that the adapter came with a software CD, and that you have installed the driver that was on it?

The symptom you describe leads me to think that this problem is driver-related. I could be wrong, but I suggest that you remove the adapter in Control panel/system/hardware/devce manager.

Disconnect the adapter and reboot the computer. Now install the software that came with the adapter, and then plug it in.

I would tend to agree with FE. I have a wireless card that came with a CD. On the CD cover, the words "Insert this disc FIRST".

If I let XP detect the card before putting the CD in then it doesn't install it correctly.
