OK so the integrated network card isn't even showing up in the device manager. Did you check for it under other devices?


let's run these and then ipconfig, http://www.spychecker.com/download/...nsockxpfix.html
AND this http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm


Also, go to your network connection for the wireless card and see in netbios shows up under protocols.

Network Card ? Not sure what to look for in Device manager. Is that soemthing that should be inside the computer( factory installed?) I needed an ethernet card to access the internet before I loaded XP

I ran the 2 fixes.

In wirless connections, properties, internet protocol, advanced tcp/ip settings, WINS, Netbios settings - default is checked. THe other 2 options are Enable or disable netbios settings over TCP/Ip

thank you for your help so far ( and patience)

Ron

No problem. Thanks for your patience, I know it can be frustrating having network problems and these long threads can get confusing. Which is why I'd like to pause and take stock of the situation as it stands. Please correct anything that I state that is wrong.

You have 2 network devices in your laptop. The integrated linksys card (wired) and a PCMIA wireles G card.

You're running XP (home or PRO?) and it sees the wireless card, but not the linksys ethernet (network) card. Check to see if anything is listed under other in the device manager.

I don't think You should need netbios over TCP unless you are doing printer or file sharing, but I'd enable it anyway.

What is the current state of running ipconfig?

What is the current state of your wireless connection?

Run netdiag again but with these options (netdiag/test:ipconfig /v).

I am trying to get the wireless linksys network adapter to work.
"You have 2 network devices in your laptop. The integrated linksys card (wired) and a PCMIA wireles G card."
In device manager there are 2 separate listings. They are:
+network adapters
Wireless-G-Notebook adapter v2.0
+ PCMCIA ADAPTER
Toshiba ToPIC95 CardBus Controller
Toshiba ToPIC95 CardBus Controller
Should the wireless adapter be listed under the PCMCIA?

XP home which was an upgrade from win98.

Ran IPconfig & netdiag here are the results:

At the risk of getting shot, I'm going to send you off to another forum that seems like it may have the solution to your problem. Look at the last few postings as they are reports from some people who worked through a similar problem.

NP. I think my last message might have been a little unclear. I meant that I was sending you off to read the posting at the other site (instead of repeating what was said there on this site). I thought seeing the context of what they said worked would be helpful.

If the steps from the other site don't solve your problem, I am still willing to try to help. Let us know how things go.

I went to the web site you suggested and I performed the following:
Quote-
My Resolution:
I uninstalled TCPI/IP protocol, Client for MS networks, and F&P sharing service from the NIC. Rebooted. Go back to Network connections, you should have no services, clients or protocols installed (or "bound" to the adapter). Click install to reinstall the necessary protocol, client and services. Add TCP/IP, Client for MS networks, and F&P sharing service. Immediately after doing this my NIC was active and it received a DHCP assigned IP address. Problem solved.
Yes Problem solved. I also installed a few other "things" i.e
Qos Packet Scheduler
Microsoft lpv6 developer edition
NWlink NetBIOS
NWLink IPX/SPX........
Once again Thank you!!!!!!

Worked like a charm

Thanks Ron F.,

As described, I went to: Network connections>LAN>properties and:
1) Uninstalled Client for MS Networks
2) Uninstalled File and Print Sharing
3) Deselected TCP/IP.
4) Rebooted the laptop.
5) Reinstalled client, service and turned back on TCP/IP.

Voila!

NOTE: My problems occurred after Repairing a WinXP install.

Prior to performing the steps above, I couldn't even disable my LAN, which said connected but with no IP, not even 0000's. {cmd>ipconfig just said "WindowsXP IP configuration" and then blank} My wireless card was also not working properly.

As soon as I rebooted in step 4, my wireless adapter started working again. Then as soon as I completed step 5, my LAN was also working properly again.

Thanks all for the diligent follow-through.

-smh

I fixed it!!

ok i've did almost everything i could by following instructions from here & google results till my back nearly breaks! But nothing seems to work for me!
And my symptom is of the exact described by the posters in the various forums - then I came across this site
http://forums.scotsnewsletter.com/in...0&#entry163318

And did a simple check in my C:/windows/system32/driver and realised that I do not have a file tcpip.sys in that dir!! So went ahead and did a simple copy of the file into the folder and reboot. Clasped my hand tightly and pray to the lord above - if this fails, my next alternative is a jackhammer!

Guess what? IT WORKS! And among all the things I had to do this is the simplest thing I need to follow. Thought this is a good sharing for some of you since, this has been one of the most frustrating encounter I ever had with my PC and i think it might make sense before you embark on all of those complex solutions suggested take alook if you have that tcpip.sys in your folder first!
