Hi Everyone, I'm hoping someone might be able to offer me some guidance.
I have just set up my wireless network using a Belkin G+ MIMO Modem Router & Belkin G+ Mimo USB adapter. However, since going 'wireless', my PC periodically locks-up for no apparent reason, and the only course of action is to restart it.
I did have trouble with a poor signal from the router, but this has now been replaced and seems to be OK.
It locked up when the router was disconnected (and I was at the store replacing it), so it doesn't appear to be that.
I have tried unplugging the USB adapter when it is locked but this doesn't help either. It doesn't seem to be related to running anything in particular, in fact it often happens when the system is 'idle'.
It doesn't lock up if the USB adapter is unplugged, but the adapter has been exchanged for another so I don't think it is faulty, more likely a conflict somewhere.
Can anyone tell me if there are any known issues with lock-up associated with the Belkin adapter.
Belking suggested updating the drivers for the USB ports which I have done, but the problem still occurs.
My system is a Gigabyte GA-7VA motherboard, an Athlon 2800+ 2.09Ghz processor, 768Mb RAM and I am running Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 2 (if that helps)
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
