Hi, I'm hoping somebody can help me out, because I am lost. I have a laptop, with a wireless Intel/Pro network connection (version 8.0.0). With this, I have an ASUS wireless access point (WL-300g). I am using windows XP, home edition.
For some time now, my system has been crashing. Always reboots without an apparent reason. After having done an error report, the Microsoft website told me that the most probable cause for these problems was the wireless/PRO software and directed me to the website to install new software. I did this, thinking it really would solve my problems. I installed the software, and everything was fine. Then it wanted me to configure the network connection and asked me for the network identification. I couldn't remember the network password, so I reset the WAP, and reset the password.
first, it recognised the network, but wouldn't allow me to connect. Every time I clicked 'connect', it asked for a network name, ports etc, all the general and security settings, which I had already thought I'd entered. It couldn't connect, even though it could connect to a different wireless network within range.
I then decided to uninstall the newly installed software, and go back to the original installation cd. Having done that, nothing (!) worked. It didn't recognise anything anymore, apart from the other wireless network that is within range.
I have no idea what happened, or how I can fix it. At the moment I'm connected by ethernet. directly to the laptop.
Can anybody help me?=20
Thank you in advance,
