I am having so many problems with this MN700 and MN720
setup. I through it in my brother's laptop (Dell
Inspiron 5150) and it connected in about 4 seconds and is
great. My HP Pavilion is another story all together. At
first it would come up with an error saying that it was
the wrong WEP key. I was running no encryption at all.
I finally got that error gone, but now it just sits there
and timesout waiting for an IP. I assigned static IP's
to everything but it still won't connect. The other
thing is that the Pavilion has a built in wireless
adapter, but I had gone so far as to remove it from the
PC and reinstalled WinXP SP1 and even tried SP2. No
dice. I know that the card works, but for some reason
the combination of the HP and the MN720 is a no go. I
can use the built in one fine, but it only has WAP,
doesn't have the range of the MN-720 nor the speed.

Anyone got any ideas at all on this one. I even bought a
Belkin Wireless 802.11g card and same problem.

If I understand what you wrote correctly:
The MN-700 and the Dell have no problems
The Pavilion with an MN-720 doesn't work
The Pavilion also doesn't work with a Belkin 802.11g adapter
The Pavilion does work with the built-in 802.11b adapter.

Some laptops have difficulty working with any 802.11g card, but work fine
with 802.11b cards, which might explain the problem.

It is starting to look that way. Very odd though since
it shouldn't have any issues if it is a PC Card Type III
slot.

And you were right in your deductions, the MN-720 works
fine in the Dell and not in the Pavilion. I was
convinced that there was something built in that was
causing the issue, but I disabled all the network
adapters and anything that had to do with them as well.
I also got the new firmware update and that went rather
well, though still no Pavilion connection.
