Just purchased the Pink U100 from Argos at the weekend with XP Pro pre-installed.
Loaded it up but it cannot view any wireless networks when trying to connect to my broadband.
I have another laptop with wireless connection and works fine. Am with Sky Broadband so have the Netgear DG9 series Router, and never had problems in the past with this.
Checked and the wireless card inside is the RTL8187SE wireless adapter. I have tried removing the drivers and re-installing again, have downoaded the latest drives available and tried the ones from the MSI Support site.
I have also check this http://topaix.blogspot.com/2007/11/how-to-start-wireless-zero.html
but the XP Service is running ok.
I noticed with the RALINK Wireless Adapters there is a config utility which you can use to control the wireless networks, is there a tool for the RTL8187SE? I saw on the driver download that it says driver and utility, however after installing the drivers there is no tool available ? So have to let windows xp control the wireless network access.
Any help would be grateful as am going round the bend with this.
I contacted Argos who have said I need to take the netbook back to the shop I bought it from in order to get a refund but i purchased it from an argos when i was away so its like a 80 mile round trip! My local argos at carlisle would not let me get a refund.
