I recently bought a wireless network card called the wavebuddy. The card came with a CD which included drivers for windows xp but when trying to install the card I get an error message saying the drivers not a certified windows driver.  Can anyone tell me where to find any updated driver for this card??  I've looked all over and can't find anything.  I'm running windows xp professional.  Thank you.

Windows does not like it when you install drivers that are not digatally signed by microsoft. The only problem is that like a handfull of drivers are and the rest arent. Do you have the option to install the drivers even though they are not Microsoft Certified?

Try going to Device Mananger, and right click the device with the "!", that should be the Wifi Card. Then go an reinstall driver. Tell Windows to search removeable media and such. It should find the driver and just prompt you that it is not digitally signed. I have never heard of an install stopping because a driver is not digitally signed, normally you are just prompted that it is not signed and have to clikc OK to continue.

When I try to reinstall the driver windows prompts me that its not digitally signed but allows the install to complete, but not successfully. I still get the ! where the wireless card is installed.
