I am getting the error message "windows cannot install network controller" in the device manager.  The network controller has a yellow exclamation mark in the device manager.  The computer is running windows vista.  What can I do to correct this problem?  Thanks,

Try downloading a driver from the manufacturer or use the CD that came with the controller.  If the driver is not an autoinstalling version then you can right click on the yellow exclamation item in the device manager and use Update Driver...

Few questions.
Have you recently added networking hardware?
Is this a new development? as in, was it working last week and now it isnt?
Does device manager give you any details at all on the item?  if so please list the manufacturer and part.

The problem is that the Zonet wireless PCI adapter is not Vista compatible.
It is indicated on the box that the card is Vista Compatible but it is not.  This is
misleading advertising and everyone should avoid purchasing Zonet products!
