How to enable wireless networks on hp pavilion a6330f or does it need a wireless card and which and what type of card or PCI or USB? What is a PCI? How to install a wireless card?


See the link below for product specifications.The simple way to go is an external usb adapter for wireless, since your motherboard only has one PCI slot and it likely has a 56K modem installed in it. Remember to put the driver disk which comes with your adapter in the CDROM/DVD drive BEFORE you plug in the usb adapter , and follow the installation directions carefully - unrecognized usb devices can be difficult to remove...

How to turn on wireless switch on a desktop


I've never seen a 'switch' on a desktop to turn-on wireless, like there are on Laptops/Notebooks.

Usually it is either a device that is install in a slot in the PC, or it is a USB plug-in adapter. There ARE some motherboards with built-in Wireless ability, those can be turned-On/Off in the BIOS.

You would have to have a Wireless Router/Wireless Access Point in place already, it would need to be setup and security enabled.

Then it would be a matter of installing the driver for the device....WHEN you do that depends on the type of adapter you have:

add-on slot adapter -- Install adapter, then driver software
USB -- install driver software, DO NOT plug-in adapter until directed to do so, or the driver installation finishes.

CAUSE
Windows XP SP3 introduces a new .dll file that is named Wlanapi.dll. This file is installed in the %WINDIR%\System32 folder. Certain device driver installations for some third-party wireless network adapters also install a Wlanapi.dll file in the %WINDIR%\System32 folder. If such a file is installed in this folder before you install Windows XP SP3, the Wlanapi.dll file that is associated with the network adapter is replaced by the file from the Windows XP SP3 installation.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, check the Web site of the wireless network adapter's manufacturer for the latest device drivers that are available for a Windows XP SP3-based system. Then, download and install the latest device drivers for the wireless network adapter. Source(s): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950720

HI,
Did you reinstall the drivers for your wireless adapter? please check the device manager and confirm that wireless adapter is getting listed under "Network Adapters". and if the driver package includes a software which helps to configure the wireless adaptor , you can find it under Start-> All Programs menu. if there is no software provided with the driver package, follow the instructioss:
1. click Start and Run.
2.  in the Run command box. Type "services.msc" hit enter.
3. in the list check for a service named, Wireless Zero Configuration. check the status, if it is disabled, right click on it, go to properties and  select the startup type as "Automatic". click apply and click start.
4. now go to control panel and go to network connections, . if the drivers are properly installed for your wireless adapter , you can see a computer icon with a red x marx which has the name of your wireless adapter. right click on it and select the option view available networks, it will scan for signals and will give you a list of wireless netwok available in the range, select your network and connect, it will ask you for a key if its a secured network, enter the key and it will connect without any problems, 
Hope this will help you.
Thanks, 
Vipin

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.

Installed WMP54GS and am getting the following error from Linksys Wireless Network Monitor Access violation at address 0040744D in module WMP54GSv1_1.exe'. Read of address 00000368


Possibly you have installed the WLAN monitor also that is why it is creating the error...try these settings... Reboot your computer in SafeModeUninstall the software for the Adapter from start >> All programs/Remove the Drivers from Device Manager...Turn your computer Off and connect the adapter in a different PCI Slot...Reboot your computer in Normal Mode...
>> Insert the Setup CD in the cd drive>> Click on Exit when the

complete>> Right click on the wireless network connection icon in the
system tray besides the clock >>Click on view wireless networks and
then connect to your network name...
