HP Mini 1000 running XP, It shows the wireless as connected, but will not connect with IE nor Firefox. If I hard wire into the modem, everything works, its just wirelessly that I have an issue.
Can someone help point me in the proper direction to fix this?
Yes I am. I have a feeling is something simple, but I have been off windows for a while and its really amazing how fast your forget the tricks. It says I am connected at 54.0Mbps, signal strength is excellent. Nothing else using this wireless is having any issues.
try turning off wep or your password on the router...if the device connects..then it an issue with device wifi drivers and wep.
if it wont connect with the password off...check that your running the newest drivers for the wifi adaptor. make sure that in windows networking the buttons are on for windows to auto find network ip. most times people lock a device into a set ip range that may have been needed for school or work.
