Question about LanReady LA1000+ Network Adapter
Hi, I have a problem between a Desktop and Laptop. Sometimes if my Laptop's WiFi isn't working, meaning finding any Networks I hook it up to my dads Desktop through a LAN Cable. His Desktop is a 2007 HP Pavilion a133On running Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition, My laptop is a IBM ThinkPad T40 running Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic. He still uses Dial-Up and Like I said if my network isn't working right I hook it up to the Desktop. It was working fine last month, and all I had to do was plug the LAN cable in and I was connected. Now When I plug it in today, My laptop detects the Desktop but the Desktop don't detect my Laptop. On the Desktop it shows the LAN Connection with a yellow ! icon saying "Limited or no connectivity" and on my laptop the icon just shows two computer monitors saying "Unidentified network" If I was connected it would show a Earth Ball icon that is letting me know I'm on the internet.
I don't know if it has something to do with Windows XP Service Pack 3 or not because Last month it worked and Service Pack 2 was on it. But on my old desktop I use to have, had Service Pack 3 and I connected my laptop and it worked fine.
Hello: What I would say is: go to microsoft update and make sure you have all the updates for your OS.
Then; read the posting (below) from someone who had the same issue:

We cannot - even ping - the network addresses after installing - so it was an uninstall and do a system restore to get to the original good working state of the clients.
Microsoft needs to come up with a patch to fix this as we are seeing more and more networked clients having these connection and sharing problems."
Do you understand the above?
Let me know if you do not know how to unistall SP3 and do a Restore...
