Re: No association with access point


is the access point WEP enabled? or is it public? as long as you are able to detect the access point, try and edit your profile to which you can connect.

if it is a WEP enabled access point, you should have a passphrase key to access it.

if its public...
try and use this...

hope this helps

I hooked up my D'link to modem and computer and connection is good. But i can't find it when i search on laptop wireless connection. I think you need i driver but i can't find one. Thank You

The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet

These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.


4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center

To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

Problems making wireless connection using Intel ProSet Wireless. It doesn't seem to recognize me anymore. When I try to connect I get a popup for General Settings with Profile Name and Wireless Network...

  1. uninstall everything,delete all previous settings files. clean the regestry with a reg cleaner or manually then restart.

         Then try installing it and create new settings. Just before you clean everything, 
         I suggest you take notes of all the values of all the fields so that you can re- create.
          2. get the latest drivers, if you can.

If you still have trouble, go to the vendor.

WUSB54GC model wireless adapter won't connect after months of use

Instead of using the passphrase use the wep key 1 that you created on the router page when you generate it using the passphrase.

Then when you try to connect using the linksys wireless monitor just leave the passphrase blank and type in the wep key1 box the key that I mentioned earlier.

No association with access point

Another thing to check, (especially if you have installed SP2 in the midst of this process of trying to get the Linksys WPC54G drivers  installed).  
In Device Manager, check under the "network adapters" category and see if there's any "other" things with a yellow question mark - I clicked one of those, had it search for the new driver, and after a few minutes it eventually installed a WPC54G driver and placed it in the "Network Adapters" category (I had already run the drivers install from Linksys, Broadcom, many times over - de-installing each time to try another version).
Funny thing about it, when I hit "update" or whatever on that yellow question mark icon - it had given me no clue whatsoever that it was a wireless adapter driver that it was updating.  
Hope this helps.

Not detecting any wireless networks

You have not mentioned having a wireless router or access point to serve as the hub on an infrastructure network. I you have a router please let me know -- the instructions for the solution changes.

The following is an article to create an ad hoc network between wireless cards without a wireless access point or a router. If you ignore the steps about connecting to the internet with a wired connection and the internet sharing instructions. This will allow your machines with wireless adapters to communicate with each other (assuming the operate on a common band). The article goes on to indicate one machine with a wired connection can act as the "router" for the other two when it is on to allow them share internet access with the wired machine (the wired machine also needs a wireless card for this to work).
