Question about X-Micro Technology XWL-11gCAG 802.11g/b (xwl11gcag) Wireless Adapter

XP-SP2 hangs on boot after installation

CPU Intel Core2Duo E6300; M.Board Foxconn P9657AA; OS XP-SP2 I installed the X-Micro driver (from web) for the XWL-11GCAG to a clean XP-SP2 installation, and turned PC off, inserted PCI card and rebooted. XP seizes up during boot and hangs. If I turn PC off and remove card, XP boots correctly. I previously had an AMD Sempron 2800 system which worked very well with the same XWL-11GCAG card. Does anyone know if the XWL-11GCAG and driver is compatible with the E6300 Core2Duo? Many thanks in advance

    Many thanks sandrew - good advice. Unfortunately the PC still locks on bootup. Installing card and booting ran 'Add hardware' which found drivers and installed. It is then on rebooting I get hang. There is a motherboard ethernet controller and even uninstalling drivers for that makes no difference). Incidentally, the X-Micro manual says clearly to install drivers THEN the card. So certainly a conflict somewhere - time to get a new card ;)

I think maybe better uninstalling driver, but leave card in and boot system and let windows find the card(hardware) first instead of wot sounds like windows looking for driver and freezing in the boot up process as it will look for a connection to internet for an update or driver. Normally any usb periferals should be connected after driver installation, but any pci or agp cards inserted first, then driver.

    Maybe you would be better using a usb wireless device, incase it is a board problem.

    Good luck

Does dual core processor support Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H mother board

The Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H motherboard has a LGA 775 Socket. It will support Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, and Core 2 Duo processors with an FSB of 1066 (800MHz). Thus is should support the dual core 775 processors. (Some Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs may also be compatible with the board.)

I hope this helps.

Repeated failure to load Windows 7 HP

Foxconn don't have this board on their list of their Windows 7 supported chipsets (which is hardly surprising), but as you state all your individual components should be perfectly OK with Windows 7 .
I suggest you flash the Bios because Foxconn had to produce a new Bios for Vista in order for that OS to run correctly.

Best of luck.
