No wireless adapter detected ad wireless button ot turning on


First u need to make sure ur adapter is installed correctly.
1. Click on Start-->Run-->Type in "devmgmt.msc"
which will open device manager.
Under device manager , u should find network adapters, make sure ur adapter is listed under it without any yellow exclamation mark or red cross which would mean that the drivers are not installed correctly or the adapter is disabled. In this case u need to reinstall the drivers via the CD.
2. Secondly u need to goto start-->run-->type in "msconfig"
which will open the system configuration window. Now under the "startup" TAB. Find the service for ur wireless card and disable it by unchecking it and then apply the settings and OK.
Reboot computer once
3. After reboot, goto start-->run-->type in "services.msc"
It will open the services windows . Find an option for wireless zero configuration . Rt click on it and start it.
4. Goto start-->run-->type in "ncpa.cpl"
It will open network connections window.
Rt click on Wireless network conection and enable it .
If it is already enabled , then rt click on it again and click on "View available wireless connections"
It will give u a list of all the wireless connections available in ur area.
Click on the one which is ur connection and then click on connect.
It might ask u for a wireless key if it is a secure connection. Enter the key and it should all work fine.

Im having audio problems


Go to Start and Run in the window type msconfig.exe and press enter.
a window will pop up which has many areas to configure on your pc software.
look for start-up and click the tab.
Check the software listed for any programs that also may use the audio output
if you find a program and want to stop it from automatically starting during your computers boot up.
remove the check mark from the box.
close the window and reboot your computer.
Try using your chatroom again and see if it cures your problem.
If not let me know.

Can't connect to home hub


first, check if your networ adapter is installed properly by opening your device manager. if it is there and does not appear with any marks or splats like a question mark or exclamation point, you can close that window, check if wireless zero config (if you have WinXP) or wireless auto config (if you have WinVista) in Start> Run> Services.msc (XP) or Start>click on search field and type in Services.msc and right-click on that item and choose either Start OR Restart. close that window . (on WinXP) open network connections in control panel, right click on Wireless Network Connections>Properties>click on Wireless Connections tab, place check mark on Use Windows to Configure Wireless, click on OK, that will close that window. then right-click again on the Wireless Network Connection and choose View Available Wireless Network, your network should be there now. on vista, just simply look for the "two computer" icons in the system tray at the bottom right near the time, right-click on that and choose Connect to a Network, it should be able to find your network from there.
