Did anyone ask you to post this computer info?

You don't even describe what your problem is beyond "media disconnected"

So I will guess....

I can see from your ipconfig you have a ip address for your wired interface so what is your issue? Not getting wireless?

Usually reason for that is you didn't put in the correct passphrase for the wireless encryption on the client side. Of course this assumes you set a wireless encryption passphrase.

Did you configure the wireless aspect of the router????

Wand3r3r,

I've been working in another thread with Old Rich and with so many Questions asked from users most of the time they ask for the information. SO I tried to expidite it. If this is too much info I'm sorry.
I can connect with wired but not wireless. When I try to connect to my Network or wireless connect that is detected by Windows....it doesn't even ask me for the passphrase or network key. Nothing prompts up except detecting network system. When I click on other network it asks for the key. I have two other laptops that are connected with no problem. And from what I can see it might be a Client issue because when I log into the router stats I cn see this computer in the stats. But when I look at the wireless icon in the taskbar it has a x in it. Also saying,"Media Disconnected." Dvmagmt is great. So this is what I have just done.
Took the laptop to another hot spot and it has connected fine. So it has to do with my network router ie settings or config of either the laptop or router.
Did this help with the question?
Thanks

Why the second thread for the same issue? That makes it difficult to manage.

Did the second hotspot have security? . . WEP or WPA? Your adaptor may not be capable of WPA

If so then you would know the encryption level [wep/wpa/wpa2].
As Old Rich has suggested does your wireless card support the level set for encryption?

If unsure then set your wireless to no encryption and then set your wireless to none. Can you connect?

Sorry Rich,
Just got frustrated and walked away for a couple days.
Then after researching again it seems most of the same problem I was having was in the Protocols and Routing.
To answer your questions....The hot spot whcih I can connect to with the wireless is unsecure. This is the step I have taken today. I have been working in my home since the issue came up with a new format of XP home service 3. I'm not at the home now, so I'll have to test it later tonite. Thanks for the input. A lot of threads think it is XP the issue...but it seems in my case it might just be the Router/modem not liking it.

I doubt it is XP . . if you can connect after removing the security from your router, you will have identified the culprit

Okay one and all,
Got home and tried the puter with different settings from the wireless card and router and connected. Setting from encryption to no encryption and then set the wireless to none. Adaptor not capable of WPA. Problem Solved!
Thanks for the help. Spot on!
Have a Very Merry Christmas and a New Year
