Wireless not able to see netword


I have a laptop and desktop the laptop is using CFP with no problem. My desktop after installing CFP does not see the network. I have done an ipconfig /renew and release several time and I still can’t force it. It is currently using ZA free and that has no problem. The desktop is using a Belkin USB wireless adapter. I have not tried connecting it to the router with a CAT 5 because of the distance. Does anyone know how I can force this USB to connect using CFP?

Thanks for any help.
