What I recommend is to uninstall the driver and reinstall it back again.Incase the 1st solution doesn't work then you need to uninstall the other driver off first,like sound and display, and install this wirless beferore them.I think conflict with the other driver.
Best of luck,takecare

    I'm sorry I wasn out of town.So my last suggestion can be that its not enough power on the USB port. But you said it was working fine when you use in Win98!!!! So my quesiton is that

    1.Did you plug on the same port like last time ?

    2.Did you use any external usb port ?? If so try to connect directly behind you computer.

    3.My last quest here is that ...if you still have the same problem then it can be all of a sudden you have a bad USB port..mean not enough power supply for your USB port.

When you insert the setup disk on your computer, you can exit from the setup and then connect the adapter to the computer and a new window will popup "Found New Hardware Wizzard" and in that select the option "Install the drivers Automatically" and click on next, so it will automatically search for the drivers and install it on your computer...
