What kind of card is this?

If it's a network card...I guess that I don't see the connection between it and USB.

If it's a wireless USB card, that's a different animal.

Whatever it is...did you install the drivers from the CD which accompanied it?

OK, so it's a wireless network card...nothing to do with USB :thumbsup:.

Did you take a look in Device Manager to see if there are indications of problems with it? It should be reflected under the Network Adapters category and...tell us if you see any yellow or red markings (indicating a problem with the device).

Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc, hit OK.

What info is reflected in Device Manager (maker, model)?

Manufacturer and model of computer system?

And...why did you think there's a connection between this card and USB? Are you having problems with USB devices?

Hi and welcome to BC

That's right.
If you think you have promblems with you USB ports you can check by going to
GO to Start>RUN> devmgmt.msc
Under USB controllers see if there is any ! ? X
