Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

Sorry for the frequent posts, but I finally got things working - apparently ZoneAlarm firewall was the culprit. I uninstalled that, got the Wireless connections running without a problem, then reinstalled ZoneAlarm and now everything is hunky-dory.

Thank you very much everyone for getting me to this point! Very much appreciate it.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Sorry, havn't been on lately - yes, from your description it looks driver related. Suggest you get onto the dongle manufacurer's website for the correct driver for the OS you are using on the machine that doesn't work. Make sure you fully uninstall the old one then install the new and see if that gets the OS to recognise it - if that doesn't fix it suggest you get onto their tech support.

Let me know if this helps.
