Angry Wireless card doesn't work. please help.

Hi, I have a belkin wireless 54g network card in one of my computers that has stopped working after I re-installed windows.


The mobo's NIC is working though. so I downloaded its latest driver:

when I launch the 'driver program', a dialog box comes up and says: "please insert wireless card then run setup again"

The card IS inserted. It was woking before I did a fresh install.

I don't know what else to do other than take the card out and smash it with a very large hammer.

reseat the card. go into device manager and scan for new hardware if it does not auto detect it.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

right click on my computer, go to properties, go to hardware, then device manager.
under network adapters, right click on the wireless card, then click update driver
if you have the CD, you can keep it on "install the software automatically" and it will (or at least should) search the CD for the right drivers

if not, then click on Install from a specific location
then click on Don't search, I will choose the driver to install
then browse around the CD.
it should have a Drivers folder somewhere, and in that folder, different folders for different OS's. go to the folder for your OS and select the .inf file that is in that folder
