I have an old PC which runs Windows XP and some other distros. It has been using a netgear PCI card and a cable to connect to my broadband router.. I decided it was time to get rid of the cable and installed a USB LB-Link wireless adaptor, using the manufacturers CD. All the non-windows distros work OK with the adapter. According to the System Hardware manager, the adapter and drivers are working correctly, but ....... Every time I boot into Win XP it spends a lot of time stuck on trying to acquire an IP address. If i do nothing. it will stay stuck but I have found that just removing the adapter and putting it back in the same USB slot causes it to connect OK. I am at a loss to understand what's going on. It is clearly more an inconvenience than a critical event. I should be grateful for any help or advice in getting the adapter to work as it does in the non-windows distros.
PS. The heading should read "Wireless connection problem" and not "Wirelee connection problem". There does not seem a way to alter the heading
