XP Wireless Connect Bug

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RG91Zw==?=, Feb 5, 2006.

  1. On "Choose a Wireless Network" screen,
    it shows my D-link access point correctly, with 5 green bars showing. It
    says "you are currently connected to this network", which is true, as I am
    using it to access the Internet and post this msg.
    However, the title line also says "Not Connected" and shows one star.
    So I am connected but not connected, apparently.

  2. Hi
    Unfortunately seeing a Good signal or seeing the name of your device in the
    Wireless Properties, or the word Connected, does not mean that you have a
    working connection.
    Working connection would mean that a least you can log to the Router's Menus
    system and browse them, or you can connect and exchange info with another
    computer on the Network, or you can browse the Internet. If none of the
    three is working it most likely you do not have a Functional Wireless
    Connection.

  3. well, I can do anything at all, including accessing secure sites, so I think
    this message of not being connected when I am connected is just a good ole
    bug, is misleading, and should be fixed in a service pack or update. I can do
    all the things you listed.
