    Hey Guys,
    Wondering if someone can help. After reinstalling Windows from scratch, I'm trying to install the Belkin Wireless G Plus desktop card. When I boot up the PC, it recognizes the new hardware, so when I try to install the software the Wizard prompts me for the BCMWL5.SYS file but it's nowwhere to be found. When I insert the install CD, it doesn't find it there either. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
    Thanks.
