I am using a Netgear WGT624v4.2 wireless router. My desktop XP PC in another location is using a Dlink DWA130 wireless adapter. When I boot up, the wireless icon shows in the task tray that I am connected but after a few minutes I get the red X off and on so I have right click on it and select repair and it fixed that issue. Any reason why I have to do a repair each and every time? Also, when I right click on the icon to show other networks, absolutely nothing shows. but when I click on the green bars in the task tray, any local networks show there.

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if foundhere's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.


To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

One more look . . Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 192.168.0.1

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com



Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

You are connected to the internet . . What antivirus and firewall are you using? What happens when you open a browser?

please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector,

click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this

application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download

and install NET Framework.


To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the

PrtScn
key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use

PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and

Not tried IE. Having a problem with that. Doesn't want to open and my preference is not to use it anyway. I can use FF if need to.

Each browser works differently with different addons . . if IE will not open, that may indicate the problem. I don't use chrome . . can you disable addons and see if it works?

You mean in Chrome or IE? If you mean IE, and it won't open, how am I to disable addons?
