Hey guys,
I have just reformatted my computer recently and installed Windows XP MCE. I have a Treadnet wireless USB stick, and, it was working fine before, but, when i reformatted, i obviously lost the drivers. I found the CD for it, installed it, it all installed fine, but now whenever i goto connect i get the limited or no connectivity message. This is just an isolated problem though, we have 3 laptops aswell, all wireless, and they work no problem. I have tried resetting the wireless router, and also uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers for the wireless reciever. Any help or ideas would be greatly appruciated.

Oh, also, my ethernet card never installed, so, i can't even connect that way and install the newest wireless driver

Do you have another wireless USB device that you can try in this computer? How about trying the Treadnet wireless USB device in another computer. That'll help determine if it's a computer problem or a problem with the USB device.

You can download the drivers for your ethernet card from the support website for the manufacturer of your computer.

I hooked the USB reciever into my old laptop and it worked flawlessly. My computer is an HP SR5130NX, it came with vista, i duel booted XP and vista for awhile and everything was working fine with XP, then my sister was online and got a virus that was screwing with everything, and insted of screwing around with it, i just figured i'd reinstall XP. So, il ost all my drivers, and XP dosn't have the driver pack for XP...it only gives me a vista option

hi innocentman

i found this for you hope it help`s you or someone else in the future

i have now fixed the problem. it seems there is a bug in the SP2 service pack which effects some computers and not others.

i managed to fix the problem by going to this link

www.pchell.com/support/limitedconnectivity.shtml

under "what steps can i take to fix this problem" download the zip file which includes the microsoft patch and another patch which comes with simple instructions.
i followed this advice and my wifes laptop is running fine thank god.
