I'm hoping someone can help me. I thoiught that maybe my problem was related to malware....but having checked that out at the Spybot forum and having been given the "all clean" prognosis.....I'm hopin someone here can maybe help.

Here is my issue. Whenever I need to reboot my system.....the wireless device I use (a 3Com WIRELESS LAN ADAPTER) does not connect to the router. In order to get it to function I need to uninstall it and then re-install it. Then it works normally.

However, when I downladed the SP3 update.....the Wireless adapter would not work even after uninstalling and the re-installing. So it would appear that something on start up is causing the Wireless adapter to not function properly.

Im using Windows XP.

Any help is appreciated.

I would start by visiting the 3Com tech support at their website to see if it is a common issue.
It would also be a good idea to download and install the latest drivers for your device.

Welcome to BC.

Can you tell the XP version and SP of your operating system. Also make sure that the drivers are upto date. To do this manufacture website of you computer and look for the drivers there.

After you reboot your system is the "network connections" service is automatically ON. If not change it and have a try. Also check if "wireless zero-config"

Did you tried the option of the repair the wireless connection after re-installing it.

Its a simple magic trick given to me by one friend also and I am at this stage  :love4u:
