I have a strange problem. I'm working with an IBM Thinkpad laptop. I am trying to install a wireless network adapter. When I insert the adapter, the system picks it up, and installs drivers, but if I go to a command prompt and try to do an ipconfig /all. It says it can not complet the operation while the media is disconnected. I tried several more times, put card in the other slot, etc, same thing. It is a wireless B card and my router although a wireless G is in mixed mode. If I take the card and put it in my own laptop (Compaq), it works fine. If I take my card (wireless G) and put it in the Thinkpad it works fine. So, there is no problem with either card or with either laptop, but for whatever reason, the Thinkpad doesn't like the wireless B network card. Anyone have any suggestions? How can I completely remove any cached drivers, etc??
