Hi, I have a PIII 500, 384MB SDRAM, Gigabyte 6-BXE Motherboard, USB1.1 and Windows 2000. I connect to the internet via a USB Wireless adapter (DWL-120+) though a Netgear DG824M Modem/Router/WAP.
A while back my pc crashed and I couldn't get onto the internet at all. I re-installed the adapter several times, and it sets up, finds the access point and connects with a "good signal strength" (all bars full)
I'm left with the problem that if I want to connect to the internet, I have to go Start-->Settings-->Network Connections double click the connection and remove the TCP/IP protocol, then shut the PC down. I then have to reboot, re-install the TCP/IP protocol and *not* restart the pc when prompted. I can then use the internet. I then have to uninstall the TCP/IP protocol before shutting down for it to work the next time.
Have found what I think is the culprit, Protowall driver is installed as a network device, but will not uninstall. I'm sure there's some info somewhere in one of those links you sent me, but will have to wait until I have time to mess the connection up in between fixing it.
