I had a fine wifi connection between between my modem and my notebook (Compaq Presario 2120; OS Windows XP Home Edition in French) through a Thomson Speedtouch 110 wireless PC card (PCMCIA card sent by the ISP along with the modem) until some weeks ago. Then the "power" led of the PCMCIA card turned automatically off. Since then the connection has not been working, so I supposed the PCMCIA card had to be changed, and bought another PCMCIA card, a Netgear WG511.
I installed the driver, restarted the computer, inserted the card. The notebook indicated that it had detected a new hardward component ("Controleur Ethernet") - however, it was unable to complete its installation (The wizard could not find the program on your computer for ... Ethernet controller). The CD-ROM was, of course, inserted, I also tried to connect the notebook to internet via an ethernet cable - to no avail.
When I re-inserted the old Thomson card, it was also detected - as a PCMCIA card of unknown manufacturer. And when I tried to install this, using the CD-ROM supplied by the ISP, it did not work either.
In the Control Panel I tried uninstalling the "Controller Cardbus O1Micro ..." before installing the Netgear driver and a few more things. At a certain point of the process an error message appeared:
"A support file of the installation 'C:\ ... \LOCALS~1\TEMP\{...}\liced8ec.rra' could not be installed.
The process cannot access this file as the file is used by another process." And when I search for this file, I cannot find it on the hard disk.
Any ideas how I could reestablish the wifi connection between my notebook and the modem?
TIA?
Attila
