Please check your device manager, and look for the Network Adapters to see the status of your Network Card. First check if it is detected in the Network Adapter, If there is a yellow expression mark near it then you may need to reload the driver. Otherwise you can do a ping 127.0.0.1 on a command prompt (DOS) if it replies back then your Network Card is working finely.
Cheers.

Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

I have a Acer Aspire desktop PC. I am running


It shouldn't get hot. Warm, perhaps, but not HOT.

One of two things are wrong:
There is a problem with the power regulator on the USB adaptor
0r
The antenna circuitry is not in match (impedence mismatch) with the rf amplifier and the rf amplifier is overheating.

If other units plugged into your USB port(s) do not overheat, I would think that rules out a problem with the PC.

Hello mccree08,

The installed network adapters can be viewed in the windows device manager which can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)

•In the Control Panel, Select Device Manager

•In Device Manager, Select 'Network Adapters'

The netgear wpn 511 adapter will appear there if it is correctly installed.

If this solution is helpful please click 'YES' by 'Was this helpful?' below.

Have a great day,

Normally you setup a passkey or use 0000 or 9999 as a passkey.

The question is, does that pop up when you try to connect a USB device? Do you get that when you try to install the dongle? (That shouldn't happen). If you are trying to connect a PDA or cell phone, you setup the passkey for the connecting device on the computer then type it in to the PDA or mobile phone. If you are trying to connect a bluetooth headset, then you use whatever code is from the manufactorer. Normally this is 0000 or 9999.

Hope this helps!

This has happened to my brother in-law several times! I have fixed it twice myself by downloading the driver package from Sierra Wireless DO NOT USE THE ATT SOFTWARE, at least in an Acer 6920, as it trashes Vista beyond repair. Have no idea why they keep selling this, and why they keep telling him to do it all over again. Didn't work from the very beginning, and the ATT salesman did the first install, telling him that he would just have to restart it at home and it would be "all better" - yeah right, now we know why he doesn't work for a real computer company!!!

Are you sure that you installed the windows xp drivers and not the vista drivers? There may be no xp drivers for your laptop, and if thats the case, you'll have to switch back to vista. Make sure you know 100% that its the xp drivers.
