Connecting to the acces point (router) but not to the internet
I have installed a wireless G- usb adapter. But now the wireless assistent mentions that I am succesfully connected to the acces point, but not to the internet. I have already entered my passphrase, but it still does not connect.
Re: Connecting to the acces point (router) but not to the...
I had a similar problem and solved it this way:
Go to Start > All Programs > (the name of your USB adapter). In that folder there should be a "manager" or some type of program. Run it. One of the settings should read "AP mode" or "Station mode". When I switched from AP to Station, suddenly a list of available networks popped up. And my problem was solved.
Hopefully that will work for you too.

Your problem is listed under the wrong product category, just thought I'd mention that. Are you trying to troubleshoot the N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter (WNDA3100)? I can not identify your hardware by the number 600n. Feel free to respond so I can further assist you in finding the drivers you need to get that XP up and running again.
If your device can detect other acces point then, your wifi device is correctly installed. If not, os will tell your wifi have problem. If you try connect, and have problem with connection, it came from your acces point(wifi router expample). Maybe it have password that have not match with your pc. If that access point is yours, then you can try check the password for wifi using cable connection.
If that acces point(wifi router) is not yours(public), then you cant get the password unless you try hack using air-ng, backtrend using wifi device that can capture and monitor the network(wifi *** support a/b/g exmple) if it only support b/g, you cant get wep encryption password.
If it does not have password, and you try to connect, but it still problem, that mean, it have restrictly to MAC address in wifi router.
there is nothing inside a PC that will keep it or anything else from connecting to a wireless network. You have to lookout for things that use the same frequency such as cordless phones and believe it or not microwave ovens. both broadcast at 2.4Ghz which is the same frequency wireless routers and access points use. Your problem may also be a neighbor with a wireless router or access point using the same channel. Wireless routers and access points have 11 different channels that they can broadcast on and if you and your neighbor are using the same channel there will be interference. try changing the channel on your wireless router or access point.
It appears the wireless adapter is not working properly or is not configured with the wireless router's settings Ie. the SSID, and encryption etc.
First install the latest wireless adapter driver.
Next configure the wireless adapter with the wireless router's settings.
It needs to be the same as the wireless settings in the laptops.
If you need further help, please contact me.
You have not mentioned having a wireless router or access point to serve as the hub on an infrastructure network. I you have a router please let me know -- the instructions for the solution changes.
The following is an article to create an ad hoc network between wireless cards without a wireless access point or a router. If you ignore the steps about connecting to the internet with a wired connection and the internet sharing instructions. This will allow your machines with wireless adapters to communicate with each other (assuming the operate on a common band). The article goes on to indicate one machine with a wired connection can act as the "router" for the other two when it is on to allow them share internet access with the wired machine (the wired machine also needs a wireless card for this to work).
