I have a Proxim Orinoco 8482-WD PCI Card.
Before installing the card into a PCI slot
1. Started windows and removed any drivers & software for the card.
3. Installed orinoco software Version 410161
4. Shut down computer.
5. Installed card into PCI slot
6. Started computer.
7. Windows recognized the card and asked to install the drivers.
8. I told it to automatically do so.
9. Driver installation went ok until it got to NTPR11AG.SYS (Then the computer locked up)
10. I had to cold boot
11. Windows would not start (it hung up at the splash screen)
12. Had to go into safe mode and uninstall the software and drivers.
13. Then windows would boot. But Card would not work, because the drivers were not installed.
Is it possible this card is gagging because of the on motherboard NIC ? Or am i missing something else?
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.

According your problem it seems to be your try to install faulty Network card. So better is check with new good card.another possibility is some time pci slots fail to recognise a hardware, so try it with another pci slots of mother board.According to you onboard network card is dead, means motherboard fails to work when connect to a network,after successfull installation of network card also the possibility of motheboard not allow you to work with new network card ,same situation may arise,i am also managed same problems in several customer place while working as an computer hardware engineer.So try with new network card it may solve your problem
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.
Go to the web site http://www.proxim.com/ You will need to register for an account and your product under support. The you will be able to download the driver for your product. Let me know if I can helpif you have any other problems.
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.
