Hi, I am having a problem getting Cisco Connect
on an older computer (~2000) running WinXP SP3.
It has 2 USB ports in one of which is inserted
a Linksys AE1200 Wireless-N USB adapter. The
driver has installed OK (I did that separately)
and the hardware shows up in the Device Manager
together with the driver.
However if I try to install the configuration software
for the Linksys USB adapter the computer crashes,
sometimes with the loss of OS files. This occurs
no matter whether I try and install from the CD or
from the hard disk (using the 30 Mb download).
Is there some way round this? If I can't solve
it then I can't connect to the internet via the
remote wireless router.

Yes, I did try a manual install. The driver installs OK. The problem is with
the software. Here I copied the software to the hard disk and tried to
install it from there. However the computer either crashed or froze,
and I lost files on reboot.
There is no problem installing the wireless USB on a more recent computer.
I think the technology on my old machine (~2000) is just not up to the task
even though it has functioning USB ports. I guess in those days nobody was
thinking about wireless USB sticks.
It's a pity though. If anybody has struggled with similar problems and solved them
please let me know!
