Wifi Device not Initializing
Posted on 2011-05-09
This is my first question after becoming a qualified expert. so here it goes...
I have Windows 7 SP1 installed on a fairly old PC (DELL Optiplex GX280). A wired DSL connectivity to the LAN card and another D-LINK Wireless G DWA-110 USB Adapter, my original purpose was to make a hotspot using connectify for my laptop HP DV-2725ee and also for my I-mate Ultimate 9502 and it worked fine. But now the problem i am having is that connectify creates the hotspot but when i try to connect it. It's just simply disconnecting. Initially i was clueless so as to why this was happening, but thorough checking revealed only one thing which is rather odd. If i just create a hotspot using connectify or even an Ad-hoc using native windows 7 connection options. No matter what the client device i used (my laptop, my ppc or two other laptops of my friends) it just tries to connect and without any error disconnects. The only way to connect it now is first to make a ad-hoc connection on my laptop... connecting my pc as a client to that connection after it connects to it, disconnect it. Create an ad-hoc or hotspot on PC. now every device can connect to my pc.
This is rather annoying since my brother needs the laptop sometimes for his studies and i cannot connect my PPC to it since i can't create an ad-hoc from it.
I know that reinstalling windows may resolve the issue (cuz my WLAN adapter works fine at my friend's house). but this is out of question since my pc is scattered right now ... and with so many development apps installed. i don't want to reinstall windows as i am going to upgrade my pc very soon.
Lets see what you experts can make up, i am counting on you guys since its my first question
