I got a pinnacle showcenter 200 http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/uk/P...wCenter+200.htm

They come supplied with a wlan adapter, but you cannae use it to stream video, which is what i bought the box for....

Long story short, I got a spare wlan adapter, pcmcia that I cnat get woring anywhere else.

It identifies itself as a Broadcom 802.11g pcmcia adapter, model WPCB-104G.

i tried every variety of driver i could find using google but to no avail.

Any ideas?

I'd hate to see any bit of technology go to waste

But I aint sure what I'm looking for.

You posted the Forum Registration Info. I removed it as it's useless.

I need the NERD (the main, the big one) logfile. Try to ZIP it and attach it.

The log shows that no device is physically present for Windows XP:

--Bus 3 (CardBus)

|-- No Devices Currently Present

--Bus 4 (CardBus)

|-- No Devices Currently Present

The device isn't even initialized by XP?! Means either you haven't plugged in the PCMCIA card, or you need to turn 'on' the device (is there a switch?), or it's defect/broken. If there's switch, then turn it on and run the NERD again.

When/how did it identify as Broadcom/WPCB-104G device?

"When/how did it identify as Broadcom/WPCB-104G device?"

It says its a broadcom adapter, that windows can't find drivers for, when you plug it in.

The WPCB bit is the serial on the back.

I just tried the nerd again and got the same results

If the device is somehow recognized by XP ("It identifies itself as a Broadcom 802.11g pcmcia adapter") the next step would be to find out the device ID, which can be done be opening the device manager, browse to the device and open up the details page.

This .REG file could be of help in case the device isn't listed (it shows Phantom Devices).

Knowing the DEV ID can be of great help using Google.
