    It sounds like there are no drivers installed for the wireless OR that you need to create a new connection for the wireless. Have you looked in Device Manager to be sure there is a wireless adapter showing? It will be under Network Adapters. Let me know and we'll take the next step if needed.

If you are getting "web page not found" error message, then you are not connected to the internet. Are you using PdaNet as the tethering program? You should have this installed on both the phone and your computer.

Cannot get internet connection


You probably have to buy a wireless card and and install it in your computer...there wasn't much in the way of home wireless back in 2002.
Go to your device manager and look at the network adapters and see if you have a wireless adapter installed on your system. If not, you will have to put a wireless pci card in and install it and then you will be able to configure your computer to connect to your router with a wireless connection.

Windows xp service pack3 no wireless internet


ok, this is an easy fix, just go into device manager and unistall the wireless card, dissable AVG firewall and activate microsoft's firewall. Then Download CCleaner and clean the registry, you can download it from here:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

when you have cleaned the registry restart the pc, it should now detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, it will show this in the system tray (bottom righthand side where the time is)
This should resolve the problem for you
post back if you still have problems

Don't have wireless connection on my Toshiba notebook.


Make sure the drivers are installed for your wireless adapter. XP sometimes overlooks adapters during installation. Check the Device Manager for any yellow exclamation points. If you find one, uninstall it and click on the top item (your computer). Right-click the same device and then click Scan for Hardware Changes. You should have your drivers disk ready. The device will likely install, but be unable to find drivers. Point XP to your drivers disk and it should install the drivers for you.

BTW, if you don't have a drivers disk, check your system BIOS for the chipset and google for "<chipset number/name> Windows XP drivers". You should be able to find the drivers and download them from the wired connection before trying the above instructions for reinstalling the wifi drivers.

I hope this helps!

CharlieJ
