R 51 2888 will not pickup wireless signal

2009-09-24, 17:51 PM

Trying to resolve a problem on a R51 – 2888 -  NU1 formatted hard drive, loaded xp.

Tried to get my wireless working but will not respond when I push FN-F5 will not pickup on Ethernet either. However it does pickup the wireless with a  “Cisco Aironet 350 series card”

Have not had any luck in solving this problem.  Does anyone know what is wrong?
