If your device can detect the wireless router and can connect to the wireless network, that means that there is no problem with the wireless adapter. You need to check if your broadband / internet modem is connected properly to your wireless router.

Cant access wireless network


Wireless zero configuration is the feature of Windows XP that allows Windows to detect the available wireless networks and automatically connect to the most preferred wireless network.

It is enabled by the Wireless Zero Configuration service in Windows XP. It provides auto wireless network detection when you switch on the computer.
Follow the steps below to verify that the service is running:
1. Go to Start and right click My Computer. Select and click Manage.
2. Computer Management window will appear. Under Services and Applications, select Services.
3. Check for the service Wireless Zero Configuration. Make sure that it is started and that the startup type is set to automatic.

autostart-wireless-zero.jpgIf your wireless adapter driver does not support wireless auto onfiguration, you will notice the following:
- The network adapter does not appear as a wireless network adapter in Network Connections. It appears as a LAN adapter, similar to an Ethernet connection.
- The properties of the wireless connection do not have a Wireless Networks tab.
- You do not receive a Windows XP notification bar message indicating that wireless networks are available.
To get the most out of your Windows XP wireless experience, you should contact wireless adapter manufacturer to obtain the latest version of the drivers that support this XP feature.
If not, you must manually configure wireless network settings using the configuration software supplied with the wireless network adapter.

Cannot link to wireless thompsoncontrollerinternet


it maybe a firewall blocking access or the secruity code 1) disable the firewall and see if it now connects 2) log into the router and goto the wireless section and remove the secruity now see if that will connect a useful tool to use, if you can copy onto the PC, http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php this will detect all the networks broadcasting - so you can now see if the adapter will detect your wireless network

My wireless adapter does not detect any reception from the router. i have another laptop at home that could easily detect reception from the router. what should i do?


since the laptop is connecting to the router and is having the internet access as well then clearly the problem is with the adapter or with the pc using the adapter.

Following steps can be considered :-
1)If the PC is using OS as windows XP then , click on start menu and then go to control panel and then open network connections from there.
2)Under network connections an option for wireless connection exist , right click on that option and then click on properties.
3)Under wireless network connection properties there are three tabs general , wireless network and advanced.
4)Left click on wireless network tab and check the box which says use windows to configure my wireless setting's and click OK at the bottom.
5)Then , Right click again on wireless network connection and then left click on view available wireless network.
6)List of available networks will be there , select the network you use and try connecting to it , if it gets connected then the internet access will be there.

I can't get it to work.


To view the wireless network connection dialog box, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, Run, and type ncpa.cpl, and then click Ok.
  2. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon, and then choose Properties. (Or you can right click the Wireless Network Connection icon and choose View Available Wireless Networks from the shortcut menu.)
  3. Click the Wireless Networks tab.
  4. Under Available networks, click the View Wireless Networks button.
From the wireless network dialog box, you can refresh the network list. This performs another scan of wireless networks within range. The wireless network connection dialog displays the following for each detected network. The following shows the new connection box.

When the wireless network adapter displays the detected networks, you'll able to select a wireless network name and attempt to connect to it. The antenna icon indicates an infrastructure mode wireless network. The icon that shows two wireless client computers indicates an ad hoc wireless connection.

The lock icon and the "Security-enabled wireless network" label indicate that the wireless network has security enabled. The gold lock means you need a network key in order for you to connect to a wireless network. If it's not security enabled, you'll be able to connect to the network without a network key.

Wireless connection


If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on.
Did you get the wireless hub?
Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected.
You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services
