Re: System Freeze after WLI-CB-G54s is inserted

Restart your Compaq Evo N1020v laptop without the card inserted. Go into the BIOS (by hitting F10), change the UMA Frame Buffer Size from 32MB to 64MB (located in the Advanced menu), reboot and install the card drivers and insert thecard. This should fix the problem.

I have a 54g MaxPerformance 802.11g adapter which came with my compaq presario. My wireless network worked with WEP but won't with this computer using WPA2. I think I need to update the driver. Which one...

I do not believe that updating the driver for your network card will solve the problem, although you should always install the newest one for best operation. You can go to Compaq's support page here and see if there is an update available for your model.

If WEP worked for you and WPA doesn't, then it is an encryption problem. Encryption happens on a different layer than the driver, which simply makes your Operating System work with your hardware.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Problems with WLi N-PCI-G300

Is it possible to install or re-install the latest service packs for XP? Or one thing that may work is can you restore Win XP to an earlier state before this happened(be sure to save all data), then install service packs at that point? Also, is your BIOS on the computer at its latest version?
