I recently downloaded SP3, Aaaargh!! The remaining problem I have is that every time I log on I have to 'repair' the wifi connection. I have an Orange livebox running on XP home. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the livebox and my laptop recognises my wifi connection but will not connect automatically. No joy! Any suggestions please.
Check the WEP settings are being remembered on your computer - these are hardware set on the Livebox (you can find the key on a label stuck underneath). When I had a similar problem recently I found it was the Firewall (Zonealarm) that was causing the problem - relaxed the settings on that and all was well.
Having done a search around I can only find a driver for that adapter dated 25/3/05 , version 188.8.131.521 , is that the one you have at the moment ?
Go to control panel/Network connections , and double click on your wireless adapter , then click on the centre tab " Wireless Networks " and tick the box ( unless it is done already ) that says " Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings " Click Ok .
For further info , click here it might just help you .
Forgot to add , make sure that the SSID ( name ) of your wireless router is being broadcast , hiding it make connections difficult . Check your firewall as well , to see if it is letting the adapter connect .
Have checked all your recs and driver is 184.108.40.2061. Also checked the website you rec. All processes appear to be correct but wifi still not recognised on log on and have to repair connection. Will have a look at it again tomorrow must go now. Thanks Ashley. And thanks also PA28
