Question about Computers & Internet
I got a Roper FreeLan 802.11g wireless PCI card and can't get it to work in my brand new Compaq Presario desktop. Please help!
You need to plug it into your computer and run the drivers on the disk that probably came with it. A reboot may be necessary, but do one anyway. Then if you go into control panel and look for your network settings it should come up as a wireless network connection. You will have to configure it from there. As each manufacturer is different, you will have to read the book I'm afraid. I have only been able to find Italian instructions, I guess you will see an indicator in your system tray (bottom right of screen) and if you hover over it you will see it is called the same as your card. You can click or right on it, and you get a configuration tool up and it will allow you to do a scan of the airwaves. If your router is on it should detect it. You then have to right click the network device and choose properties and configure the SSID and the secret key of your wireless router and match all the other settings on it so that they are both talking the same "language"
