Today I made a little pit-stop by Fry's and picked up a TEW-423PI G wireless adapter for my desktop (I know it's not a good one, but it was 14 bucks and I'm broke). Followed the instructions: install drivers
, install device etc. I'm getting nothing. Simply shows an "x" over the wireless connection symbol. When I try to run the diagnostic it reads "There might be a problem with the driver
for the Wireless Network Connection 3 adapter." Device Manager is showing that both the driver and the device are working properly, but I'm not getting any sort of connection out of it.
I read through the forums, downloaded the windows 7 drivers, tried to use the older drivers etc. but to no avail, nothing's working. Any tips?
EDIT: The troubleshooter says "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter."
