Hello,
I recently got a new computer and have tried to install a wireless adapter on this computer. My computer won't recognize it and I cant get past a certain step on the installation process. It wont allow me to click on what I am supposed to so that I can begin the nest step. It is a Linksys wireless adapter and I REALLY do not want to call them. This same adapter was installed in my previous computer, would this have anything to do with it?
Thanks!

I'm, not sure. I have a few technical questions involving the Xbox 360 wireless adapter. (I'm trying to use it as a PC wireless adapter... It's not working).

It might be that you need to uninstall your old adapter since this is a new one. Than install/reinstall the new adapter. Like I said I may just be wrong but you can try it. ^__^

you cannot use an xbox 360 wireless adapter on a computer! the computer lacks the necessary drivers to support the device... Allthough, you can use a computer adapter on an xbox...
