Lost wireless  connection

  1. My wireless connection worked fine until I did a MS update yesterday. OS is XP with ZoneAlarm (this is up to date).

    My network is found but when I click connect it tries to connect but then stops. There is no offer to do a trouble shooter.

    The last time that this happened it was a compatibility problem with ZoneAlarm but that doesn't seem to be the problem this time.

    I have tried the ipconfig release and renew from the cmd but get a msg that no action can be taken on the unconnected wireless. ARGGGGHHHH!

    Any help out there? Thanks

    Have you tried turning ZoneAlarm off, rebooting, startup and see if the problem now works? (help see if it is ZoneAlarm related)

    I just uninstalled ZoneAlarm and restored the system to before the MS updates were downloaded. That worked. Thanks.
