Wireless Network Card causing problems

By tangopop ·
I have a 3 com 3crwe777a PCMCIA wireless network card installed on a Windows XP machine. However much i try i cannot find a correct driver or setup for this card. Everytime i try a new driver it tells me the 'driver may not be compatable' then once it has finish it tells me 'Hardware unable to be initalised, error code 10' Anybody have any ideas? I have tried turning off the PnP in the Bios as this was one suggestion. I have a Sony Vaio FX701

Wireless Network Card causing problems

Try here ... pick driver version 1.32 (first file)

Instructions for installing ...

1. Before updating the firmware, you must install the the WLAN driver 1.32
properly and please close your 3Com Wireless LAN Configuration Utility.

2. Unzip the all files into a new directory. The default is
C:\3Com\3CRWE777A

3. Launch the "Winpdate.exe" program from the "Firmware" directory.
If your driver is installed correctly, you will be able to see aWLAN adapter that will be shown in the "Valid Adapters" dialog
window.

4. If a WLAN adapter is found, click the "Add File" button to add
the "S10008C3.HEX" file to the window labeled "Update card with
files:" then click the "Continue" button.

5. Click the "Update" button to update the firmware to version 0.8.3.

Hope this helps.

On Sony's site, I can find no reference to the FX700 series ... the FX series only goes into the 400s ???
