Wireless access not working
Posted on 2005-03-18
I'm a COMPLETE beginner to wireless networking, first of all.
I have a user on the network whose old pc is connected through wireless network card (Netgear WG311). This pc, although old, is working fine and connecting to the network no problem.
I have to upgrade her system, so I took out the network card and put it into her new pc, and ran the installation.
When I brought it to her desk (I can't reach the wireless network from where I am), it recognises the wireless network, and lists the wireless networks near the building, but when (in XP) I click 'Connect' it comes up with an error saying that Windows could not reach the network, that I am now out of reach. This is impossible, the pc is right beside the wireless adaptor.
There are probably other things I need to set up in order to connect this user upp, I just doen'tr know what they are - I am used to just joining new pcs to the domain and they are good to go.
I need someone's assistance on getting this user's pc onto the network. Thanks.
