are you getting any errors? Are you using the driver disc that came with it? More info would really help.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Perhaps a misdiagnosis?

1394 is firewire and not a usb wireless adapter. You are looking at the wrong interface.

Have tried using the buffalo disc and also downloaded the
most recent driver from their website:
Once I load the driver cd I get the message, "the driver is
being copies", then "please attach the product" (adapter)
When I plug the adapter into the usb port the computer
opens its hardware wizard and proceeds to search for the
hardware (little magnifing glass), then;
"there has been a problem installing the driver, an error
occurred during the installation of the device", "the system
cannot find the file specified"
The buf installer cd confirms that the installation was
unsuccessful-try again...
I suspect the firewire thing is unrelated, but I noticed there
was a yellow exclamation when I checked the device
manager and the computer sometimes attempts to install it.
I did a reinstall/repair OS (the one where your data is not
destroyed) a couple of weeks ago after detecting a problem
with the computer. This led me to remove one 512 ram card
as this was causing the problem. Everything else now works
fine apart from the wireless connection.

hi

the 1394 yellow exclamation mark means you need to find a driver for the motherboard device .
check your chip set drivers for that mobo.

example i have on this mobo under network connections
5 connections 4 ethernet two manufacturer names requiring 2 separate drivers and a 1394 net adapter connection requiring its own driver,
see base pic of this link

if you aren't using firewire there is no reason to update the driver. I disable the interface myself so it doesn't show.

Are your usb ports enabled in the bios and working?

What you describe sounds like either the usb ports aren't working or the wireless dongle isn't which is why the software isn't loading.
