For several days my wireless connection has been connecting and disconnecting. Today I tried connecting to wireless and cannot actively see any wireless networks available. My wireless switch is on and is showing a blue light and Network Adapters in Device Manager show no warnings however when I run diagnose in Network Sharing Centre it tells me that Network Adapter "Wireless Networks Connection" is not connected.

The Wireless Router is fine and another laptop and iPad seem to have no problems connecting to it please could you advise?

I am running Windows Vista on a Vaio VGN FE41S

Many thanks,

J. Smith

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.
please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and if you have a separate modem, the make and exact model of the modem.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG etc

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Mine is Dell Inspiron 3537, Os: Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My laptop wifi works fine for some period of time, but suddenly the current wireless connection gets disconnected and no wireless networks appear in the list. The network connection icon in taskbar changes to no network connection (small monitor with yellow exclamation icon). The wireless adapter is still enabled only.
Well i found a way to bring back the connection and to show the available wireless networks by disabling and enabling the dell wireless adapter under "change adapter settings" in Network and sharing center. But this problem keeps repeating at unpredictable intervals and i have to disable and enable the wireless adapter everytime!. Please help me with a solution.
I have already tried the following,
1. Re-installing,updating wireless network drivers.
2. Re-installing entire OS with full format of all hard drives.
3. Disabled (unchecked) "allow computer to turn off this device to save power" option under power management tab of dell wireless adapter properties.
4. Changed the power saving options for wireless adapter to "maximise perfomance" for both on battery and plugged in modes.
Having tried all these still no luck, the problem persists. I borrowed a digisol wireless USB adapter from my friend. this works fine all the time with no issues.
I have no idea why mine is not working properly. please do help.

My internet had stopped working for some reason, so I decided to re-install the wireless network adapter, because it usually makes the internet work again.

So I deleted the wireless network adapter, and then I tried clicking "Scan for hardware changes", but the network adapter doesnt install. So its gone now, which is why internet just isnt working. How can I get it back?

A:Wireless network adapter problem


If you can connect your computer to your router with the ethernet cable. That can get you on the internet.

Then with the name of your wireless adapter you can search for your wireless adapter driver.

What you could do before doing the above is to restart your computer again it should recognize that there is a hardware change and install the required driver itself or prompt you for the driver by stepping through a on screen instructions.

Follow the instruction for checking online.

See how you go with the above steps, and let us know.

I have a problem with wireless usb network adapter(Tenda W541U) and therefore I can not connect to the internet. In network and sharing center adapter is listed as disabled but when I try to enable it says "Enabling... then Enabled" but actually after that it is still listed as disabled. It is enabled in Device manager, I also reinstalled the drivers but problem is still there. I'm 100% sure that there is nothing wrong with wireless adapter, I tested it on another computer and it works perfectly. I suppose there is something corrupted in registry cause yesterday it worked and today when I turned on the computer it didn't work anymore. Operating system is Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.

A friend of mine brought his IBM Think Pad T20 over because he just got this new Linksys Wireless Network Adapter and he cant get it to work. He installed the software for it and when he inserted the wireless card his whole computer froze up. As soon as he pulls it out, his computer works just fine. But every time he inserts it, it freezes. I went to the linksys website for tech support and the only option they have to help you with this perticular product is if you are actually on the computer with the card in. But as soon as he inserts it he cant do anything let alone get online.
Anybody have any idea's, please let me know.

Thanks A lot!

Hi there..

So I have recently bought a new wireless network adapter for my computer as having a long ethernet cable running around the house has become troublesome. I went to install it however when I put it into the computer windows will not detect the adapter. I have tried to install it through the software that comes with the adapter but that is unable to detect the adapter either. I have been able to install it on other computers but have had no luck with my pc.

The Adapter is:
TP-Link N600 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter

My PC specs are:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 980 @ 3.33GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 44 Stepping 2
Processor Count: 12
RAM: 12279 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti, -2048 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 121301 MB, Free - 67667 MB; D: Total - 953516 MB, Free - 574309 MB;
Motherboard: EVGA, EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI

A:Wireless network adapter problem

Download the manual and go to P.57. Check the BIOS and ensure the PCI-e x1 slot is enabled, if you're using that for the card. If it is set properly, go to P.35. This will show you how to check the PCIe jumper to ensure the slot you're trying to use isn't disabled.

