O.K. here is what I see is happening. When you put the card in it is
recognized by the computer, that is the part with the lights flashing on
and then going back off afterwards, that is perfectly normal, my
3CXE589ET (probably exactly he same card, except with X-Jack) does
exactly the same thing. Now it seems to me that your interet setup does
not see the card, or t least does not know to use the card connect to
the internet. I would check your internet connection setup to make sure
that it is set to use the card.
