USR2216 WiFi card causes Win XP to crash - newbie need help!

    I bought a US Robotics USR2216 22 Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter on EBay. When I
    installed it on a rather elderly PII 350MHz PC it caused the blue screen of
    death to appear - error message "memory parity error". My RAM is fine.

    I've tried it in a different PCI slot and have used the newest drivers from
    the manufacturers' website but the same thing happens & Windows will not run
    at all if it is installed.

    Is this likely to be due to a hardware conflict, dodgy drivers or is the
    card a dud?

    Thanks a lot.

    I'm going to reply to my own posting cos I solved it! There was a conflict
    with my sound card (Yamaha) and ethernet card. Disabling them in Device
    Manager solved the problem. Hope this helps someone else.

  3. What is the min requirements for this cards use? Look at the documentation,
    It might be to slow of a system.

    nope, the requirements are for a 100MHz processor. It works fine with a
    different sound card installed.
