Technically, I was never away…
So I have this old Compaq and it currently has Ubuntu 9.10 and XP Professional. When I use Ubuntu I can get onto my wireless internet. However, if I try to connect using XP, it locates the device name and everything but I just cant connect. Any suggestions? My guess I that it needs the right softwareâ€¦…[/QUOTE]
You will need:
- Correct up to date driver
- Remove energy saving settings
- Set up a nice clean channel on your WiFi
- Make sure you have the correct security settings both on your WiFi router and your Wireless Network Interface Card (WPA, WEP, WPA PSK, WPA II, etc)
Sometimes Windows thinks it’s smart and automatically chooses the wrong security setting.
