older gateway laptop, re-installed XP. Can't connect with a wireless pcmia card (tried netgear and linksys)

The device manager has ? on OTHER -- network controller,
the Network adapter has the 1394 and the intel pro100
PCMIA adapters shows 2 texas instrument card bus controllers.

I have downloaded/installed all the relative drivers from the gateway web site.

When the card is inserted or removed there is a beep.

I have tried both a netgear and a linksys pcmia card, same results .... nothing

ANY IDEAS ???//

The networking devices under "OTHER" device might be those PCMCIA cards, but you need to install the correct Netgear or Linksys drivers for them to be recognized correctly.

I uninstalled both the linksys and netgear cards a number of times, no luck.

You mean you installed? Have you gone to Device Manager and used the Update Driver feature to browse to the appropriate driver on the installation CD or the downloaded/extracted drivers from the manufacturer's website?

Does this 'other' network device disappear when you remove the wireless card?

I downloaded their latest installation programs and executed them.
I also went to the device manager and updated the drivers by searching both the internet and other times by searching the cd.
