I have a US Robotics USR2249 which has stopped functioning.
It plugs into one of the ports on the Dlink 504 ADSL router which has an ip address of 192.168.0.10 and is set for DHCP via an RJ45 cable
My is also plugged into the router and has been issued an address of 192.168.0.100. I have checked the IP allocation table on the router and it doesnt show any IP allocation to the USR2249.

I have gone on the website of USR (its really rubbish for any support!!!) and it tells you to reset the USR2249 back to default settings which I have now done countless times. I brought how another USR router from work and it didnt see this one either....

I have the US Robotics untilty but it doesnet see the Mac address from the wireless adaptor..

Mac address of the Wireless AD is 00c049e27467

my question is this - how do i check to see if it is a faulty device or working? How do i discover it's IP address? Can I connect my PC to the Wireless adaptor using RJ45 or a cross over cable (but i still wont know the IP address). should I just go a waste some more cash on another device!!!!

As a rule of thumb i have learned from experience is that you should buy a product once. Meaning buy a router like netgear or linksys for 20$ more than buying 2 not so name routers. When you connect the router straight to the pc you can access the router through its default ip. The specs usually gives that address to you. Something like 192.168.1.1 and if you can access it then it works. It may be a hardware issue.
