WLAN not seeing available networks (never mind connecting!) after clean reinstall of XP/Drivers from original discs. Device Manager says all is well but I cannot seem to turn the wireless utility on. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks. Geoff.

If you haven't got the wireless network icon in your system try, Try going to Services under control panel - administrator tools and starting the Windows Zero Configuration Service. You'll need to set it to automatic so that it's running when you restart

9" Inch Google Android 4.2.2 Allwinner A23 Tablet PC Dual Core WiFi 8GB UK how do i connect to my television?

You can try this and see if it works for you:

Connect to Wi-Fi networks Some of this information applies only to devices running Android 5.0 and higher. If your device is running 4.4 or lower, the Menu icon looks like this 01640868e1517a345806b8352772a19a6aa8. If your device is running 4.3 or lower, the Settings icon looks like this snp_2918920_en_v1.
You can connect to Wi-Fi networks with your device, as well as add networks you use often or remove networks you don't use any longer. You can also change the settings for saved Wi-Fi networks on your device.
Keep in mind that your device will remember networks you connect to, along with security details, and connect automatically when in range.

Turn on Wi-Fi and connect to a network

  1. Open your device's Settings menu snp_bee8810a5fcd80173673b4b15a1804eaee99_3529219_en_v0.
  2. Under "Wireless & networks," touch Wi-Fi.
  3. Touch the Wi-Fi switch to turn it to the On position.
  4. You'll see a list of saved and available networks.
    • Secured networks display a lock icon 9708aea66a4ca95cd2dda6f363c600366de9 and ask for a password to connect.
    • Your device will remember networks it connects to and automatically connect to them when in range.
    • You can forget a saved Wi-Fi network if you don't want your device to connect to it automatically.
  5. Touch a network name from the list of available networks to connect to it.
    • Android 5.0 or higher: If the saved network you want to connect to isn't showing up in the list of networks on your screen, touch the Menu icon e0c84b16c85d9e9f1f5eb1d0111d3421b872 in the top right corner of the screen. Touch Refresh to reload the list of networks. Touch Add network and enter the network's name (SSID) and other security details, if needed. Then touch Save.
  6. Once connected, your device will say "Connected" under the network name.
Once you've connected to a network, it will show up in your Saved networks list. If you have trouble connecting to Wi-Fi, try the following steps:

Nexus 7 tablet won't talk to XP computer

Hi, make sure that you have your Nexus screen on and passed any PIN or authentication screens, in other words, log in to it.

Then you should see the main directory on the shared drive.

Keep in mind that WinXP support has ended last year and vendors do not keep their drivers up to date for this anymore. So there might be problems.

Will not connect to wifi

  • Touch the Apps Menu button on the Home screen.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Choose Wireless & Networks.
  • Choose Wi-Fi Settings.
  • Ensure that Wi-Fi is on.
    When you see a green check mark next to the Wi-Fi option, Wi-Fi is on.
  • Choose a wireless network from the list.
    Available Wi-Fi networks appear at the bottom of the screen. When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding wireless access from your current location.
    Optionally, type the network password.
    Touch the Password text box to see the onscreen keyboard.
    Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long.
    Touch the Connect button.
    You should be immediately connected to the network. If not, try the password again.

    Need updated drivers. I just dug my old ViewPad 1000 out of storage and I can't find any of the drivers or SW for it. I am most interested in the networking drivers and the SW for the stylus (if it ever...

    Always get your drivers from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.

    If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

    If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

    This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

    There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

    Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

    I hope this helps.
