Connection Notifications

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?SmFtZXNQ?=, Aug 28, 2005.

  1. I receive repeated connection status notifications (from the wirelss icon in
    the Notification area) telling me that I am connected to a wireless network.
    It seems as if these notifications occur for no reason as I'm not aware that
    I'd lost my connection prior to the notification popping up ... it's as if XP
    is just periodically telling me I have a wireless connection.

    A couple months back I started using WPA-PSK (w/ TKIP) and I think that's
    when I began getting all these notifications ... since that's the only change
    I've made to my system I think there's a connection (no pun intended.) Am I
    on the right trail and what if anything can be done about these annoying
    notices?

    Hi

    Assuming that you are using WinXP WZC util.

    Look at the Wireless menu and make sure that your Network is the only one
    in the preferred section and that the until connects only to the preferred
    Wireless.

    Another issue might be associated with your SSID, or lack of it.

  3. Hello Jack! Thanks for the response.

    Yes, I'm using XP's WZC util and have two wireless networks listed in my
    Preferred Networks list. Is this a problem (having multiple networks listed)
    .... because there's multiple networks listed XP is continuously looking for
    the other networks?

    Open the network connections in control panel.
    Right click on your wireless connection and select properties
    Make sure the box next to "Show icon in notification area when connected is
    unchecked..
