Sorry Walter, I clicked the reply to and not reply to all. (I keep doing that!)
I just got the same CNET PCMCIA card last night! I too am having
problems (strange one's at that). I'm running windows 2000 on the
laptop and perviously used a Linksys WAP11 which I was very happy
Windows will startup as normally when the the card is not inserted
into the laptop, once booted I insert the card and it all works just
fine! However, if I boot windows with the card already inserted,
windows takes twice the time to boot up and when it has booted up,
explorer (not iexplorer) never starts correctly (doesn't display
desktop icons etc). Also the network card does not appear to correct
to the base station. I can see the connection using the supplied
utilities, just not access it
