    Hi I'm using Win XP sp1 fresh install (fresh because i reformated it thinking that would help the problem), my wireless adapter connects me to my network but no internet connection. I have tried using both WIN xp zero config and and the software that came with my card. I have bought another adapter and it does the same thing. I have tried reinstalling em and and switching slots. My network has wep key and I put that in as suposed to and it connects but no internet. I have used a laptop wirelessly and it works fine so it is my Pc that is the problem. My ip is worng. I have tried using the repair option in Win xp Zero Config. It says failed to renew IP. I definetly need an expert for this. otherwise plz post here.

    HELP ME....

    XP SP2 has better wireless connection setup. Update to sp2 and see if you still have trouble.

    Yea now that updated completely it says "limited or no connectivity" even though i'm 3 feet away from the router. I know the router is not the problem cuz other pcs work wirelessly with my network

    The only network you are trying to use is the wireless connection to your wireless lan router, right? Are you also connected with a Cat5 cable?

    Delete drivers, reinstall driver making sure it is the latest, from network connections disable all connections except wireless, from control pannel run wireless connection wizard. If that does not work, replace the card, that's what has worked for me,Good Luck
