Have just upgraded from win 2k to win xp download the drivers for this item they installed ok and run ok but can't get it to get internet access. In win 2k (worked fine) it was set up for dial up connection so had to log in every time you started system but now in win xp I have the network symbol and the ADSL symbol displayed in the tray says its connected but have no idea how to setup for internet access seein that it requires you to apply xtra login and password. PLZ HELP!!! getting very frustrated.

I dislike those cards, but have used a couple in the past.

I would suggest removing the software, then physically removing the card from your PC. Reboot without the card in, run the installation program off the driver CD (or wherever you have the drivers). Turn PC off, install Card, reboot and hopefully all will be well.

They are weird in that they need to be uninstalled whilst plugged into your machine (ie. you will have issues if you take the card out, then try and remove the software) - and vice-versa - they need to have their software installed before you plug the card in.
