What is your Wireless card?
have you tried the XP driver? (sometimes works)
If you look closely at the chips on the PCI card you might be able to identify the "real" manufacturer, then try their web site.

or Free sign up to drivers-guide

or put the card into the PC and run a full windows update, make sure you change the "update" setting to look for more than just "windows" updates.
and lastly, leave it in the XP system and get a new "Vista" compatable card, either PCI or USB

    That might be a problem because vista has so much bugs, you might need to get one that operates in the vista environment

Does the dell studio 540 pc come with a built in wireless card


The wireless card was optional for that particular computer. You can see if you have one by clicking the start button (lower left corner) right click on computer and select "manage". When the window opens click device manager in the left window and find "network adapters" in the larger center window. If you see a wireless card listed in that then you have one and it should be activated already (there's no on/off switch for wireless on a desktop). If you don't, any PCI wireless card can be purchased for 15-30 bucks. To install it, turn off and unplug your computer, take off the side panel of your machine, remove the i/o cover adjacent to the PCI slot you plan to use and insert the card into the pci slot and secure it with the screw that held the cover on. Power on your computer and run the driver installation software that came with the card you purchased.

Reformatted Windows XP does not recognize D-Link wireless adapter


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!

Sound driver is not installing.


If its Vista then forget about using your existing sound system. If its not a laptop then you can add a sound card in any PCI slot and the driver & if u are using Vista make sure your new card is Vista compatible. If OS is winXP then you may be able to download the appropriate driver which support HD (high density) sound cards....sodeep

Broadband speed slower with intel pro 2200bg wireless


Is it getting any better if you move closer to the router?
First try to update the driver and see if it works better, if not than there's not really much you can do with it. You can swich to cat5e cable, that will be more than enough, or if you really need wireles speed than consider changeing the wirelesscacd in your laptop.
I suggest you some atheros chip based card, because their signal strength and sensitivity is very good. First figure out what you have, open up the small backpanel of your laptop, if there's two than it could be the bigger one. The card could be Mini PCI or mini PCI-E wichever is similar to your card is the type that you need.
After that go to ebay and search for "atheros mini pci" or "mini pci-e atheros", see description for compatibility, or ask the seller if you are not certain. Delivery usually takes about up to 5 bisness days.
Depanding of the card's exact chip you can download driver from here.
Just check before ordering if there's a driver or not for your OS, because as you can see they don't have drivers for some older chips if you have a relatively new windows like Vista or if the chipset is new in some cases there's no driver for XP
But for most cards there's a working dirver and it really makes a diference after most cards.

To swich the card:
-Download the driver for the new card.
-Uninstall the current wireless driver in windows and shut down the computer.
-Swich the wireless card for the new one.
-Start the system and install the driver.
-Enjoy your new card.

My wireless network adapter's device driver doesn't work


Download the latest drivers for XP or Vista

Note: If you can't find Vista drivers for Vista use XP drivers.

Uninstall the driver from XP or Vista.
If you have PCMICA adapter card in laptop remove it.
Reboot the PC

Note: If the network adapter is built-in laptop or PCI (desktop) leave it along.

Re-install the drivers and wait for the driver to tell you when to install the device if you have this option and don't have PCMICA card adapter for wireless.

If the card still doesn't work it could be faulty or OS is corrupted and needs to be re-installed. (this would be the last step to fix the problem)

Vista Ultimate = no sound


Looks like you need to buy a new soundcard. Creative Labs makes an excellent 7.1 digital card for PCI slot that is relatively cheap. Just make sure when you purchase the card, it is Vista Compatable.

Wireless card not functioning/disabled after loading XP in a Compaq Presario C700T CTO Notebook PC


The wireless is not going to turn on and off via the switch properly until we get the drivers loaded to make it work. There are 3 possible types of wireless card it could be, so we have to find out the exact model number of your system. On the bottom there should be a label that has a P/N or part number listed. what are those numbers. Here's an example of the label:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00033108&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=3632144&dlc=en

or

http://tinyurl.com/35dt4h

we need the info listed for #1, #2 and #3. Then we should be able to determine which adapter you have, and then we can (hopefully) find some Windows XP drivers for you.

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

Use instead the Microsoft Windows Wireless configuration utility.
