i wasn't sure whether i was to put this in the periferals section or this one

i have a netgear wireless adaptor wg121 which works absolutely fine, until i plug in my creative zen neeon.
the adaptor stops working and it can't see any wireless routers. (you know how there are two lights? the transmit light goes out, and the connection to the router is lost)

the neeon works fine

my os is xp professional, the adaptor and the neeon both connect through usb 2.0

any help is greatly appreciated

Hello foontas and welcome to G2G, :tazz:

This question falls into both forums actually, but ill help as best I can for the networking adapter part of it.
Please answer these Basic questions first though, so we can get started:


1) What Operating System are you using? (Please include any Updates or Service Patches)

2) What is the Model and Manufacturer of the Network Card or USB Adapter you are using to connect with?

3) What is the Model number of the Digital Audio Player your connecting?

4) Are Both devices connected to the same USB card. (meaning right next to each other)

5) What IRQ's are assigned to each device? (see IRQ Location instructions Below)



IRQ Locations:

1. Click on Start
2. RIGHT Click on My Computer
3. Select Properties
4. Click on the Hardware Tab
5. Click the Device Manager Button
6. Scroll Down to Network Adapters and expand the selection by clicking the + sign
7. Select your wg121 wireless adapter then RIGHT Click on it
8. Select properties
9. Click on the Resources Tab
10. In the list is the entry IRQ - what is the number beside it? <reply 1>
11. Under the "conflicting Device List" what does it say? <reply 2>
12. now close out this device window
13. Still in the device manager screen now locate your Audio device (Just click the plus signs to expand the categories)
14. After you find the device Right click on it
15. Select properties
16. Click on the Resources Tab
17. In the list is the entry IRQ - what is the number beside it? <reply 3>
18. Under the "conflicting Device List" what does it say? <reply 4>
19. Now close out this device window
20. Close out the Device Manager

the adaptor is connected to the motherboard and the mp3 player was connected to the other card, as i posted this new topic, i had changed it so that both are connected to the motherboard, i thought it might makea difference, and i think it has, i'm trying it out as i type this, and so far so good.

sorry if i wasted your time.

thankyou
