    I am trawling my way through all of the newsgroups and there is a serious
    issue with wireless connectivity and SP2. i am certainly no professional but
    through these newsgroups and the kind help of many people I am begining to
    understand the vaguries of windows. Now, recently I had a completely
    functioning wireless network. My business pc was running well and my kids
    were happy that they could keep up with their friends through the likes of
    Messenger etc, my wife could use the pc whilst I continued to work on my
    laptop, Ours was a happy home. Then the windows updater decided to download
    SP2. I had read that this update was a major step in pc security so I had to
    accept it. Now the only pc that works is my Host PC, I cannot establish a
    wireless connection for love nor money. I told my nephew that I had download
    and Installed sp2 and he called me a prat or something similar (He is a IT
    professional and often gives me good advice). I wonder if I put a chitty
    into microsoft for 3 days work trying to resolve this problem that they
    would pay me? doubt it don't you?
    Get it sorted for Gods sake, this is ridiculous

    Is the Windows firewall working or do you have a third-party firewall?
    Use only one or the other; the latter is preferable, IMO. You can try
    this: Open TCP/IP properties for the connection, General tab, Advanced
    properties, Options tab, TCP/IP filtering, TCP/IP filtering properties,
    Check Enable and then select Permit All for all three ports/protocols.
    Now, if you do not have a firewall operating, this can be a bad idea.
    Kerio, ZoneAlarm, Sygate, etc, have free personal firewalls.

    did you asked him to do his magic and rescue you once again?

    Of course, not. Remember that little user license agreement window when SP
    started to install?

    Hi Pavel, I put too many connection issues because myself, like many others
    have posted regarding this issue and there does not seem to be a straight
    fix for this issue. You obviously spend a great deal of your time assisting
    people like me, take a look at the NG and others on the net regarding the
    xpSP2 wireless connectivity issue, then tell me how many of them have posted
    back with problem solved messages, (I haven't found many). You cannot
    believe the frustration it causes when after every failure I have to make
    another post (not being gauranteed a reply) and then having to go through
    the awful procedure of running here there and everywhere to configure
    machines.

    I applied SP2 about a week ago and it did indeed kill my wireless network. I
    turned off the windows firewall and everything now works fine.

    Strictly speaking, it is not necessary or desirable to respond to a
    troll.
