Re: network adapter

Hi, Prism3 refers to wireless local area networking (WLAN) solution that provides an IEEE 802.11b-based WLAN platform. Some of the known firms that produce the chipsets or the wifi card are Conexant, Airvast, Shuttle, Z-Com and ZyXEL among others. Perhaps the best approach would be to determine the laptop brand/model itself and from thereon proceed to the laptop's manufacturer website and download appropriate drivers. Hope this be of some help/idea. Of course this will not hold true if the wifi card is external. Good luck and kind regards.

Have you installed tnhe drivers for your Network Adapter? Without the drivers the adapter is, as far as the computer knows, not there. Did you get a disk with your computer and/or adapter? If so install the drivers and problem should be solved.

Based on your post, you currently have a working Netgear WiFi Card installed in your laptop. What you want to do is remove it from the laptop and install the said card to your desktop.

For your desktop to be able to accept the NetGear WFi card which is a PCMCIA Cardbus device, you need to install either:
1. a USB Adapter for PCMCIA as shown here; or
2. a CardBus/PCMCIA to PCI Adapter Card available here.

Either one will work. Of course you need to install the necessary drivers for the NetGear MA701NA in your desktop which is available from the CD installer that came with the NetGear or online here.

Considering the cost of the USB adapter or the PCMCIA to PCI card, you may want consider buying a PCI WiFi card or USB WiFi dongle.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
