Yes, XP Pro SP2 tends to give a network or browsing issue. Check proxy server settings as well or Apply the DNS staticly to the Wireless Network Adapter's TCP/IP properties and see what happens???

After installing my lexmark 7675 my laptop cannot access the wireless network


Wireless communication issues could be due to wireless signal quality, signal interference, firewall, etc. Make sure your printer is positioned where it receives excellent wireless signal strength (avoid physical obstructions whenever possible) and away from appliances which emit wireless signals (e.g. microwave ovens, cordless telephones, baby monitors, and other wireless electronics) that may cause interference. Make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.

You may also refer to these articles from the Lexmark website to identify and rectify this problem:

I hope this helps.

Very low signal


Given that you have a '802.11B' device, the maximum speed will be 11 Mbps.

While your wireless router is communicating at that speed to your computer, the router is communicating with your ISP at a much-lower speed, depending on how much you pay per month to your ISP for the agreed-upon level of service, e.g., "ADSL-lite" or "High-Speed".

So, unless you pay more per month to your ISP, the "bottleneck" will be between your ISP and your router, *NOT* between your router and your wireless adapter.

Now, as to the "low signal strength", that's a matter of the distance between the router and your computer, and the number and composition of the walls and ceilings in the middle.

If you move your computer closer to the router, the signal-strength should become "good" or "excellent".

Wireless issues with my Dell XPS/Dimension One desktop


Even if it's a new Dell, you may need to update either the drivers for the wireless card or the BIOS.

Also, verify which protocol your Dell is set to use (i.e. 802.11g, 802.11b, auto-select, etc.). Dell may have fixed to to a slower protocol for compatibility.

WIRELESS NETWORKING


There are several problems reported that may cause disconnection. First is the hiding of the SSID (wireless network name) and enabling WEP or WPA encryption. The recommended solution for that is to unhide the SSID in the router configuration.

Second is that there are more and more wireless devices and occasionally interference occurs on a single channel (even from non computer devices like wireless phones. As routers are often set to channel 6 you may be competing for radio communications with your neighbors. The recommendation is to switch the router to either channel 1 or 11. If your first choice does not work try the other.

Wireless internet conecction


This may be a stupid question. However there are three different standards that are used for Wireless communications that I currently know of A, B, and G. This device communicates using the G standard if I have researched it correctly on the web. Out of curiosity what is the model of the wireless cards that were put in desktop computers -- if they do not operate using the G standard that may be why they will not communicate. Other problems may be optional security settings such as encryption (not identified on for the computer's adapter) or MAC addresses that were not loaded into the router to permit communications.
