INSERT PROXIM CARD-GETTING PCI DEVICE?

I have a Proxim 8480 Gold card and it was working fine until a couple of weeks ago. Now when the computer boots up with the card I am getting a "Found New Hardware" and it shows PCI Device. After removing the Orinoco driver and reinstalling I may get the computer to recognize the card. If it does and leaving it idles for about 4 mins., it then locks up on me! I have to remove the battery pack from the computer to unfreeze the system. Anybody else or any suggestions on what's going on??

It may be that the driver being used ia a generic one that Windows updated if it's on automatic, and not the driver you got with the adapter. Start from beginning again, uninstal card and drivers if still there, but make sure Windows looks to your installation CD for the driver and not a Windows generic one. You may have to re-start your system, and make sure your router sees the card in it's ip address allocation.

Hello, good afternoon. My problem is that i need the driver for Proxim ORiNOCO 11b Silver 802.11b (8425-WD), but i need the driver with support for WPA password. Regards, JOHN JAIRO BECERRA

It doesn't look like that model supports WPA according to this doc on the card models, and WPA.

A connection with server cannot be established message I keep getting. I can see my router fine but cant connect.

This problem is because there is some misconfigurations that you might have done on the ip address part or either you have added a static ip address which is not getting along with either the DHCP address.

So just check that and try. or else remove it then put it back then try.

Orinoco Classic Gold PCMCIA Card Not Showin any Networks in Range

They may not be compatible with your WiFi card. That seems most likely. Check what type of WiFi you have - A, B, D, etc and then make sure your card is compatible - yours is 802.11b. WiFi have different frequencies and channels so it is not simply enough to plugin a card and have it work. If you need an expert, bring your computer to a BestBuy store (even if you did not buy it there)and ask them what is wrong.

Proxim skyline 802.11a cardbus card troubleshooting

Hi,

you need an access point or wireless router. Over here in the UK 802.11a you require a licence for class a devices. However all of the proxim decvices I have used in the past have been A/B/G compliant so you if your particular card is A/B/G compliant then you should be able to get a B/G class access point or router.

Hope this helps, please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards

Nick

WIRELESS INTERNET AT HOME WITH PROXIM NOT WORKING WITH Y VISTA

Make sure you enable the wireless card in device manager.
and also check the wireless card switch (switch it to enable/disable wireless card) on the front (close to headphone jack). If it isnot working, it's something wrong with your wireless card.

Wi-fi problem

I went to the Proxim website (www.proxim.com) to see if I could find info on the card, but Proxim looks like they make you register before you can get any information.

You probably just need a Vista driver. Go to the Proxim site, register, and see if one is available.

Good luck.

Proxim Orinoco 8482-WD PCI Card, Driver installation locks Win-XP

Try the other way around,first install the card then boot the system up. When Windows finds the card and asks for the driver, insert your driver cd and choose install driver manually and point windows to your cd drive to force the use of the correct driver. It may be that windows is trying initially to install the generic driver.
