Hi All,
I have a strange problem going on. I have a three computer network in my home. The second and third computers are hooked up though a linksys wireless-g 802.11g router (model # wrt54g). One of the computers is an IBM laptop running xp tablet pro sp2 (no problems here). The other computer is a Gateway 510 desktop running xp home sp2 with a linksys wireless-g 802.11g adapter (model # wmp54g). This is the one thats giving me a headache :flowers: . Every time i start up this computer (Gateway) I have to go to services and manually start DHCP, wireless zero config and secondary logon before this computer can find a web page. All of these services are set to automatic, but i don't know how to get them to stay on by default. The other issue with this computer is that sometimes the wireless icon in the task tray, and in the network connections window shows that there is no connection, but I can connect to the internet. :thumbsup:

Thanks for any and all help!

marc, it could be one of many things, or a combo of them all. do you have all your windows updates, up to date?
is the linksys utility also trying to run on startup? (should be an icon in taskbar)
have you run an adware/spyware scan (updated of course), and a virus scan?

try this also for fun, fixes some registry network related issues, may nt work in your case, but it wont hurt either.

Hey Snapper,
Sorry it took so long for me to respond back, but i didn't have access to the computer in question (Gateway). I had done a full scan with AVG and Spysubtract just prior to my post. They found nothing other then a couple of cookies. I also used the link you suggested, and ran windowxpfix. My windows os has all the latest updates. The linksys wireless icon comes up in the task tray at start up, but sometimes (but not always) has a big red X though it like it's not connected. I can still access the internet when this red X is there. I guess the thing that I'm mostly confused :thumbsup: about is why I have to manually start DHCP client and the others in services to access the internet, after the machine has been shut down. I don't have to do this if I just restart the machine. Mark
