I just built a media PC and I am trying to connect to our home network. when I enable windows zero config to be the network manager I keep clicking rescan for networks and sometimes I see my network sometimes I dont. The same thing for all my neighbors networks. when I try to connect it attempts to detect the network type and then says windows in unable to connect. The selected network may be out of range.

When using the connection manager that came with the driver for my card (RAconfig) I can see and connect to network but after about 5 seconds it disconnects for about 1 second and reconnects. It shows my signal strength as 78-82%, link quality as 86-95%, and noise floats between 16% and 70%. when it is connected windows also shows very good connection but is stuck aquiring network address and the RAconfig is displaying my IP address and submask as 0.0.0.0.

wireless card is rosewill RNX-G300LX
motherboard is ASRock a785GM-LE
windows Xp professional SP2 (havent been able to update)

as a sidenote where this media PC is currently sitting 4 feet away from 2 other machines using wireless with no issues whatsoever. *cough cough* but those run win7 and linux *cough cough*

I installed the card in my windows vista desktop and had solid Internet in no time so it isn't hardware

Are you using static or dynamic routing? If static, make sure that the subnet mask is the same as your router's (default gateway). You can check this by clicking Start - type cmd and then ipconfig/all If in doubt, post here the screen print.

Either way, make sure your router and your pc adapter are within the same range of channels.

You may also go to Start - type cmd and then ipconfig/renew

Let us know if it's working.

Best of luck.
