My laptop uses a Cisco radio card and a Linksys WRT54G router.
I can see the wireless networks but cannot connect with windows or the Linksys program, which I normally use.
When I ran the trouble shooting program for the Cisco radio card and I got this message.

"Use Network Icon in System Preferences application to set network configuration for your client adapter".

I also ran the windows network repair and it turned off the radio card.

I try to turn the radio card back on or find these "System Preferences" my computer locks up and I get the blue screen.
I think I've really messed up my laptop and not sure where to go from here.
Would be grateful for any ideas.

Sounds like a driver issue. Update the driver from Cisco's website.

I tried to go online to update my radio card driver and I can't get online by lan either.
I tried to run the repair program for the lan and I get a "renewing IP address" to correct the problem.
Then I get a message that it cannot be renewed and there may be a problem with the network.
I ran windows repair program for the wifi connection also and it turned off my radio card and I can't turn it back on.
I tried to rollback to a previous driver and now it says I have no drivers installed for the radio card.
I also tried to uninstall the radio card and then I was going to reinstall it and see if windows detected and updated the drivers but Device Manager program does not respond when I select uninstall.
I believe I have several issues from me messing around trying different fixes so I attempted to run the Restore program and could only go back to April 1st and I still can't get a connection.
