Ruthless Belkin

I accidently had the Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter plugged in before I installed the software on a customer’s computer. I tried to fix it (a lot of times) by uninstalling, disabling, reinstalling. It was all in vain. After waiting 10 minutes on hold for tech support, I basically have to clean install Windows. Man, no mercy! I spent over an hour on it, too!

On the box, they should clearly say that if you mess up, you’ll have to format everything: in big, bold letters. Ugh! Idiot!

  1. Damn dude, that’s BRUTAL! Given that a wireless adapter would destroy my software system that way, I’d return it and get a linksys wireless G antenna. The coverage is pretty swank for the price.
