Win XP Can't find network card

Win XP says it cannot find my network hardware. However I'm able to access the internet under linux on the same machine.. I've tried rollback and it hasn't worked.

Is there some setting that's been munged? or do I have to reinstall the os on the partition? (NB . I boot with GRUB )

You may need to trash all the XP network configurations and start from scratch. A similar thing has happened to me but YMMV

Lost internet connection linux mint 14

Installing your wireless driver on a Linux distribution is only half the battle.
Once it's installed, you have to configure it.
This means adding the network name, or SSID (service set identifier), and the passkey for your wireless network.
In older versions of Linux, this had to be done with the "iwconfig" command line tools.
Luckily, Linux Mint has incorporated a graphical utility for configuring your Ethernet and wireless adapters.
Open the "Control Center," which will be found under the main program menu on the bottom right of your computer screen.
Click the "Network Connections" icon under the "Internet and Network" section.

Click the "Wireless" tab in the "Network Connections" window.

Click the "Add" button.

Type the name for your wireless network in the "SSID" text box.

Choose one of the options under the "Mode" drop-down list. Most users will choose the "Infrastructure" option.

Click the "Security" tab.

Choose your network's security protocol from the "Security" drop-down list.

Type the key for your wireless network in the "Key" text box.

Click "Apply" to save the changes.

Click the network connection icon in the task bar. It will look like two computers and can be found next to the clock.

Click on the name of your wireless connection to connect to the network. - The_network_manager.

Activate a Wi-Fi Card for Linux Mint
Log into Mint as user root. Launch a command shell, either by logging in in text mode or by launching a Terminal window from the graphical desktop.

Type the following command into the shell:
Press "Enter." Make a note of the name chosen by Linux Mint for your Wi-Fi card it will be the only word displayed flush with the left edge of the screen.

Type the following command into the shell:
iwlist wlan0 scan
Replace "wlan0" with the name of the Wi-Fi card you noted earlier.
Press "Enter."
Mint will display a list of the wireless networks in range that you can potentially join.

Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig wlan0 essid library-wireless
Replace "library-wireless" with the name of the network you want to join, from the list generated by the "iwlist" command. Linux Mint will join the network.
At this point you can browse the Web and access the Internet in other ways via the Wi-Fi card on your computer.

Unable to get any Internet access with IE7, IE8, Firefox etc...

XP or Vista ?
Go to Network - Properties - the network card. Make sure you have "Get network address automatically"
DOS box type ipconfig /all what's it say.
There are viruses that can kill TCP/IP
Get a copy of LSPfix It will check your TCP/IP programs.
I did have one XP machine that lost it's network setting, could never get it running without a reinstall.
If Linyx works, it's not the card.

Can't connect to internet by using LINKSYS Wireless-G card

I am assuming you have a dual boot machine meaning it runs either linux or windows and not both at the same time. Linux on the other hand may not configure the card automatically and as you should consider changes to the laptop in terms of configuration and devices are actually changes to two computers the windows computer and the linux computer. You probably did some configuration for windows to enable the wireless card (if there was no encryption windows may have done it for you). Linux on the other hand may not recognose and configure the card automatically and as you should consider changes to the laptop in terms of configuration and devices are actually changes to two computers the windows computer and the linux computer. The many flavors of linux also have almost as many means to configure devices. In order to assist you I will need to know which distribution and version of linux you are using. I will also need to know the manufacturer and model (possibly number and not description) of the wireless adapter to be configured. Warning this may be easy and in other cases it may not be and I have access to few linux distributions to experiment with.

Can't connect to internet

What's your OS? Win XP, Linux...what? If those are installed correctly, they should automatically find the drivers or prompt you to put in the software disk for it. If WinXP Go to Control panel > System > Hardware Look for any "yellow !" and remove them. Shut down and restart. Should solve your problem.

WIn XP has a built in Firewall that may be enabled. To disable this Click on Start, go to control panel and then network connections. Right click the local area connection and go to properties. Click the advanced tab and uncheck: Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet. If you do not do this it can prevent you from using the router or even accessing the router configuration screen. The reason it causes a problem is the router already has a firewall and the built in firewall can cause a problem.
