    I put in netgear wireless llb pcmcia card in my compaq running xp

    The driver seems to be OK and the computer recognizes the card

    It says wireless network not connectec

    when I try to connect or try to view wireless connections
    I get message windows can't configure the wireless network

    When I tried to follow the instructions on the microsoft site,
    and tried to run the program it said to run to let windows zero configure the network It couldn't find the program

    What if anything can I do

    Unfortunately I can't connect the computer to the internet without the wireless as I'm out of town, typing this in now at a library computer, which right now is my only occasional access to the internet until I get this straightened out.

    Chances are that when you installed the Netgear driver and utility you told the utility that you wanted it to manage the wireless. Its icon should be in the Notification Area--double click on it, go to the Network (I'm going from memory here) tab, find the network you want and connect to it.
