Do you have network connectivity? Are you using the Windows Zero Configuration for wireless, or the MFG of the card?


I have no wireless but can connect through the lan via hard wire. There is no windows Zero config avaiable that I can tell so I using the MFG. opens but will not scan for network
click on start>run, and type in:


expand the window and scroll to the bottom. Look for Wireless Zero Configuration. What does it say for status? Is it started or stopped?

If stopped, double-click the service to open it. Click on "Start", then set the startup type to "Automatic"

select ok/apply to back out and reboot and test. You may get a window asking if you want windows to configure and control the wireless.... select yes.


sorry for the dellay I have checked Wireless Zero Configuration and it is started and set as automatic. I checked in the network connections and there is no listing of any wireless device yet the card is in and it the power light is on. Customer said that all was fine she was connecting to another new to her pc and it just froze as it was aquireing an address?

Is the device showing up in Device Manager without any problems? Also, set Device Man. to show hidden devices and see if there is any problems shown.


Wireless-G notebook adaptor has a yellow circle with an exclmation mark in the middle when clicking on this it says:
 This device cannot find enough free recorces that use (code 12)
If you want to use this device you will need to disable one of the other devices on the system.

Ok things changed I uninstalled 3 different monitors that the customer has had hooked up at one time but no longer are in use so I deleated thoes. On reboot I got an install window for the intel wireless card that was suspected as being bad by the customer so the customer just started using the linksys adapter as a work around. so now the intel wireless card is working and on the wireless network. and I have purged all of the unnessary devices out of the DM but on boot the screen still shows the same error about the notification dll?  


Just an update:
wireless box has a box on the bottom task bar that has a logo that looks like an A (or an audio wave) in the middle and it is surroundes at the top with green (( )) marks. I'm not sure that this will help but thought it could lead to manufacturer of a wireless card and I could find  an uninstall or a real dll to register.
