AX6BC and Netgear WG311 won't boot

    I have an older pc that I'm trying to put a wireless NIC in (Netgear
    WG311), but the system will not boot with it in. I have the latest
    BIOS (2.59), but still no go. I have a PCI ATI RageIIC Video Card in
    PCI slot 1, the Wireless NIC in slot 3 and an ISA Sound card in the
    single ISA slot at the bottom. Everything works great when the card
    is not in there, but no matter which PCI slot I use, I get nothing.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe the Nic is bad.

    I have three and I've tried them all. None seem to work.

  4. Dave,

    I wish I could provide a solution, but...

    We had a similar problem with D-Link's DWL-520+ and an AP5VM.
    Two different cards, both of which worked in other systems.
    The system just would not boot/POST with the card installed.
    We finally worked around the issue with a regular 10/100 NIC
    and an external D-Link DWL-810+ Ethernet to Wireless Bridge.

    I have the same problem with an AX63 and SMC2802W PCI card (54MBit/s
    IEEE802.11g). Newest BIOS revision, but no beep code or BIOS message, even
    when there's no graphics card in the AGP slot.
    SMC's support told me there's an incompatibility with the 3.3V PCI Bus.
    I read something about blocking pin A14 on the PCI card on Aopen's web page.
    Can anyone tell me where to find pin A14?
