Question about Dell DIMENSION 3000 CELERON 2.4GHZ CD-RW,80GB,256MB WINDOWS XP DESKTOP PC (074576101317)

1 Answer

When I try to uninstall my lynksys USB network adapter software, a window pops up that says: "An installation support file could not be installed. The system can't find the file specified." Is there something that I can type into "run" on on the start menu to remove this software? I have Windows XP.

    Maybe you can help with this... I could only get online by doing a system restore. So I tried to fix the problem by uninstalling service pack 3 and installing the latest version. I did this successfullly but it didn't seem to solve my problem and when I uninstalled SP3, I lost all my restore points so now I can't get online at all.

    I have Dell Dimension 8200 if that helps.

I just bought the NetGear wireless adapter today. the process runs smoothly until it asks me to hook the wireless adapter. A box pops up stating "detecting wireless adapter" it stays like that...


It looks like your NetGear WNA3100 is dead out of the box.
The software looks like it operating correctly (runs the installed diag, tries to detect, etc.), but
the software isn't having any luck finding the hardware.
The reason that the adapter is disabled in Device Management, is that the software seems
to have correctly installed the driver, but Windows couldn't detect (plug & play) the device, so
Windows didn't enable the device driver - Windows won't load a driver for a non-existent device.
Other (remote) possibilities:
(a) Wi-Fi adapter plugged into a bad USB port. - try another port.
(b) there's a little corrosion on USB contacts of USB port or WNA3100. Try plugging adapter
in and out of the port a few times (this shines up the contacts a bit).
(c) there's a slight misalignment of contacts within the USB connector or either the laptop, or
the WNA3100.
Your fix may be returning the NetGear WNA3100 to the retailer for an exchange.

Hello antonhs2000,

I assume you went through the direct instructions located HERE. It does not suggest a restart anywhere on the page, so I would suggest doing that. I have always made it a habit to restart my computer after uninstalling drivers and installing drivers as well just to be safe.

If you have or have had a linksys wireless networking device on your computer its software is the cause for the error. You must uninstall the device using its supplied installation cd. Using the windows add/remove software utility does not remove the software. It will remain on your system even if not visible on the installed programs list. Insert the installation cd then exit/cancel out of the installation. Click START then MY COMPUTER then right click on the drive showing the linksys name. Click OPEN then click the "utility" folder. There you will click on the "setup" icon. This will run the uninstall utility and remove all the linksys software from your computer. There is more than one "setup" file at this stage, the one you want will show "setup.exe" as its description as you roll the cursor over it.When its done remove the cd and restart the computer. You can install linksys usb networking devices using the windows new hardware wizard and they will run with no problems.

Cannot Install Ativa Drivers


Hi Mark,

apparently you are not the only one having problems installing that device. See here.

So my suggestion would be to download the driver from here.
(90Mb??? - can that thing make coffee too?. Oh I see...they included Internet Explorer 6 in that package...Jeez..).

I just assume that you're running Win XP, but the procedure for Vista is similar.

Unzip the file.

Important: Do NOT use their setup.exe!

Plug in the USB adapter and let Windows try to install it. When it can't find the driver, point to the directory, where you unzipped the files. The file you're looking for is called "ODWGU.inf".
If Windows installs some driver which might not work, go into the Device Manager and update the driver from there.

If you have problems uninstalling their software, try "Revo Uninstaller". This software has a "Hunter Mode", that will help to uninstall even the most obnoxious software. I use it all the time, because it also removes all the **** that Windows uninstallers leave behind.

Ideally you have a clean machine to start from, so you might want to begin with removing their software first.

Please let me know if this worked for you.

We have windows XP desk top. Can't install the drivers for the DWA-111 but the router works fine.


What specific error message/s does your computer prompt when you trying to install the wireless USB adapter? Since your running Windows XP you can skip on "run the CD first", try uninstalling all the componets for the adapter then restart the computer, when the computer is booted up properly insert the USB adapter(preferably used the USB port on the back of your desktop for maximum power). When the found new hardware wizard pops up, choose install software automatically(make sure that the setup CD for the USB adapter is already loaded on the CD-ROM drive then hit next.
If the installation proceeds click on finish a bubble should appear on the lower right hand side of your dekstop screen(syatem tray) prompting you that one or more wireless network is being detected, click the baloon and check if your network will show up on the list.

Failed to install


Belkin drivers are a bit of a pain, uninstall the drivers again and remove the usb adapter, and follow exactly as per instructions, normally driver first, but ignore the pop up about the driver not being a signed windows if it does, just click install anyway. toward the end of the installation you should be prompted to connect the usb adapter, the hardware should be found and then the installation should complete. If driver installed ok but the adapter cant find the the driver plug it into a different usb port and again the found hardware should pop up then install driver popup should show and you should select install automatically.
