Would really appreciate some help here as I am getting the run-around from ISP, Microsoft and Compaq.
I have a Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium Compaq Presario that I have put downstairs and am trying to connect to the internet via a Netcomm NP545 USB stick. The USB stick worked fine on my old computer which ran XP but it won't work on the Vista model.
The USB stick is compatible with my version of Vista, the problem is that when I go to the network settings and it shows my wireless connection, it is disabled. If I click enable it goes on to say enabling...enabled but it remains disabled.
The USB stick works on my other two computers one running XP, the other running Windows 7. And am at a total loss as to what could be preventing it from working.
Anyone have any ideas?
When I try to set up the wireless connection and it doesn't find one, the diagnosis is
"RT73 USB wireless Lan card is experiencing driver or hardware issues"
