On my averatec 3250 notebook, the wireless adapter tries to connect to the wireless router that it sees in prefered networks. It tries to aquire an IP address then cuts out, and tries again. It will keep this up for some time, but never succeed. This problem never happened before, just this past month. I have a linksy wireless router that is configured for wpa key connections.
Many thanks for your help.

Re: WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEM
Have you configured your wireless adapter with same WPA key that you had set on the wireless router?
Do you detect other Wireless routers in your area and are they using the same wireless channel as your router?
If so change the wireless channel on your wireless to an unused wireless channel to avoid interference with other wireless routers.

Things to Check:
1. Please check if the wireless switch on your laptop is ON?
2. Are you able to see your wireless network in the list of connections?
If the answer for both of the above is yes, then Turn OFF & Turn ON the Modem/Router.
Please delete all the connections that are stored on your laptop's wireless settings/Wireless connections and retry connecting to your network.
On your modem/router, please remove any security passwords and make the network accessible by any one any try connecting to the network.If the connection is successful, then reprogram the modem / router with a password.
Another easy fix to find if the fault is actually with your laptop is to go to a free public wireless hotspot and see if your laptop connects to their network.If it dd, its not your Laptop but your wireless modem/router.
I got your issue , for your issue , I f you want to go online hard wired to the router , make sure the Local are connection in the comp is enabled as well you have coted that u can see red cross in the wireless network connection icon, so make sure do not have any preferred networks in the comp.
when you try to connect to the wireless network does it ask for the wireless password ? If your wireless network is secured then it should ask you for the password of the network. You can try to remove the network from the preferred network list. Also check the wireless settings of the router. Make sure that you have all the correct wireless settings. To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to open the router set up page. Click here for more information about the routers and wireless networks
If you are running Windows XP sometimes your linksys software and Windows software conflict and makes connecting to wireless network difficult. Check to see if the linksys software is telling you there is another software used to connect to wireless networks, if so then one needs to be stopped. Also if your drivers are loaded correctly you can see a icon in the taskbar looks like a PC with a red x. Right click it and click view available wireless networks and see if it pick yours up. If all else fails uninstall all drivers and redo from scratch. Sometimes that is the quickest fix.
Verified that the Internet connection is working good
- Now if your connected to the wireless network but unable to access a website try this:
- Open the control panel - Open the network connection - Right click on wireless networks (Choose properties) - Choose Internet protocol then click properties - Assign DNS Server address (Preferred DNS: 126.96.36.199, Alternate DNS: 188.8.131.52) - Leave the DCHP as obtain IP address
First make sure that your wireless router is set to broadcast (or if you prefer not to broadcast) your SSID (your wireless network name) or that your laptop wireless network connection properties is set-up to "Connect even if this network is not broadcasting".
To check this go to:
Click Start> Connect to>Show all connections> Right click your Wireless Connection and select properties> On the Properties box select "Wireless Network" tab > Go to "Preferred networks" then highlight your SSID (network name) Click "properties" button check "connect even if this network is not broadcasting". (while youre here check that your "Wireless network key" confgurations are correct).
Make sure that you are also set-up to "Obtain an IP Address automatically " and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
Click Start> Connect to>Show all connections>
Right click your Wireless Connection and select properties> Select "General" and under the heading "This connection uses the following items"> Highlight "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then click "Properties" button
Try resetting your IP address: The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.
1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista) 2) Click Run 3) Type in CMD This will take you to a black command box 4) Type in: ipconfig/release The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0 Once this has happened, proceed to step 5 5) Type in: ipconfig/renew You should now see a new IP address listed.
Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop. Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
