Compaq 1200 Sound crackles with wireless PCMCIA card
Posted on 2004-04-06
I just installed a dlink router on my network which works great. Then I dropped a D-Link DWL-650+ PCMCIA Wireless LAN card into my Compaq 1200-XL106, which connects fine, but everytime it transfers data over the wirless, my speakers crackle rather loudly. When I mute the sound card the speakers continue to crackle, but they do not ever do it with any other pcmcia cards, just with the Wireless Lan. I tried a different make of wireless card to discover that it did the same thing, only the crackles are in a different key. *Sigh*
Any suggestions on how this may be remedied, other than upgrading my old laptop? Thanks!
