Have you actually "Connected" to the wireless network? In other words, have you run the wireless adapter's software, scanned for "Available Wireless Networks", found and highlighted the one that matches your router's SSID (network name) and selected the option to "Connect" to it? Once "connected", the little icon will get its "halo" to indicate it is connected to that network and it should then get its correct IP address by DHCP from the router.

Note: When setting up third-party wireless adapters with Wanadoo's Livebox, you have to set it to "pairing" mode. Follow the instructions in their tutorial at click here

Is the wireless adapter getting its correct IP address from the router?

Open a Command Prompt window and, at the prompt, type IPCONGIG /ALL which should give details similar to this click here

If you post the details back here, someone will know if they are correct. For example, an IP address in a 192.168.x.x range or a 10.x.x.x range would be OK because these are valid Local Area Network addresses. A 169.254.x.x address would indicate a problem, because the adapter hasn't been able to access the router to get the correct address and has been allocated a special one by Windows that won't let you get online.

I have the same problem and am stuck as to what to do next. I have followed the suggestions until they stop.

My issue is that it is not detecting the IP Address although it is saying that it is connected
