USB port.

Recommended Posts

Surely a USB port either works or does not work, there can't be no in between.

Which is what seems to be happening to me.

I have been trying to install a Belkin wireless USB network adapter on a computer.

Everything starts ok, I install the software, it tells me to plug in the adaptor, I plug it in, it gets recognised, the installation carries on, the computer reboots, blah blah blah.

I go to configure the adaptor, and windows cannot see it anymore, it tells me to plug it in, I already did during the installation and windows could see it then, why not now?

I have phoned Belkin support and they tell me the USB port is at fault.

Is there a way that anybody knows that will check for full functioning of USB ports?

2.)  Purchase a USB 2.0 PCI card for about $9 USD.

This is what I have thought to be the best option all along.

I'm still curious as to why the ports are recognised during installation though and not after.

And if the two that Tarun mentioned failed, try this port

Cheers :D

How did I know you would suggest something like that? :D

Heheh.

Well I thought that if Tarun's suggestions didn't work, and you used a full one of what I suggested you wouldn't care in the end... :D

Cheers :D
