Lost ability to connect to network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?TWVs?=, Sep 9, 2005.

  1. I used to be able to connect my laptop to my desktop pc without any problems
    but now I cannot. The desktop syas wireless connected and working etc but
    the laptop says it isn't and attempts top repair etc do not work - does
    anyonw know if this could be due to microsoft updates - I downloaded service
    Pack 2 and others and am wondering if this might be the problem. If it is
    what is the answer? I cannot remember, or find, when I downloaded Service
    PK2 and when I looked at removing it I got a very long list of programs that
    might not work properly. I have tried disabling the automatic configuration
    by WIndows but that hasn't made any discernable difference. Help needed and
    greatly appreciated - I am pretty ok with computers but networking is a bit
    of a mystery to me.
