Question about Network & Wireless Adapters

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

Can't make a wireless connection.


what's the error? if your getting the error Connected with limited connectivity try checking your network key in the router and the wireless settings on your computer if they are correct or just removed your security key, if your getting an error no networks in range or no network available check the router settings if the wireless signal is turned on the router, if you get an error windows could not connect to wireless networks try uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card driver on your system and set the the router to defaults then try connecting with out changing any settings in the router to see if it will connect, if it connects, then there was/were settings in the router and possibly in the wireless settings in your laptop that was causing the computer and the router to have communication issues, also check for possible applications such as network magic that could cause a wireless signal to degrade or not allow connections at all if such application exists on your system uninstall it Microsoft or windows has its own wireless configuration software built into handle wireless connections in XP it is wireless zero configuration in vista and in win7 WLAN which can be set in network and sharing connection in the control panel window.....

Cannot connect wireless


My best suggestion is not to use the Intel wireless manager. Please go into the wireless manager and take off the "check mark" where it says the Intel Manager manages the wireless card.  This will disable the Intel wireless manager from managing your wireless card and give control back to Windows.
-Right-click "Recycle Bin" and choose "Explore"
-Right-click "My Network Places" and choose "Properties"
-Right-click on wireless network (should only be 1, maybe 2) and choose "View available wireless networks"
-Click on the wireless name from the list that belongs to your office Access point.
-If it needs a key, enter the key when prompted (it will ask you to enter it twice, one for each line).
-Once you complete this step, you should have wireless access once again.
-Intel will keep prompting you if you'd like for it to manager your wireless, I suggest you ignore this message from this point forward and only use the Windows wireless manager (built-into all Windows OS). :)

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.

Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection code 10


Hi,
Code 10 usually means the device driver is not compatible, outdated or corrupt.

Try uninstalling the wireless device again and then reinstall using the latest driver available from:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2259&OSFullName=Windows+Vista*+Home+Premium%2C+32-bit+version&lang=eng&strOSs=153&submit=Go!

NB If you're running XP, use the second one.

Hope this helps

Sending but not receiving packages


you need to check the settings on your firewall, as this will most likely try to block this incoming signal as a "Threat from an unknown source".

 

It's just trying to protect you.
