This wireless adaptor takes longer and longer to connect to internet if it connects at all. Do these go bad? Should I get a new one? XP connects to Verizon router I guess but will not then connect to internet. Unsure just what the problem is but have tried all I know. Adapter blinks, it is connected to hi-speed USB 2, but keeps trying and re-trying to connect without success. Don't know if fault is verizon or the adapter malfunctioning. Is this common? It is a D-Link 130 and did not cost much. Could it be worn out? Expect this perhaps at times of heavy demand but not late at night. Used to be connected in less than a minute whenever. Then longer and longer and tonight half hour and not at all.
