wifi rx frame - why is this at zero?

hi, am experimenting with wifi for the first time. I have located 2 available networks, but despite the signal being good , and the fact it says connected, i can't access the internet (pages not found etc). I noticed on the wifi monitor that the tx frame is about 300+ and the rx frame is 0. is this because the networks are encypted or i have the thing set up wrongly??

it's a pc with win2000 and a zd network usb adaptor. default encryption is wep

many thanks. B.

It is most likely that the networks are encrypted. When you do not have the right encryption key, it'll discard all data that is bad.

Chris: Thanks for the response. seems like the setup allows me to send enough data to connect, nothing beyond that, and not receive anything: looking at the connection properties box, it think it said sent: 50,000b and received :0b.

As he said, you probably don't have the necessary encryption key. You aren't really "connected" -- that's Microsoft nonsense.
