:thumbsup: First posting:

Hello to all:

I am using WinXP Pro SP2. I installed a Linksys USB Wireless Adapter
(WUSB54GS) using the latest drivers (12-20-04)and used Wireless
Zero Configuration to set up the network. I have the network listed in
my "Preferred network" list and all is working fine.

The problem is that if I select"View Wireless Networks" in the "Available networks:" none
are listed. Even if I do a refresh under the "Refresh networks list" it
seraches and them says "No wireless networks found inrange".

I have an "Excellent" signal strength at 54mbps.

I had a Linksysy PCI card in initially (WMP54G) which worked as well as
the new adapter and always showed the available networks before.

Thanks,

CTRX

Is your wireless router set to broadcast its ssid (which you do not want it to do)

Did you have this problem before you installed SP2?

Thanks to you both.

No SSID is off (disabled) and SP2 was already installed both with the PCI card and now with the USB device.

I would advise you to disable the wireless zero config and use the linksys configuration tool to setup the driver. Specify the SSID you wish to connect to and the WEP key and let linksys configure it for you.

Wireless Zero config is nothing but problems in my opinion
