Greetings Linda Bowliing,

And welcome to the confusing and sometimes painful world of Wi-Fi. Several things
can cause the issue to which you're referring to, but don't let this be intimidating.

The first solution should be to contact the Manufacturer of the wireless product and
ask them what they recommend. You may also install a different wireless card to
confirm that your wireless card is Not the issue.

If you don't see any error, however, I might suggest looking at settings on the
Access Point/Router.

Please keep in mind that the card is trying to "Talk" to or communicate with a wireless
Access Point/Wireless Router. The issue you're describing can be caused by settings in
either device (your card or the access point).

Despite the obvious, you may want to read the manual for your Access Point and wi-fi

You may want to try the XP/Vista Knowledge base search at :

Type the following:
Wireless Network Troubleshooting

or similar and this will provide many helpful suggestions for fixing your wireless network issues.

I hope this helps
