OK, well I have an old 233MHz PC lying around, and wanted to make it a downloading computer, which I did. I placed my TP-Link TL-WN651G Wireless Adaptor in it from my PC as I don't use it much. Except I now have a problem, it seems its not being powered by the PC. :S

I put it in another PCI slot to no avail. I'm really confused why its not powering up - any ideas? It's not the PSU.

Hmm... Can you describe more precisely what happens? Does it not work at all? Is it recognized in the device listing the BIOS prints just before booting?

What do you mean by that?
Basically, there's no power going to it. It works in other PC's, I've tried it in other PCI slots to no avail. Again it is NOT the PSU.

When the system boots, just before passing over to the OS, it usually prints a device listing. That shows the type of device, the product and vendor ID and some other data. Is your wireless card recognized there (do you see an entry called "Network Controller" or something like that)?
