Cannot log onto Windows unless I unplug my Wireless Adapter

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?V29vbGx5Y2h1bQ==?=, Nov 25, 2005.

  1. I cannot log onto Windows XP (SP2) unless I unplug my Thomson SpeedTouch 121g
    Wireless 802.11g USB Adapter. I just get a blank blue screen from which I can
    only recover by restarting my nearly new Dell Dimension 5150C.
    However, if I unplug the adapter I can log onto Windows with no problems at
    all and the wireless network works just fine.
    Although AOL support both my Router and Adapter products, they have told me
    that they don't have the expertise on Windows and wireless adapters to help!
    I would really apreciate any help

  2. Hi

    I can't you resolve your problems with your speedtouch but maybe I help you
    to get your desktop back without doing a re-start.

    Basically when you get your blank screen do CTRL-ALT-DE upon which you
    should see windows task manager appear Then you need to click on 'file'
    and then run 'new task (run)' and type in 'explorer' and click OK.
    Hopefully you should now have your desktop back.

    Have you tried installing the most recent drivers for your SpeedTouch
    adapter? You can download the latest (R3.0.1 at the time of writing) driver
    here:

    http://www.speedtouch.com/support.htm

    I would also visit:

    http://www.windowsupdate.com

    And ensure your system is fully patched.
