    Please someone help me...

    I have a crap dell. I have a slingbox. I have a Wireless G Game Adapter.

    In Linksys' easy instructions it says:
    1 Connect Ethernet to adapter
    2 Connect ethernet to computer
    3 Plug power adapter in
    4 Insert CD and Setup Wizard will begin
    5... = Haven't got that far.

    I haven't got that far because when Setup Wizard begins I hit setup which then searches for Game Adapter is says.

    BUT NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER finds it... and Linksys is no help. I can't find it on there PDF they packed on the CD or their Website.... I dont know what to do...

    Oh and the Dell already has a wireless card connected to it. If I connect the Game Adapter to the dell suddenly internet stops working... If I disable it then I can get on websites like linksys and look for help... Please some one help...

    I know nothing what so ever about wireless networks and this is really crappy... I thought this was gonna be easy...

    It sounds like the game adapter is faulty or something. I hope linksys' support is ok!!
