Question about 2wire (1000-100052-000) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
Because there's not a whole lot to choose from where I am, I recently got AT&T's u-verse service and was given a 2wire wireless usb adapter (model US-G-AT-02) for my desktop, and a 2wire 3800HGV-B router. Everything worked fine till I booted up one day and it said it was missing a skin. I inserted the CD that came with it and hit the repair function. When the screen came up that asked for my SN and key I used the same ones that had worked before. It told me that it couldn't connect, possibly due to a bad key. I retyped it several times till it took me straight to the 2wire wireless manager which said that it could not detect the card. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it with no success. There is also a program in add/remove programs called "2Wire Wireless LAN USB Driver" that tries to get me to reinstall the manager when I click "remove", that I cannot seem to get rid of. I've searched on the internet and found people with the same problem but no solutions. When I try using the hardware wizard on windows XP, it just says that it cannot find the right software. Plus, whenever I uninstall (then reboot) then try to reinstall, the menu from the 2wire CD asks me if I'm sure I want to UNINSTALL the wireless manager before taking me to the install screen. I tried downloading the drivers straight from their site with no success. The wireless manager and computer just doesn't want to pick up the adapter anymore. It's not a hardware problem because I tried switching it out with one from another desktop and it had the same issue. It worked fine not long ago and I haven't made any changes to the system, so I'm not sure why it was missing a skin in the first place. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
*Heres the thing youre doing the right thing install the driver, make sure that you remove the the 2wire wireless manager in the add/remove program and leave the 2Wire Wireless LAN USB driver
*To connect your computer to the 2WIRE router make sure you know your SSID or the network name and the network key, if you call the AT&T Uverse tech support they will ask you to configure the wireles network key to your phone number
*The default SSID is 2wire and the last 3 digits of the serial number of your Router and the Default Netowrk key is located @ the bottom of the router theres a sticker and it is under S/N

Try checking your wireless security settings to make sure you are using the correct wireless key (password).

You don't have to excuse yourself - we all started at some point.
The main problem with your setup is that your desktop has to be on in order to print from the laptop.
What you in general have to do is to '''share" the printer with your laptop.
I will assume that you are running Windows (XP or Vista) on both of your computers.
This is a very general description. If this doesn't work or you need more details, come back here and leave a comment with the following details:
