Re: D610 - Intel PROSet - Wireless in Windows MODE not picking up network in range

Hi,

Welcome to the community

There 2 utilities you can use to configure wireless in you Xp Computer. Wireless Zero Configuration or Intel ProSet. I recommend you to use wireless zero config. To make use of this you need to select the option in Proset to let windows manage the wireless (WIfi). Then you need to enable and start the windows zero config.

Steps:

- Select "Use Windows to manage Wifi" under advance tab of Proset window.

- Start>Run> Type Services.msc  <Enter>

- Look for Wireless Zero Config, then double click

- Wireless Zero Config Properties will come out, In General tab startup type should be Automatic, and service status should be "started". (if status is already started, stopped then choose start again) Then apply.

Regards,

Re: D610 - Intel PROSet - Wireless in Windows MODE not picking up network in range

Thank U for the info. I followed the instruction. When I "refresh network list" I get the following message in the white right box. "No wireless networks were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on. To see an updated list click "refresh Network list." "

The connection still exists and internet is functioning properly. The icon in task is present and the PROSet icon is white. I  just cannot see any available networks.

Thank U again ... please help further.

You are welcome.

Can you check if you WIFI is on. Look on the status lights. (Near the power button) See if then WIFI is on. To Enable/Disable WIFI press FN+F2.

Hi,

Can you go to control panel>network connections then right click wireless connection icon then properties. Look for Wireless Tab, and check Use Windows to configure Wireless network setting. Then try again.

Re: D610 - Intel PROSet - Wireless in Windows MODE not picking up network in range

Thank U all for the assistance.

It might be time to reload the network part of XP. How do I reload re-install the Network portion of XP with my OEM CD.

This all happened after updating windows.

What Tab:General "this connection uses the following items:" need to be installed ?

There are some check boxes in the white window.

I have no option to Uninstall "internet Protocal(TCP/IP)

When I try to install it offers 3 options client, Service, Protocal

* How do I install/use the network portion of XP if I uninstall the optional PROSet drives ?

I would like to uninstall the PROSet Drives and connect only with the XP ZERO.

Uber_Noob,

 

Make sure to download the drivers for your network adapter and save it to your desktop.

 

Make a system restore point.

 

Go to device manager, network, right click on the network adapter, left click uninstall. Tell it to uninstall the drivers, also.

 

Restart your computer.

 

When you log in, the computer may install the network adapter. If it does, try to connect.

 

What happens?

 

If it doesn't install, then install the drivers.