Hi, i'm new here. I bought a LINKSYS Wireless G Router and a wireless G pci adapter for my two computers. I had already had everything up and working for about 6 months. Then, about 2 days ago i formatted my hard drive on the computer with the network adapter in it. After I got everything running properly and all my drivers and everything installed, i popped in the cd for the network adapter to set it up. Problem is, is that it won't load it. For like a split second a blue screen comes up then disapears. I tried manually starting it by going into the C drive and opening it from there, still won't load. I know nothing is wrong with my computer because every other cd i put in it works fine. I put this cd in my other computer and it wouldn't load on there either, did the same thing. I have a Dell and i had technical support help me format my computer and we went to install everything i needed. We tried to install the network adapter, but couldnt figure out why it wasnt loading. Dell told me the cd was bad. I called LINKSYS and they told me it was a bad CD too and i should go on their website and download the drivers. The guy was a little unclear and didn't seem to want to help me, and i did go on the site and downloaded the drivers. But to install them u need the cd, and i don't have that! So i'm right back where i started.

Can anyone help me on this one? Thanx.

A:Problem with wireless PCI network adapter CD

You can install Linksys adapter drivers without the CD. Go to their web site and pick your adapter.

I saw another post that had the exact same problem I'm having, just that my problem is on a desktop. We got wireless internet a few months ago and my desktop was working fine with it. Have a wireless adapter for the internet. Then a few weeks ago the internet started randomly disconnecting from only my computer. I thought it was a network problem. But then I hit something and the internet was working fine again for a few weeks. Now it's on the fritz again starting yesterday.

When I try disconnecting and then reconnecting to the network, it will tell me that there were no networks to connect to. And when I unplug the adapter and plug it back in to the usb ports, it'll tell me that my computer can't recognize the adapter, that it's malfunctioning. I've tried the adapter in all the ports and it gives me the same message. I have to restart my computer to get it to both recognize the adapter and the network so it'll connect again once it's restarted. The internet will last for random periods of time. When the internet goes out, I get the yellow triangle error thing first on the network icon, it doesn't just go right to there being nothing period and having the X symbol, only after I try disconnecting from the network. Sometimes all day then I'll leave the computer on over night and find the internet is out again on it in the morning. Or it'll last for only a few minutes. Sometimes the computer won't lose the network if ... Read more

So recently I have removed a nasty zeroaccess rootkit virus(es) from my laptop. My Windows Firewall, Defender and Updates would not work (still won't), my browser kept redirecting to unrelated websites, and I was just overall having a TON of irritating issues. I installed MalwareBytes and Zone Alarm in addition to my Microsoft Security Essentials and restarted my computer once - everything seemed fine. I went to delete a few programs from my computer via the control panel, just unneeded things like Canon software I don't even use anymore. My computer told me I needed to restart so I did, and when it turned back on, I suddenly had no more Internet access.

It registers that my Internet providers are being picked up on (as in, it says Silver Moose is emitting a signal yet I have "limited access") and all other devices using the network in my home are working just fine. I tried troubleshooting and it says that there are problems with the wireless network adapter and the driver for wireless network connection adapter.

I've read that removing a 0access will render someone Internet-less but some people have overcome this. However, every thread I've already taken a look at don't exactly fit with my problems/computer model, so I wanted to stay on the safe side and get help fitted exactly to me. I have Windows 7 64 bit., a Gateway model NV78. I don't know if my processor/Intel(R) Core details are needed. If so, I'll gladly provide them.

A:Problems with wireless network adapter and network connection driver

First with this remove Zone alarm, while it use to be a great product, it cause more issues than it's worth these days.
Next, Start menu-> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on command prompt and run as Administrator.

Type in netsh winsock reset and reboot, see if the combination of these will help.

Otherwise, system restore is very simple to use and will only affect programs installed, not your personal files. If this doesn't solve the issue pick a time before the rootkit, a couple weeks if possible, and just restore it. You can scroll through all the date to make note of any changes that will be made. Make sure to re-install your AV and Malwarebytes afterwards to keep you protected.

Also, I do not work for Malwarebytes, but $29 for a lifetime license and an active protection module is absolutely worth it.

Hi All

Please can anyone help??!! I have done something and I don't know what!

