Hoping there's a wireless networking hero out there that can help me :flowers:

I have a Vista Ultimate 32bit system that wirelessley connects to my home network, about 5 days ago my connection was lost and I have tried and tried in vain to get it back online. :thumbsup:

The network icon in the bottom left has a red x and says I'm not connected to any networks (I can connect to the network no problem on my laptop, and so can the other 4 systems in my house). If I go to connect to wireless network it shows that I am connected with limited access. I'm using a Buffalo WLI-UC-GN usb Adapter and it show that the network is connected with a transmission speed of 72Mbps, yet I cannot access the internet. I've tried unplugging everything (modem, router), as to reset but that hasn't worked. I tried a winsock rest, that didn't work either, scanned with malware bytes and still nothing. I've done an ipconfig /all, but of course cannot make head nor tails of the info it has provided, so I've posted it below:

I would gretly appreciate if someone could shed some light as to what the problem might be, and potential fixes i could try. I apologize if I haven't included enough info about the problem, please excuse my ignorance. I will try my best to answer any questions regarding the system/ problems I'm having.

Go into Device manager, under Network Adapters and see what is listed for your wireless. I am assuming you can plug the computer in with Ethernet and get online?

Once you have the name, google it and find the drivers. Download them, then go back into Device manager and uninstall your wireless adapter, go into Add/Remove programs(or whatever its called in Vista) uninstall anything in there that has to do with wireless. Reboot and install the adapter with the new drivers. See if that fixes your issue.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

Unfortunately I don't have access to an Ethernet cable where my desktop is located, that is why i use the wireless. I've tried what you suggested but have had no luck with that either. :thumbsup: Before the adapter was at least showing signal, now I have none at all, anything else i can try?

I uninstalled all the adapters (Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter, Intel® 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection, and Buffalo WLI-UC-GN). I tried reinstalling, but now they just have yellow caution indicators on the icons. I'm about ready to put a big sign on my lawn that says "FREE COMPUTER! :thumbsup: " Lol.
