I have a ethernet card installed on my laptop and tried to instaslll a wireless card. But WINDOWS 98 doesn't recognize the card. The error window that comes up, actually it is a PC CARD TROUBLESHOOTING AGENT window, and it says: no memory area available to communicate with the device. You must make a memory area available before this device can be used. Upper Memory region between a000-FFFF.
The card is an ADDTRON AWP 100
Oh- I removed the ethernet card-- thinking this would free up the memory region-- nothing. The Addtron card is still not recognized.
In the MSCONFIG box (via RUN) The system configuration Utility) Under the GENERAL TAB I clicked the ADVANCED-- ther eis a box EMM exclude A000-FFFF this is Extended Memory management. When I check the box and restart the machine, the PC CARD TROUBLESHOOTING window now says that there is one or more EMM Exclude=<range> statement in the 386Enh section. "These statements prevent Windows from using this memeory area for PC card devices"
