hi

using windows XP home

installed software for d-link g520+ airplus before putting the card into the PCI socket (as instructed)

software installed fine and didn't throw back any errors but windows device manager shows the device installed but with a lovely little exclamation mark next to it.

it says "device cannot start (code 10)"

i guessed this was down to the card itself being faulty, but after trying out 3 different cards and re-installing the software on numerous occasions, it is still giving me the same message

any ideas gratfully recieved :thumbsup:

thanks

This may help... http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310123#...122120121120120

Code 10
If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:
This device cannot start. (Code 10)


Recommended resolution


Device failed to start. Click Update Driver to update the drivers for this device. On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.
