I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop connected to my wireless broadband (UK ISP, o2) and a desktop PC which - until a few days ago - was connecting fine.
On my desktop PC I am running Windows XP and, using the XP connection UI, I can see the wireless network I want to connect to. Attempting to connect gives the error:
Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available network, and try to connect again.
Trying again makes no difference.
I've rebooted, reinstalled the network drivers, reinstalled the card itself (Belkin 802.11g Network Adapter) and tried manually assigning IP addresses, neither of which have worked.
Speaking of IP addresses, running "ipconfig" in the DOS shell gives me the following error:
Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media Disconnected
No amount of "ipconfig/release" or "renew" makes the slightest difference.
Any ideas, folks? I'm beginning to worry about the future of my PC.
Any help appreciated.
