New Wifi Card & unable to put the machine on stand by

by sushil_dude / August 21, 2005 12:06 AM PDT

I recently bought the Netgear WG 511v2 wifi card for my Dell Latitude lap top with Win Xp pro operating system. Prior to this card I have used belkins and linksys cards with no problems at all. Ever since I have installed this card I continue to face problems when i try to put the laptop on stand by or shut down nothing happens, I have to hold down the power button for a few seconds to shut off the machine which is of course not the best way to work the computer. I have tried removing the wifi card restarting the machine and trying to put the laptop on stand by and all of it works just perfect. I have a feeling its got to do with the new card. ANy help will be appreciated..

I returned it for a model I know works. Driver updates didn't cure it.
