i installed a belkin usb wireless adapter on a guys pc. it worked when i was there. it stopped working when i left.

it seemed to help when i told wireless zero to take over teh wireless config, but then i noticed belkin was still there in the system tray, and againh it stopped working altho connected

finally since there was no belkin stuff in msconfig / startup, i had to go into services.msc to disable the wlanservice from belkin.

now there's no belking stuff in the system tray, and wireless zero is handling it no problem, no connection probs.

i tried initially to uninstall the belkin util, but that also uninlled the driver!! wtf!

does the culprit sound like a crappy belkin software?

In my experience, Belkin equipment is near the bottom of the barrel.  I had numerous problems with their wireless routers and eventually told people it was worth the extra dough to buy Linksys.
