  • Wireless card on Laptop problem

    Im trying to connect a wireless network card to my laptop.
    I have bought a Binatone WL1000 network card and have installed the drivers and utility onto my Compaq laptop running win2k.
    All works well on the administrator account, but when I log on as a regular user it tells me the card is not present - even though it still appears in the device list and shows as working correctly.
    I have tried a USB nic and get a similar problem (tells me that the drivers dont exist) and again in the device list all is well.
    Im assuming that there is a config problem somewhere that I need to fix
    Has anyone any ideas?

      Its my work laptop - the user account has dialup network and lan permissions on the built in modem & RJ45 port.
      Is there something else I should be looking at?

          Ok - I know how to run GPEDIT.MSC

          Can someone be a little more specific about what I would need to change ?

          Sorry to be a little dim, but windows 2000 is a little new to me.
