I would if I could but unfortunately I cant. If it fails to download I will have to wait till tommorow and borrow my friends Laptop again, hook it up at the router just use a USB stick to transfer it. The landlord says I'm not allowed to have my PC down by the router and connected via cable because of the wires going across the floor. Its a bit stupid to be honest. But its not my rules :/

I GENUINLY DO NOT BELIEVE IT JUST GOT TO 90% THEN DISCONNECTED. WHY GOD WHY.

I'm gonna have to do this tommorow. This is such a piss take. What other options are there? Cos I only bought this USB wireless thingy a short while ago and unless they have released updates within the last week which are causing it not to work I dont think its the main cause to be honest.

Sorry I'm just getting a little frustrated with this.

Thanks.

I know it is frustrating but since there are so many reasons why you could be having this issue the only real way of tackling it is to eliminate potential problems step by step until the problem is solved. Now, since you mentioned something about the ports I have had an idea that might help I suggest you follow this article and see if it makes any difference: http://www.home-netw...and-duplex.html

Remember what settings were in use before changing anything and if it has no effect then I suggest changing back to the way they were (probably auto negotiation).

Other than that upgrade to the latest drivers and see if that makes any difference.

Let me know the results of changing the speed and also updating the drivers.

Thanks.

Please go to a command prompt again (Start->search, or use run, and type cmd) and paste the following command: (ipconfig /all & netsh wlan show all) >%USERPROFILE%\desktop\Wireless.txt & exit To paste the command right click in the window and click paste and then hit enter. The command show execute and then close the window automatically. On you desktop you should find a new file called wireless.txt Please upload this file as an attachment.


Make sure when you copy the command it is all on one line and make sure you copy everything in bold.

Thanks.

Hey. I tried that. It worked in cmd but no file was created on my desktop. I looked around for it but cant find it.

Just a little note. I am connected to my wireless but in my tray bottom right there is a red X over my wireless icon. Weird. Is this significant? I've been working alot recently and I 2 days off now so I can reply faster :D

Thanks

OK, strange it worked for me. Try a search for a file called wireless.txt If that doesn't work try it this time: (ipconfig /all & netsh wlan show all) >C:\Wireless.txt & exit That will place the file in your c:\ drive so just double click your hard drive when in my computer and you should find it. A red X generally means your wireless network has been disabled.

Oh the full command didn't work but I guess that's because your using windows xp and I don't think the command is supported so that's my fault really I should have checked. Anyway, without that info I'm going to ask you to install a program which will allow you to fully see what is going in with your wireless. Please download this program and let me know when you have it installed: http://www.metageek....oducts/inssider

Thanks.
