Re: Wireless Assistant is malfunctioning

Is this a Windows question? If so:

a) you are in the wrong forum category. Some people here (Including me) pretend to not have any Windows experience.

b) if it is Windows, can you go to 'Control Panel' -> 'Network Connections', then enable the device?

c) if it's a different OS, more information would be helpful.

Hope it helps

Re: Wireless Assistant is malfunctioning

when you have previously installed 3rd party wireless management software, this takes over control of the wireless settings. The hint Windows itself shows is helpfull: enable automatic settings. in other words: be sue to have Windows automatically configure your wireless network. You may als check the service called "wireless zero configuration" - and make sure this services is started / up and running.

This is just some practical advice - please be more specific if this didn't help. A screenshot and an error message help helpers help.
