I've been disinfecting my home PC, that my daughter managed to infect with every bug imaginable. It appears to be disinfected (helped along by RichieUK - one of the tech expert posters here - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic101070.html), but even though I have normal connectivity with the LAN wire that I ran from my wireless modem, I can't get wireless connectivity. I have other computers in the house connected wirelessly, that are not having any problems...so I know it's in the computer, and not the modem. I've run the WinsockXPFix executable that someone recommended, but it failed to remedy my problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance, Pat

Try these two programs for your connection issues:

1) DialAFix: http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix#Standard_version
2) WinSockFix: http://tntmax.com/component/option,com_rem...derby,2/page,2/

I tried those two, but nothing changed. Any other suggestions?

Try connecting through the router with a wire before trying the wireless connection.
Try resetting the wireless router (without any security) to obtain connectivity - then put the security back on afterwards
Try deleting your network connections, then your network device, then reboot and let Windows re-detect everything. Then setup the new connection to see if you can achieve connectivity.

I'm already connected through the modem with a LAN wire. I know I've got wireless connectivity from the modem (it's a 2-Wire wireless modem...there is no router), because I've got other computers connected wirelessly to it. How do I go about deleting my network connections and network device?

i have a similar problem. i upgraded my wireless connection drivers and now i cant connect wireless. all of the other laptop can. i did a full restore on my laptop and i still cant connect. i can see the wireless signals but i cannot connect.

i think that it might be something wrong with my network adapters
