My wpc54g wireless network icon in the systray shows a red cross. I uninstalled this card and reinstalled it. Still the red cross on the systray icon. Despite this, the linksys utility was able to detect the signal from a DSL-604T wireless router. Same problem using XP to detect signal - it can see it but will not connect, and still the red cross. Uninstalled this, although it doesn't seem to be a very clean uninstall, as there are still many entries for it in the registry. Installed D_link Air Plus XtremeG DWL-G650 rev.2. Same problem - the dlink utility can see the wireless router's signal, but not connected and red cross, again.
the wpc54g shows up as working properly in the device manager. I ran cleanup40.exe (got rid of a staggering 2GB), but still no joy. Is there something I can do. I have looked at Technet and other forums, but can find nothing that helps.
Has anyone had this problem, or similar, and managed to sort it out? Do I need to reinstall part of the network software?
