  1. Okay Here is my issue i recently built a new computer and installed Windows Xp/Sp2 on it because my old windows wouldnt work on it becuase it was out of date or somthing. The issue im dealing with for about a week is that i cant get wireless internet connection on it. When i try to install the driver it goes it perfectly fine but it doesnt read the hardware it self. The Wireless adpater im useing is a Linksys Wireless G Usb adpater ( Model number wusb54g). And i know for a fact that the wireless adpater isnt broken or anything because i have tested it with 2 different computers and it works fine. Im tryin to figure the reason why my new computer that i had built doesnt want to read it and gives me the message " one or more of your usb devices has malfunctioned......" I have reformated my computer to many times to remember... Uninstalled Usb Ports and then reinstalling them..... Unplug power supply and leaveing it off overnight......
