Actually It's my brothers PC, so i don't know what might have triggered the problem; but here is the deal.
We have been using the wireless network for like 2 years. But all of a sudden, it started to fail connecting. I can view the wireless networks, but cannot connect. I tried to repair it but it gave the following error:

"windows could not finish repairing the problem becasue the following action cannot be completed: Disabling the wireless network adapter. Make sure your network adapter is properly installed"

So i decided to reinstall the driver. (we use an airties wus 300 USB adapter) But reinstallation did not work. While i was wandering through some files to find out the problem, i realised that i could not see the hidden files. This was a known issue for me, it was "amvo" virus. I killed the virus using a "kill ammo script". After that i rescanned the harddrive with norton 360 v2. But it came with nothing.

I also checked the Tcp/ip properties. They are set to automatic..

And I should also state that i can connect to the same wireless network using my laptop.

So what might be the problem?

Even a glimpse of an idea would be very much appreciated, because i'm clueless...

For starters Norton 360 sucks, it slows a PC to a crawl.

With that said probably either a corrupted driver or/and defective hardware. Go to the manufacture's website for the NIC card, and download the latest driver (make sure you uninstall the previous one first), then load it and reboot. If that doesn't work if it's a PCI WIFI card try another slot, if it's a USB device try another USB. Stil fails, screw and get a new one.

Lets try and see whether you have equipment related problems. In this step, we will allow the equipment to self-diagnose and resolve the problems.

If you suddenly lose connectivity over your High Speed Internet line, have a slow connection or are unable to browse the Internet despite indications that you are connected, it is possible that your modem is not communicating properly with the Internet network.

Save all your current work, close all open applications, then shut down your computer ...unplug router and modem

Power up the modem first and after it gets initialized and all the lites are steady..
power up the router...after all the lites are on...
power up the computer

The above steps should take care of your problem

no joy then try this..

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands click on Start.... Run..... type in...CMD ....to open a command prompt box

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults...type in ... netsh winsock reset catalog .... press ...enter

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults...type in...... netsh int ip reset reset.log ... press ...enter
