Re: USB 2.0 cardbus pc card adapter N2PUCB

I bought this card to use with a dell 7500 laptop. The laptop does not have a usb 2 connection. I have tried various versions of linux, but my computer locks up whenever a device is connected to this card. It almost looks like the card has a power adapter port between the 2 usb connectors, however no power adapter was provided at the time of purchase from circuit city. Any ideas?

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.

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

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.

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.
