If you're comfortable having a look at your BIOS screens, then have a look for an entry mentioning USB 2.0. See if it is enabled. If it isn't, enable it, save changes, and reboot.
You can usually get into BIOS by tapping the Delete key on your keyboard during bootup, but some motherboard manufacturers have different ones. Just read on the screen during boot up what button to look for.
Hope that helps.
Cheers from NZ

SOURCE: I have installed a NETGEAR Wireless USB model WNA1100 and it is working fine. How do I change to a different Host Controller which is installed on my XP computer?

This will give control to the best controller for the device. That is why it is called a "Root controller."

"Out of Paper" problem

i,d suggest the paper sensor that you,ve disabled is suspect.
Alternatively, could be a cabling error.
Try a new printer cable, if this fails uninstall remove completely all software and printer, along with cabling. start computer/shutdown. re setup the whole printer as a new installation. if non of this works. Bin it and buy a new printer.
Finally if you,ve got standard windows 98. upgrade to 98se. might help.

First off you need to connect the printer to your computer. Make sure the fax is plugged into the phone line. Then install the correct drivers for your printer.

If you have vista follow this: link click here

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
