    I have a new Dell XPS 420 with Vista Home Premium, I am trying t
    install a Pcmcia card drive into a pci slot so i can use my PC574
    verizon wireless broadband card in for my internet connection
    Currently I use this card in my laptop for internet connection
    which is Verizon broadband..
    Laptop has XP and Vista on new deskto
    I installed software that came with drive, added Visa driver file
    installed Verizon Access Manager with Vista driver,
    Control shows drive, but when I slide in pc 5740 card, monitor goes t
    blue or black and says Windows encountered a problem and is shuttin
    down,,,first it trys to repair then it can't repair so it shuts down...
    Before you ask,,,broadband is the only option I have other than dialu
    or satelite.....any suggestions pleas

    Could you get a USB modem from Verizon
    http://news.vzw.com/news/2007/02/pr2007-02-01c.html ? Other option would be
    network from laptop to desktop & share wireless access. What type of adapter
    are you using to interface PCMCIA cart to desktop ?
