Wireless USB Adapter

The Wireless USB Adapter is a wireless networking device that is connected to a 
USB port on your computer using a USB cable. Using the Wireless USB Adapter, 
you can communicate with one or more computers that are equipped with wireless 
adapters. Where a standard Ethernet card requires a cable connection to a hub or 
a patch panel, wireless networking provides the same connectivity without the 
wires. Expanding or redesigning your network is easy, and unlike cabled Ethernet, 
the Wireless USB Adapter allows users to roam throughout the network while 
remaining connected to the LAN.

Installation

Follow these steps to install the Wireless USB Adapter:

Step 1 - Install the Wireless USB Adapter.

Step 2 - Add the adapter to your computer and install the drivers.

Step 3 - Reboot your computer so Windows recognizes the adapter.

The following sections give you detailed instructions for completing each step.
