Hello Michael,

Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) does not normally say cable unplugged. I think you are looking at your Local Area Network (LAN) connection. Make sure your wireless card drivers are installed, and the device is enabled.

1. Click Start
2. Right Click My Computer
3. Click Manage
4. Select Device Manager in Left Column of Newly Opened Window.

Make sure your wireless card does not have a yellow caution sign on it, and make sure your wireless card also does not have a red X. (If you when you select device manager, no devices show that right away, then it should be ok)

If there is a yellow caution sign, you may need to install drivers or your device is having some sort of issue.

If there is a red 'X' on the device, right click the device, and select enable. Again verify there is no caution sign.

Make sure your wireless radio is also turned on.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

As a reminder, if this post helps, please rate it. Thankyou.

My laptop runs Vista. It will connect to my network, but not to the internet. All of the other computers and devices connect to the internet with no problem. Can you help me?


If you are connecting to your router wirelessly try to check the wireless settings on your computer. It might be that you were not able to provide the correct security code for your wireless network.

If you are connected through an ethernet cable, check the connection from the router going to your computer.

Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
On the Wireless Networks tab, do one of the following: •
To enable automatic wireless network configuration, select the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box. This check box is selected by default. For information about what happens when you enable automatic wireless network configuration, see Notes.
To disable automatic wireless network configuration, clear the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.
To connect to an existing wireless network, do one of the following:
Access point (infrastructure)
To connect to an existing access point (infrastructure) network, under Available networks, click the network name, and then click Configure.
In Wireless Network Properties, specify the wireless network key (Wired Equivalent Privacy) settings, or, if the network key is automatically provided for you (for example, the key is stored on the wireless network adapter given to you by your administrator), select the The key is provided for me automatically check box. If you are unsure about whether a network key is needed or which settings you need to enter, contact your network administrator or the wireless network adapter manufacturer.

Important
If a network does not broadcast its network name, it will not appear under Available networks. To connect to an access point (infrastructure) network that you know is available but that does not appear under Available networks, under Preferred networks, click Add. In Wireless Network Properties, specify the network name (Service Set Identifier) and, if needed, the wireless network key settings.


Computer-to-computer (ad hoc)
To connect to an existing computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network, under Available networks, click the network name, and then click Configure.
In Wireless Network Properties, specify the wireless network key (Wired Equivalent Privacy) settings, or, if the network key is automatically provided for you (for example, the key is stored on the wireless network adapter given to you by your administrator), select the The key is provided for me automatically check box. If you are unsure about whether a network key is needed or which settings you need to enter, contact your network administrator or the wireless network adapter manufacturer.
If you want to connect to a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network and both computer-to-computer and access point (infrastructure) networks are within range of your computer, click Advanced, and then click Computer-to-computer (ad hoc) networks only.
To configure a new wireless network connection, click Add, and then do the following: •
In Wireless Network Properties, specify the network name (Service Set Identifier) and, if needed, the wireless network key settings.
If the network connection that you are configuring is to a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network, select the This is a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network; wireless access points are not used check box.
To change the order in which connection attempts to preferred networks are made, under Preferred networks, click the wireless network that you want to move to a new position on the list, and then click Move up or Move down.
To change the wireless network connection settings for a network that is listed in Preferred networks, click the wireless network for which you want to change settings, click Properties, and then change the settings as needed.
To remove a wireless network from the list of preferred networks, under Preferred networks, click the wireless network that you want to remove, and then click Remove.
To update the list of available networks that are within range of your computer, click Refresh.
To automatically connect to available networks that do not appear in the Preferred networks list, click Advanced, and then select the Automatically connect to non-preferred networks check box.
To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.
When you enable automatic wireless network configuration, you can connect to an existing wireless network, change wireless network connection settings, configure a new wireless network connection, and specify preferred wireless networks. You will be notified when new wireless networks are available. After you select a wireless network, your wireless network adapter will be automatically configured to match the settings of that network, and a network connection attempt will be made.

To configure settings on the Wireless Networks tab, you must be logged on as an administrator, and you must use a wireless network adapter that supports the Wireless Zero Configuration service. If you are unsure whether your wireless network adapter supports the Wireless Zero Configuration service, contact your network administrator or the wireless network adapter manufacturer. For more information about automatic wireless network configuration, see Related Topics.
If you are using third-party wireless networking software, clear the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.
If you are unable to connect to an existing wireless network and the name of the network that you want to connect to appears under the Preferred networks list, click the preferred network name, and then click Properties. In Wireless Network Properties, review the settings to ensure that they are correct. If you are unsure whether the settings are correct, contact your network administrator or the wireless network adapter manufacturer.
If the Preferred networks list includes both access point (infrastructure) and computer-to-computer (ad hoc) networks, you cannot move a computer-to-computer network to a position in the list that is higher than the position of an access point network.
To provide enhanced security for 802.11 wireless networks and for wired Ethernet networks, IEEE 802.1x authentication is enabled by default. For more information about how to set up 802.1x authentication.

General Networking question


lets see here, your NVIDIA thing is for your ethernet port in your computer.

the wireless PCI adapter, is well, a wireless adapter, its used to connect your wireless, and a 1394 Net Adaptor Connection is basically Win2k/XP's way of telling you that you have a Firewire interface installed in your system.

so, if your going wireless, you dont need NVIDIA, and as your device manager shows that it has a red x on it, it shows that its disabled. as for everything else, i wouldent worry about it.
