Guys i tried to unplug my 802.11b DLink wireless PCI card and replace with new Trendnet 802.11g card in my win 2k server machine. Driver seems to install ok for trendnet and  the utility for trendset also shows that i am connected to router or my SSID and i see signal strength and etc. Encryption is off so is WEP etc.
however, when i ipconfig in Command prompt. I dont see any information..except for Win 2000 configuration..when i do ipconfig /release, i see error saying that No adapter is installed for TCP/IP using DHCP etc etc. I do not have Static IP assigned for the card.
When i went to device manager, under network adapter, i see driver for Trendnet, another one is driver for Trendnet , but it says Deterministic Network Enhancer Miniport also i see one for DLink and DLink Deterministric Network Enhancer Miniport ( not sure what that is). and i see x or ! beside those drivers ( except for Trendnet). Looks like they r disabled, but when i tried to uninstall , it said "OS needs it to boot, can not install".
i looked in registry for any entries...did not find anything.
Anyone knows how to uninstall those entries....thanx

You might try uninstalling in safe mode...  it shouldn't load the drivers, and then you could more than likely remove them.
