While the error popups are going on--btw, my son counted--there were over 100! and I had no internet connection. . .
I rightclicked the single monitor picture in the taskbar (the yellow popup window calls it the wireless network connection)
I clicked "view available wireless networks". A window comes up saying Wireless network connection 3", and a box that says "Chose a wirelss network"
Inside the box it tells me windows cannot configure this wireless conection . . .change advanced settings. (which is a choice to click on lefthand of window. This opens a new box titled Wirelss connection3 porperties. There are 3 tabs, General, Wireless networks, and Advanced. I chose the wirelss networks tab, and at the top, there is an unchecked box that says,
"Use windows to configure my wirelss network settings" I check that and the bottom half of the window undims itself. I click okay, and then in the taskbar, the wirelss connection monitor gets a yellow pop up that says one or more wirelss networks are in range of this computer, click this message to connect" and I am connected.
This is all while I am in the same room as the router is in. When i move the laptop back to the office it's supposed to be in, I get the error pop ups, and when I do the exact same thing as I described above, when I open the "wireless connection 3 properties", there are only two tabs! The wireless connection tab is not there!! (so I can't connect in that room!) CRAZY!
As for double-clcicking the application hangs, by that do you mean the error pop ups? I tried that and nothing happened-- I right clicked, left clicked, tapped the keypead, etc--nothing, just the cascading popups.
Here is a screenshot of the error codes and the properties box:
(hmm I could copy the screenshot from paint, but it won't let me paste here--when i rightclick, only undo and , delete and select all are highlighted)
