Re: computer freezes up

Your computer may not be able to handle the 2.0 USB cardbus.
Your PC maybe 1.1 USB. If this is the case you might want to add an additional PCI card with 2.0 USB drives. This way you are up to date with the 2.0 cardbus. Resolve this issue and you should be fixed from the PC freezing.

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:

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

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.

I installed the driver and the utilities program that comes with the driver still thniks that i have no card plugged in

Due to the fact that you have attempted to install the drivers for the wireless adapter, the device manager might be holding multiple copies of the drivers which might be preventing the drivers from being loaded properly. In order to address the problem, please do the following:

Step 1 If the computer has a built-in ethernet adapter, please make sure that you disable it.

Step 2 Boot into safe mode (press F8 during bootup). Once in safe mode, access the device manager (right-click my computer, left-click properties, left-click on the hardware tab, left-click on device manager). Expand the network adapters category and determine if there are multiple copies of the driver. If so, please uninstall them one by one until they are removed completely.

Step 3 Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove programs, and uninstall the D_Link configuration utility.

Step 4 At this point, restart the laptop and eject the wireless card. If you have a PCI adapter, do not reboot or remove the adapter.

Step 5 Make sure that there are no background utilities running such as antivirus, crash guard, or firewall. If so, please disable them.

Step 6 Run the installation CD in order to install the drivers for the wireless adapter.

Step 7 If you have a laptop, shutdown the computer and install the adapter. Turn on computer and Windows should install the drivers.

If you have a PCI adapter, reboot the computer and Windows should install the drivers.

Installing pc card: 32 bit cardbus WG511

If your laptop is running on XP, sometimes WINDOWS installs the drivers for the wireless card automatically. If WINDOWS do not install the drivers, you need to load or install the drivers of your wireless adapter. You can use the disc that came with the wireless adapter or downloiad the drivers from the website of your wireless adapter

Wireless network setup


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.

Dwl-g650 wirless card

you have the driver instaled for the card, but is the cardbus controller installed, go to device manager and look at pcmcia line and see if controller is there, or whether there is an exclamation mark on other unknown devices. You will need to go to the compaq site and identify the driver for the pcmcia controller
