Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I received a new XP laptop today! When tried to "search for available wireless networks" I could not because Intel software kept taking over from Windows XP, so I removed/uninstalled my intel wireless network adaptor -woops! I can connect to the internet using a wired ethernet connection. I am looking for the drivers that will enable my intel wireless network adaptor, on a Lenovo F31 laptop to work properly, and connect to my home network. I hope you can help, Yours sincerely, Suleman Pervez

Unable to use the wireless setup wizard - I am trying to connect my pc with my wireless printer. When I try to use the setup wizard on the pc it says depending on the wireless software installed on this pc...


The Wireless Network Setup Wizard and the View Available Wireless Networks feature both rely on the Wireless Zero Configuration service to provide their functionality to Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Microsoft Windows XP Table PC Edition 2005. If the Wireless Zero Configuration service is not available, you receive an error message that directs you to this article. This behavior occurs for several reasons. Some computer and hardware manufacturers provide their own configuration software that replaces the Wireless Zero Configuration service that is provided in Windows. In that case, you must use the software that is provided by the manufacturer to configure your wireless network. If you want to use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard or the View Available Wireless Networks feature to configure your wireless device, see the documentation that came with your computer or with your wireless network card. Use this documentation to determine whether you can use the Wireless Zero Configuration service to configure your wireless network. Sometimes, you cannot use the Windows functionality.
If your computer or your wireless network adapter did not come with its own wireless network software, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. Click Network Connections.
  3. In Network Connections, click to select your wireless connection, and then clickChange settings of this connection.
  4. On the Wireless Networks tab, click to select the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.

To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
  2. Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
  3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
  4. In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.

If you receive an error message when you try to start the service, see the "References" section for more troubleshooting information.For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 815485 Overview of the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security update in Windows XP 313242 How to troubleshoot wireless network connections in Windows XP

Intel ProSet Wifi software can't connect to network


You need to manually add the network using your intel pro set utility. Or just switch to wzc.(wireless zero configuration). How to do it? just click start - go to run - type in services.msc - then look for wireless zero configuration on the list - right click on it then click start.
Then look for the wireless network connection icon on the system tray (that's in the bottom right hand corner of your screen). right click on it then select view available wireless network.

note: if you'll be getting the message "windows could not configure..." click change the order of preferred networks(that's in the same window where you're getting that message) then check the box that says "use windows to configure my wireless network settings" then click ok. after that go back to view available wireless networks then you should see your network now.

note: if you're using a corporate laptop where you don't have admin rights on it you need to use the intel pro

Intel proset wireless 3945ABG no adapters found


You need to disable the Windows Wireless manager in order for the Intel app to take over control of the wireless adapter.

Start
Run
"services.msc"

Find a service called "Windows Zero Wireless Configuration". Stop it. Set it to disable.

Try rebooting the machine and the Intel app should work.
