Wireless adaptor won't connect

July 10, 2009 at 10:05:40
Specs: N/A
Hey,

I was wondering if someone could help please. I have a
normal belkin USB adaptor to connect to a wireless
network. For some reason this is not working, I have
recently had numerous viruses and a other problems on
my computer a generic host win32 service error and a
spools.exe error. I was just wondering is there any
chance this could have effected my conection for this
computer as my PS3 and iPhone all connect to the
network with no trouble it is just the computer. While I
had them problems I set up an older computer with the
wireless adapter and had no problems.

Can somebody please give me some advice on how to
sort this problem. I have tried installing the belkin
drivers...etc again but it still does not work. And if anyone
has any info on the generic host problem it would be
greatfulfor advice.

Thanks.

Ash

You have not even said what operating system you are using.

Nor have you said what if any error message you get when you try to connect using the wireless adaptor.
"this is not working" is not an adequate description of a problem.

"I have
recently had numerous viruses and a other problems on
my computer a generic host win32 service error and a
spools.exe error"

Well have you addressed these issues? Has your system been cleaned up? What kind of system is it? A brand-name laptop or desktop? or a custom-built?

Also...can your computer connect to the Internet using an Ethernet cable?

Try that, if you have not.

Knowing that will really help narrow what the problem may be.

I beleive that I did say I "had" these errors. If
I had still got them I would have said I have.
I use windows xp service pack 2.

And the whole idea of having a wireless
network is not to have wires so an Ethernet
cable is not a great idea. Plus the fact that
the Internet source is a good 20m away. So
would cause a bit of trouble in the house.

"And if anyone

This indicates that you have not resolved all the problems associated with the previous virus/trojan issues.

Sometimes after a virus or other nasty has been removed, other system files that were damaged remain, or were removed in the cleanup process. In these circumstances I would recommend a repair install of the operating system.

Back up any important files/data before undertaking this process.

You still did not answer my questions about what kind of system you have and nor have you tried Kev's suggestion. Even if it is only a temporary arrangement to help sort out the problem, try connecting by cable.