I have just bought a new computer, a compaq, running windows 7, AMD athlon (tm)IIx2 245 processor, I had no problems connecting it to the internet, it has a wired ethernet cable which plugged to my Thompson router and worked straight away. I also have a Toshiba satellite L350-170 laptop (running Vista) with wireless internet connection. At this stage I was getting internet on my new PC and wireless internet on the laptop.
The problem came when I tried to set up a home network, I have done it previously (on the old pc running Windows XP) with no problems, however I am not sure what I have done, but I can get internet on the PC but on the laptop it is connecting to the wireless network but not the internet.
In the network and sharing centre it shows the laptop connected to an Unidentified network but then there is a cross through the line connecting it to the internet. In Network and Internet, Network connections I double clicked on Wireless Network Connection and then on diagnose, I got a box with the heading - 'The network adapter "Wireless Network Connection" does not have a valid IP Configeration.

I am a bit bewildered what to do, and thought it better to seek help rather than fumble around in the dark!!
Hope someone can help

The wireless router is a Belkin. Like I said, all the others on the network use axactly the same settings and work, without a problem. Is the problem maybe in the Bios setting or where can I look for the fault?


A:Connected to wireless network with local acces

For some time I've been running a home network of 2 PCs and a laptop using a wireless setup. All PCs are running XP Pro. The configuration was that one PC (call it A) was connected to the Internet via a USB Sagem ADSL modem and the others (B & C) connected wirelessly via that PC.

I'm now moving to a wired system using a NetGear router/modem. The router has attached to the Internet with no problem and both B and C machines work fine with it. However, machine A, that I used originally with the modem, won't connect.

So far I've removed old modem software and disabled/uninstalled the USB WAN adapter. I've checked the cable from the PC to the router and that's fine. I've reinstalled the ethernet driver. The PC tells me that the ethernet port is fine and working. The light on the router indicates the PC is connected. They just don't seem to be talking to each other.

I performed a scan on the network and it shows that the network adapter status as FAILED - by virtue of both the Ethernet connection and a "Instant Wireless USB Adapter" both coming up as FAILED. It seems to be that both are failing in looking at - the default Internet IP address. However, I've removed (as far as I can see) the wireless device and any software reference to it. I'm guessing that there's some kind of contention going on but I can't see any way of removing the "Instant Wireless USB Adapter" in order to test o... Read more

A:Wireless to Wired - Network Adapter problem

Hi there - my wireless adapter seems like its dead.

My laptop isn't detecting it and I cannot connect to wireless networks. The light to indicate if the wireless is on or not, is showing orange (off) instead of blue (on), when in fact the switch is in the 'on' position.

I've tried installing the broadcom driver again, but it didn't help. I'm just about to call up HP to have it serviced, unless anyone has any suggestions?

What really gets to me, is that my laptop is just about 1 and a 1/2 years old and this is the second time this exact same problem has occurred. Last time this happened, it was almost at the end of the warranty and I was able to have it repaired under the warranty. Now, I'm guessing I'll have to pay for the repair - the warranty is finished.
This second problem has occurred during a SHORTER time span - in about 4-5 months! Last time, HP's affiliates who repaired it, said the problem was the motherboard, so the motherboard was replaced (or was it just repaired?)

So I'm out of ideas. I don't even use the wireless much. Most of the time I'm connected to the internet via ethernet. What actually causes this problem?
Does anyone know how much having this repaired or having the wireless adapter or motherboard replaced would cost?

My laptop is a Compaq V3118au in case anyone's interested lol.

Sorry for my essay

Thanks for your help

A:Problem with broadcom wireless network adapter

i know this problem. first, try to update your BIOS. if this will helps so, the problem disappeared.
second problem connected with southbridge chip(mini-PCI-express is bus which connected directly to southbridge)
third. i recommend to sell this laptop. this platform has VERY BAD QUALITY of motherboard and has development errors(lack of northbridge and videochip heatsink). HP tried to fix this problem with new BIOS in which they changed passive thermal cooling temperature, but this is not right way.
and fourth try to replace the Wi-Fi adapter.

Our internet service provider updated our internet speed from 100mbps to 1000mbps for no extra cost. We had a Netgear n150 wireless router but it wouldn't support the 1000mbps speed. We were told we needed to upgrade to a r6300 netgear router which is capable of 1000mbps. Now were are told we need to install an ethernet PCI network card or a network adapter. I am told we have to have a 2.0 port for the network adapter to work. It would be cheaper for us to install the internal Ethernet PCI Card, my problem is I don't know which one to buy. I know we need one that is rated 1000mbps, are these universal or will we have to buy one that fits each brand of computer?

Hello i'm to this forum,

Normally i try to solve computer problems myself, but after spending 3 days looking on forums and trying 'solutions' i finally give up and ask help on this forum.

