I just got an older emachine type pc. Its running windows xp. It has an after market wireless card. However when I go to connect to the detected wireless networks, it searches for a while and then stops without prompt and without connection. I tried a wireless hot spot from my phone and was able to gain limited or no connectivity. Any suggestions on what to do? Xp says that the hardware is working fine.

Ok lets see a log please if you can get these possibly with a cd/dvd or usb device.

Please download MINITOOLBOX and run it.

Please download FarbarServiceScanner and run it on the computer with the issue.

It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
