No wireless connection tab.

By skankypooh ·
So here I am with a wireless linksys AP/router WRT54G and 1 wireless usb network adapter WUSB54G. The AP/router is connected to a adsl broadband router/modem (NEC NTA-3110). The first computer is connected wired to the linksys AP/router and is working fine.. I set up the stuff at
Now I'm trying to set up the wireless USB adapter to connect my 2nd computer to the internet and to the network. So I plug it into the USB port and it tells me to install the drivers like the installation guide said, then somehow after it finished installing drivers, I don't see any wireless connection tray icon to search for networks nor do I see "wireless connection" under my network connections tab. Any idea what's going on?
I've already tried disabling Linksys' own WLAN monitor software and also restarted the Wireless Zero Configuration service under services with no luck. If anyone has a clue as to why it doesnt show a wireless connection, please let me know.
Oh, I also checked device manager and it shows the USB adapter to be working and I have disabled the old NIC in that computer.

Thanks in advance!

Have you restarted the computer?

If not try it most of the time the your available wireless networks will not show until you restart the computer. If you have done that. Make sure that the router has broadcasting enabled if not it won't send a signal to your adapter. If that doesn't test the usb adapter by placing it on the other computer to see if you get the same problem if so you have a defective adapter you may have a defective adapter or router.
