What are you using Internet Explorer? Anyway I would try using FireFox or some other browser to see if they can complete the downloads.Then if a different browser works the one you are using is faulty and needs to be reinstalled or use the other one as default.The zero configurator is to help you setup and find your wireless conections your router will also have a wireless configutator then the one that windows comes with make sure you know which one you are using.Go to network connections and internet connections, click, then right click on wireless connection,then properties and you should have a wireless tab check to see if the box that says use windows to configure my wireless conections is checked if you want windows to do it. If neither browser finishes downloads redo wireless setup.But I really think it is the browser.Hope you understand what I am trying to say.

Another application is controlling the wireless adapter

I believe you are using WINDOWS XP.
In case of windows XP, there might be 2 different wireless utilities can control your wireless adapter.
First utility is the manufacturer's utility. If you have Dell wireless adapter then you can use Dell utility to connect to the network.
Another utility is Window's utility. You are getting the error message in this utility because your computer is using another utility.
To use window's utility you will need to start the " wireless zero configuration ".

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast

Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.
To secure your router with a login password and wireless security, please follow my instructions - click on this link :-

It says i am connected to wi fi internet but cannot browse it says see article 871122 microsoft knowledge base on please help do i need to download something.

1.) Pls. use the software for your wi fi adapter, connected on desktop to connect to the wireless lan.
2.) microsoft: This behavior occurs for several reasons. Some computer and hardware manufacturers provide their own configuration software that replaces the Wireless Zero Configuration service that is provided in Windows. In that case, you must use the software that is provided by the manufacturer to configure your wireless network. If you want to use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard or the View Available Wireless Networks feature to configure your wireless device, see the documentation that came with your computer or with your wireless network card. Use this documentation to determine whether you can use the Wireless Zero Configuration service to configure your wireless network. Sometimes, you cannot use the Windows functionality.

If your computer or your wireless network adapter did not come with its own wireless network software, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. Click Network Connections.
  3. In Network Connections, click to select your wireless connection, and then click Change settings of this connection.
  4. On the Wireless Networks tab, click to select the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.

To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
  2. Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
  3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
  4. In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.

Linksys wireless-g broadband router

1. On your computer, open IE and type
2. By default there is no username and the password is admin.
3. Once you're in, set Internet connection type to what your ISP requires to have. If you have cable ISP usually it is just set to Automatic configuration-DHCP. If you have DSL ISP, it usually uses PPPoE.
4. But verify it with your ISP.
5. Whatever changes you do on that page, do not forget to click "Save Settings" which can be found at the bottom of the page.

Can't Connect to wireless router

First, if you are using XP, and installed the Dlink Adapter Utility on your computer, you need to turn off the Windows Zero Wireless Configuration Utility in the Services Panel.. (it is not a good idea to run both the Proprietary Utility (Dlink) AND the Windows Utility..

If you did not install this Dlink Utilty, Ignore the following!

Start > Run > services.msc (ok)

Services Window pops up.

Scroll down to the Windows Zero Wireless Configuration and Disable it.

Now, try to connect again and see if the password box comes up!

BTW: you need to make sure that the type of Encryption you setup on the router is compatible with your card. In other words, make sure that if you enabled WAP that the card supports it...
