Geforce fx5500 help

Hi I just bought a Geforce FX5500 DDR 128 MB AGP card
When I put this card into my compaq presario S5200CL which has a wireless network the card is a microsoft MN-730 adapter. I am using windows XP home edition.

It loses signal totaly so you cannot connect to the internet what so ever. Does the video card put out some sort of interferance that would mess up my wireless card with some sort of radio signal?

You accidently misadjusted your network card when you were installing your video card. Double check to see if both cards are secured, and post up any more problems you might have....

Peace Out...
