AE2500 installation Problem

I have a router attached to my Dell desktop running Windows 7 and am trying to install the AE2500.


Instead of using the router, I want the AE-2500 to access my HotSpot wifi on my cell  phone.


I go through the AE2500 installation and Device Manager shows it is installed properly. However, I do not see the adapter in my list of available wireless connections and I'm unabley to disconnect my router connection. I keep clicking disconnect but it never does.


Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling a few times. 


Any ideas?

Re: AE2500 installation Problem

Are you using the AE2500 on the desktop? And the same desktop is still wired to the router? Is the answer is yes, to best test the connection, turn off your router (if it is wireless) and see if the adapter can detect your Hotspot wifi on the phone. Or you can also go to Network and Sharing center and disable local area connection to futher test it.
