      ----------------------------------------
      Here is the scenario - Win XP Sp2, Sony system, LinkSys WRT54G Router - I got the same error as above mentioned.

      Router - 1) firewalled
      2) Wireless MAC filter is on

      The following solution is worked for me
      a) add the wireless mac - usually we get this from [C>ipconfig ] command prompt. Here in this case we can't find it as it says "Medium - Medium state disconnected". But you can find your MAC from device manager - network adapters - wirless card - right click on this and you should able to find it on one of the tabs.

      The above solution worked for me in my scenario. Give a try b'coz





    how do i add a wireless mac?





To add a wireless MAC, (physical address), you open a web browser and type in the address bar the default gateway of your router (this is usually 192.168.0.1; check cmd-->ipconfig to be sure). It should take you to a page where you see a picture of your router and some options. You will probabley want "Advanced Options." Then click, if necessary, "Begin Advanced Setup / Configuration." On the left side is a list of options. Choose blah blah blah MAC ADDRESS, and then it will ask if you want to enable MAC List exceptions. Enable it. Then choose "Allow List," and type in the mac address as exampled,( e.g. 00-hf-57-34-7i-88). Hit ok, and do Save And Restart to restart router afresh with these new settings. I am using an ACTIONTEC router, but this should be the general course for router MAC adress fixes.

Goodluck.

I have the same Wireless Router you have the NetGear WPN842. When you are setting up the Access List ensure you don't have the 'Turn Access Control On' checked without having detected the Wireless card. Otherwise, it will never allow access Wireless Cards. What I did was deselect this Turn Access Control On, and refresh to get the wireless card. Once it shows, then select Turn Access Control On and select the Wireless Card in the list. That worked for me.

I had the same issue with my pc. It took me a minute to figure it out but the solution was simple. Go in and delete all of your wireless connections associated with your router on the computer. Then rebuild your connection and this should fix the issue. Once i did this i rebooted and it worked and has not had this problem in several days since the fix and i have two kids and myself using this computer. Hope this helps you guys.

      Try creating a restore point, removing the wireless card from the device manager, and rebooting the computer. Windows should pick out the drivers automatically.




    sorry but using restore point wont solve this kind`a problem 100 % alltimes so ill just like to redirect this isue tohttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/239924/ till some one makes a full report as in what he/she thinks could be the cause of this issue / im trouble shooting same thing rightnow Emoticon i have changed the value under nic properties configure/advanced to a dif. media type but it didnt work so.. when tried to recover back using the default value as before the nic stays unavailable and had to go through a new setup of os to get it back. well.. its an anoying issue Emoticon still at it Emoticon
