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.

Check the specs for your desktop and make sure the USB protocol will work with the adapter. You didn't say how old the desktop was, but my guess would be that the adapter requires USB 2.0 and may not work with earlier types. Make sure your desktop meets that criteria.

Make sure the adapter is compatible with whatever operating system is installed on your desktop and that it is up to date.

If your desktop has a front side USB connector, try connecting the adapter to a port on the back of the machine instead.

Many adapters require the installation of software before connecting the adapter. Make sure you are following the installation sequence properly.

Computer not conecting to internet


If you have not installed the USB adapter driver and configured the wireless network , you need to do that to connect to the internet. Once you have cd and installed the driver , you need to enter Wireless access key or SID to set the adapter to connect .

Wireless adapter


Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

Belkin products are notorious for breaking down at a high rate. If you wanted to rule out your computer as the culprit, you could install the belking adapter on your laptop (disable the built-in one) and see if it still works. I would also suggest going here:

and typing in your product model # and downloading the latest firmware/software for it. As always, restart your computer.
