I am having trouble with connecting to a n wireless network.
I have an old Netgear wireless PC Card 32-bit Cardbus WG511 adaptor.
On the back it is refered to as a class B digital apparatus.
should this work with n wireless system?
It is picking up other networks ok and the network itself is working fine

thanks for your help

check the connection once again.
turn off your firewall and antivirus and then try again.
these may be blocking the connection.

Assuming your adapter is probably Wireless B (or G and your router is not back compatable), I doubt your old card would work with a new wireless N router. If your PC is XP, there are newer Wireless N routers here on eBay. I know this is an old thread, but hope I helped!
