Help!!!

I have a 3Com office connect firewalled 11g router, I also have 2 other wireless pc cards one for a laptop and a AM1772 pc card for a desktop (all system running under windows XP). The other day I had the urge to test out a TL-W220M wireless adapter, which worked well however not as well as the AM1772. I disconnected the TL- WN220M and reinstalled the drivers for my AM1772.

NOw it does not connect to my SSID, infact neither of them now connect to the Network. The card detects the network but cannot connect onto it anymore. My laptop connection is still fine.

I have been onto the 3com interface thingy and disabled the router firewall but that still did not solve the problem, I have also reset the router and that has done nothing. Which means its nothing to do with my router + my laptop is still running fine.... Perhaps its something to do with my system, I hear Service pack 2 messes around with things then again everything was working fine a couple of weeks ago and I had SP2 then as well


Guys do you know what the problem could be???

Any help would be much obliged

Also not to confuse anybody, there are 3 computers involved here, the main computer which has the modem and the router (running fine), a laptop which has wireless pc card (runs fine) , and a desktop (has Am1772 does not work any longer)

Just to save time so that we don't go round in loops

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset [log_file_name]

Note: the log_file_name needs to be specified, e.g. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

The strange thing is I can't even check out my ip address, when I go to run and type ipconfig a message just says media disconnected..
