(Code 10)" I have searched in vain to try and find some sort of fix for this but have been unsuccessful in finding anything that matches the error I'm getting. I have even updated the driver
for the Ricoh PCMCIA card manager. Any help that someone more experienced with Windows 7 can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Hello magidad, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums. We're Glad you're here!
The one critical piece of info you left out of your specs (nice job of filling that in - that is appreciated!) is whether you are using the 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows 7. It makes a difference.
As there is not yet a Windows 7 hardware compatible site to check, we rely on the Vista site. Most hardware compatible with Vista will work with 7. Look here: Windows Vista Compatibility Cisco WPC4400N Wireless-N 300Mbps Draft 802.11n PCMCIA Adapter
The Linksys WPC4400N is checked off as 32 bit compatible but not 64 bit. There are a couple of links there you can research.
The Netgear WG511 v2 appears to be compatible with both, so I would check the "manufacturer link" here: Windows Vista Compatibility Netgear NETGEAR WG511 Wireless-G PC Card - network adapter
as you should be able to find a working driver. I would suggest you start with the default Windows driver and then try the driver from the link provided. Please let us know how it goes.
