I have a stand alone pc. I dont' remember ever installing anything that looks like this item but I am getting this same "found new hardware message" that all these guys are getting. Is it possible that this item can be used as hardware within a network to link a stand alone pc with appropriate drivers & internet connection to a remote network? Please advise... Thanks - MKA

Hi Khaista. Get the FREE version of IOBIT Driver Booster. It is excellent and unlike many so-called free driver updaters, does not want payment before will do anything. It is excellent at finding items that need drivers and downloading and installing them. http://www.iobit.com/driver-booster.php As an example, I obtained a new USB WiFi adapter for a client's laptop (where the built-in WiFi receiver had stopped working) that did not come with any driver CD. Windows 7 could not find a driver, either on the computer nor on the Internet. IOBIT's Driver Booster sorted it out quickly, found and installed the right driver and within a few minutes everything was working fine.
The most common way to install a printer on a home network is to install it as a stand-alone device on the network, and then add a connection to the printer on each computer that is on the network.
Wireless printers use a built-in wireless card and plug into a power source, not your network or computer. After you turn on the printer, you need to refer to the information that came with the printer to set up a wireless connection to each computer on a home network. Security options for wireless printing are determined by each printer manufacturer.

Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help
Windows 7 should download the driver by itself, try to connect the pc to internet trough a wired connection and run windows update, then look in the "optional updates" and select the checkbox of the wireless card item. once downloaded windows shold install it alone. I hope you can make it work!
I suspect the "Drivers" folder may end up on YOUR PC's Hard Drive? The "Setup" may extract the files & Driver to a directory on your PC, OR into Program Files. & the "Drivers" will be there? after you run setup, go to device manager select the device and Update Drivers, get it to search the PC to find it, or if you have found it, then point it in the right direction.
Well you may have to disable the Modem... temporarily. While you want to access the Access Point. Also you probably are going to want to get a browser like Firefox or Opera, anything but what you use now, install it as a stand alone program in the root of C:\ drive, DON'T import any settings etc. Use that browser to when you access the AP.
First make sure the card (if a stand alone card ) is properly set in place (you'll have to open the computer and manually test it . Do this with the computer off!). If this is not the case or, you have the card built into the motherboard, you should re-install the drivers from your original installation CD. Otherwise you may need a friend or, atrip to a library/colleg etc, to download the proper drivers.
The Bluetooth adapter should be able to be used with Win XP's own drivers, try uninstalling the drivers that you got with the adapter and dis connect it.
Re-connect your adapter back in and right click on an item you want to send via bluetooth and it will say 'send to bluetooth device'.
Please note this will only work with Win XP SP2 not SP1
