Ok, so awhile ago I borrowed my dad's computer while mine was in the shop and it worked fine with a wireless pc card. Well, it had some issues so I reformatted it with a dell xp disc service pack 1. Since then I could not get the netgear ma521 card to pick up any networks. So, I spent a ridiculous amount of time messing with it with no success. I used that card on an identical computer and it worked fine. Still thinking it was a compatibility issue, I bought a linksys g-series card with the same issue. The "link" light never lights up. I'm pretty sure I've installed all the correct drivers. What am I missing? I've also tried reformatting using dell disc with service pack 2 and a factory xp pro disc. Same issues with all. I can get online via hard wire and get all updates but I'm just stuck???
