Installation for wireless g cards w/out CCD drives

I have an old panasonic toughbook running windows 98. It doesnt have a cd disc drive. I'm using a wireless b card and the signal quality is poor. I have Verizon Fios for my desktop immediately downstairs beneath this room. I have a netopia 3d reach and also a linksys wireless 2.4 ghz card with installation discs...but no way of downloading the software to this computer. no CD drive..only a 3 1/2 floppy drive. There is no ethernet connection on this unit either..can any one provide some instruction for getting a wireless g card to work in this unit...instead of being stuck using the wireless b card??

I'm just taking a stab at this because you didn't mention which model of toughbook you have but if it is old enough that it does not have an ethernet port, I'm betting it has a dialup modem.

Check out this link and find a provider in your area. It will be very slow but it should allow you to connect to the linksys website to download the driver.

or maybe you know somebody and can borrow their account.

I have a cd that wont run


if you are referring to an installation cd / driver cd then you will have to go to My Computer > your CD drive > and find the setup / autorun file, and double-click on it to make it manually start.

otherwise there could be a problem with the cd itself, or your drive. it would be rare that the OS would impede the operation of your CD drive, but even that is possible. if other CDs work, then try to launch the one that wouldnt work, manually, using the instrustionc above, and also, try that cd in another computer if you have one.

54Mbps 802.11g wireless LAN PCI Card problem


You need to connect to the manufacturer's web site and find the exact pci card model and download the software. You can download to a flash drive or CD and then run the program on the other computer BEFORE you plug in the hardware. Then install the pci card and follow the setup instructions.
Good Luck

I need help installing my 2wire wireless adapter card.


I used this one:

Introduction
============
This document describes the procedure to install driver for the 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter under Microsoft Windows, and to run a wireless configuration program to configure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to work with a 2Wire HomePortal or OfficePortal wireless gateway. These drivers work under Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP.

STEP 1 - Driver Installation
============================
1. Make sure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter has not been connected to your computer USB port.
2. Double-click on the file to run WinZip Self-Extractor. The driver installation files will be placed in your hard disk in the C:\TWWUSB_TEMP directory
3. Connect your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to an available USB port in your computer. Windows Found New Hardware Wizard will startup.
4. Select the option to search for driver in specific location. Specify C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP as the location of driver.
5. Follow on-screen instruction to finish driver installation.

STEP 2 - Wireless Configuration
===============================
1. Run the program WirelessCfg.exe in the directory C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP. You can do so by clicking on the Windows Start button and select Run. The Windows Start button is typically at the lower left corner of the screen. Type in C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP\WirelessCfg.exe to launch the program.
2. Follow on-screen instruction to configure your wireless setting. Enter the serial number and encryption key as they are printed on the bottom of your 2Wire wireless gateway.

Wireless G USB Adapter is not working on windows vistar


Windows 7 (Beta) and Windows Vista 64 Bit. Step 1. Do not allow the autostartup to run the installation application. You must right click on the CD ROM and select the "OPEN" option. Locate the driver on the install CD. Since my DVD ROM drive is my "D:" drive I located the driver at D:\USB_VISTA32364\BACKUP_2WIRE_VISTA_USB_Installer.exe . Before you click on this you want to right click on this and select Properties. In the properties tab click on the middle tab marked "Compatibility". Make sure you select the checkmark box to: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and use the pull down menu to select Windows XP SP2. This is how I was able to get my 2wire utility to work on Windows 7 (beta) 64 Bit.

Windows Wireless Network Status window should detect the router; it should broadcast the SSID belkin54g or something similar; you do not need the CD to set it up.

Proxim Orinoco 8482-WD PCI Card, Driver installation locks Win-XP


Try the other way around,first install the card then boot the system up. When Windows finds the card and asks for the driver, insert your driver cd and choose install driver manually and point windows to your cd drive to force the use of the correct driver. It may be that windows is trying initially to install the generic driver.
