The card is showing up in device manager after installing the cisco driver and software, but is showing as resource not available, even while it is enabled. Tried the cisco software diagnostics, fails during enable test, says to enable card. Card is enabled in device manager, resource tab says resource unavailable.

Hi

Just a suggestion.

Make sure your laptop don't have any button to enable/disable wireless support.

Hi,

You are right, i did realise that after my post, because in my laptoop is the same, only controls onboard NICs, but as i think your card have also a way to enable\disable wireless radio, so may could be this since it's an old good card.

Which OS are you runnig, and which management utility do you use? If you're are running windows xp\2000 which utilities\software you installed?

There should be an application that should let you enable the wireless radio, o rome administration utility which shows you all other utilities.

Hi again,

I did a research and found this doc about your card, and it says there is an app that lets you enable\disable wireless radio on the card, so you can give it a try.

If you don't have ASTU installed just go to the link below and browse "Client Adapters and Client Software>>Cisco Aironet Wireless LAN Client Adapters>>Cisco Aironet 802.11a/b/g CardBus Wireless LAN Client Adapter (CB21AG)" (the download area is only for registered users)
