Hello all,
I have used the site many times to find solutions but have never posted. (Long time listener, first time caller.)

I have a Medion MD 96340. It has a built in wireless card, this is a given.
OS is XP Pro. Device manager shows all devices properly installed and NO wireless card.

Please help.

Thanks,
Greg

I see a Medion website that offers little support...and indicates that the system has a native Vista O/S.

I'm curious where you obtained XP drivers.

Hi Louis.
Both the Medion site and the tools and applications DVD that came with the unit have Vista and XP drivers. After reloading Vista, and the wireless card not working with that OS either, I decided to load XP as it is much better, IMO.

Have you tried pushing the wireless button and turning your wireless card on?

The button is pictured here.

If you were any closer I'd kiss you!

Seriously, THANK YOU!

Greg

P.S. I feel like looking in the mirror and saying "duh".

I would also check the BIOS...just to ensure that it's enabled.

Follow up.
I sent an email to Medion after I made my post here. When I checked my email I had an automated response which, to my surprise, mixed in with a couple of dozen of other common problems, there was the solution.
Not bad.

Nice feature, but a pop-up window reminding that the card needs to be turned on would make it even nicer. Or the default position being the "On" position when loading the driver.

Again,
Thanks all,
Greg
