Please make sure that youre wireless adapter is on to begin with. I say this as a precautionary measure cause most of the time, i see many cases at work with this simple mistake done. If there is a hardware swich, make sure it's on. IF Hardware switch is on, make sure wireless connection is enables. This can be checked if you go to Control panel>network conenctions>wireless lan (see if it's shaded or faded grey. That means it is not enabled).

Once you have done this, and it shoes that the wirelss LAN connection is up and running, do what S_n_A_k_E said. Check if the driver for the wireless adapter is having problems and reinstall if necessary. If even that is not the issue, then make sure that you havent accidentally MAC locked your notebook out of the network (yes, i've seen this happen before as well :D)

Alternatively, you might wanna check out if you're behind a systen firewall that doesnt allow connectivity or if in a coporate enviroment, make sure that your in your proper VLAN zone. Hope this helps.

I would guess that all the other wireless routers are broadcasting using the G wireless standard 802.11g and your router is only broadcasting using the newer N 802.11n standard. Your laptop only supports B/G. Check your settings on your router and either change it to G or dual G/N mode so your older laptop can find the network

The linkssys usb adapter does not connect automatically to the WLAn router. it always says "win xp manage the wlan" but this is not true


the problem may be caused by the installation of the usb adapter's WLAN software (WinXP already has a built-in WLAN). Ty uninstalling the adapter's WLAN monitor, unplug and replug the USB adapter to your computer and it will be installed automatically. Once installed, Go to Control Panel >> Network Connections >>Right click Wireless Network Connections and click View available wireless networks. Try manually connecting initially to the router and see if it will be automatic from then on.

Wireless card not detecting!!!!


I had simalar problems where I could not detect my wireless network even though I could get on the internet I could not see the other computer on my network. I finally after trying everyone else's advice which did not work, found a program called Network Magic. You can purchase it from www.purenetworks.com for $30.00. It took care of all of my network problems and even shows a nice map of how my network is setup and what computers are logged onto the network and even what software like Windows Xp or Windows Vista is on that computer. It will even generate daily logs if you want to show any problems with the network.
