    wireless card is Realtek 8185

    running open system with no prot. on channel 1

  • Hi,


    After checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows XP related issue. As this forum focuses on Windows Vista specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows XP forum:




    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.  Thank you for your understanding.


    Meanwhile, I would suggest install Microsoft Security Essentials to protect the system from being infected with virus.
