Hello, when I install the new driver for my wireless network card it
can't find the card. I sure I installed it right, first I uninstalled
the old one and then removed the card, installed the new driver and
inserted the card. I've also tried it on another computer with the same
card and I couldn't find the card

It's a SMC smcwpci-g eu, part no. 98-012084-556. My OS is windows xp
pro.

That's the one they told me to install.

Why wont it find my netwok card? The old drivers dosn't have any
problems finding it.

..zip? Did you unzip the file and then run the install file?

Hi,

I had some problem with SMC smcwpci-g eu, part no. 98-012084-556 and driver sw downloaded from SMC site.

Problem resolved when I downloaded and installed this Realtek driver


http://www.station-drivers.com/telechargement/realtek/Realtek_RTL8185_Windows_6.1102.0702.2007,UI_1.00.0006.exe

Ok. In Hardware MAnager , network cards section appears as Realtek 8185 54M Wireless LAn Adapter but it's working fine.

Best regards
