On booting pc from cold the air plus adapter fails to connect to the router. Nothing I do seems to get it to connect, except to keep moving the adapter to different usb ports. I could live with this niggle but the same problem has arisen on a second pc in the house. Any ideas?. Once connected,there is no problem.
I agree with FE. I frequently use a D-Link GWL-122 Adapter when I am rebuilding machines. Typically on Windows 98 and a clean install, Windows Updates will suddenly take priority on the boot up sequence.
When I reach the point which you describe I simply remove the adapter from Add/Remove Programs, reboot and reinstall the software. As FE states, connecting the USB adapter last. Thereafter all works normally.
