I temporarily removed my network adapter card and after I reinstalled it, the Add New Hardware wizard starts. I cancelled that and the driver appeared in Device Manager and the network works fine. Every time I start Windows, the New Hardware wizard starts, but there does not seem to be any way to tell it that the hardware is already installed. How can I turn it off??
I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 and the network card is a CNET PRO200WL PCI.
Thanks for any assistance.

Hi,

Do you get a device appearing in device manager with a yellow exclamation mark? if so just disbale it. If not go through the install procedure (presuming it won't find a driver) and then at the end you can select not to try installing again.

Hope this helps

I found the place to select not to try again, so I checked it.
