Zonet ZUN2200 Issues

I have a laptop (it's an HP, but I turned it into a "vanilla" XP Home machine). This machine only has USB v1.0 and I am lately burning DVD's, so I bought a Lite-On external DVD reader/writer/rewriter. It's taking a long time to burn a DVD with a USB v1.0 connection, so I bought the Zonet ZUN2200 (a PCMCIA cardbus card). When I got it home and opened up the box (it wasn't sealed in shrinkwrap and didn't have a tape seal) I discovered these contents: the card itself, a CD, and a "power cord" (more on that later). Note what was NOT present: a manual. The power cord was described (on the box) as "optional," so I decided to try living without it first. I rebooted my laptop and while it was rebooting I unplugged the DVD drive from the USB v1.0 socket. Once the computer had started, I stuck the ZUN2200 into the PCMCIA slot and it was recognized by XP. Then I plugged the DVD drive into one of the two USB sockets, but the computer didn't "see" the drive. So, I turned off the computer and used the power cord. On one end is a socket to put into the card and on the other end was a plug to be put into the computer's P2 keyboard socket. The cable includes a USB socket, which I guess is for connecting a keyboard (though it would seem to make a lot more sense to have a P2 socket to replace the one you are using). Anyway after powering the ZUN2200 the DVD drive (once plugged in) was visible to the computer, but now the computer simply freezes up from time to time (and fairly soon after you start using it). Anyway, anybody got any ideas what's amiss here before I return the card for a refund?

I have the same problem when connecting my ipod and usb hard drive. I think the card is just a piece of crap. I've also tried a different card before but had no luck either. I guess its time to get a new laptop.

How do I disable Zonet router's firewall?

You may want to try to manually configure the router with an static DNS. You should be able to contact your ISP for the DNS server IP and then log into your router and enable manual DNS settings on your router to use the DNS IP address.

Since Zonet no longer exist you should have a user guide handy,

I Installed the software for the Zonet ZEW2508 on my laptop with windows xp home.. Now what? (I have an operating wireless router already)

Ignore the software and use the built-in wireless utility that comes with Windows to configure your network. There should be a small icon by the clock that looks like a radio antenna with waves, right-click it and select to 'View Available Wireless Networks'. The rest is self-explanatory.
If the Windows utility states that it is not managing your wireless networks, you'll need to disable the Zonet utility first. If you need help with that, let me know.
Good Luck!

I CAN'T COPPY FROM MY OLD CAMCORDER SONY TO MY NEW HP LAPTOP

Hi there
Vista does not support that camera, you will have to use an XP machine to copy to, this is because there are many hardware and driver issues with Vista.

Thanks for using Fixya!!!!

Zun2200 CardBus freezes Toshiba laptop

Double check with Toshiba.com to see if an updated CardBus driver is available for the Laptop, not the accessory. also look for Chipset and BIOS updates.

Also check out the ZUN220 manufacturer site for a new driver as well.

Can't connect my Linksys WRT54GS router to zonet zps1000

The gateway would be the address that your router uses.

You would plug the print server into the back of the computer using the ethernet line.
