wireless adaptor will not connect !!!!

  Petesilver 11:44 10 Mar 2010

I am wondering if there is anyone out there who can solve my problem.
My isp is orange and I have one of their Livebox and recently I have been having
problems in that the wireless adaptor will not connect to the Livebox it will sometimes
on a reboot but not always. I have connected the livebox with the cable and everything
works OK but I cannot get it to work wirelessly.
I have contacted Orange who said I needed a new adaptor so I bought one from them
however after over an hour on the phone they could not get that one to work at all
(it was a Thompson adaptor) and said they would ring back and they did only to say
it is my PC at fault so I honestly do not know what to do. I know I can stay with the cable
but in the future I was going to move and will need the wireless connection.
I also have a laptop and that works wirelessly with no problem.
If it is my Desktop can any think of what might be causing the problem as Orange
have given up on me and going to accept the Thompson adaptor back for credit.

Have you tried deleting the existing wireless "profile" and then going through the procedure to "Connect" again, when a new profile will be created?