For the last days my computere refuses to connect with my wireless internet.
I tried to find the problem with troubleshooting, but every time i finally manage to solve a problem a new one would arise. All the devices at my home can connect with the network except my computer.

My computer tries to connect with the wireless network. It says it is connected to the network but doesn't have internet acces, it also says it is a unidentified network. Troubleshooting found these 2 problems:
-problem with wireless adapter or access point
-wireless network connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration

Ipconfig shows that there is not a standardgateway (it's empty)
The things i tried are:
-uninstalling and reinstalling the networkaddaptor
-system restore to a date before i had problems with the internet connection
-ipconfig/release and then ipconfig/renew
-turning of all computers and the modem, and then starting up the modem and the computers one at a time
-netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
and a few others that i cant remember anymore.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello everyone. As you can see today when I got on my laptop I wasn't able to connect to the Internet and after attempting to troubleshoot I got this error message along with one saying a network cable is not properly plugged in or is broken. We recently switched Internet service providers and the Internet has been running fine. The only proble I had was sometimes it would randomly drop in speed but I don't think that has anything to do with the issue. Last night it was working perfectly, but then it went slow so I unplugged our router and then disabled the wireless network then reeanbled it. Anyways I've been using this network for a few months now without issues but I think the issue lies within my computer. I checked for windows updates and installed them but no luck. Then I checked for driver updates for my adapters but they were up to date. I don't have any screenshots and I'm on a tablet. Also please use the simplest terms possible because while I have a basic understanding of these things, I'm no expert and I don't want to miss anything. Also I have Nortan Antivirus and it hasn't given me any problems. Thanks.

Hey guys, I have just received an older PC, the low profile Dell Optiplex GX150. I freshly installed Windows XP with Service Pack 3, and installed my new Belkin N600 Wireless USB adapter. It appears to have installed correctly, however I am having trouble connecting to my network. When I search for available networks, my network is shown. When attempting to connect, the screen gets stuck on "Acquiring Network Address", and after a few minutes the window closes without connecting. My wireless network is encrypted with WPA Personal and "TKIP or AES", and these settings are correct under the network settings in Windows. I know this computer has networking capabilities, because I am currently sharing my Laptops wireless access with an ethernet cable via a workgroup. I am having no trouble whatsoever connecting via the cable (I am currently using PC with issue to type this). I'm sure the adapter is windows XP compatible because the Box the adapter came in states Windows XP with Service Pack 3 is compatible. I've tried a lot of advise from other posts on various forums and still nothing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

What's the "service tag" number and/or "express service code" number on that Dell OptiPlex GX150?


That Dell comes with an Intel Pentium III processor and supports a maximum of 512 MB(256 MB X 2) of PC133 RAM.

Yours has only 256 MB of RAM, so it's not going to run like a turtle. It's going to run like a snail or bog down.

It has only a 20 GB hard drive with an actual capacity of 19.12 GB, so it's not going to take it long to run out of free space.

That Dell is a "dinosaur" and isn't worth spending money on.


Have you installed the driver software for that Belkin N600 USB wireless adapter?

Hi! First of all, I'm sorry if my English is bad. My laptop is running on Windows 8.1 Single Language. I just bought this about a month ago and I'm having this weird problem.

Cases that my network adapter connects to my computer:
1.) After restart
2.) When the network adapter successfully starts and then shut the computer down then start it again

Cases that my network adapter does not connect to my computer:
1.) Turning the computer on after a few hours from the last shutdown

I have done the following things:
1.) Update the driver
2.) Not allowing the computer to turn off the network adapter
3.) Uninstall and reinstall network adapter
4.) Release and renew IPv4 address
5.) Disable Proset services
6.) Disable Bluetooth driver and services
7.) Set WLAN AutoConfig to automatically start

Is this a hardware related problem or a driver problem? Do you know how to fix this?

I have never come across such a waste notebook and terrible customer assistance. I bought this G50-70 Ideapad notebook owing to my previous good experience with ThinkPad notebook. but I never expected this is such worse. first and foremost my keypad has gone within 2 days. then DVD drive was stuck. thereafter back cover broken and detached. all I suffered and made all the fix with extra cost. after one year the HDD starts making the noise like those I PCs of the 1990s.
now after upgrading to win 10 the trouble again increased. I have never connected to any wifi without keep trying trying trying for more than 15-20 minutes. if this network adapter is not compatible win 10 then why Lenovo allows upgradations to 10. I'm now in my office. very near to my router. the laptop shows all the wifi networks even in the coffee shop away. but not my nearby router. by fortune, if it shows and I try to connect it shows "can't connect to this network" well known and the adapter turns off for a while. what is happening to a well-known company like this? I have uninstalled the driver, reinstalled new from Lenovo site.still the same. the comedy is that Lenovo site provided intel drive for wifi for my laptop. when I extract and install it shows not compatible. nothing to do but I'm laughing, I wish to break away this notebook before any Lenovo shop. unfortunately, im not getting that also. Guys, if any of you come across this problem, please help me ...

