Have you tried looking in your device manager to see if all is ok in there. If your PCMCIA port isn't working maybe it can be fixed from the device manager. Could just need the driver updated. I hope this problem works out asap for you.

Cannot get wifi using Anatel 802.11 a/b/g mini pci card to see any access points. Reloaded Xp; all drivers installed (no unknown device drivers); FN+F5 key does nothing; replaced wifi card - same symptoms;...

2 things, did your Wi-Fi pci-card come with laptop or did you bought it later, if its the later it could be a authorizing issue, or else it could be the router misconfigured for the computer like the new routers with WPA2 protocols doesnt "seeing" the old b or g cards in laptops

Can I connect a wireless capable printer to my wifi laptop without a router? If so how? Not having much luck on my own. Thanks for any help you can give me.

You can create what is called a 'peer to peer' network. You will have to be disconnected from the internet for this to work and it has limited distance as your PC acts like a router. It would be much much easier to plug it in with a USB cable.
However if you wish to achieve this then depending on your operating system, set up a home or small office network, select that it is not going to be connected to the internet and select the 'peer to peer' option. Name it something you will remember, then go to your HP printer and select the wireless access point that you just created on your laptop. You should now be able to use it within a limited range.
Another option is to get a 'mini router' which plugs directly into your printer and broadcasts a signal which your laptop can pick up, it has a much greater range, but will obviously cost you money.
Hope this helps

Apple Extreme Network not picked up by Windows XP laptop.

it's a matter of who did what with whom and when they did it.

Vista came along when Apple and Microsoft had agreed to allow each other OS's to operate in each other's platforms with Intel performing the Core Duo marriage, but XP is the child from a previous generation when the two did not get along, though they knew of each other.

I know some actual marriages like that.

Didn't mean to be flippant, but XP is better than Vista in some respects and worse in this case.

Wireless signal keeps dropping/dissapearing

Check my tip
Using Router and Wlan adapter from different brand (Dynex + Belkin) is sometime calling for trouble: you must configure both to be sure to be on same standard (or change Both).
I'm using Netgear + Belkin and tune is not easy
On router config check radio power, reduce the used standard (B/G A/N) to the only one used by Belkin adapter (N).
Be sure you removed Windows zero wireless configuration (= use windows to manage my connection= OFF)
edit your belking wireless networking utility to automatic reconnect:

try downgrading to G standard from router side
Check your network connection plugging your laptop to router via lan cable.and check network params (DHCP DNS etc.).
Then check wlan connection near router, if you experience wlan drops only when far from router, find any possible interferences source (Microwave, cordless, remote) remove it or be ware you cannot have wlan when your wave is working.

Pcmcia dont work

Unplug the card from the slot and reboot your laptop without it in there. After your computer boots back up, plug your card back in and it should recognize it again.

Wireless internet service


Rather than "...purchase a wireless card..." since "...have no external slot..." and "...have a built in wireless card..." why not consider a WiFi AP/Router that can either serve as Access Point, Router, Bridge. Repeater (such as a LinkSys WRT54G). Such a unit if configured right will work in either a wired or wireless environment.

Perhaps your foremost concern should be; will there be a wireless Internet Provider/service within the immediate vicinity of the hotel. This of course depends on the location (country) and available service. In some countries/locations, the wireless ISP Provider bundles in their package the needed hardware. It is almost a rarity nowadays for a hotel not to have some sort of Internet Access even if just a dial-up. They may not share it with guests but most likely they are capable.

Alternately, you can try looking around for a public Internet Cafe and negotiate for a temporary WiFi access while staying in that location.

In some extreme case where the ISP requires use of a PCMCIA card and the laptop does not have such bus/feature or port, there are on the market an adapter/ converter that plugs to your USB port and the other ends will accept a standard PCMCIA card. Some examples of this device may be found here, here and here. The last was specifically designed for Broadband applications as well as Bluetooth.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up[ or should you be in need of further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
