Xp Wi-Fi problem

by jhlamothe In reply to XP Wi-Fi problem

Well, Last weeks windows update for XP took care of flakey wi-fi dropouts by loading updated wi-fi adaptors drivers. ( there's a new adaptor a week it seems!

My first problem was having no succsess uninstalling and re-installing software for adaptor.
Most OEM's want you to use their uninstall not xp's.
Once you have done this make sure connections are present in network places after install of software.
Some adaptors install their own handlers others want xp to do it with WCZ.
When the smoke cleared my wi-fi worked but had become my 6th connection!!
Ah the magic of the Windows wizard and software!!
seriously, if that doesn't work send another post and I will find thread from my original post and repost it!!
