:whistling: I have a roadrunner 5.0 connection, and a linksys wrt54g wireless router. I also have a linksys pcmcia wireless card. The wireless card works perfectly in my HP Pavilion Ze 4400 laptop. But the wireless broadcom interal card, has worked a couple of times, but no does not work. It says aquireing connection, and also says it's connected to my wireless router.

But want connect to the internet.

Hi outback_2007,

Please download this file and save it to your desktop:

http://osc.geekstogo.com/ipconfig1.zip

Extract the files to your desktop. Double click start.bat (WARNING: this file will release your current IP address and temporarily disconnect you from the internet, then reconnect you. So if you are connected to the chat room, you will be dropped, but it should automatically reconnect you).

After the file runs, notepad will open with a report. Please copy the contents of that report and paste it into this thread.

Hi outback_2007,

Well, your computer is not even seeing the on board Broadcom network card. Next thing to look at is Device Manager and My Network Places to see if it's disabled.

Right click the My Network Places icon and choose Properties.
Make sure there are NOT any connections that say Disabled. If there are any that say Disabled, right click that connection and choose Enable, then run start.bat on your desktop again and post that report back here.

If NONE said Disabled, close all open windows. We now need to check Device Manager.
Go to Start > Control Panel.
Double click System.
Click the Hardware tab.
Click the Device Manager button.
Scroll down to Network Adapters.
If any network adapters have a red x next to it, right click it and choose Enable, then run start.bat and post the report back here.
If it has a yellow exclamation next to it, double click the adapter, and tell me what the Device Status is.

Well with no red x's and no yellow question marks, and the device is inabled. still has the same problem. I have done thought and tried all that you mentioned, before I made the first post.

It seems to be installed perfectly, and says it's connected, but it also says it's aquireing network connection. But it will never really connect. no internet explorer, cant get a page to come up, just blake page..

Hi outback_2007,

Under My Network Places, for the Broadcom card, Properties, do you have Client for Microsoft Networks and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) listed there? Any others listed?

Under the broadcom card it says, wirelss network connection 2 properites. then it has listed client for microsoft networks, odssey network agent, file and printer sharing for microsoft networks, qos packet scedular, internet protocol [TCP/IP] and all have a check in the box.

And I do have the pcmcia linksys card removed.

It just basicly says linksys_SES_47243 Aquiring Network Address


But never does.

UPDATE I just pushed the secure easy setup on my linksys wireless router, and it was connected and working as long as the light was flashing on my router on the easy setup button. But when the light quite flashing it lost connection. My computer had time to update the avg while this was going on. hmmmmmm
