    Linksys Online Wireless Configuration/Repair

    I came across this link yesterday in my local paper (The Philadelphia Inquirer) in a weekly computer help and advice column. I don't have any problems with my wireless setup, but I ran the configuration check on my system and was told that I don't have any problems, so from that perspective, it works pretty well !!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Seriously though, it appears to be a tool that will be useful to the novice, a time saving convenience to the experienced user and perhaps even to an IT professional.

    That said, get your wireless network checked and/or fixed here.

    I was really interested in this link, however there's too many restrictions for me to use it easily at home.

    For instance, you must use IE 5.0 (or higher) on Windows for the adapter check (top link). That I was able to get around.

    For the second link, you are required to use WindowsXP (Home or Professional). That computer is too far away at the moment, I've only got access to my WindowsME PC.

    As with most other computer related things, "your mileage may vary." Sorry to hear this didn't work out for you. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>

    Well, it worked for me -- more or less. I met all the requirements. Ran the diagnostic. It says my laptop doesn't have a wireless card. But the laptop says the wireless card is working fine. Still no wireless connection. Rats.
