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.

How to enable wireless networks on hp pavilion a6330f or does it need a wireless card and which and what type of card or PCI or USB? What is a PCI? How to install a wireless card?


See the link below for product specifications.The simple way to go is an external usb adapter for wireless, since your motherboard only has one PCI slot and it likely has a 56K modem installed in it. Remember to put the driver disk which comes with your adapter in the CDROM/DVD drive BEFORE you plug in the usb adapter , and follow the installation directions carefully - unrecognized usb devices can be difficult to remove...

Can't get wireless card to install


This is strange, and it sounds like you've done everything right, but.....have you tried a reverse install?

Remove the card, un-install all the drivers and remove the device from the device manager if the uninstall doesn't do it.

Shut the machine down (turn it off)

Install the Linksys card in your available PCI slot.

Start the machine back up. When the Found New Hardware message pops up, follow the prompts from there instead. Your PC may be able to load drivers it already has. If not and if it asks for a disk, then use the CD you got with the card.

All of this assumes the card is ok to use with XP

I have a Dimension 2400 Celeron desktop. Can I put in a wireless card?


Hello

Yes unless the PCI slots are already being used. Buy a Linksys or Dlink PCI wireless card and follow the instructions very carefully. You will be at some point opening the case. Make sure then power is absolutely disconnected. I'm assuming you do have a wireless network already? If not then you'll need to purchase a wireless router also.

You dont have to remove the ethernet card, as i suspect it would be buit onto the motherboard in anycase. Just install the wireless card into a free pci slot.
