D-LINK DWL-G630 and Dell Latitude

I am normally a patient person, and will persevere with my pc issues. However after stressfull day I am likely to throw two laptops out the window. I have a Vaio which is running xp proffesional. I have a D-LINK DWLG650 network card linked to a D LINK DG 604T Router. My son has my old Dell latitude l400 which the DWL G650 used to work in. Now is the time to get him his own card. I 1st purchased a Linksys wpc11 from Novatech for £6. this proved to be an unwise by as it was only wep enabled where as my router is WPA. I Downloaded the latest driver to no avail. in fact the card wouldn't connect even with no security enabled on the router at all. Having read the reviews for the card i decided to cut my losses and today purchased a DWL G630 card. I installed it following the instructions to the letter. however it still won't connect. I began to get concerned it was the laptop, though replacing the card with my g650 card connects to the network straight off. I have tried installing the g630 on my Vaio to try it out to no avail. The act light blinks really fast, has a spell then blinks really fast again. I have tried setting up the ip address manualy still the same result. If anyone can shed some light on this you will make one little boy very happy and one father will be able to retain his laptop...

the new card was installed on a reformatted drive with only Win xp installed. Yes i believe i have installed the card correctly following both the guide that came with the card and the online guide to the letter. Your link appears only to be for the americas and Canada. Ihave tried the uk web site thus far without success.
