Anyone Up Still? I Need Help! Just Installed XP Pro...


Recommended Posts

Well I just installed XP Pro to my Laptop and it won't recognize my wireless connection like it did with XP Home. I have tried a lot of things but still can't get my network going. How can I get my Internet working on my laptop again? I am about to go back to Home since this is so confusing.

Have you set "Broadcast ssid" on your Wireless connection? This needs to be configured for Windows to detect your wireless network..And if not, you need to know the EXACT name of your network and Configure it Yourself and not through the Wizard!!! The wizard only works if there is an ssid broadcasting..

If your connection is WPA you need to make sure that either you have SP2 running or you download the patch that allows the wifi client to use WPA as the encryption scheme.  Also make sure that you have the chip set and wifi drivers installed like php mentioned.

The other thing that I would try is pinging the router/modem.. if you can see it then I am sure that you will be able to ping it. 

If none of this works.  Try reseting the router back to is orginal config and start all over..
