    yosi: What kind of a machine do you have? Did you just reinstall the Operating system?

    When you install a modem or network card (and some other cards as well), it shows up in Device Manager and in the New Hardware Found Wizard as "PCI Simple Communications Controller", until you install drivers for it.

    Therefore I think you actually need drivers for the card.

    If you are using a Dell Latitude D610 or similar, you have a TI PCMCI Card Slot with integrated Smart Card reader. The driver for the Smart Card is not being installed. This happens when clean installing WinXP or WinVista. In my case the following Dell Driver solved the problem."Vista 32 Drivers for TI PCI6515 Cardbus/Smartcard controller" http://support.us.dell.com/support/...id=R165177&fo rmatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=222314

    Hope I've helped you solve the problem...

    It helped me on my Latitude D810 under WinXp - thanks! :)

    (Clean-installed XP after a meltdown - didn't even know I *had* a SmartCard Reader! LOL)
