    Hi,
    A couple of days ago I brought an ASUS L3000D 2600xp laptop from Dick Smith,
    Also brought a WL-100g (802.11G) wireless network card.
    I had allot of trouble setting it up lie every time my friend would ping me
    my laptop would get a blue screen the shut off, when I come out of sleep
    mode it will crash and when I do other things with the network it will
    crash.
    It only does this when the card is in the PCMCIA slot.

    Any one got any ideas?

    Thanks

    I would see if you can find updated drivers for the WL-100G card from the
    manufacture's web site. Often times, by the time the CD with drivers is
    printed, boxed and shipped, there are newer drivers on the internet that
    fix problems.
    Ciao, Dave
