Just reinstalled xp on my pc, and downloaded the driver on my laptop and transfered it over to my pc and installed it, it seemed to work as the utility came up and the available wireless networks, so i entered in my WEP key and it connected succusfully, when i hover the mouse over the icon on the try it says its connected at 54 mb/s but when i open my browser i get the error "this page cannot be displayed"


cant understand why anyone help?


By the way i ahve reinstalled before and installed the driver using the same method and its worked 100%.

Check the following things :

Connection settings in Internet Explorer. Make sure that the LAN settings are set to automatic.

If this doesn't work, try a reset in Advanced Settings (assuming you are using IE7).

Check the TCP/IP settings for your wireless connection. Check they are both in auto mode.

Assuming you have installed you wireless cards software, try disconnecting the connection you have and reconnecting using the software (or, if you have connected using the software, disconnect and try connecting with the Windows native software).

Run the CMD command and type in ipconfig /all . This should show your wireless connection. The IP address should be 192.168.x.x If the first 2 sets of digits are different, then it isn't connecting properly.

That should keep you busy for 5 mins!

Your TCP/IP is OK, your IP address is OK, your DNS is working. Winsock/LSP problem is a possibility; click here

Yeah, grab that Winsock XP Fix tool. It works a treat.
