Device driver conflicts
Often other manufactures use chipsets that are similar to Buffalo's and the wireless drivers tend to conflict.
Card installation instructions:
Insert the Air Navigator disc that came with the wireless card.
The main menu on this disc should include a "remove wireless adapter drivers" option.
Click this option and follow the on-screen instructions.
If the option does not appear on the main menu, the uninstall program can be found at d:MDRIVERDEVREMOVE.EXE (with d: being the letter of the CD-ROM drive, so it may vary).
After running the uninstall tool, remove the Buffalo card from your computer, and reboot the system.
Once rebooted, navigate to the Device Manager.
In Device Manager, navigate to to Network Adapters, and click the plus sign to expand the category.
Under device manager, a "broadcom 802.11G wireless adapter" or something similarly named should appear.
Right-click on this and choose uninstall. Right-click the device again and choose Disable. Exit the device manager.
Insert the Buffalo PCMCIA card, and wait for the "found new hardware" wizard to display.
Do not let the wizard install the software automatically. Instead, choose "install the driver from a specific location."
Uncheck all of the places for windows to search (removable storage, windows update, etc.).
There should be an option to manually select a location, or a "Have disk" button. Choose this option.
Browse to the INF file on the disk. On older discs this INF file will be found at d:CBG54WIN2000NETCBG54.INF (if using windows 2000 or XP).
On newer discs, it will be located at d:DRIVERCBG54WIN2000NETDBG54.INF
(Note: these are the locations for the WLI-CB-G54S and WLI-CB-G54HP, the location may vary for other cards)
Follow the rest of the on-screen prompts as if you were installing the driver normally.
If the problem persists, the internal card may have to be disabled in the computer's BIOS.
