Can i use a Cisco mini-pci wlan adapter in a laptop?

I rescued an AIR-MP21G-E-K9 mini-pci wlan module from its way to the recycler, and tried to install it in an old Toshiba laptop that I am preparing for use in an african school.

XP recognised a "pci device" but could not find drivers on its own. Any chance that i get this working?

I have used the AIR-MP20 11b mini-pci adapter in a couple of Dell Latitude C610 and that worked fine. The drivers used were for the Aironet 350 adapters.

Try to download some of the Cisco pc-card or pci adapters and just try if any works for you.

I'm sorry that i have to report that i did nog get this mini-pci card to work. I tried several aironet drivers (340, 350) and they all report that they could not start the adapter.
