Can't make a wireless connection.

what's the error? if your getting the error Connected with limited connectivity try checking your network key in the router and the wireless settings on your computer if they are correct or just removed your security key, if your getting an error no networks in range or no network available check the router settings if the wireless signal is turned on the router, if you get an error windows could not connect to wireless networks try uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card driver on your system and set the the router to defaults then try connecting with out changing any settings in the router to see if it will connect, if it connects, then there was/were settings in the router and possibly in the wireless settings in your laptop that was causing the computer and the router to have communication issues, also check for possible applications such as network magic that could cause a wireless signal to degrade or not allow connections at all if such application exists on your system uninstall it Microsoft or windows has its own wireless configuration software built into handle wireless connections in XP it is wireless zero configuration in vista and in win7 WLAN which can be set in network and sharing connection in the control panel window.....

Wireless router not detected by laptop


First, make sure you know the SSID (name of your wireless network) and Network key (if your wireless router is secured). Also, make sure that the SSID broadcast of your laptop is enabled (this is an option in the router if they will broadcast the signal or not).

I assume that your laptop came with a built in Broadcom adapter. Depending on the brand of your laptop, there is always a wireless switch. You need to look for the wireless switch and turn it ON. For most laptops it's a sliding switch on either the side or front of the laptop. For some it's a combination key - like pressing FN + F2 at the same time.

For XP laptops, you can use the XP wireless utility located on the lower right side of your screen like this :

For some reason the XP utility cannot detect any signal and it's telling you that "Windows cannot configure this.. if you enable another utility, use that software to connect", that only means that there is another software in the computer that is running the wireless connection. You can go to Start > All Programs and look for that utility - you can start by searching a program like broadcom.

For Vista , look for this icon to connect:


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Wireless adapter

check the ettings on the router have not been altered. the chance of 2 wireless cards failing in the same time, on different pcs is very small, more likely the settings that allow connection in the router, the item common to both, have been changed, reinstalling the router has no effect on user settings,
WEP, encryption, MAC controls are all possible suspects, if there has been any change
lock down the router,
many wireless networks are unsecured at the router so that any person driving past can access your router and alter it, default security settings should be changed the day you turn it on

The capability of your network adapter does not match the requirements of the network

Sounds like driver related problem to me. Re install the driver by using your installation CD, or simply download this tool Driver Update Software for XP Vista 7 8 and make the update. Cheers
