Wireless BULLCRAP. Help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is the wrong section.

But I have a Acer Aspire one ZG5 Laptop, 1gb ram, Atheros 5007EG wireless. I just reformatted it because of all the bloated crap I didn't want. Well, i got all the drivers installed no problem, but the problem is.. The Wireless thing DETECTS theres wireless around, but won't show up in the SSID List (This is windows configure thing) I've tried the 3rd party crap, and it didn't help either, it'd detect but wouldn't connect EVEN WITH the proper WPA passphrase. I know it's NOT the computer, it connected to wireless just fine. detected it and everything. After a reformat.. it'll connect if the Wireless is UNSECURED and I know the SSID, but that's still an up hill battle to do even that.

so please help !

if you are using 3rd party software you will need to make sure the windows settings are set to use 3rd party.

There should be a checkbox somewhere that will say 'do not use windows to connect to wireless networks' or something along that line.

Before I installed the 3rd party software, I used the windows thing, the balloon would pop up, and it'd say wireless detected.... but when i brought up the list, it said no networks detected. 3rd party software detected the networks, but wouldn't let me connect. especially if it was WPA
