Wireless PC Card Malfunctioning

My father has a Compaq Evo N1020V laptop. Recently the computer was having problems connecting to the internet, I would say for the last week or so. Now, it seems as if it is dead. The wireless PC Card that is. It's a Netgear 108 Mbps Wireless PC Card WG511T. It's not letting him boot the computer with it in and enabled. The only way we can get the computer to boot is by going through safe mode and then its not the one with networking. We go in there and disable the the PC Card and reboot and it runs fine in normal mode until we try to reinstall the driver for the PC Card. Then the computer completely locks up prompting us to go into safe mode and you guessed it, disable the PC Card. The lights on the PC Card no longer cycle through, the one on the left just blinks repetitively. Thanks for your help in advance.

Never had that problem with my Netgear card (same model as yours). I suggest you uninstall the the netgear driver and configuration software, then go through the driver installation again from the netgear setup CD. If that doesn't improve matters, remove driver again and check the netgear website for a newer version of the driver/setup utility (using a different PC of course). http://kbserver.netg...ucts/WG511T.asp
