Question about Milan Technologies ShAir Access MIL-W1897L (784964928333) Wireless Adapter
I am having trouble installing the device on a Windows 98 laptop. (i know it's very old but i need this to work) -After inserting the card into the PCMCIA slot, nothing happens. -I go to the network connections and add a new adapter. -Clicked on "Have disk..." and loaded the driver from the manufacturer. -Driver installation went smoothly so I restarted the machine. -After the reboot, no wireless adapter is detected. -When I checked the Device Manager, I see a yellow mark on the device with a question mark. Upon click properties, it says, "The NDIS.VXD, NTKERN.VXD device loader(s) for the device cound not load the device driver. (Code 2.) To fix this, click Update Driver to update the device driver." -I followed other suggestions like copying the two VXD files into the system folder but to no avail. Please help. Thanks.
Not much of a solution, but keep uninstalling and re installing the driver cos win98 not very good for driver issues, i remember having to fiddle around with it with win98se also. Perhaps the device is recognised but not being installed because of a faulty slot or mobo fault. But personally I wouldn't go on-line with win98, would advise upgrading to xp sp2, much better with security and easier to sort out driver issues. Trying to forget Win98/SE, not very pleasant!
