I have installed a wireless card called "wireless G notebook Adapter" to my pc. However, the bus slot does not recognize the adapter. This device worked properly before. It is even recognized by other pcs without installing the necessary software. Could you help me to solve this problem?

You can't install any cards internally as there isn't any room inside. If you want to add wireless capability you'll need a USB wireless adapter which you just plug in to one of the USB ports. This computer also has PCMCIA (card-bus) slots, but that's older technology. USB adapters are much easier to find.
I ran recently across the same problem and solved it by changing the PCI slot where the card was installed... it makes little sense to humans, but apparently make a world of difference to the PC hardware ;)
Assuming you had installed unsuccessfully both Card and Driver you have them (like I did) both on your PC. In such ase, the solution for me was as follows:
1) Turn Off PC
2) Remove the card from the current PCI slot
3) Turn PC back On and remove driver
4) Turn Off PC, remove power cord and wait a minute or two
5) Do not install card yet
6) Turn PC back On and install the driver
7) Turn Off PC remove power cord
8) Install the Wireless card in a different PCI slot THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!! Can't be the same slot as where it was installed before!!!
Note: If you have none available swap PCI slots or remove a PCI card to free up a different slot for the wireless card... remove a card you need the least and in its place install the Dlink Card. You may want to hold off on installing in a second step the card you have just removed, to be on the "safest" side.
9) Once the card is installed, Power up your PC
10) Once windows will be back up and running the hardware wizard should kick in and tell you that new hardware was found.
11) Follow the on-screen instructions
12) click "Continue Anyway" when XP will warn you that the driver hasn't been signed
13) Installation should be completed after you click Finish at the end of the New Hardware Wizard process
14) Simply go to your wireless networks and make sure all works in order
(I know that this process may sound a bit "anal" in some steps, but I was no longer willing to deal with any possibility of problems of any kind as I was ready to rip that wireless card to shreds!)
I hope this will help those who struggled with reviving an old PC to give to a friend!
Open up PC, Plug it wireless network into a PCI slot, turn on PC, the network device will be recognized and ask for drivers, you insert the CD/DVD that came with it, or use the software you downloaded from Belkin web site and install the WiFi card.. Run the Belkin software and it is installed. reboot PC, put case side back on.

The installed network adapters can be viewed in the windows device manager which can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:
•Opening the Control Panel The Windows Control Panel can be opened by: Selecting Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista) - OR - Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)
•In the Control Panel, Select Device Manager
•In Device Manager, Select 'Network Adapters'
The netgear wpn 511 adapter will appear there if it is correctly installed.

To install your wireless adapter, plug in the wireless card, and put your cd driver into the laptop. Once the adapter is plugged in, your laptop should recognize a new hardware has been installed, and will ask you for a driver (whether to automatically search for it or you can install it yourself. Pick the option of you installing yourself, and put the cd driver in. Then just go through the wizard to install your wireless card. You should be good to go from there! Any other questions, let me know!
Greetings, Assuming you have a new laptop (based on having vista) your laptop is most likely equipped with an express card slot instead of the older standard. Here is a link to illustrate what I am talking about: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16839147002 Note that it is a different shape than the card you purchased from Best buy. Hope that helped. Take Care, -WN
check in device manager via control panel, then click classic view; that the pcmcia card bus controller is present in the list and install the card reader driver if one was supplied, if not then there is no need for a driver and it must be a fault with the pcmcia driver.
