    are you talking about a mobo w/integrated NIC?....the drivers should be on the mobo cd. Or are you trying a pci NIC?

    It is a Linksys PCI network adapter.
    I did add it before trying software. but windows did not recognize it. The card works. I'm using it now on this system.
    Didn't know if there was a compatibility issue or something else.

    I have a WRT54G. Thats a router??
    Network adapter could be a WMP54G??

    The router would have its own software and would not be setup through the OS.

    Drivers for that adapter, if that is correct, are here:
    Linksys by Cisco - WMP54G Support
