Netgear has no clue why, but as I am trying to install my new wireless pc card in my laptop running WIN2K the final step after installing drivers and rebooting is inserting the new hardware and almost when completeing the instalation, there is an error reading:
"the form specified for the subject is not one supported or known by the specified trust provider"
I am loged as the admonistrator

Hi Intertrade,
Did you try not following the guide.. just insert the pcmcia card and let it ask for drivers?

?? Try patching up your motherboard firmware.. it might not handle the PCMCIA standard you use..
Still this is strange and do mostly look like a software issue.. Have you tried to download the latest software from the WIFI vendor? Might be a sertificate issue...

I did get the latest software from Netgear, they even escalated the incident to the highest level to no avail, they said it might be a 'TRUSTS' issue.. well saying that does not solve the installation problem. With respect to the firmware patch...how do you suggest I go about it? I have an IBM Thinkpad.
Thanks!!!
