    I have a belkin wireless g pci and it is not detected in one of my computers and a couple more I had but works fine in all the others. I work on computers by the way. Its not detected at all in device manager or add new hardware. I called belkin and they couldn't figure it out so they sent me a replacement so now I have 2 but still not detected. The computer I have is a x brand with asus txp4 mobo. I jumpered the p1 to run at 250mhz, 64mb ram. I thought it might be the os so I took off windows 2000 pro and installed 98se but didn't work. I tried to update the bios and play around with the bios settings and switching pci slots. I can't figure it out. Hopefully you can help.

    Is any card detected in one of those problem slots? Have you tried switching a working card into such a slot and putting the wireless card in a known working slot?

    I'm mostly just guessing, but think it's a problem with the slot(s), not the OS and not the card.

    I just switched slots with modem and wireless card and that slot detected the modem and the other one didn't detect the wireless card so its working. Is there a jumper on the board or something in the bios I have to set up properly.

    I'm totally surprised with that result! Also, I'm totally lost now. :( If you hadn't said that the card works in other computers, I'd be saying the card is bad.

    You may want to click on the red triangle in the upper right and ask to have this moved to the Hardware forum. It's a close call since the card is for networking, but I think you're more likely to fnd the right expertise in hardware.