I recently purchased an Xbox live for my son to use. We have two newer Dell computers on our network and sharing a cable connection. How do I add the Wireless G Linksys Game adapter? I put it to my son's computer in his room-hooked to his RJ-45 on his computer console. When I go back to my computer to set it up, it cannot be found. The main cable connection is on my computer as is the Linksys G woreless router. He already has an antenna-G device hooked to his computer to share the broadband. What am I doing wrong?

I have an acer aspire 4530 using windows 7 and from a week ago Im having problems with the Atheros AR5B91 Wireles Network Adapter. It detects my network with an average signal, but when I try to connect, an error message is displayed saying that It was unable to connect. I tried almost everything: reinstalled the adapter, updated to the newest driver from: http://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php?chipset=28&system=5
I can connect to the network via ethernet cable; and also I have another laptop and it gets connected to the same network via wifi without problem. Im starting to think it could be a hardware issue, but it that were true I think the computer wouldnt detect the wireless adapter.
If someone could help me I would aprecciate it.
BTW: forgive my english.

I would really appreciate some help on this, I have looked EVERYWHERE, even these forums, and every topic i find has many ideas but none seem to work. Of course I will try them all again if needed and recommended.

Anyway here is what it is...

I have very inconsistent access to the internet through my main computer. I had added new computer to the network a long time ago and they both worked fine for a long time. When i added a third however this problem began, (Im not sure if that is the cause, becuase it hasnt even been connected to the network for the majority of the time ive had the problem, its been in a corner because of monitor issues)

Sometimes the internet works (not on main comp now) other tiems it doesnt, when it does it seems slower than it should.

I can't see any network places of other computers from main comp, and repairing the connection gives the problem, task can't be completed : clearing NetBT.

Other computer does not have this problem at all, and has reliable internet access, and can see network places.

I have tried alot of things, would be happy for help please.
EDIT: All comps on XP
Can't ping other machines.
Networked through router
Thanks in advance

A:Clearing NetBT, Network places internet acces, (one problem 3 issues I believe)

Is the router assigning IP's? You say you can't ping other machines, can you ping the router? If you can ping the router, and if the router is providing IP's, open a command prompt at each machine and type "ipconfig /release & ipconfig /flushdns & ipconfig /registerdns & ipconfig /renew".

I'm not totally computer-literate when it comes to hardware and such, but I am fairly literate with most computer terms. So in advance, I apologize for any confusion a misused hardware name may cause.

Also, before I begin, let me just say that the issues hereafter discussed apply to a computer separate from this one. This computer works fine, but the one I will be talking about, my computer, is the one without an internet connection at the moment.

So recently, my network adapter decided to stop working. I won't go into the details, but it's completely fried, and I'd much rather spend the money to get a new one instead of go through the hassel of trying to fix my old one. And thus we come to question number one:

Do most (if not all) network adapter cards work with most PCs? I have a Dell Dimension 4500 with Windows XP Home edition with highspeed cable internet, so would pretty much any network adapter do the job? My stepdad, who is fairly computer-literate (though often too cocky about it) says that pretty much all network adapters will work with any computer, unless the computer and network adapter are old or new, respectively. Also, what are the most reliable brands of network adapters? What kind of details about the product should I look for when purchasing?

Now on to the second part of my post: wireless internet adapter. For a while, my computer has been a few feet from the router because we had/have no way for a cord to reach anywhere else, particu... Read more

I have been experiencing wireless wifi connection problems with my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. I am running xppro (I went from vista to xp pro..took a long time as I am slow) Anyway, I read that you can add another wireless network card as a work around, in the event that the internal wireless card breaks/dies.

I bought a BelkinWirelss G USB network adapter- F5D7050 and tried to install it on this laptop. I was able to install it on my IBM T23 and Gateway laptop. I had to disable the radio on the gateway before it worked. The IBM is old and has no built in wireless card. ON my HP pavilion dv6000, I slid the wireless button to disable and also went into device manager and disable there too.

