Question about NEC USB 2.0 ( ) Laptop PCMCIA CardBus PC Card Adapter (USBP2D20) Serial Adapter

1 Answer

Windows doesn't detect the adapter

The card works better with windows' own drivers. I have tried with both drivers. The problem is: the adapter worked fine for weeks but now windows just decides that the adapter is no longer connected. I can't see it in the device manager any more. This happens totally randomly. When I try to unplug & plug it again, windows doesn't detect it. Not even if I do "Scan for hardware changes". I managed to get it detected by removing PCMCIA devices from device manager and then scanning for hardware changes. Still, after a few hours the adapter isn't there. I have HP Compaq nx9005 laptop with XP Home SP2.

go to device manager and click on display adapter then right click on ATI X1650 then run an update. It might be because the driver on your computer is not update with the driver that is not compatible with windows 7. Hope this would help. Thanks.

My dear! alway remember that when you use any new hardware you should install driver first and then plug it with CPU. So it could be possible that when you install driver first then card will pick and work properly.
Thank You

Wireless fails to work after reinstalling XP SP2


Hey there,

The wireless driver might only work on Vista, try the IT Administrators - Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows* XP and Windows Vista*from here

First uninstall the one you have though..

Hope this helps

have you tried it with another card? If so then your problem is the zyxel card which I would say stop using. The fact is Zyxel does not make these things they roll off lots of these cards in China and Taiwan and companies put their brands on them, so you are never quite sure of the quality. and yes this is with the majority of these cards. Some companies have better quality control then others and some don't I would say to return this card and exchange it for another one. You might get one that works. That's all I have to say.

INSERT PROXIM CARD-GETTING PCI DEVICE?


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.
