Cannot get rid of original wireless hardware settings

    I set up my laptop with a Linksys card, decided to try a Buffalo card since
    I can use an external antenna with it. Connects to most things, except at
    work where they are using certificates. Once I put Linksys back in
    everything works fine. No matter how I "uninstall" the linksys drivers and
    how I install the Buffalo drivers the Device settings show up as Linksys. I
    think this may be the problem, but cannot get rid of the old settings.

    Any suggestions, short of reformat, reinstall XP, and make the first install
    the Buffalo card?

  2. With the Buffalo card in the machine, go to Device Manager,
    properties, update driver, choose the driver manually, have disk and
    point to the correct drivers. You may have to make some choices about
    replacing the current driver, etc.
