Ativa Wireless-G USB Network Adapter

Uses 45% to 50% CPU time when enabled. I have to disable Wi-Fi if I need to do any CPU intensive tasks, like video editing, etc.... My system is up to date Core 2 Duo and 2 GB of RAM. I run Windows XP. Tried re-installing the adapter several times - same problem.

I know this is a really.. REALLY old topic but I just now solved it for me anywho.
I opened up the Ativa utility Went to the Options tab and selected "Use the Standard Windows XP Utility Instead.", Saved Changes then went to the systems tray, right clicked onthe utility, then exited it.

Here is a link to the driver for your device from the ativa website. The version number is 1.0.0.3. Click on the Small down arrow on the right and you will get the download screen. Try uninstalling the adaptor then reinstalling with this one.

The only other suggestions I could find on the website is to try another usb port. Not much help.

Is this for a Notebook or a Desktop?

Enable / Disable an Enterprise Laptop's Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, short for Wireless Fidelity, is networking technology that allows you to connect to the Internet. If you have a wireless-enabled Latitude computer you can connect to the Internet when in range of an access point called a hotspot.
When not in use your Latitude's wireless card should be disabled. By disabling Wi-Fi, you will receive two benefits:
Start-up times will be much faster.
If the wireless card is ON and you are out of the office (not connected to your normal, wired connection), the laptop will try to use the Wi-Fi network during the login process to run the various start-up scripts, etc. It will eventually time-out (fail). By having the wireless card turned OFF, the start-up process will be much faster.
Computer will not continually search for a wireless network (and waste battery life).
If you are in the office (connected to your normal, wired connection) or in a location where there is no wireless hotspot, you don't need to have the computer waste processing power by looking and looking for a wireless hotspot. By disabling Wi-Fi, you will gain a little more power for your other tasks. In addition, you will maximize your battery operating time by disabling wireless activity.
NOTE: After your Latitude has started up completely, you can ENABLE the wireless card and connect to a wireless hotspot. For example, a wireless router at your home or at a local coffee shop. If you have connected to this hotspot previously, the wireless card should connect automatically for you.
NOTE: Once you have the wireless card enabled, before you shut down the computer, you should again DISABLE the card. The computer will then be ready for the next time you turn it on with wireless turned off.
Enable / Disable with Hardware Switch
The more recent Latitude models have a wireless switch to enable or disable wireless network devices and the
Wi-Fi Catcher Network Locator.
Dell Latitude E6420 and E6520 Series
These laptops have a small switch on the RIGHT side of the keyboard. The switch is toward the front of the laptop. The Wi-Fi Catcher™ icon will is above the keyboard. You will see a lit radio tower if the wireless switch is enable
