View available wireless networks

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Y2FwbWVkaWE=?=, Dec 3, 2004.

  1. When I right click on the icon in the system tray I get the normal response.
    But when I then click on "View available wireless networks" none show up,
    with the only enabled button being "Cancel." The darn thing is my wireless
    802.11b still works (it's an open network at my office) and I am connected.
    But I fear that, without access to the "advanced" button and page I will be
    unable to connect to other secure networks which I have had access to before.
    I did go in and restart the wireless zero configuration in the system
    administrator files but with no result. Any suggestions? FYI, am using XP
    home edition on a laptop and had access to the advanced options 'til about a
    week ago. Thanks.

    Have you upgraded to SP2? It has fixed a lot of problem in Wireless Zero
    Configuration. And be sure you have set the card to use Windows to
    configure the wireless network settings, if you can get to the Wireless
    Networks tab.

    Otherwise, strange problems can sometimes be fixed using WinSock XP Fix (log
    in as Administrator):

    After using it, you will need to reset any custom entries you may have made
    for you Wi-Fi card in Network Connections.
