Been a while since I worked on win2k......if I am not mistaken all local area connections refer to wired connections. Wireless connections should show up as such in network connections. Also when you do ipconfig you should see it as a wireless connection not a local. Thus leads me to believe the card did not install properly or the driver is corrupted. Is the device visible in the device manager???
