Question about Network & Wireless Adapters
I hv a Belkin FD57231-4 wireless router which hv been connected to 2 laptops (wireless) and a desktop (wired) with no problem at all. Recently i got another desktop with winxp sp2, I'm trying to use a usb wireless adapter which i got from my friend (i can't find the brand or model number, it's only show REACH USB WLAN on it. I hd installed the usb wireless adapter correctly, and it did showed up in my icon tray and also hv been able to detect few wirelss network nearby, including my network. The problem is, when i click to connect to my network, it will keep connecting "pls wait while connecting to network" for abt 30 seconds and the screen come back to the available networks window, as if nothing happen. B4 using this usb wireless adapter, i can connect to router/internet by cable with no problem at all. Fyi, i hd tried the following:
- set to obtain an ip address automatically (cannot work)
- set my own ip address (also cannot work)
- enable DHCP in router
- set the wireless mode to "54-AUTO" (if this is what ppl said abt 54mbps)
- clear everything in my temp internet file, im pretty sure there's no spyware or malware in this pc.
Pls help as i really hv no idea how to connect my pc to router/internet by using this wireless adapter, thanks in advance for yr adv!
Check and see if this setup guide matches your device?
If it does we can probably search for more information.
Did you configure your router using WEP, WPA security (using passphrases) on your router?
Did you enable MAC address checking on your router?

ok sir i got it if the wireless network is detected then try and connect and the if it doesnt connect try and connect in safe mode with networking sometimes wireless doesnt work in safe mode,but still try that,uninstall and reinstall the wireless driver for adaptor and then open the gui page(router page with the default gateway page and then change the wireless channels and also turn off the firewall,and from the start,all programme turn on the wireless adaptor utility and then start the services of wireless zero configuration from services.msc.....then if it is connected with the ehternet cable,then what u can do is that go to the router page and then also put a check in the let the windows controll the wireless network......and it will definately work and if it doesnt work then reinstall the operating system......good luck...
if it is a little bit also helpful pls.rate this soultion for me pls.....
