    I did this and then it works (with SP2) but why does it work with other computers (SP3) and the same router without any problems?

The problem is maybey your router is not compatible boot your pc into safe mode and do system restore to when you had the other service pack.

Installing windows software for Kodak ESP5 all in one printer and message appears ''The 32 bit operating system required by the software is above windows xp sp2. What do I do?


Go to the windows (microsoft website) and search for Windows XP SP3 dowload. Though you have the SP2, (service pack 2) you need to upgrade the service pack.

Downlaod the service pack 3 for XP and then re-install your printer.

If this does not work, please let me know.

Windows cannot configure this wireless network


What OS are you running? XP? Most wireless networks are now using the WPA protocol and computers with XP that are not updated at least to SP2 will not connect to these networks even though you can see them available. I would go ahead and updated to the latest SP3 (Service Pack 3). I cant really be more helpful without knowing the OS (operating system).

Wrt54g2 wireless doesn't get past the acquiring network address point.I'm using wpa2 with aes - wireless configuration is manual.


Unfortunately you did not give more information, so I 'm taking a wild guess here. If this solution does not solve you problem, let me know.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2.

To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I have a 54g MaxPerformance 802.11g adapter which came with my compaq presario. My wireless network worked with WEP but won't with this computer using WPA2. I think I need to update the driver. Which one...


I do not believe that updating the driver for your network card will solve the problem, although you should always install the newest one for best operation. You can go to Compaq's support page here and see if there is an update available for your model.

If WEP worked for you and WPA doesn't, then it is an encryption problem. Encryption happens on a different layer than the driver, which simply makes your Operating System work with your hardware.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2

Sp3 and wpa2psk wont install


Particularly I think the problem is not in Wi-Fi connection for your laptop, but the configuration of your router, try using wpa security checks and only connection, besides if you give before you upgrade the service pack, the connection works properly. Additionally if you give before you upgrade the service pack, the connection works properly.

Belkin 802.11g wireless card will not connect after service pack


Make sure the belkin has the latest drivers...
http://www.belkin.com/support/

After that you can make sure that your PC is fully updated, with any patches that have come out after SP3.

If neither of these work i would just go to SP2 untill belkin or microsoft finds a solution.

Network connection lost since sp3


Go to Add/Remove Programs in the control panel.

Next find Service Pack 3 and select "Uninstall"

This will roll your PC back to XP SP2, if you had SP2 installed prior to installing SP3.
See this link from Microsoft:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936929

Scroll down till you come to "uninstall info for windows service pack 3 release candidate'.
You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
