I've Had Such Dongles Die...

In your case, despite there being no clear why it would happen, you might try to swap in a new one..

There's also a chance that an updated motherboard/chipset driver could repair the USB port problem.. Are other devices having issues with the USB ports? Have you checked the wireless adapter's website to see if there are NEW drivers for the device.?

Hope this helps.

The owner finally admitted they had dropped it. We tried another and it works.
