    whats the make and model of the card
    whats the make and model of the PC

    can we see a device manager screen shot


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Device Manager
    Post back the results in device manager
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

    windows key and pause Key should open to allow device manager to be seen on laptops may need to use windows key + FN key + Pause Key
    if not then

    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
    windows 7
    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

    network adaptors, click on the + > post back the devices listed there
    are there any ! ? or X


    post a screen shot of the device manager - network adapters

    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

    can you follow the instructions on device manager - network adapters
    on the item marked other device ? can you do the following
    right click on the device with a yellow?
    Properties
    Click on the Details Tab
    Under Property - drop down
    Select hardware ids
    Right click and select all.
    Then right click again and select copy.
    Copy and paste that here.

    The Hardware ID's. VEN & DEV. Look them up here.

    That computer uses a GeForce 6150 LE chipset and the NVidia nForce is your onboard ethernet adapter. Drivers for it are usually included in the chipset drivers. Not sure if you can find separate drivers for that, so you probably need to reinstall the chipset drivers.

    Don't see any thing that would be the PCI card unless it is the other. Folow etaf's advice.

    From the database - its identified the ? device as a wireless adapter

    What happens if you right click on the ? device and update driver and then point to the CD , dows it find the driver - you may have to point it to one of the sub directories

    and the info from that database is below

    Using the first link, here http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/support/adapters/WMP54G there is a download version of the driver for XP _ is the version 4.1 should be written on a label on the device card itself

    This link is for the wireless utility
    http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_support/license.php?sn=5009#
    i would not bother with that at this stage - as i would recommend using windows wireless utility WZC (wireless zero configuration)

    The last link http://www.edimax.com/en/support_detail.php?pd_id=1&pl1_id=1&pl2_id=44 goes to edimax site and has a download for XP - its quite possible it has the same chipset
