Wireless network issue, no TCP/IP entry

    I'm about demented! I have a Sony Picturebook PCG-C1 running ME and I'm
    trying to install a Belkin F5d7011 WLAN card.
    Card installed ok and it's seeing my wireless router tho the card setup
    utility doesn't show an IP address. I assume this is due to there being
    no TCP/IP protocol bound to the card (only binding is IEEE 802.1X), I
    cannot seem to install TCP/IP as I'm only being offered a 'Have Disk'
    option when I try to Add Protocol(can't find the inf files required).
    Searched for the solution but I'm out of my depth here and Belkin gave
    up on me saying to get the stack(TCP/IP) then call back. :)
    TIA,
    David

  2. Hi
    You need the original Windows CD to install the Network's stacks when using
    Win98/ME.
    Otherwise (if the computer cpu and memory allow), upgrade to Win XP.

    Hi Jack, thanks for the response but assume I'm thick. :) I have the
    Windows Me disk but I wasn't asked for it during install. If I ask to
    install TCP/IP where should I look for the drivers. I guess I'll need
    to extract them from a cab somewhere?
    Thx.

  4. Hi
    Take the card out (or switch it off if it is internal), and boot the
    computer without any Network card.
    This process might clean out the Network stacks.
    Switch off the computer put the card in make sure that the drivers of the
    card installed correctly ( http://www.ezlan.net/faq#ghost ).
    If Windows did not started to load on the protocol do it manually. Windows
    Network aspects are a little confused ;)

    This has been done as both the wireless card and my optical drive
    connect via the only PCMCIA slot.
    What I'm needing is a location for the TCP/IP stack drivers as I don't
    know where on the Windows ME disc they exist or what they are named.
    Also don't have the option listed to select them during install, only
    have the Have Disk option when installing Protocols. :(

  6. Hi
    Copy the Windows ME CD as is to an empty directory on your Hard Drive.

    It's also worth noting that you may not have the 'correct' CD. Is the
    Windows ME disk an Installation disk, or is it a Recover disk that you
    received when you purchased the computer. If it's a Recovery disk -
    then your kinda boned. Recovery CD's are usually not configured to
    allow you to pull individual inf files or drivers from them. They are
    meant to nuke your system and rebuild it/reset it to
    fresh-out-of-the-box settings.
