hi,

really hope someone can help...sure its obvious to someone better at this than me!!

i have an issue with my wireless zero configuration (within admin tools, services)....this...i set start up type to 'automatic' but the computer does not do this automatically on start up...ie i need to go and manully start this to get a wireless connection.

basically the problem is that when i switch off and then back on ...for some reason the wireless zero donfig bit does not start automitically - even tho it has been set to.

STRANGE, but when I just tried it just now...i went in to 'service' immediatly on loggin in...and i actually caught the device 'on'...so it is automatically strating...it is just being stopped pretty soon after...but i have no idea of finding what it is or how......(after less than 10 secs later, my internet access was halted)

can you please help me to get this back to the way it used to be - working automatically.

Best regards

Dave

ps i have posted this in networking, but think its really an xp question, sorry to admin.

How ya doin', Big Guy? Your machine still running ok outside of this?

Did your Wireless Zero come with an application that needs to run to access your account?

ok, i have tried the msconfig in 'run'....this was already checked...i did it again and rebooted...to no avail.

it seems to be that it is set to automatically 'start' on start up.....but the problem is that something (and i dont know where to look or what it might be...but something is 'stopping' this once it is automatically started.

as i said...i can manage to get on to net straight away, then whatever it is kicks in and halt my progress...could it be dial up internet over riding it? or some other software...or a bug?


Wannabee,

i am good thanks....great to see ur still handing out the good advice.....

i have now got a new laptop, dell inspiron....we had struggled by on 9gb for long enough....now i have 60gb...so plenty room for all my music!!

regards what the wireless zero came with....not sure, but dont think so....it was built in in the compuer, but it has worked fine for ages....then i have been without broadband for 8 weeks...now the wireless dont want to work. i dont have any other software.

rushin / wannabe 1very appreciative of any advice / help on this

best regards

try this

Here, you would need to take out the battery of your laptop and hold the power button down for about a minute. Doing this will allow you to get rid of all the static charges, that are probably interfering with your wireless adapter

ok...I tried the battery trick, and it didnt work for me this time.

I am unsure re how to check for the device manager and the yellow mark - can you advise me please.

I have attached a copy of screen prints of this problem, step by step (I have annotated it also).....if you require any detaisl of what some of the messages say (sometimes difficult to read) pls ask me.

thanks for the advice / suggestions so far

Dave

ps i did try to attach my doc but i cant see it..let me know if its not there pls. i think size restrictions has meant it cant be added....if i am allowed can i mail it to you or anyone interested?

it says things like 'device working properly'...and there is refrence to 'update driver, rollback driver on a tab named driver....any of that any use?

well...you can hopefully let me know.

go back to your control panel system hardware device manager network adapters

on the wireless you could try uninstalling the driver then reinstalling it then update the driver

right click on wireless then you see your options it may even say if it was disabledor if it says enable click on enable
