Do you know what underlying chipset that card uses? If you can find that out, then we can probably help out further.

Try searching Google for Linux to find that out-- while you're there, you might be able to even find out how to actually configure the device...

...Moving thread to Networking. This seems the more appropriate place. Please specify what OS you are running, so others can assist you better.

Let me get a few details so I can fully understand what you are working with.

  • What Operating System are you using?
  • The access point that you are trying to connect to is a Microsoft MN700 Wireless Base Station, correct?
  • Which Microsoft WiFi card are you using on the laptop? Please give me a specific model number.

windows xp pro on my gatway solo 9300. thanks but i figured it out on my own. simply studying the instruction guide. i simply had to go & enter my id into my wireless lancard by going into wizard setup that guided me right to it, pretty simple. thanks everyone for the help

i would like to know how to set up my wireless lancard, so i can use it away from home. tyied it at work about a mile away from my wireless router & got a poor signal & can't connect.

Wireless access points have a very limited range. The fact that you were able to get a signal at all from that range is amazing. Wireless networks are meant to be local solutions, not long-range solutions similar to cellphone networks. If you want to use a wireless connection away from home, you need to have a local access point to connect to.
