I would uninstall the old drivers for this nic and any other....just for the sake of avoiding any potential conflicts (the liklihood of which is very, very small, but why not?)

I confess to total ignorance about routers (among other things). Having said that, I recently purchased a Linksys wireless card because the box said it supports Windows ME. I couldn't get the card to work at all on my laptop running Windows ME. I finally called tech support at Linksys and was told that the router worked on some ME machines but not on others.

I took the router back to the store and exchanged it for a NETGEAR. No problems - the NetGear works great.
If all else fails.......
