    Default PCI Wireless card stalled boot up

    I built this new desktop in my sig. Everything runs fine in Winxp SP2, Linux Debian 5.0.2 64 bit.

    When I put in my wireless pci card, Netgear WG311T, both winxp and Debian linux cannot boot. I have tried loading Optimized Default @2.66 GHz with pci frequency set to 100, or my normal overclocked setup with pci frequeny at 101. I have tried it in Bios F5 and now F6, do not boot. This Netgear wireless card works fine on my older desktop (DFI motherboard and winxp, linux dual boot).

    I also put it in different pci slots, and it posts with IRQ 5 for Gigabyte lan controller and IRQ 10 for Netgear wireless card, so there is no IRQ conflict.

    Please help. Thanks.

    Do you have a linux live CD of some flavor? If so try and boot into it...

    edit: oh does it install and work in XP?

    No, it does not boot in xp, nor linux. Both os stalled in boot. Both OS's boot and work fine without the pci wireless card. I do not have Linux Live CD.

    A google says in the maunal to install the network drivers before you install the card. It is also said that you will have to uninstall the drivers and then remove the card before a new installation attempt. I'd try to get it working in Windows 1st. I can give you Linux hints also on it.

    Thanks. I have tried many times to put driver in first before the card in windows 7 RC, but never worked, although it never stalled on boot. So, I swicthed to winxp in hope that it will work. I do not remember if I install driver in winxp first. I am away until until next week. I'll try it when I get home. I know how to install it in linux with madwifi (I actually have it working in my DFI AMD64 desktop), but did not think of doing it before putting the card in. I'll try it again when I get home.

    Might also try updating your chipset drivers as well as graphics drivers.

    At which point does the boot fail? Does it pass the POST then hang? Does it not POST at all? Or does it freeze/crash half way through loading?

    Have you tried booting Windows insafe mode? If Linux has a similar option, try that too. This may help you better identify any problems such as IRQ conflicts

    @Conners: I have not thought about updating chipset driver, since this board is so new, but I'll try it and report back.

    @Psyco101: it posts both in winxp and linux. Winxp was running, windows green bar was running for a few times, and then it hanged. In linux, it hanged at the point of trying to get all the /dev (do not remember exactly the wording.)
