Hi all,

I recently resurrected an old desktop PC with the intention of rebuilding it.

I've got it up and running now, but having troubles with connecting to the internet.

I'm using a Belkin USB wireless network adapter.

It works fine, and i can find available networks, and connect to them, but with no traffic. No access to the outside world as it were.

I've disabled the WZC service to allow the belkin software to manage my connection, but still no joy.

When left to its own devices, the system cycles through connecting and disconnecting.

I get pop up bubbles on the taskbar saying wireless connected, then immediately, it tells me wireless is unavailable, then its found the conneciton again, over and over.

It seems as if there is is some sort of conflict with the connection.

Anyone with any ideas or info on this, it would be greatly appreciately.

I'm running XP - and i've a Belkin 802.11g USB network adapter.

do you use the USB adapter near the other laptops which work fine? do the laptops work in the same place that the USB adapter fails?

exactly what ive got on my other desktop
go into the belkin icon right side of task bar pull up the gui (right click) go thru it its very good.
wpa what psk?
service pack 1/2/3
go to profile settings
delete old
set up new
input SSID, (your isp provider details)
your input type peer to peer etc
your security code provided by your isp, if psk
and then connect, and away u go hopefully


then go back to AP list and see if your there it will give u a bit more info.
IMPORTANT dissable WZC on xp
AND dissable the ethernet connection in device drivers
do u have 2 icon for this 1 belkin and 1 windows if u do go into the windows icon (right click choose option repair)

oh i believe that u can only have a maximum of 4 wireless connections on a router ie 123.456.7.4 and no duplicates.


If it still doesnt work i suggest u delete the belkin program and drivers and reinstall them and start again
best of luck
Roy

just re-read ur 1st post, where u say it connect/disconnects is that the windows icon i mentioned if so then go to network connections via the control panel make sure that the connection is handled by DHCP, u might have to set up

1. your subnet mask usually 255.255.255.0
2 your default gateway 123.456.0.}1{

u can check this by looking at 1 of your other laptops

Did you get the latest drivers for the wireless dongle?

Did it do it with WZC enabled?

Did you try connecting through WZC?

What service pack is on the PC?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
