The rig I'm trying to install the PCI adapter is in my sig.
I have a linksys 802.11b/g router
I have another laptop wirelessly connected to the router and it works fine
On the instruction manual, it tells me to plug in the PCI adapter, and the next time windows XP boots the new found hardware wizard will pop up and I could install the drivers from the CD.
But when I plugged the damn PCI adapter (Linksys 802.11g adapter) into a PCI slot and rebooted, the add new hardware wizard doesn't pop up, so I manually start it but it does not find the PCI adapter that's plugged into one of my 3 PCI slots.
At first I thought maybe I didn't plug it in completely, so I made sure of that and tried it with all 3 PCI slots, but windows still doesn't recognize the adapter?
What could be the problem other than the fact that the PCI adapter could potentially be defective?
EDIT: I certainly hope my mobo's not defective now?
