Wireless Ethernet PCI Card dat was previously installed not working after XP installation.
Posted on 2004-11-11
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I upgraded my Desktop (hewlett Packard) from win 98 to windows Xp proffesional.
After the upgrade under the network connections I dont see the Wireless Ethernet PCI card that i had installed earliar this year anymore. Basically few months ago I installed a Dlink wireless PCI ethernet adapter on my desktop, by opening the desktop and installing it on the slot available. At the time it said new hardware found, at that time i inserted the CDROM it came with and it all worked fine. Now after the upgrade. This card disappeared. If I go under NETWORK connections. It only shows the WAN ethernet adapter. And doesnt even show the new wireless ethernet card i had installed. Please let me know what can i do to fix this problem and what is causing this? I am tempted to open the computer up and unseat and reseat the card hoping that it would then say new hardware found and i can install the cdrom for drivers. But not sure if that would fix it. SO please advice. Thanks ,vishal
