I have win2000 prof running on my machine. I have Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card. Device Manager is showing that this device is working properly but I'm not able to connect to wireless router (Access point networking)
Looks like this card has not git configured properly.
Could any body help me how to do the same on win-2000 professional.

I was able to configure the same Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card on Windows XP.

Thanx

Pavan

What is going on when you try to connect?  can you see the wireless network?  If not, go into the setup and hit the advanced button and look again for available networks.

It is detecting the network but it is not able to assign any ip address to wireless card.
Whenever I 'm runninh ipconfig/renew
it is giving following error

Media State.............................: Cable disconnected.

Since it is wireless card.. it should not look for cable.

Thanks

It sounds like your wireless router is not configured....it needs a network name......and it probably also needs it's dhcp configured....the problem may still be a defective wireless card...but check the router first......

"Radio link Ok but unable to retrieve AP name."

means that the card is connecting to the router, but that the router is not configured with an access point name............

Please explain your "C" grade.  Here is the EE guidelines on grading. Please note the lines about asking for clarification if you need further help/assistance.

"Although we use an A-D scale here at Experts Exchange, it works differently than, say, school grades. If one or more Experts' proposals are accepted as answers, they should usually be given an A or B grade, since they have taken the time to provide you with a working solution. If a possible solution is incomplete - ask for clarification or details before accepting the answer and grading it. People should not be given lower grades because of incorrect grammar or because you just accepted their answer or comment to close the question. Keep in mind, your question and any follow-up comments should be focused so that there can be a specific answer. The following is a good guideline to follow when grading:

A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.

B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.

C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question. Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support. It's also true that a "C" is the lowest grade you can give, and the Experts know that -- so use it judiciously. "
