Hello,

I recently installed a Netgear wireless card MA311 and installed the drivers/software that was provided with the card. I now have a yellow exclamation mark on the network card, when I looked in my Device Manager Under the Resource Tab it states "This device can not find enough free resources [Code 12]". I have tried disabling a couple of other devices and restarted the PC but I have the same problem.

The operating system is Windows XP Pro version 2002 service pack 2, processor is AMD Athlon XP 1.2ghz 512ram.

I appreciate any help and thank you in advance.

According to Microsoft:

Two devices have been assigned the same I/O ports, the same interrupt, or the same Direct Memory Access channel (either by the BIOS, the operating system, or a combination of the two). This error message can also appear if the BIOS did not allocate enough resources to the device (for example, if a universal serial bus (USB) controller is not an interrupt from the BIOS because of a corrupted Multiprocessor System (MPS) table).

You can use Device Manager to determine where the conflict is and disable the conflicting device. On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.
