Have a Medion PC with windows XP, it has RaLink RT2500 USB Wireless LAN card, having seen another post regarding the failure of this card to work with SP3, I am trying to find where I can download update with no luck (or no idea). Tried Driver Detective which showed various units in machine needed updated then procedded to ask for $29 to sort out, should have known it wass not free as advertised. Any help appreciated.I have restored system to SP2 and card works OK.

I had this problem with a friend's system when I installed SP3 - all it required was to reinstall the wireless router drivers.

Download driver from Ralink Technology Corp:

I have gone to ambra4's link and the link to Ralink brings up about 25 Zipped files from 1. dot.bmp to data2.cab do I have to open all of these? Sorry about being a bit slow but this is all new to me
