    To disable network MB adapter or not ?

    A friend brought over a Dell B110 desktop and I have to use my wireless and he only has a hard-wired MB plug in.
    That said, I install a add PCI wireless card and was successful install but it just keeps looping back into a endless boot loop. I pull the card and it has a normal boot-up !!

    I haven't tried to disable the MB internet adapter in BIOS yet ------ would this be the next step ??

    Suggestions !!

    Sounds like incorrect drivers to me. Did it ever boot successfully with card and drivers in place? Without the card in, drivers don't activate. I've done that before, quick blue screen and reboots.

    No. The internal NIC would have no effect.

    As FUN said, check the drivers. See if you can download a current set from the vendor.
