Um i installed a new power supply and now the wireless card isn't working. In the device manger it used to be under "Network Adapters" and now it's under "Other devices". I'm on vista but i had an xp driver because only that one worked. Any ideas? The driver isn't working. WIndows update found a different driver once but now it won't..I forgot i can't update without internet
but the vista update driver didn't work anyways..unless it's cause 2 drivers were installed but i don't think so

Once when i installed the vista drivers , windows said it was working, but it still couldn't find any networks. Then when i restarted the driver was gone.

i fixed it by uninstalling the driver, turning off the computer, turning it on, installing the driver, turning the computer off, then plugging the card in, then turning the computer back on.

so basically, follow their instructions. i didn't think it was important to not have the card in when you install the driver. still doesn't explain the psu thing though
