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

I have a Proxim Orinoco 8482-WD PCI Card. Before installing the card into a PCI slot 1. Started windows and removed any drivers & software for the card. 2. Rebooted. 3. Installed orinoco software Version 410161 4. Shut down computer. 5. Installed card into PCI slot 6. Started computer. 7. Windows recognized the card and asked to install the drivers. 8. I told it to automatically do so. 9. Driver installation went ok until it got to NTPR11AG.SYS (Then the computer locked up) 10. I had to cold boot 11. Windows would not start (it hung up at the splash screen) 12. Had to go into safe mode and uninstall the software and drivers. 13. Then windows would boot. But Card would not work, because the drivers were not installed. Is it possible this card is gagging because of the on motherboard NIC ? Or am i missing something else?

    Seems plausable. I will give that a try. I'm getting to the point that If I can't get it working soon I'm just going to get a different card. Too bad cause I always wanted one of these.

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.

Hello, good afternoon. My problem is that i need the driver for Proxim ORiNOCO 11b Silver 802.11b (8425-WD), but i need the driver with support for WPA password. Regards, JOHN JAIRO BECERRA


It doesn't look like that model supports WPA according to this doc on the card models, and WPA.

Dear sir,

Welcome to once again Fixya support

According your problem it seems to be your try to install faulty Network card. So better is check with new good card.another possibility is some time pci slots fail to recognise a hardware, so try it with another pci slots of mother board.According to you onboard network card is dead, means motherboard fails to work when connect to a network,after successfull installation of network card also the possibility of motheboard not allow you to work with new network card ,same situation may arise,i am also managed same problems in several customer place while working as an computer hardware engineer.So try with new network card it may solve your problem


good luck

Orinoco Classic Gold PCMCIA Card Not Showin any Networks in Range


They may not be compatible with your WiFi card. That seems most likely. Check what type of WiFi you have - A, B, D, etc and then make sure your card is compatible - yours is 802.11b. WiFi have different frequencies and channels so it is not simply enough to plugin a card and have it work. If you need an expert, bring your computer to a BestBuy store (even if you did not buy it there)and ask them what is wrong.

Wi-fi problem


I went to the Proxim website (www.proxim.com) to see if I could find info on the card, but Proxim looks like they make you register before you can get any information.

You probably just need a Vista driver. Go to the Proxim site, register, and see if one is available.

Good luck.

INSERT PROXIM CARD-GETTING PCI DEVICE?


It may be that the driver being used ia a generic one that Windows updated if it's on automatic, and not the driver you got with the adapter. Start from beginning again, uninstal card and drivers if still there, but make sure Windows looks to your installation CD for the driver and not a Windows generic one. You may have to re-start your system, and make sure your router sees the card in it's ip address allocation.
