I installed an Linksys Wireless G PCI Adapter WMP54G in my Gateway G6-300 desktop running Win 98SE. With this installed the computer restarts after shutdown even though I choose the 'Shut Down' radio button. I installed the Windows 98 Second Edition Shutdoen Supplement from Microsoft. This did not fix the problem.

zvitam: I went to the BIOS upgrade site and it cautions that flashing the BIOS may render the system unuseable. I don't want to risk that.

Callandor: I tried many of the suggestions at the WINDOWS SHUTDOWN & RESTART CENTER--nothing worked. Of the BIOS it said: "If you are not experienced in upgrading your computer’s BIOS, you may wish to have this done by a professional."

So I took the card out and the computer shuts down again. I think I will just return it . Thanks to both of you anyway.
