Hi, first post on the forums today so hopefully i get lucky and someone knows the answer
I just bought a new chaintech 7NJL6 motherboard from newegg.com, i know from many other people that this board isnt the most stable by any means but im short on cash right now so i had to get it.
So far its running pretty smooth after all the problems of reinstalling xp over and over. But everything seems stable for now i guess /crosses fingers.
The only real problem i have is getting my linksys wireless-* PCI adapter to work in one of the PCI slots on the Mobo. In my previous motherboard it worked fine so i know its not the card, and in the back of the cpu case i saw the green light always on as soon as i started the computer (in my old mobo). Now with the chaintech i have tried every single PCI slot except for the one near my agp adapter because ive got a geforce 6600gt and it just wont fit there. None of the slots give a green light on the back of the computer, BUT the motherboard recognizes it when i go into windows. However it will not connect with the latest driver straight from linksys and the green light still isnt on even when windows seems to see it in hardware manager.
I'm totally lost on where to go from here, can the 7NJL6 even support wireleess PCI cards?? any help is much appreciated thanks!!
