Driver xp


That card should have the drivers on the card.

Turn off the computer, insert the card into an available PCM/CIA or CardBus slot, turn on the computer. After booting up, XP should detect the card, find the drivers on the card and install them itself.

Does this devise pick up internet on laptop or desk top either one


Hi cfisherman8

This is a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter Card.

It slots into the large PCMCIA Port that almost all larger laptops and notebooks have.

This device can also work in a Desktop computer but requires a PCMCIA Cardbus Adapter to be installed in the Desktop Computer for it to slot into. There are different types of Desktop PCMCIA Cardbus Adapter. Some types internally connect a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter Cardbus to an empty Motherboard PCI Slot and others externally connect a PCMCIA Cardbus to the computer via its USB or Serial Ports. See here for examples:

http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Port-CardBus-PCMCIA-Adapter/dp/B000BMMN7K/ref=sr_1_21?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316320335&sr=1-21

http://www.amazon.com/Startech-Cardbus-Adapter-Transfer-115-2kbps/dp/B004WGR6YG/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1316320098&sr=8-12

http://www.amazon.com/Quatech-PCD-X-U142--CardBus-adapter/dp/B001BEF3YC/ref=sr_1_28?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316321566&sr=1-28

Other alternative internal wireless networking devices for Desktop computers include a PCI Wireless Network Card. See example here:

http://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Wireless-802-11n-Network-Adapter/dp/B002DYIZ2Q/ref=sr_1_14?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316320278&sr=1-14


Once installed, it is able to send and receive data wirelessly between the computer and any Wireless Router/Modem to which the computer is configured to connect.

This device is most easily used with a Laptop. An easier solution for a Desktop PC would be a USB Wireless Adapter.

I hope this helps.

Linksys WPC54GS wireless adapter installation issue


There's a possibility that the adapter is defective. However, you may still try the following:

1. Make sure to uninstall the software if you still have it installed. Remove it from the Programs list or under Add/Remove Programs.
2. Check Device Manager and make sure adapter is not under Network Adapters nor Other Devices. It might be called Network Controller if driver is not installed correctly.
3. Unplug card, shutdown computer and when PC is powered off, plug card back and restart computer.You may insert the CD on this process, but do not run/continue the CD setup wizard.
4. When computer is back on, you should get a Found New Hardware bubble message or wizard.

Just finish the wizard and tell me how it went. Goodluck!

It sounds like you may have a band PCMCIA slot. Have you attempted to use any other expansion cards in it to test this theory?
