Question about Motorola 2.4GHz Wireless G 802.11g/b (wpci810g)
I have been troubleshooting a pc with xp home installed. No matter what I try I cannot connect to the internet via my wireless router. I have the current xp updates, and I have searched MS's website for help for two weeks and tried all the recommendations that they said...still not connected. I have uninstalled the Motorola card and I have two wireless usb adapters and I can put the usb adapters into a pc next to this xp home one and they work fine. But the second I put it into the xp home machine it tries to load the drivers and says "driver has a problem, windows cannot install the hardware for this device." I tried intalling a 10/100 land card and it wouldn't connect to the internet that way either.... AN OPERATING SYSTEM PROBLEM OR EITHER A MOBO ?? I tried what MS said about this error and it still doesnt work. I have decided that I must have some kind of corruption in the hash or registry that is causing this mess. I am two seconds away from reformating the HDD and installing XP PRO OR VISTA and TAKING A HAMMER TO this ****. I have XP Pro at work and never have any troubles...I also was told that xp home automatically used WEP so I configured my router for WEP and put in the wep into all my pc's on my network so the network name and the wep are all the same...I also configured my router to the MAC ADDRESSES OF EACH PC IN MY NETWORK and STILL CANNOT GET ONLINE ON THIS COMPUTER!!! I do not have the software that came with this pc, as it was a gift and I cannot reinstall the xp home as I dont have the disk...ANY IDEAS BEFORE I GET OUT THE HAMMER WOULD BE APPRECIATED VERY MUCH....
One suggestion is to connect first, then implement the security. That way you are not troubleshooting WEP configurations when you haven't even connected yet.
