Question about Motorola 2.4GHz Wireless G 802.11g/b (wpci810g)

2 Answers


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.

My dell inspiron 1545 cannot connect to internet as it says i have no network adapters installed. How do i do this

Hi Anon
Your laptop should come with an Ethernet connection as well as wireless connections, try making a wired connection via your Ethernet port, these are usually more reliable than wireless connections.
When I have experienced these sort of problems it is usually because of a missing driver.
Check that you have the proper drivers for your internet connections installed, these should come on a disk that is supplied with your laptop.
Finally check this link for Microsoft's official network trouble shooter.

First try to determine whether you can connect to the Internet You should first try to determine whether you can connect to the Internet. If you can connect, the error message is obviously incorrect. If that is the case, you might want to disable the error message. To disable the error message, follow these steps.
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type ncpa.cpl, and then press ENTER. The Network Connections dialog box opens.
  3. Double-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.
  4. On the General tab, click to clear the Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity check box.
  5. Click OK, and then click Close.

Check for other causes and solutionsIf you cannot connect to the Internet, you have to find the reason. Realize that the reason may not be with your computer, but may be an issue with your Internet service provider (ISP) or with issues on the network at your work. Therefore, for some of these solutions, you might need help from your ISP, or, if your computer is part of a network at work, you may have to ask your network administrator for help. Contact your ISP serviceIf you use an ISP to connect to the Internet, before you go any further, first contact your ISP to see whether it is experiencing any problems. If the ISP has problems, wait until the problems are resolved before you continue to troubleshoot. Check the hardware devicesIf you still cannot connect to the Internet after you have confirmation that your ISP is not experiencing any problems, manually check the hardware devices on your small office network or your home network for problems. For example, if a hub, router, modem, or access point is installed on your network, check that it is connected correctly, and that it is turned on and functioning properly. The solution might be as simple as turning on or restarting a hardware device, and then restarting your computer. For more specific troubleshooting information about the hardware devices that you are using, refer to the hardware documentation for your devices. Run the Network Diagnotics tool If checking and restarting your hardware device did not resolve the issue, your computer may have a networking problem. For example, your computer may not have an IP address or your TCP/IP settings may be corrupted.

There are tools available in Windows XP that you can use to help you diagnose and troubleshoot networking problems. To use the Network Diagnostics tool to determine the source of the issue, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
  2. Under Pick a task, click the link to Use Tools to view your computer information and diagnose problems, and then click Network Diagnostics in the list on the left.
  3. Click Scan your system. The Network Diagnostics tool collects configuration information and performs automated troubleshooting of the network connection.
  4. When the process is complete, look for any items that are marked "FAILED" in red.

    Note If you do not see any categories that failed, please see the "Additional troubleshooting information" section for more information about how to troubleshoot network problems.
  5. Expand a category to view the testing results. For example, to check the results for TCP/IP settings, expand the Network Adapters section. Then, check whether a network adapter has failed.
  6. You can use that information to try to resolve the issue yourself, or you can provide the information to your network administrator for help. If you are not sure how to use the results from the Network Diagnostics tool to resolve the issue, see the "Next steps" section for help.
Additional troubleshooting information for TCP/IP issues For more information about how to troubleshoot TCP/IP networking problems and use the Network Diagnostics tool, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 314067 ( ) How to troubleshoot TCP/IP connectivity with Windows XP For more information about how to troubleshoot home networking in Windows XP, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 308007 ( ) How to troubleshoot home networking in Windows XP If the Network Diagnostics tool did not help you resolve the issue, try the next solution "Check the hardware device" in this article for help.
Check the network adapter on your computerIf you did not find a resolution by using the Network Diagnostics tool, check the network adapter on your computer to make sure that it is enabled. If it is enabled, you can sometimes solve connection problems by disabling and then re-enabling the adapter. If you are not sure how to check the network adapter, check the help that is provided with the network adapter.
Check your Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) serverIf the network adapter is working correctly, the next thing to check is whether your DHCP server is down or is not available on the network.

To troubleshoot issues with the DHCP server, it is important to know where the DHCP server is located. If you are not sure, it is probably hosted by your ISP (if you use an ISP), on another computer (if you are on a work network), or on a router (on your small office network or home network). Use the following suggestions, depending on the network setup:
  • If you use an ISP

    If you have not already done this, contact the ISP to see whether they are experiencing any problems. If they are, wait until their problems are resolved. If the ISP is not experiencing any problems, this is probably not the problem that is causing the issue.
  • If you are on a work network

    On a work network, the network administrator probably maintains the DHCP server and should be able to tell you if the server is down or has problems. Let them know that you have problems with your Internet connection, and see whether they can help you. If you do not have a network administrator or other support person to contact for help, you can use the Microsoft Customer Support Services Web site to find other solutions to your problem. See the "Next steps" section for more information.
  • If you have a router on your small office network or home network

    If you have a router on your small office network or home network, then the DHCP server might be hosted on the router. If you have not already done this, check that the router is working correctly. For example, you can check whether the router is turned on and that the wires are connected correctly. You might have to check the router documentation for troubleshooting help if you are not sure what to do, or contact the person who set up the network for help.
Check your Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) keyIf your computer uses a wireless network, you may be required to supply a WEP key. (A WEP key is a network security key that is used to help protect your wireless network.) If you supply an incorrect key, or if you do not have a WEP key set, you will be unable to connect to the network. Therefore, make sure that you have the correct WEP key if it is required. For more information, see the help provided with your wireless network device or ask the person who set up the wireless network for help.

If these troubleshooting steps did not help, see the "Next Steps" section for other sources that may help you resolve your problem.

Basic question but have you tried restarting the computer? Some networking issues are resolved by a simple restart.

Otherwise can you open a command prompt (click the Start button and type cmd) and run the following command:

ipconfig /all

You should see an IPv4 or IP address in the list. Can you confirm that it starts with 192.168.x.x? Most home IP addresses will have this format. Do not provide your full IP address as this could be a security risk.
