Bufallo WiFi card ok

  akayel 20:41 16 Apr 2008

I have just installed the above (ELI-CB-G54S) card in to my laptop and set it up to talk to my Netgear router....all ok connection confirmed.
My problem is that I am running win2000 on the laptop and it will not connect to the internet, I am sure its just a simple setting that I have missed as I have had another netwrok card working in the laptop before.

Any ideas Please????

What exactly happens when you search for networks and try to connect to yours ?

I suggest you update the driver and check it is supplied for win 2000

Hi Setecio
Many thanks for your offer of help!

I have a Strange situation.
I've made some progress today and got connected to the web.
When I turn on my laptop (win2000) it shows a strong connection to my Netgear wifi but will not connect to the internet.
If I open a dos prompt and ping bbc.co.uk and repeat this 2,3 or 4 times eventually the ping works and I can then go to my iexplorer window and refresh the home page and hey-presto, sucess.
I have re booted several times and this is the only way I can access the web.
I have checked that the wifi card is firmly in the PCMCIA slot so that connection is good.
Any Ideas??
Thanks again!
