the atheros wireless card shows a full signal but when clicked on does not show the wireless network but states 'no link' and 'not associated'. This is in an Acer Travelmate 2420 running windows xp sp3 media edition. I have downloaded and installed the latest driver but can find no way of altering its status. I wonder if a service needed is disabled. I have made sure that the wireless service is on automatic and started. Can anyone suggest how to get this going?

It probably means that the computer can see the wireless network, but does not have permission to join it.

Re-run the wireless network wizard in the control panel, and try to reconnect to the network. It should then prompt you for the security password for your network. Once that has been correctly entered you should be able to associate with the router.
