I found something on my computer called CNet PCMCIA Wireless LAN CE and i don't think that it is essential in running my computer. All of my wireless stuff is 2Wire and i have heard that CNet distributes shareware. Just wondering has anybody encountered this before? :scratch:

not sure if you still have this problem but just try deleting it and seeing if everything still works

Hey Jamesilious

That's some pretty bad advice.

There are thousands of files in any operating system and configuration of processes, devices, add-ons and application software, that are often quite difficult to figure out just by looking at the file name. "Deleting" an unknown file, just to see if everything still works is a ridiculously hazardous strategy. Renaming or Moving could be a little less risky, but in such instances the owner/user should actually research to determine the identity, source and purpose of a file, before ever considering taking any action.
