This often occurs if you install the controlling software that came with the device. If you remove the controlling software, Windows should then be able to configure the wireless device.

Click start, then Settings, then Control panel (you may be able to skip the 'settings' step, depending on your configuration).

Once inside the control panel, find the Add / Remove Programs option and open it.

When the list of programs shows on your screen, scroll down to find anything that starts with Linksys; highlight it, then remove the software.

Restart your computer if asked. Upon restart (assuming the device is connected) if the computer tells you it found new hardware, allow it to install automatically all the way through. Do NOT reinstall the software from the disk that came with the device.

Once this is complete, Windows should configure your wireless for you.

Good luck.

Unable to install Epson TM-U220B[U220 with UB-U02III usb interface] on Windows 7 AND XP!


Hi!

Are you using a third party USB adapter or a USB interface? On the self test page that you printed does it say USB connection or something that will say about USB? or does it say parallel or serial connection? try to check the dip switches setting if its configured properly. visit epsonexperts.com site for more info.

Error in scanner. Turn off scanner and follow instructions in manual.Scanner driver will be closed. (code:201) Unable to open TWATN source Please check connection Then re-start Toolbox.


This error can be caused by many different issues. Try the following resolutions in order until your issue is fixed-

1. You should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists.

2. unistall and re-install drivers-
1. Place the CanoScan Setup CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.
2. When the CanoScan Setup Utility menu appears, click the option to 'Uninstall the Software' and then follow the prompts.

3. Disable Third-party Software
Software applications that are active during installation can cause errors, installation difficulties and even abort the installation.*1 Close all running applications, including anti-virus programs, before installing Canon Software. You can also prevent these applications from starting through 'System Configuration Utility' (also referred to as 'msconfig') in Windows 98/Me, Windows XP and Windows Vista.

If your computer is part of an office network: Network permissions, security software, etc. may be interfering with proper communication. Please contact your System or Network Administrator before attempting to disable software on your system.

a. See your applications' documentation for instructions on how to close it.

b. If you are unable to locate the documentation or the application appears to be running after it is closed, disable the startup items in the Windows 'System Configuration Utility'.

c. If disabling startup items in 'msconfig' does not correct the issue, disable non-Microsoft related services in 'Services' tab of 'System Configuration Utility' window.

d. Attempt to install the Canon software (drivers). If the drivers were already installed, uninstall them (keep the third-party software disabled) and then reinstall the drivers.

e. After installation is complete, set 'msconfig' back to 'Normal Startup'.

Windows xp identifies Belkin f5d5010 Network card as a generic ethernet controller and is unable to find a driver to install properly this adapter


If you find that you can not connect to a wireless base station (such as Apple's Airport) because of issues with the configuration software provided by your wireless adapter's manufacturer. You may wish to uninstall that software (but keep the drivers) and use XP's native support for wireless networking.
In order to do this you may need to turn on XP's wireless zero configuration.
Start -> Run
zwc000.gif
Type in services.msc
zwc001.gif Click the OK button, which will bring up the following dialogue.
zwc002.gif You may want to maximise the screen. Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and select it.
zwc003.gif You now have the option to Start the service.
You also need to change the Startup Type from Manual to Automatic
Action -> Properties
zwc004.gif Click OK.
You can now use XP to manage your wireless connection.

Dell Dimension 4700 - Driver Reset


1st you need to download or install all the drivers for your Dell computer. Try to use the drivers/utilities disks first. Once you can get online, go to Dell.com and look up your model 4700 and download all the missing drivers. Your Linksys Router is not a modem. The Linksys has the modem connected to it for wireless connections.
