    Note: I ment Inspiron, but I can't edit the title.

    Hello people,

    I got a problem with my wireless network card for the PCI slot. (On my Dell Inspiron 545.)

    I didn't have troubles on my Windows XP PC with
    Sweex LW 142 Lan Card, (I think that's because I can't find good drivers).

    So I bought another network card:

    Linksys WMP54G.

    Does anyone know what I have to do now? Since I'd hear my Linksys doesn't work on Windows 7 yet, but I can't find the drivers for Sweex.

    So: The problem: The Sweex driver(/software) doesn't work on Windows 7(/Dell Inspiron 545), it starts after I'd install it, the pc regonizes the LW142, but the driver(/software) doesn't do something.

    The Linksys gives an 'Windows can't update your drivers (error 31)'.


    Please help me out.

    ~Tom.
