I installed Windows 7 onto my laptop at home. The laptop is an Acer Aspire 1640 that was Vista compatible.

After the install i went through looking for all of the drivers to make things work and pretty much found everything. The only one I am missing at the moment is the driver for the Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N Notebook Adapter (WPC600N).

The problem I am having is this.. I put the card into the PCMCIA slot and the system sees the new hardware and installs default drivers. However when I go into device manager it tells me there is an error with the device. I don't recall the exact wording of the error, but it states that it is unable to assign the correct resources to the device. It's almost as if the Plug and Play feature is not doing what it should.

As a test, I took the same network card and put it into my work laptop that is also running Win. 7. It installed with generic drivers and worked perfect. So I have ruled out that card can't work with Win 7. This same card worked flawlessly in XP...

Any suggestions?
