Threaded View

It has the BroadCom PCI-e card and doesn't show in the Device Mgr. as

Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.

What OS are you running there Bob? If you are running Windows, I suppose
you tried to use detect new hardware, eh? Sometimes Windows can get
broken. So you have at least two options to try.

1) Reinstall Windows

2) Run Linux Ubuntu Live version from a CD and see if the wireless is

If neither one of these works, it sure sounds like a bad wireless card
to me. They do go bad sometimes.
