Hello experts,

I hope that you can assist me with this problem.

I am using a PC with a TP-LINK 11b/g Wireless Adapter. The device is disabled, but when I enable it, the PC locks up and I have to restart. I have tried updating the driver from the TP-LINK website, but to no avail.

Anybody else had this issue, or know a solution????? ;)

It is possible that the hardware is faulty - you have to be able to verify that you have a working adapter.  Can you try it in another machine?
