi dongle. Get one online from or from Fry's or Best Buy or a Radio Shack stores. Get a Chinese one, cheap and as good as any.

I dont know how to connect wireless internet from one computer to another

You will need a wireless adapter for the other computer. You can get an external wireless USB adapter to connect to your wireless network. Simply plug it in and install the software. There will be a tutorial on the procedure which should include how to set encryption to keep nearby wireless networks from spying on you.

If you do not have an unused USB port, you can connect a USB hub to add additional ports or install an internal adapter instead. If your computer has an available slot, purchase a wireless internal network adapter, and then open the packaging and read the instructions. Insert the CD that comes with the adapter in your computer, and follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the necessary software.

After connecting to the usb, led lights up, then off, windows does not detect it.

Is the hub you mention, an extension from another usb port only, as the adapter may need to be powered and require a AC/DC powered hub to work.
