I've tried the card in every PCI slot and I'm still having the same problem. I used FOLLOWING DRIVERS: 20081210154120.zip AND tl-wn350g_wn350gd.rar

Any suggestions on how to make the Wireless PCI Card work?

  1. Could be a PCI clash.


    Go into the BIOS screens and disable any ports not in use -- for example Game/Midi, COM ports, Parallel Printer. Then uninstall wireless adapter in Device Manager -- and physically -- and restart Windows a few times to reassign resources.

    Try installing wireless adapter again.

    If it proves impossible there may be a hardware fault in the adapter -- or just the combination of that adapter and your computer won't work. There's always USB.

    And I tried and again same problem
  3. If you are using the correct drivers, make sure the failed install is fully uninstalled -- which may involve picking through the Registry.

    But I wouldn't go on banging your head against a brick wall -- if the unit is newly purchased take it back and swap for a different model.

    If older, you may have to buy a new one.

    This TP Link TL-WN350GD is correctly previously worked in another computer with the same driver
