Sky wireless/Belkin usb adaptor

  Big Carter 20:27 22 Sep 2007


I have just installed Sky Broadband (Wireless), and a Belkin wireless USB adaptor, and now when I turn on my PC it freezes sometimes - forcing me to reboot.

Using Windows XP.

Advice anyone?

It would only be the Belkin USB adapter causing the problem , probably the drivers have got corrupted in some way , uninstall the drivers , reboot the PC , re-install BEFORE plugging the USB adapter in ( the way XP likes it ). How old is the PC ? on some older slow booting ones it is better to boot without the adapter in place , let it finish starting then plug in .
