Ok if your wireless card appears to be installed and working but all you get is an empty list of networks every time you search for available networks then chances are the windows wireless service is not running.. to fix this try the following:

"Right click" on "my computer" icon and select "manage" from the drop down menu

Then when the management console appears click "services and applications" on the left pane

Then in the right pane "double click" the word "services" to show the list of services running on your computer.

Then scroll down to the bottom of the list and usually about the third from the bottom you will see a service called "wireless zero Config"

You need to make sure it says "started" in the "status" column if it does not then "right click" on it and select "start" from the drop down menu

If the service says started and you are still getting an empty list then let me know and i will help you with the next step in solving it but usually 9 times out of 10 that is the issue

I hope this info helps

My system can't detect the netgear router so, I can't connect. Error is view wireless network security setting for Netgear.


The network security depends on the operating system.
Windows 2000,xp-security:WEP
Windows vista,MAC-security:WPA.If your using for eg vista and xp then choose WEP as xp wont support WPA.

Help me in getting my Win XP work with my WLAN.


Do you have two laptops, one with Vista and one with XP?
Can the XP laptop detect the wireless router?
If so check the wireless card settings on the Vista laptop (ie the SSID and the encryption setting) and configure the same settings on the wireless card on the XP laptop.

Wireless card not detecting!!!!


I had simalar problems where I could not detect my wireless network even though I could get on the internet I could not see the other computer on my network. I finally after trying everyone else's advice which did not work, found a program called Network Magic. You can purchase it from www.purenetworks.com for $30.00. It took care of all of my network problems and even shows a nice map of how my network is setup and what computers are logged onto the network and even what software like Windows Xp or Windows Vista is on that computer. It will even generate daily logs if you want to show any problems with the network.

I cannot detect my wireless


Right click on My Computer and go to device properties and see if the wireless card is listed in the devices.
If not you will have to install the drivers for the wireless network device. You can find them at there website.

Are you sure that you installed the windows xp drivers and not the vista drivers? There may be no xp drivers for your laptop, and if thats the case, you'll have to switch back to vista. Make sure you know 100% that its the xp drivers.
