Issue with new system

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just got a new mobo/ram/proc (now my sig rig) and I cannot seem to use the PCI wireless adapter I used in my old one...

Wireless adapter: Netgear WG311T

As long as Windows doesn't 'notice' it's there (or have a driver for it) everything runs fine. During driver installation the system completely locks up - I have to hard reboot and then Device Manager tells me it cannot start due to a corrupt/missing driver.

HOWEVER, I did get it to run twice. I've reinstalled Windows many a time over the past 2 days trying to get this to work... twice it did. I don't believe I did anything differently, 'cause I have tried and tried but can't get it to work anymore. BUT, once I installed the onboard NIC drivers it locked up again (wouldn't even boot into windows).

Is this motherboard simply incompatible with my wireless adapter?

So far:
1. The drivers I'm using are NOT currupted. They did work, twice. I have 2 drivers - the stock drivers - and WildPackets drivers I use to run airodump-ng. Both result in the same failure.
2. I'm currently connecting on a D-Link USb WiFi card, and it works fine.


PS: I have not paid for internet in about a year. I use a large homemade directional antenna mounted outside my 2nd floor window & take advantage of access points in my area. ATM I'm lucky I can get an access point with this USB card...

Could it be a BIOS issue where the PCI slot is not enabled?

Edit: Oh, I see it worked a couple of times.
