How do i reset it my wireless adapter

If I were you, I'd first let Windows Manage Wireless Network Connections:
  1. Click Start If you're using XP, click Start then open the Control Panel. Find the Switch to Classic View button in the Control Panel and click it.
  2. Open Network Connections Open Network Connections then double-click the Wireless Network Connection icon.
  3. Click the Properties Click the Properties button. Look for the boxes at the bottom of the Properties window that read "Show icon in notification area when connected" and "Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity" and make sure they are both checked.
  4. You could also right click on the Wireless Network Connection icon and click Properties from there.
  5. Open Wireless Networks tab Open the Wireless Networks tab and make sure the box labeled "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" is checked. Then click OK.
  6. under Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center you could find "manage wireless connection" there you could assign/delete wireless connection.

I am trying to set up a laptop to work via router, I alredy have this laptop connected, but it asks for my network or WEP key I think, which I don't know how to find

First of all, need to know what OS you are using, since it will make difference as to how you connect. If running WXP or W2K, then after you plug in the computer to the network, you will need to do the following:

1. Since it has not been on a network before, you wiill need to logon as a local administrator

2. Right-mopuse click on My Network places ans select PROPERTIES.

3. Right-mouse click on the LOCAL AREA CONNECTION icon ans select PROPERTIES. Select the TCP/IP option, then select PROPERTIES. Use either the DHCP option or the Static IP option depending on what your network is using (check with your network administrator). Use the ADVANCED tab to configure any DNS or WINS options. Close back to the Local Area Connection Ico area.

4. Make sure that nothing is highlighted, then slect the Network Identification Option (this is also avaialble under the Advanced Tab in the pull-down menues). Follow the steps to add the system to the network. You will need to have permissions to be able to add a copmuter onto the domain. If you don't have those permissions, then you will need to have someone with those permissions add the system for you.

Wireless zero configuration is the feature of Windows XP that allows Windows to detect the available wireless networks and automatically connect to the most preferred wireless network.

It is enabled by the Wireless Zero Configuration service in Windows XP. It provides auto wireless network detection when you switch on the computer.
Follow the steps below to verify that the service is running:
1. Go to Start and right click My Computer. Select and click Manage.
2. Computer Management window will appear. Under Services and Applications, select Services.
3. Check for the service Wireless Zero Configuration. Make sure that it is started and that the startup type is set to automatic.
computer-management.jpg4. If it isn't, double-click the service. If the startup type is not set to automatic, click on the dropdown arrow and and change it to automatic. Click OK at last.
autostart-wireless-zero.jpgIf your wireless adapter driver does not support wireless auto onfiguration, you will notice the following:
- The network adapter does not appear as a wireless network adapter in Network Connections. It appears as a LAN adapter, similar to an Ethernet connection.
- The properties of the wireless connection do not have a Wireless Networks tab.
- You do not receive a Windows XP notification bar message indicating that wireless networks are available.
To get the most out of your Windows XP wireless experience, you should contact wireless adapter manufacturer to obtain the latest version of the drivers that support this XP feature.
If not, you must manually configure wireless network settings using the configuration software supplied with the wireless network adapter.

You may have a problem with your IP and DNS settings. Please use the instructions below

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).Click Properties. You will see a window like the one below. Please make sure that the settings are all set to automatic for your IP4 and/or IP6 connections.


If that doesn't work, please try to renew your ip settings.

This can be done with the following steps:
1. Open cmd.exe
Windows XP: Start - Run - cmd.exe
Vista/7: Window Button - type "cmd.exe" - Enter
2. Type "ipconfig/release"
3. Type "ipconfig/renew"
4. Wait for connection to establish.

Vista and xp network

  1. All computers should have installed and enabled file and printer sharing, which you can see and change in the properties of the network connection.
  2. All computers should have enabled file and printer sharing as an exception for the Windows firewall.
  3. Sometimes you need to install the IPX protocol on the network connection.

Vista Home Premium 64 bit. Iam getting error 80070005 stating it cannot search for windows updates and it encountered an unknown error. I am not a techie, just a grandma who uses the computer alot.

This error can occur for many reasons but generally assocated with IIS connection to a database. Seeing how your are a grandam and more than likely not connecting to anything and that your machine will not connect to windows update. I suspect you have a trogen, rootkit or some other malware. See if you can update your virus software and run a scan it may or may not detect anything. The worst case is that you will need to use your backup disks and re-install windows. You may need to get some onsite help with this. Your machine not being able to connect to either virsus update or windows update is always a dead give away that you have some form of malware infecting your PC.
