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.

Hi,
Most of the times you would be right when you say its a driver issue. :)
But there are certainly few steps that you can try as in -
a) Making an other third party program manage wireless on your XP SP2 machine
b) Tweaking the wireless channels to check if there is interference(this must have minimal impact as you already state that its working with everything else).
Try downloading a third part freeware to manage your wireless connections and uninstall the arheros client.
But before doing this try with windows client as well.
What is make and manufacturer of the XPSP2 machine??

Turn on file and printer sharing for microsoft networks. Find it in network connections. Right click your connection, then select properties. You must also provide at least one file or folder to share before anything will be seen on the networked pc's.
