Did read all the commets just that i would always have a nagging feeling of doubt without starting at the beginning. Doing things my way... But then i would say that!

Make sure you have SP2 installed to help the wireless as SP2 when you get it will change the settings and add new features and may help to get it to work at all.
February 5, 2007 12:25:26 AM

please listen to exactly what I am saying in each post and reply quickly

btw Spybot told me about an assortment of start values that changed for pretty much all startup programs that I did have running b4

I am now stuck with my wifi card working and the CD is no help, autoplay is not working, neither is double clicking on the setup.exe in the CD

I seem to remember this card needing no seperate drivers: WHAT DO I DO NOW TO GET MY WMP54G to work?

im getting frantic, its not good

Well that makes a lot of sense to me right now. No further explanation needed.

If device manager says everything is installed there will be no yellow or red indicators.

If you still cannot connect to the internet, shut down the PC, pull your power from the cable or DSL modem, for 90sec, then repower it wait till the lights on the modem are lit, and restart the computer.

OK Chill

You are learning fast! Spybot S&D has a resident and you should allow things when you first install windows but once on the internet you need to look things up i.e google the files S&D comes up with! I wish i was there to help!

I recommed doing a Fresh install of Windows (As my long post) and preparing it for the internet rarther than trying to close the drawbridge once you spot the invading troops (Malware)!!!

What you are saying is very nice and all but Im sure that 4ryan6 will agree that it is innappropriate.

Now that your pc seems ok im trying to get you to have a stable install of windows! Can you list your current probs again please Not going to bed untill you've fixed it cos im learning too.

About what now?

I followed your modem reset instructions (as if I had never reset my router)

OK, i got the same DAEMON Tools error as well as all of the numerous Spybot S&D notifications

However I have gotten no where in my quest towards getting my wifi card to work. I still have no control over looking for wifi networks (although i must say that my wifi card's activity light is blinking in 3shot bursts)

I dunno so far, looks to me as if a fresh reformat is needed. And no if no one gives me a reason to calm down I will not

THIS IS GETTING CONFUSING, I DONT NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE LEARNING, ONLY:
I want to know that you are listening to the data that I am spitting out about what is going on.

Right now my Microsoft included Wireless Network Connect feature is dissapointingly missing, and I have no explanation for it.

THAT IS ALL

A fresh install, some water and asprin will all help. (if you do a reinstall) dont connect the card on the first boot

Young people can have heart-attacks too especially if you do sports or are fat (large?)

The asprin thins the blood preventing clots.

So health is the reason to calm down along with a greater understanding of the difficulties that face you (i.e a P.O.S Dell machine used for games)

My lord almighty you are vicious. Im not angry at you or really excited, just quite frustrated at my inability to find a solution for my issue.

While you can stay up all night, I had no sleep last night because of the same PC. We decided b4 that a full reinstall/reformat was unneccessary.
I would lose all of my data (not that its not all backed up), but it would be real annoying to do.

end

p.s. Dont you go calling my XPS a P.O.S dell used for gaming, its very well made in many ways and has lasted me well for years.

Forget that Dickhead!

Didn't you say you have a Linksys router?

You may have to reset that up.

If your previous install was up to SP2 and your reinstall is only up to SP1, its got to be upgraded to SP2, but you should stil be able to setup the router to work.

You need to go back into Device Manager and make sure everything is installed, your ethernet, WiFI, etc.
February 5, 2007 1:05:00 AM

Okay then listen carefully please:

I went to the device manager and then to the card's page

I clicked on update driver, after it repeatedly telling me that it couldnt find a better fit, I got it to install the drivers from the CD

no difference is noted
February 5, 2007 1:07:23 AM

I will reformat/reinstall

any help still will would be great

Did you restart the machine after the driver install?
February 5, 2007 1:10:04 AM

Try removing the card (from windows device manager and physically) rebooting turn off again then reinstall card (in different slot if you can)

Then run driver (check the linksys link i gave you )

If you're that frustrated just quit with it for tonight.

You're almost there, its better to quit and start again later than start from scratch with the same problems.
February 5, 2007 1:15:56 AM

Did removing the card and rebooting (see above) help?

(according to linksys you have to install the drivers before the card.
February 5, 2007 1:17:07 AM

If I end up refortmatting and i run into the same exact wifi card issue, well then that sucks something horrible

but the Other Guy thought of something doable: uninstall the wifi card physically and through device manager
and try to restart and get it going from there:

cant hurt gonna do it now unless you Ryan object

Well logically whats going to change?

You just did a WinXP repair installation, WinXP is fine at this point getting your onboard WiFi hardware is the problem.

Sometimes computers can drive you up a wall, its best to know when to quit and walk away, and try again another day.

Daves got a point there, some hardware needs the software installed first, if he says thats what Linksys requires pull the card and try it.

Oh, I should try to install the software without the card being in yet?

Okay I shall try (i was in the middle of removing the drivers, moving the card over a slot and then put the drivers on <at the point of booting into windows with the moved card>)

I am now shutting down and will remove the card and try to boot.

Wizard CD-ROM into your
CD-ROM drive. The Setup
Wizard should run
automatically, and the
Welcome screen should
appear.
B To install the Adapter, click
Click Here to Start on the
Welcome screen.
C After reading the License
Agreement, click Next to
continue the installation and
Windows will begin copying
the files onto your PC.
D The Setup Wizard will now
prompt you to install the
Adapter into your PC. Click
Next and your PC will power
down.
Proceed to Step 2.
February 5, 2007 1:30:05 AM

got it waiting for winxp to boot, taking a long freakin time... here it is and here i go

I assume that my next step is to try to insert the Linksys CD and try to get it to run

the end
February 5, 2007 1:31:34 AM

I was trying to apply my sense of humor (Mistake)

I really want to spend a day doing this guys pc for him as thats what i get paid for.

Please check your PSU once this is sorted then get a decent PSU from Seasonic anyway!

Next post will be back on subject (i know this annoys)
February 5, 2007 1:33:56 AM

Yes see my badly formatted post above

February 5, 2007 1:34:54 AM

****** this is step 2 ********


Before connecting the PCI
Adapter to your PC, make sure
that your desktop PC is powered
down.
B Open your PC case and
locate an available PCI slot on
the motherboard. Check with
your computer manufacturer
for instructions.
C Slide the PCI Adapter into the
PCI slot. Make sure that all of its
pins are touching the slot's
contacts. You may have to
apply a bit of pressure to slide
the adapter all the way in. After
the adapter is firmly in place,
secure its fastening tab to your
PC's chassis with a mounting
screw. Then, close your PC.
D Attach the external antenna to
the adapter’s antenna port.
E Power on your desktop PC.
February 5, 2007 1:36:21 AM

*********step 3 *********

The next screen to appear will be the
Available Wireless Network screen.
From this screen, you can launch
one of the three setup methods.
Setting Up the Adapter with
Available Networks

screen, the available networks are
listed in the center table by SSID.
Select the wireless network you wish
to connect to and click the Connect
button. (If you do not see your network
listed, you can click the Refresh
button.)
If the network utilizes wireless security,
you will need to configure security on
the Adapter. If not, you will be taken
directly to the Congratulations screen,
shown in Step B.
3 Set Up the Adapter
IMPORTANT: For Quick Installation, use
this document only if your network
appears on the Available Wireless Network
screen.
SecureEasySetup: If you are utilitizing
SecureEasySetup, click the SecureEasy-
Setup button and follow the on screen
prompts.
Manual Setup: If you are utilitizing Manual
Setup, click the Manual Setup button and
