Hardware.ID is missing warning

Im getting a Hardware.ID warning on my Dell Inspiron 1200 whenever I try to go into my Wireless-G Linksys program. It started when I loaded Windows XP Service Pack 3. I cant do a system restore back to before I uploaded SP3, and I have also tried to uninstall my Linksys Wireless-G adapter card but my computer says that it cannot find the program. Need help unsure of what else to do.

The Linksys might not be compatible with XP sp3. If it was working before, there is nothing wrong with your Linksys

    Dell Inspiron 1525 - No wired or wireless network

    I suspect the Vodafone wireless adapter software is controlling the Dell wireless adapter. Start> in the search box type CMD
    • Reset WINSOCK by typing netsh winsock reset catalog
    • Reset IPv4 TCP/IP by typing netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
    • Reset IPv6 TCP/IP by typing netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
    Next make sure the vodafone applcation is not running
    Check you are getting a ip from the router by Start> in the search box type CMD
    • ipconfig /all
    This will return a list of numbers - what you are looking for is a IP number for your wireless connection
    A very useful tool to use for wireless issues is xirrus, If you can copy the program onto the PC thats not working and install and run, this test if your adapter is working and also will display all the networks broadcasting in your area. Which will prove the hardware works.

    Linksys wireless card unable to access

    when you power on the wireless,its have some IP(like or something).

    Just you ping the ip from your local set up PC.(*don't forget that your local PC is on same network)

    If its ping properly then your wireless is good. otherwise problem is in wireless point

    Dell pc will not work with linksys router

    HI Boston
    I believe the wireless card that you have in your laptop is a dell wireless card.

    Here are the instructions on how to get your wireless working
    Start-All programs-dell wireless-dell wireless wlan card utility-open the window and on the uncheck let this tool manage your wireless.
    Please make sure that Enable radio is checked otherwise no wireless networks will be detected by the computer.
    Once that is done go to start control panel in the left hand side make sure classic view is what is there. Go to network connection and you would see wireless network connection. Right click and click on view available wireless networks.
    click on refresh network list if any of the networks are not seen.
    Still no go try to enable the radio of your wireless card by pressing fn+F2 and then try.

    if your getting limited or connectivity right click on wireless network connection go to properties, select on the top the tab wireless networks and remove your network from the preferred networks click on ok.

    now get back to view available networks and try to connect to your wireless network.

    make sure if there is a security on ur network you are aware of the ntework key and its case senstiive as well. otherwise ask linksys to give it to u.

    if your wireless says connected check the ip address and post it here . for finding ip address start-run-cmd-click on ok

    in the command window type ipconfig and post the ip address here.

    alternatively also try updating the wirless card from the site
    thank you do post your results and feedbacks if any

    Linksys wireless g notbook adapter

    From my experience with stubborn program removals, I go into regedit and search for all instances of the manufacturer name or related terms. Go to "Start", "run" and type "regedit" to enter the registry. Reboot system after changes are made. Have access to back-up easily available (how you do that is up to you). I delete those registery references. This has happened many times when I have uninstalled programs. That has typically corrected the problem. NOTE: please do this carefully, back-up the registry prior to monkeying with it. If you are not comfortable doing this then you are stuck or will need to take it to someone who knows.
