Click on Start - right-click on my computer - click on properties - click on hardware - click Device Manager

Look for your wireless adaptor in the list. Probably under Network adaptors. If it is on the list and there are no yellow question marks or Exclamation points next to it then you have successfully installed the device.

If there is an item that says unknown communication device with a yellow question mark next to it (?), put the set up disk back in and reinstall.

Most of the time when you install a new device in a pci slot, you must install the device physically in the computer first before running setup.

Fitted a Linksys-g 2.4 ghz pci adapter to my kids pc, take make their PC wireless, installed the correct drivers after researching what these were on the internet and all ok. Changed ISP and no longer...


If your modem(the device given by your ISP) connected the linksys router on WAN port just power down all devices and power on modem and make sure all lights are on and then power on linksys router. This should fix most problems. If no luck connect your computer to modem directly and check if you are able to log on to internet! If your modem is not working then your ISP is the best option to call!

System do not reconize the PCI card


Does it ask for a driver to be installed? Or have you got the wireless version of the mobo that needs an ASUS WiFi-b add-on card with an omni-directional antenna?

Like on the previous version of the mainboard, the PCB contains five PCI slots and an exclusive WiFi slot, in its left part. By the way, when you install the original WLAN card from ASUS into this slot, the last PCI becomes unavailable. Now let’s examine the card, too.
wifi-s.jpg
The card supports the wireless networking protocol IEEE 802.11b, describing data-transfer rates up to 11Mb/s. Using the software that accompanies the card, you can use it in the Ad Hoc as well as in the Infrastructure mode, and the card can perform the functions of a programmable access point, providing connections to 31 clients. Thus, the owner of the WiFi-b kit can easily deploy wireless networks and connect to existing ones.

Linksys WMP300N Endless Bootup Loop


Disable or uninstall the Linksys software that manages and monitors the connection.

Use instead the Microsoft Windows Wireless configuration utility.

That's what I did and didn't get problem after.
