Fun without wires

Given Up On Wireless

without comments

Well, I went ahead and did the Service Pack 2 upgrade for Win XP Pro, and have had nothing but problems recently with my wireless adaptor. I don’t know if it’s directly related or not, but basically my adaptor would drop out and not allow me to get an IP (even though it thought it was connected successfully). Obviously this is a problem for getting internet access.

With no time to waste figuring out what the hell is going on, I’ve disconnected the adaptor and resorted to plugging my desktop directly into my router (ugh – cables!), and I have complete access again. What tells me that it’s the adaptors fault is that my laptop and iPAQ still work just fine, connecting to the same router/cable modem etc.

So now my desktop is back to a cabled connection, but I suppose that kind of makes sense. Somewhere along the line I’ll sort it out, but for now that will have to do.
