restarts when I close my wireless connection

I have a Compaq presario 5000, with 1.1Ghz processor and 512 ram. My Dlink Airplus Xtreme G ( DWL-G520 ) restarts my computer each time I close my wireless connection. The computer worked fine when I removed the wireless card and installed an ethernet card and hard wired it to my router. Is there a compatible internal wireless card for my computer?

Hi John,

Hum...what are the system requirements on your Dlink Airplus Xtreme G (DWL-G520)?

I had a tough time once getting a wireless card to work on an older computer. I ended up trying three different cards before I could find one that worked (which resulted in a couple returns to the store, and some restocking fees to pay).

Sorry, I don't know what the specific issue might be. Maybe someone else knows.
Eric.

Thanks Eric. Sounds like this will need a little experimentation also.
