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.

Try it in a differant port and a differant computer. If it doesn't recognize it then it is definitly dead. It should recognize it or that something has been inserted.

The reason to check in a different computer is that sometimes it is your usb that is the problem so that rules it out and you can toss it in the bin.

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.

If you are able to access the Internet on this computer - then there is likely no problem with the adapter. More likely is that the networking is not configured properly.

To my knowledge, this laptop does not have an in-build wireless card. You will need to purchase a wireless USB adaptor such as pixel-clr.gif Netgear WPN111 or a D-Link WUA-1340. You can go into any computer store and ask or a wireless USB adaptor. They're fairly inexpensive ($10 - $50).

Simply load the drivers onto the laptop and plug it in. Scan for your network and connect. The manual that accompanies the USB adaptor will give you all the details you need for this.

first of all, to check the wireless card on a friends network or a public hotspot, like starbucks. if that internet is slow, then most likely it is your wireless card that is on the fritz. otherwise, if it is fine on these networks there is a compatability issue with your router and your cards. make sure that if your router is very old, it is still compatible with a newer adapter.(e.g. n-wirelesscards maynot work with b-routers. and a-wireless cards will not work with b/g/n routers...or vise-versa.)
