The first few times I tried to use my computer at home, it connected to the network with no problems. I was able to go outside and upstairs and always had a great connection.
Now, when I'm at work my computer OFTEN (not always) shows me that the Wireless Assistant cannot find any networks (which is correct) and that's fine.
But, when I'm at home and I boot my machine, it should find the wireless network and what it says is that the wireless assistant is disabled. I press the button on the top, near left of my keyboard and nothing happens - the light doesn't come on and I have to physically attach my computer to the router using a cable. I am at work now, and when I press the button it turns the wireless assistant on and off. The light comes on and 2 symbols appear in the task bar. When I turn it off, the light goes off and the symbols on the task bar have an x over them.
Another pc that I have at home is communicating with the wireless router through a USB adapter so I know the router works. Every once in a while the Compaq machine will recognize that the wireless network is there and attach.
Why would the wireless assistant work sometimes and not other times? I want it to work at home all the time. Please help.
