Windows xp no longer recognizes my wireless antenna/program

\015 I've had this problem on 2 computers now - after service pack 3 installed windows no longer recognizes my wireless antenna. Some one fixed it (on one computer) by changing the settings such that windows became the program that controls wireless connections not lynxis. I tried updating the Belkin driver on this computer but that still didn't work. Would like to try that other solution does anyone know how to change it so that windows controls the wireless network?\015

Answers :

It sounds like the problem you are having is that the controller for your wireless equipment is over-ridding the built-in Windows wireless controller. From what you stated in your question, the problem was solved before by reverting to the built-in Windows wireless controller (by re-installing Windows). The specific steps for your configuration depends on many factors (such as make and settings of the controller software/driver), I would suggest going to the control panel for the network adapters and opening the properties. Click on the "View Wireless Networks" button, if you don't see the list of available networks then there is an option to manage the settings from an external program. To solve the problem, revert to the built-in Windows controller; to give specific steps I would need to know more about your setup and installation.

The standard method is as follows:
1) Open the "Control Panel"
2) (For Classic View skip to step 3) Open the "Network and Internet Connections", then choose "Network Connections" towards the bottom
3) Double click "Wireless Network Connection"
4) Click on the "Properties" button (towards the bottom of the box)
5) Click on the "Wireless Networks" tab
6) Click the check box "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" (to put a check in the box)
To change windows to the controlling program, click on Start, then head over to Control Panel. Under Control Panel, double click on the icon for Network Connections. There, find the Wireless Network Connection. Right mouse click on it and go to properties. After the Properties Window pops up, Click on the Wireless Networks Tab. There, check mark the box which says "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings." This will activate windows control over the network card. Hopefully this helps.