For some reason after loading the Belkin in, it does not find any wireless networks. I called Belkin and spoke with their help desk but they were not helpful. My question, short of disabling my HP wireless card, do I have to remove the actual software (uninstall broadcom ) so the computer will look only at the belkin software?

My HP laptop, warrantied expired 2 months ago. Any help would be appreciated..

Hey guys, need some urgent help here.

I have a program on my computer called Intel(R) My WiFi Technology, which has something to do with my network adapter (Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN). I recently had an annoying notice popping up from this program saying 'The Wireless Network Adaptoor could not be found'. So I decided that I should find a solution on Intel's forums. I came across a thread that discussed my problem, and one of the Intel workers mentioned that Uninstalling and Reinstalling the program would be the best solution. So I followed the steps and came across a huge problem . Turns out that once I removed this program, my computer wouldn't connect to my wireless network in my house. I went onto my other devices throughout the home and they all seemed to be working fine, and that my router was still working fine aswell. I went onto my other computer and downloaded the program onto my USB, and installed it back onto my original computer. There still wasn't any difference, and my computer still currently can't connect to my wireless access point. I've rolled back drivers, updated them, and I've refreshed wireless network adapters in my Network and Sharing Center in Control Point. I'm starting to run out of ideas, and I really need some help. My computer can still detect networks though, but I've discovered it can connect to my Mobile Phone's Access Point, meaning I can connect to 3G through my phone. I'm sus... Read more

Hi. I have an IBM T40 Thinkpad laptop running Windows XP with CISCO Aironet Client Utility installed to manage my wireless networks. I don't understand the point of this utility as I find the Windows XP wireless connection management more reliable and straightforward, but I don't know how to disable this thing. I would if I could and I have tried, although not that hard.

Anyway, I was using the CISO Aironet Client Utility (or whatever it's called) fine, then I visited a friend's house and needed to get on his network. He started poking around and one day it was working and the next it was broken. It kept saying it couldn't find a radio signal or that it was off. I came home and it wasn't working for a month or so.

One day, I messed around with it and it started working again. Only problem now is whenever I shut down my laptop and re-open it, it never reconnects to my wireless connection automatically. I always have to do it by hand.

Any suggestions here? How can I get it to reconnect automatically and if I can't, how can I get it to use the Windows wireless features that are built in and bypass this CISCO stuff?

Hello TSG Forums,

I've got quite the challenge for you guys. I've gone through two different tech support lines, three computer savvy friends, and every troubleshooting trick and tip I could scour off of the internet. All efforts have been in vain thus far. So as to not make this post too long, I'll get to the point.

I recently bought a new wireless adapter to connect to the internet with. Previously I was using an older adapter that my room mate was lending me. ( a Motorola Wireless USB Adapter WU830G to be exact.) At first when I installed the motorola it didn't work. I can't remember what I did to make it work for the life of me, but I eventually twisted my computer's arm enough that it gave in. Now it's uninstalled from my computer, along with (I hope) all the drivers and programs that were using it.

So I bought a new adapter (Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO USB Network Adapter - F5D9050) read the instructions carefully, and made sure that it was installed just as the manual says. (Install the software, wait for the prompt, etc etc.) Everything seemed to be going smoothly until I tried to configure my connections. (Where the wireless detects all the access points, and you put in your WEP key etc.) The wireless adapter seemed to be doing nothing. The device manager showed the adapter with no problems, and no errors, but the program was stubbornly pretending that my wireless adapter didn't exist. After trying multiple USB ports, uninst...

Hi everyone: Iím having an extremely frustrating problem connecting to my Netgear DG384G v3 wireless router in my flat.

In short:

Ever since I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro, internet browsers do not detect a connection to the internet despite a wireless connection being detected in the network connections (and the icon in the system tray) when my wireless adapter is plugged into my PC. Connection problems only occurred after the reformat, another PC in my flat connects wirelessly to our router with no problems (before, during & after the time I reformatted; Iím posting this using his PC) and the router config settings have definitely not been changed in any way so its not a router problem. It appears that the wireless adapter is able to detect a signal from the router but the router is not sending information to the adapter (I canít even connect to the router setup IP address

More detailed:

1) I wiped the PCís harddrive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro Ė I thought the recovery disk would have drivers with it (like others Iíd used) but it didnít so I had to manually find nVidia chipset & 3com Ethernet controller drivers and SP1 (for USB 2.0 functionality), download them on another PC and transfer and install them on mine. I got SP2, this didnít change anything, I changed back to SP1, still no change to connectivity.
