Can anyone recommend a Windows XP compatible USB wireless adapter that doesn't require a CD software load. MY CD drive is broke and obviously I can't download a driver prior to having wireless internet access.
Your best bet is to download the driver from another machine and use the copy to install on your machine.
XP is an extremely old operating system (over ten years old). It came out back when computers had 256MB of ram and harddrives were 7GB. The drivers that came with it are over ten years old, back when Wireless G didn't even exist.
