Remove the case cover from your desktop computer. Remove a cover strip from a PCI expansion slot. Insert the Dynex network card into this PCI slot and secure it with a screw. Replace the cover on the desktop computer. Boot up the computer and when Windows has booted up then insert the Dynex installation CD into the CD drive then install the LAN driver. Connect a LAN cable from the Dynex LAN card to your modem or router etc.
Things You'll Need
Router compatible with modem
Internal or external wireless network adapter
Prepare the Network
Purchase and setup a wireless broadband router by interfacing it with your wired computer. Choose a router that is compatible with your broadband modem and that supports the wireless network type you desire.
Enable WPA or WPA-2 security, and change your router's default password. Give your SSID or wireless network a memorable name.
Connect your modem to the WAN (wide area network) port on your router.
Install an Internal Card
Purchase a wireless network card that is compatible with the router you purchased and with your computer. For example, if you bought a 802.11 b/g router, do not purchase an 802.11 n adapter.
Shut down your computer. Remove all cables and peripheral devices.
Remove the left side panel while facing the front of the case. You may need to remove screws or to manipulate latches and notches. Consult your case or computer manufacturer's documentation if you are unsure of how to remove the panel.
Clip the metal part of the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and ******** the bracelet.
Locate an available PCI or PCI-Express slot. Unscrew the screw that secures the slot cover that corresponds with the slot, then remove the slot cover.
Line up the wireless adapter's pins with the slot. Insert the card until it clicks into place. Do not force the card into the slot, or you may damage the card's connectors. If you feel resistance, remove the card, line up the card with the slot again, and reinsert.
Secure the card with the slot cover screw. Reattach the side panel, and replace any screws you removed earlier.
Reinsert all cables, and plug in all peripherals. Boot the computer.
Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions.
Install an External Card
Boot up your computer.
Insert your external wireless adapter into the appropriate slot. For example, if you purchased a USB slot, insert it into a USB port.
Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions
Double-click the network icon in the task bar.
Highlight your wireless network. Windows will display the name you entered when setting up your router
Click the "Connect" button.
Enter and verify the security key you created when setting up the router. Click on "Connect."
If you have further query then try to let me know.

If you think the problem is the USB slot, you better make sure of that. Plug the printer to a different USB port. If you have the same problem, you can just buy a USB Card. This USB card will be plugged in to the PCI slot of motherboard of your computer for you to have extra USB port.
Have you tried moving the card to a different slot? The motherboard BIOS and/or the operating system may be trying to assign an interrupt that cannot be shared--especially if you have the card installed in the slot next to the video card (or shared with the onboard video).
You got the names wrong, there is no PCI version of the FX5200, therefore it is AGP or PCI Express only.(doubt the later) Now asuming you havent forced the card into the wrong slot, take the modem out. Check in the BIOS at bootup if the machine has an onboard graphics card, disable that or set to boot the AGP or PCIXpress. Then manual IRQ settings. Set those to AUTO.
There is a rule to PCI cards (really doubt yours is) to ALWAYS put a graphics card into the 1st PCI port on the board, most boards have labels, manual has it for sure. It will aslo say if and which pci port shares its IRQ (interrupt request) with what device on the mainboard - that conflict causes some strange things to happen later in windows...
Then boot to safe mode. If it boots, check device manager for duplicate devices. delete every duplicate and reboot.
Most likely it is just windows going nutz, unless there was some PCI / AGP, force insertion magic or you forgot to unplugg the power cord and the mainboard was live and had suffered some damage while changing the cards...
More details would help, hope this will be of any use m8. Good luck!
I think maybe better uninstalling driver, but leave card in and boot system and let windows find the card(hardware) first instead of wot sounds like windows looking for driver and freezing in the boot up process as it will look for a connection to internet for an update or driver.
Normally any usb periferals should be connected after driver installation, but any pci or agp cards inserted first, then driver.
