This thread click here has a better title.
Please don't post twice as it causes confusion.

Sorry it's still an unhelpful title.
Uninstall and re-install or alternatively uninstall and just connect and let Windows sort out the drivers.

Some thoughts to start you off in diagnosing your problem....

Does the usb stick show up in Device Manager when it is plugged in?

Does it have any yellow triangles in Device Manager?

Have you entered the correct WEP/WAP code?

Have you tried it in your family pc?

Have you tried a different stick in your computer?

it shows up in device manager as a "Belkin wireless g + usb network adapter" however its in a is shown outside of the network adapter devices and shown in other devices, so the pc knows its in there just the drivers dont work i guess, and i have used it in my family computer with the drivers and it worked fine ! i also just installed the older adapter i had nad its in device manager as a network adapter but it wont find any wireless networks ? im confuzzed

Check settings in the USB stick software

how ?

Your usb adapter should not show up in Other Devices, it should be in Network Adapters. I suggest that you right click it and select uninstall, then either re-boot and let Windows find it or go to the top of the Device Manager and choose Scan for Hardware Changes. Let's get it correctly recognised in Windows first before changing any other settings.

Uninstall SP2 and see if it works again (you could always reinstall again later)

You should have got a Driver Disc with the Stick, when you load it, it also loads software and put an icon in system tray near clock, right click this to change settings
