Question about MSI (CB54G2) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Wireless adapter cannot find enough free resources

I am using an MSI CB54G2 cardbus wireless adapter on my laptop which runs windows XP. The laptop is quite old and had started becoming very slow and crashing about 20mins after starting up. I changed my startup settings and deleted a load of programmes I don't need which has helped the speed and stopped the crashing, however my wireless adapter is now not working. I reinstalled the drivers but I still get the same error message which is:

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

There are no devices listing as clashing under the resources tab and I have tried all the troubleshooting tips suggested but but with no sucess. Can anyone help?

I have a ibm 10/100 etherjet cardbus adapter and am trying to get it up and working on my laptop that is running windows 7. Previously when i was running windows xp it work perfect but since i installed...


Unfortunately, this adapter is 10 years old and Microsoft and IBM have decided that you've used this network adapter for quite long enough and you need to buy a new one.
Microsoft and IBM have not and probably won't provide drivers for Windows 7 for this adapter. I looked at the Lenovo/IBM web site, and the last version of Windows that was supported by IBM was Windows XP. There are no drivers listed for Vista, so I'm very certain that there will be no drivers for Windows 7.
This is what is known as "planned obsolescence"

My dear! alway remember that when you use any new hardware you should install driver first and then plug it with CPU. So it could be possible that when you install driver first then card will pick and work properly.
Thank You

You should be able to use any usb wireless network adapter, or any cardbus type II wireless adapter. BUT if you are running windows 98 or ME or an older version than xp... before you purchase one, go to the manufacturer site and be sure that there are drivers for the version of windows that you are running. Here is what to look for and a link to some items that may work.

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

Doesn't install properly on Thinkpad 760XL running WIN98 SE


Make sure you have all the drivers handy.
Uninstall the sound
Uninstall the modem
Uninstall the nic drivers as well as the wirelss nic drivers.
Uninstall all others that have conflicts.
Remove the adapters out of the pcmcia slots. (Ethernet, etc
Shut down and restart the system.
The system should detect all hardware again.
Now if this laptop has an onboard nic and modem disabled them
Shut down and restart system.
Check control panel to make sure they are diabled.
Now istall the combo card nic/modem.
If this does not work you should try diabling them in the bios.
As for the wireless nic. You normally would have to install the software prior to inserting the adapter.

Let me know what happens
Hope this helps you
