Hi all...

I have a Pinnacle Showcenter 1000 (media centre - quite old, about 3 - 4 years) that came with a PCMCIA Wireless adapter (for the Media Center to connect to an access point). I have got a laptop that I have just installed XP on, and I don't have a wireless card for it, I knew I had one somewhere, but when I pulled this out of the draw I thought what the [bleep], give it a go. Strangely when I plugged in the PCMCIA wireless card a Windows baloon popped up saying "Found new hardware: Broadcom 802.11g_PCMCIA"... The card says broadcom on windows, but has a Pinnacle sticker. I was guessing maybe I could find the drivers somewhere on the net but I can't. The broadcom website has only drivers for Ethernet cards, and firmware updates for wireless routers... I can't seem to find anything on the internet that will lead me to the drivers for this card, I am aware that I might not even get any drivers for it as it is not designed for windows, but as it appears as a broadcom card maybe I have a chance.

Does anybody know of a place to download drivers?
