Question about Microsoft Ethernet MN-120 Network Adapter

1 Answer

Disconnected wireless When I first boot up my systems, I get a good connection with my wireless. After a short time I loose connection. After that, I can't get a connection. Even if I put the lap top within 5 ft of the base station. I've removed all security settings on the base station and laptop. I've changed channels and reinstall the software on both computers. Nothing helps. What now? I seen this post by someone else, but I need a solution for vista, not XP.

Hi dear

try this

  1. Before you attempt to use any Wi-Fi network, find out what the SSID, Channel, Mode and WEP key are. Some Wi-Fi locations do not require a WEP key. Many Wi-Fi providers have this information on their web site or when you purchase access you will be provided the information.
  2. Ensure you have a firewall program installed and running. This will protect your data.
  3. Start up your laptop and once booted, look for the Wi-Fi network icon in the bottom right of the screen.
  4. Click on the Wifi Connection icon on bottom right of screen and you should see a window that indicates connection, strength and duration. Click on the Properties tab.

  5. disconnected wireless - wirelessnetworkscreenbl.jpg

  6. The next window will show the type of networking card installed. Click on the Wireless Networks tab.

  8. Once the Wireless Network Connection Properties window is open you will have two options depending on how you set up your laptop.
    • If you do not see any networks listed in Preferred or Available networks, you will have to manually add the SSID. Click on Add. You will have to enter the SSID and WEP key (if required). Click OK and you should then see the network you just added in the Available networks box.

    • If you see the correct SSID showing in the Available Networks, then you need to click on Configure in order to enter the WEP key if that is required.


    • In the next window, enter the SSID for the Wi-Fi network you want to access. Make sure you do not have CAPS lock or NUM lock while entering the information. If a network key is required, click on "Data Encryption and then enter the Network key you have been provided with. Again make sure you do not have CAPS or NUM lock on. Click OK when entered. If you have entered the key incorrectly a message will pop up and you will nedisconnected wireless - fccfda9.jpgter the key.

    • Next go to Start - and where it says Connect To click on that and you should see choices like in the graphic below. Click on Wirelessdisconnected wireless - 34b0a7b.jpgonnection and it should work.

There are occasions when the connection doesn't work, in these cases check your firewall software and make sure it allows you to connect to the Wi-Fi network. To check this, disable your firewall software and check the connection again. If you can connect with the firewall program disabled, you change your settings. If your firewall program is not the problem check the SSID and WEP key information that you entered. Both of these are case sensitive. If you had obtained SSID information from the Internet, check with someone in the establishment to see if the SSID has been changed.

oke post in me back

i hope this usefull for you


thanks

Everytime my wife's iphone connects to our home network, my laptop looses the internet connection and goes to a local connection only. I have to disconnect and reconnect and everything works fine.


I find that when it comes to iphones and home wireless networks, that using 64bit encryption is the best. I'm not sure what you are using now, but give this a try.
