What happens if you start it up, then put the USB wireless connector in?

Sorry, who is who?

If it works properly if you put the USB connector in afterwards, why not just do that?

Or am I missing something?

See if reloading the drivers makes any difference. They may have come on a CD.

Otherwise, I'm afraid that it's just one of those things.
