Hello, I hope this is the right place for this question: I have a strong, unsecured wireless signal and it offers to connect, goes through the motions, and then just doesn't, with no explanation. I also have a Windows Security Alert that it is blocking a program: XrxFTPLt. It wants to know if it should continue to block or unblock. Please tell me if these two have anything to do with each other and, if not, what I might do to get the wireless signal. Thank you!

XrxFTPLt.exe seems to be a program that connects a Xerox Scanner to the internet. Read this:

http://www.file.net/process/xrxftplt.exe.html

Whether or not this program is necessary or not will depend upon whether or not you are using the above mentioned scanner. I don't know if deletion of it will do anything to resolve your issue.

When you Right-Click on the little computer in your task tray a window will open up...Click on View Available Wireless Connections...Does it say that it is connected? Does it have a notice regarding "Limited or no Connectivity"? Have you tried to Repair the connection?

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

Yes, I've done that. The connection is available, excellent, and has a connect option. When I hit that, a little box comes up that says it's connecting. After a few minutes it goes away and the larger box remains, telling me that the connection is available, unsecured, and strong. It doesn't matter how many different days, times, etc. that I try it, it just doesn't connect. I had thought that maybe unblocking that other code might help, but I guess not. Thank you.

I don't know what to tell you outside of re-booting the cable modem and the router...That helps me from time to time when my computer says that I am connected but actually I am not...I even have to connect via a wired adapter staight from the cable modem every now and then...Once connected I can then hot-swap the wireless adapter and connect that way...I have a laptop so that is pretty easy to do...Desktops might require a little more work to do this...
