Broadband connection issue w/ XP SP2

I run Microsoft Broadband for my home wireless network. For one of my towers on the network when I load SP2 I lose the ability to link to the wireless network. It just won't. I have to restore Windows back to an earlier setting. Any ideas for a workaround?

Upgrade the computer to SP2 and then check the firewall settings after the upgrade. Turn off the firewall and see if you can connect then. I you still have a problem I would check the computer for viruses with a free online virus checker or with Trinity Rescue CD.

My windows xp home is slow on loading websites as compared to other machines on the same wireless. What could be the reason for this


There could be many possible reasons for your machine being slow loading websites:

- Do you have a lot of programs running in the background?
- Are you using the same browser as the other machines on your network?
- Does your computer have as much RAM as the other computers?
- Is your wireless adapter as fast as the adapters on the other computers?

Cannot connect to wireless network with Vista


I don not think there is a problem with your laptop. It connects to your network when you use the Ethernet cable, because the wired network is yours. As to the 4 networks to which you are trying to connect with the wireless, they must be secured as they should be. If you want to access them (and why would you since you have your own Internet connection), you will have to ask authorization from the networks owners (your neighbors). If they agree, they will provide you with all the information you require to log on and share their bandwidth.

Explorer- IE Cannot load Webpages


What are you using for connection? WIreless, Lan? Go to start, run, and type in cmd push enter. then type ipconfig, press enter. This should bring all of your network connections. If you are going through a router(Wether it be Belkin, linkysys, or some other brand), the default gateway is where your connection is going through. try to ping your default gateway first. You should get four responses. If you don't there is a connection issue. I have a few other suggestions, but try these first. I hope they help.
