Question about 2wire (1000-000005-002) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
This wireless card works fine for me apart from one thing: Everytime I restart the PC I have to re-enter the wireless network key into the client utility or I can't connect to the internet. Is there any way I can make the client remember it? Thanks
I have the same problem; with my Laptop + original 2wire card and PDA + socket wireless card My laptop wireless worked fine for month, then happened what you discribed- had to enter the WEP key each time after rebooting. With the PDA it helped to choose "connect" to one of the found networks. If you have several connection possibilities (networks) you may choose "connect" manually each time. My PDA needs a very long time to connect (while I'm playing around, it says "connected", but the Link LED still just blinks) I have the suspicion, that you have to connect/login to 2wire first to initialize the connection and have it permantly. But I agree that their is not enough context sensive help popup, the phone support does not know much either The key(like any password), will always be asterisked out

Thanks again for the reply. I've reinstalled the drivers a few times (and actually reinstalled Windows too) but it still does the same. When I click on the box in the utility where you enter the network key, the key is still there asterisked out, but I have to enter it again and refresh before the card reconnects to the network and lets me connect to the Internet. Maybe I should contact 2wire directly via their website because it seems like a problem with their software, although looking at some pages in Google I haven't found anyone else with this same problem :(. Thanks for your help anyway.

With the description you have provided, I presume that you are using Windows XP. Now, whenever we use utilities to manage wireless adapters, they always conflict with the Wireless Zero Configuration (A service in Windows XP which manages your wireless adapters) and mostly your utility is not able to retain the settings provided to it. The best solution would be to disable the Utility and use the Wireless Zero Configuration instead. We can do that by right clicking the icon for the utility which must be available in the system tray (on the right bottom corner of the computer srceen) and there must be an option which says something like - 'use windows to manage the wireless adapter'. Once we do that, we need to make sure that the Wireless Zero Configuration is actually enabled. Please follow the following steps. STEP 1: 1. Click on start -> run 2. Type 'services.msc' and click OK 3. This will display a list of services 4. Try and locate the 'Wireless Zero Configuration' in the list 5. Double click on it 6. Make sure the 'Startup type' is set to 'Automatic' and the status is 'Started' STEP 2: 1. Click Start -> Control Panel 2. Locate the icon - Network Connections (when in classic view) 3. Under Network Connections, right click on the 'Wireless Network Connection' and click on 'Properties' 4. Look for the 'Wireless Networks' tab 5. Look for the check box which says 'use windows to configure the wireless network settings' Any further questions or issues, please get back to me. good luck
