Re: setting up a wireless connection between my linlsys...
First insert your pcmci linksys card into the laptop, you would find a found new hard ware screen, insert the setup disk, and then follow the steps, automatically your card would be installed, once the installation is done, the wireless adapter , would detect wireless signal, try connecting to the wireless network.. if it asks for any key, look at the bottom of your 2 wire router you would find a 10 digit number, enter the number as the number as key code or password, automatically you would get connected.. if case if you have any problem , revert back ..

Install drivers for ethernet card or buy a usb to ethernet adapter. That will get you on the net so you can install your other drivers via thinkvantage installer. Or you can just cruise the net with the usb to ethernet adapter itself.
You can connect to the Internet using your DSL wireless router by several methods.
1. If your HP has a LAN port the you can connect to your wireless router with a LAN cable (provided you have a spare LAN port on the router.
2. You can use a USB wireless adapter to connect to the wireless router.
3. You can use a PCMCIA wireless card to connect to the wireless router.
Both the wireless USB and PCMCIA wireless adapter are approx. $50, my preference is to use a PCMCIA adapter, it leaves the USB port free for other devices,such as USB memory sticks, especially if the laptop has only one USB port.
Not wireless ready - as none of the 2805's were ever pre-wired with wireless card antennas. You can install a PCMCIA wireless card, or use a USB wireless adapter. Either one will work - the PCMCIA cards will be faster.
Some laptops have a modem or wireless card that clip onto the motherboard like how the RAM is fitted to the motherboard. This card is larger than the RAM and may have one or two wires connected to this card. If so you will be able to replace this card.
If the wireless is a chip and is mounted on the motherboard then it would be impossible to replace. Your only solution to this problem is to buy a PCMCIA wireless card and insert into the laptop's PCMCIA slot or use a USB wireless device. You may have to go into the BIOS and disable the internal wireless device.
A little confusing this, it would not say 'Network cable unplugged'
if windows was refering to your D-link wireless connection(It's wireless)
The cable unplugged should be refering to your Wired Ethernet card, so there must be no cable connected at one or other end.
You don't mention anything about what the wireless card is trying to connect to(eg Wireless modem/router or another wireless PC).
Maybe your pc is getting confused as to whether you wish to connect wirelessly or wired, as it can only work through one IP Address at a time.
i could be wrong, but you probably thought that they were working but only one was, you really need to explain why you are using both wired and wireless and what is connected to what,
Please reply and hopefully it'll get sorted
