Initially my computer said it had low virtual memory, so I took out the wireless card (which helped me fix the memory prblm, but now when I put the card back in, the internet does not work). Please help! Thanks

Try un-installing the wireless adapter, and then reinstall it back. If this does not work, check out the configuration in both the router and in the computer. You will have to connect the computer directly to the router to check out the router's configuration.
It is also possible that the wireless adapter has failed. The only way to verify that is to try another one.

If your wirless adapter freezes your system it is definitely a driver incompatibillity, thus download the latest version of the driver for your spesific os and it should work properly.
Please rate this.
Make sure that you insert the card in before booting up the computer. When Windows 2000 was created PCMCIA cards weren't hot swappable. If that doesn't do the trick, check linksys.com for updated Windows 2000 dirvers.
You can still update to Windows XP as well. Some computer stores still carry it. Wireless networking is managed much better under that operating system.
If you're having installing the wireless card, try first to run the setup CD and follow the wizard in installing the wireless card and if it didn;t finish the installation , restart the computer and make sure the wireless card is connected to the computer and let the computer detect it and then a Found new Hardware wizard will come up just follow it , but if still fail better call Linksys tech support and let one of their tech walk you through with the process also to check if the wireless adapter is bad, they are open 24/7 this is the number 800-3267114....
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!
Those install programs that Linksys uses are terrible. This happens all the time.
You probably can't use the linksys program to install the software on a Windows 2000 machine you should be able to install just the driver you need. I have never used wireless networking on a Win 2000 computer before. Win XP has sotware already built into the operating systems to deal with wireless networking.
Uninstall all Linksys wireless networking software. Restart you computer with the wirless network card install and let Windows search for the correct drivers on the CD.
Go to device manager. Double click network adapters. The linksys wireless notebook adapter should appear under NETWORK ADAPTERS. If it is there, right click the Linksys Wireless Notebook adapter then click properties, it should show THE DEVICE IS WORKING PROPERLY. If not you need to uninstall and reinstall the device.
