i've got a laptop (xpsp2) and a computer (xpsp1) connected to a wireless router, and have had no issues for a while, but it was only today when my computer decided to act funny. i had left it on and hadn't touched it for at least half an hour, then a message popped up at the bottom, claiming that i cannot use a high speed network adapter in a non-high speed USB port (or something along those lines).
as i said, this was entirely out of the blue, with no reasonable explanation as to why this happened, as no-one had touched the computer in over 30 minutes.
a while later the connection started to constantly disconnect, then re-connect, again and again, and even if it stayed connected, it was impossible to open web pages or do much else without "server cannot be found" slapping you around the face.
i tried a system restore, but now it has gotten to the point where the computer totally freezes if you plug any wireless adapter into it. Windows fails to open if the wireless adapters are still plugged into the USB ports also.
Can anyone offer a helping hand? and thanks for your time :cheesy:
