Connecting to non-preferred network/cannot see "all available networks" and choose which is preferred.

Post by David Tru » Wed, 18 Feb 2004 10:33:16

I'm running XP and connecting through an Orinoco card to a wireless network.
I do NOT use WAP encryption.

With the growth of wireless my apartment has come into range of several
networks, and my XP machine sometimes connects to the wrong network (which
gets me on the 'Net but doesn't allow me to see my printer).

When I try to select the preferred network using "Available Networks", that
screen remains grayed out-- I cannot see the available networks.

All of this time, however, I remain connected to one (if not my preferred)
network and able to get on the Net.

Any suggestions?

My objective is of course to make sure I stay connected to my preferred

Thanks much


1. WLAN showing up in Preferred Networks but not Active Networks--WHY

2. Unable to delete a Preferred Network in the Wireless network

I was unable to change any setting in a preferred network site. I was also
unable to remove it. Every time I try to modidy or remove that site, I got
when I press okay to accept change:

At least one of your changes was not applied successfully to the wireless

I'm able to create,modify or remove other site except first one. I try to
removed the drivers and installed the latest one. Every preferred network
site was remove with the new drivers except the one I need to remove

Thanks in advance
