My new Dell Inpiron 530 desktop with a WL-138G_V2 WLAN card was delivered last week and I have tried to set it up with my new Aol wireless router, a Netgear DG834Gv3. After unsuccessful phone calls to both Aol and Dell I have got nowhere. Dell tells me that the card they supplied is "not compatible with Vista" and told me to go to a high street shop to buy a compatible one, although they couldn't tell me what was compatible! They are only going to refund me the cost of the card they built into my new computer. Should I buy a Netgear WG311v3 Destop PC adaptor, or a WG111v2 USB adaptor, or something else? My laptop connects OK to the wireless network. Many thanks.
I have ended up removing the card and connecting via an ethernet cable. This works fine as the router is close by, although it gives me less flexbility should I want to move my desktop sometime in the future.
