    I have an older laptop with a DLink 802.11b card. The computer is running Windows ME. I was able to download and install the drivers, but there is no available software to download from DLink for configuration of the card so that I can detect and connect to my wireless network. Does anyone know of a third party tool that will do this for me so I can get surfing with this? Thanks.

    What is the exact model number of the card?

    It should begin with a 'D'

    I can't go through those steps. As I stated in my post, I dont have the configuration software....therefore I can't do any of the things needed to connect to the network. I need the software.

    Bobby thanks for trying to trouble shoot the problem, but I need 3rd party software. It's not available on their website and I spent an hour of the phone with them and they can't provide it to me. I need SOMETHING ELSE that is not D-Link. There's nothing on their website that will help.

    This is strange as their FAQ on the installation says the configuration utility is in the download.

    Typical dumb questions from a tech support guy...Have you rebooted since you installed the drivers?

    Is yours the triangular kind or does the part that stick out look rectangular?

    I owned the old triangle one and it has an older, albeit more compatible chipset. I donated it to my friend's Tivo or Prismq or one of those goofy net/tv gadgets....OS was linux and it didn't have the drivers for any of the modern TI chipsets.
     
  11. I don't think it matters that it's wireless.I think it's like Win98 and you need to download WinPOET.
