Ok I'll try it tonight. Is your card working fine on i386? And is it 
Intel WiFi Link 5300 or some other card?

That's the problem, I'm looking at them but I can't really tell the 
difference. List of files:
NETw2c32.dll NETw2r32.dll NETw5c32.dll NETw5r32.dll NETw5x32.cat 
NETw5x32.inf NETw5x32.sys dpinst32.exe iProDifX.dll iProDifX.exe 
w29n50.sys w29n51.INF w29n51.cat w29n51.sys
