    Hello.I am having problems connecting to the internet via a netgear wireless router.I have had no problem for a long time untill recently when I noticed a yellow exclamation mark next to: Intel pcic compatible pcmcia controller.When I look at the propertiesfor this I see code 10 this device will not start.Underneath this device is a Texas Instruments pcixx12 cardbus controller which is working fine.Everything else in device manager is working fine and in place.
    I can get on the internet but some sites are not loading up.
    Should I uninstall the pcmcia controller and reinstall or is there something else causing it to malfunction.
    Any suggestions would be much appreciated
    Cheers Jim

    I'd reinstall the chipset drivers for the computer first, and also make sure that it's not disabled in the BIOS. Are you connecting your network through the PCMCIA card?
