If it's Windows XP:-

Click "Start" --> ("Settings") --> "Control Panel"
Double Click "Network Connections"
Right Click on "Wireless Network Connection" --> Select "Enable"
Right Click on "Wireless Network Connection" again --> Select Properties
Make sure the check box "Show Icon in notification area" is checked --> Click "OK"

The wireless network icon will now appear in the bottom right of your screen
Right Click on it and select "View Wireless Networks"
If this respond with "Windows cannot control your wireless network as another program is controlling your Network"

Quick time and Vista with internet problems.


Hi there.
I am working on the assumption that you use Vista but XP is just about the same. This method will also hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings.
Ok, what i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "un-install" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again

keep me informed please

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Getting Vista to use my wireless internet connection correctly


One question, is... do you need to enter a KEY or is this an open network?
I have found that with a new computer, you need to do the following to connect.
If this is an open network, then leave your router running, and just do a cold boot with your computer.
IE: Shut down, count to 10, and then re-start.
You may also need to connect (by network cable) to your router and make sure the wireless is turned on.
Most new rountes start with the wireless disabled.
