My CPU only works with the internet in my house. So if I bring my laptop to my friend's, library or my work place, it can not connect to the internet.

I have tried plugging in a different internet provider thing, 'NETGEAR WG111v3 Smart Wizard' and it has worked.
However, this was not my own thing and I can't keep it.

Is there any way to fix my computer so that it may connect to other wireless networks without buying a whole new thing for it?

I currently use Intel PROSet Wireless.

BlackWaltz, although I think I could probably help you on this, i'm not going to only because I am a student in the field as opposed to one with experience. I would hate to lead you in the wrong direction. But to get this going, and hopefully resolved, some of the networking professionals on these boards will most likely need some more information.

What operating system do you use?

Do you know what network adapters are installed on your computer?

This can be found by navigating to the device manager. Most likely 2/3 down the page under device manager should be a tab called "network adapters". They will be listed there.

Intel Proset Wireless is an application, not the actual network adapter.

Windows XP

__________
1394 Net Adapter

Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller

Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN

TAP-Win32 Adapter V9 (Tungle)



Broadcom and TAP had an 'X' on it. I just enabled it. Now all four are enabled at the moment. Since I am home, I have no real way to check if it is fixed or not by doing that.

It blatantly ignores it's existence.

When I ask for windows to manage my wireless, it pulls up nothing generally.
If PROSet is doing it, I can -see- the connections, but it won't connect.
'Authentication in process' is a common thing.

It's basically like a guy walking down the street with his girlfriend and seeing a bunch of cute girls wanting to flirt with him.
Then he sneaks something their way and he slips up and says SORRY UNABLE TO ATTEMPT TO CONNECT.

I can't connect to -public- resources like the library, so it's not a password issue I'd think.

No request for any key*

1. Ensure the windows wireless service is disabled so you are only using intel proset application go to control panel>administrative tasks>services scroll down to windows wireless zero configuration on xp or wlan autoconfig in vista/7 and ensure it is disabled.

2. Intel proset app will have a profile set up for your connection at home so you will not able to use this profile to connect to any other router other than your own. You will need to set up another profile for your friends and then one for the library, intel proset should have an option to do this consult the help file or documentation. I have never used it but have used others which let you set up different profiles for different router connections.

I actually did all of that before without the extra checking in the service area.
Got nothing so far.


Ah, the connections says it's green, but I can't 'repair' or browse anything still. No pacets or internet activity, yet the status says 'Excellent' and is in green :thumbsup:

Is this your connection at home or your friends?

Ah I fixed it myself.
I play Warcraft 3 and had to alter some IP stuff to be able to host.
Too bad there was nothing written about it changing the ability to connect to other networks.

Problem Fixed.

(Though now I can't host on WC3 .. for now)

The IP was binded to a single thing as opposed to 'connect automatically'.
