PCI Bus Mastering slot??
How can I make sure my mobo has a PCI Bus Mastering slot? I have PCI slots, but is there any way to distinguish what type they are? I am installing some a wireless adapter card and XP is not detecting it. The forum for the card said to make sure the PCI slot was a "Bus Mastering slot", so that's why I ask.
thnks in advance.

The Bus Mastering slot is usually the first or second slot (located closest to the power supply). You might also want to check and see if you have an IRQ conflict. What brand is the card you are trying to install??
It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...

Thanks allen, that helped a ton. I'm going to try it out later today when I have some time. The card is this one: http://www.linksys.com/products/prod...id=196&scid=36 (WMP11 Wireless-B PCI Adapter)

Allen, it worked! As far as my family and I are concerned you are a genius! Thanks again!
