Well, what you do is install any network drivers, for your WiFi adapter, then Install the software for your WiFi Card. Now your WiFi Router, has a Name.. an SSID, this is what you will "See" when you search for a network. Also it may have a WEP/WAP key... or "password" you need to know this. You should have all this info from when you installed the router. Now when you try to connect to the network, you choose the SSID & when asked enter your Key (Password/number) and you will be able to access the network. if there is none you just go straight through. This is done either through the Windows WiFi or the makers installed software.. it makes no difference really. If you use proprietary software you must turn off windows wifi manager.

You mentioned that you have Windows XP SP1... You need to install at least SP2 or even SP3 for this adapter to work. If this computer doesn't have internet access at all, then you can usually get SP2 or SP3 on a disc for free from Microsoft.

My computer died we redid widows xp disk and it came back now i dont have wireless how do i get it back


Hi, you will need to reinstall the wireless card drivers, if this came with wireless as standard you should be able to download the drivers from the manufacturers support website, if it was added later on then it should have came with an install disc with the drivers on it.

Hope this helps

I have F5D7234-4V1 with insight internet connection and i have win-xp laptop , ERROR MESSAGE - (windows cannot configured wireless ) tell me what to do - But unable to start WZC on my computer


If you want to use Windows Wireless Zero Configuration to manage the wireless network, you will need to have Windows XP with service pack 2 as a minimum.

With Windows XP and SP2, you will need a Microsoft update for WPA2 that can be obtained from:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/893357/en-us

After installation you will need to use the Windows Zero Config wireless configuration in the control panel to configure the adapter. WPA2 should now be available and work correctly.

Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and Windows Vista offer support for WPA2 without additional updates.

Windows cannot configure this wireless network


What OS are you running? XP? Most wireless networks are now using the WPA protocol and computers with XP that are not updated at least to SP2 will not connect to these networks even though you can see them available. I would go ahead and updated to the latest SP3 (Service Pack 3). I cant really be more helpful without knowing the OS (operating system).

Not detecting Wireless Adapter


Reinstall the wireless adapter driver, if need download a copy from www.dell.com use the Service Tag number (its printed on a label on the bottom of the laptop) to get the correct model laptop drivers.
Use another computer to get on the Internet.
You could use the Restore function, select a date before you installed SP2, then download the driver before you install the SP2.
Please note, you should be installing SP3 not SP2.

I cannot creat a wireless network


What OS are you running? If XP:



There are two ways to configure your wireless router: using Windows Connect Now and manually.

• If you don't have a router that supports Windows Connect Now, you need to manually configure your router:
1.
Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, temporarily connect your computer to one of the wired network ports on your wireless router (any port that isnt labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN).
2.
Turn your computer on; it will automatically connect to your router.
3.
Open Microsoft Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router, as described in your router's instruction manual.
4.
Create a password if a prompt appears. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router.

Here is the general login user and passwords

Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three items:
Set your wireless network name (known as the SSID) to something unique that does not identify your name or address.
Enable Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) encryption to help prevent uninvited guests from connecting to your wireless network.
Note: We don't recommend using WEP. WPA-2 is more secure. If you try WPA-2 and it doesn’t work, we recommend that you upgrade your network adapter to one that works with WPA-2.
Set your administrative password to prevent others from configuring your router.
The exact steps you follow will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting (SSID, WEP, and administrative password), be sure you click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes.
Note: The pictures in this section show Linksys wireless equipment. Equipment from other manufacturers will vary in appearance. For example, to save your settings in Linksys, you click Save Settings. Other equipment may have a different display, and you may have to click Apply or OK.
SSID or naming your networkA service set identifier, or SSID, identifies your network. Choose a unique name that you're confident none of your neighbors will use, but don't specify your name or your address. This is not a security tool, so you don't need to make the SSID complex.


Help prevent uninvited guests from connecting to your wireless network. To learn how, read Implement WPA2-Personal wireless security on a Windows XP SP2-based computer.


Administrative passwordThe last configuration change you should make is to the administrative password. Just like any other password, the administrative password should not be a word you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings.


Connect your computers and devicesIf your computer does not have wireless network support built in, you can install a wired or a wireless network adapter. Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter and might prompt you to insert the CD that came with it. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is not required for wireless networking, but it does make setting one up much easier. SP2 also helps protect you against viruses, worms, and other Internet intruders. To install SP2, visit Microsoft Update. The steps below apply only if you're using SP2. Windows XP will show an icon with a notification that says it has found wireless networks.


To connect your computer to your wireless network
1.
Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks


2.
The Wireless Network Connection window appears and displays your wireless network listed with the SSID you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower right corner.


3. Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.


Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key—click Cancel and return to step 3.



After you're connected, you can close the Wireless Network Connection window. Now you're ready to browse the Web wirelessly. You can also create a wireless network in your home that connects your computers, printers, cameras, games, and other accessories for easy access and enjoyment.
