Hi.
I have just made a dual boot system with my win7 pc and installed XP SP3 Pro on it.
When I go into Win7 my netgear adapter works pergectly but when I tried to install it on Win XP it doesnt even recognise that it is plugged in but it does recognise my other adapter which i prefer not to use although I would if it was the only option.

The problem with the one that is recognised is that it doesnt seem to react to the drivers and I have tried doing everything the setup program says but it still wont work.

If anyone could tell me why XP doesnt even know that my netgear adapter is plugged in it would be great.

Or maybe tell me how to fix the problem with the other one ?? - It's a BELKIN F5D7050 Wirteless adapter.


Hope to hear from someone soon.

Thanks

P.S.

If I have put this in the wrong section then I apologise in advance.
