    How To Start From Scratch!

    How to remove all instances of wireless networking? Because I had it
    working easily when 1st installed now after it failed (and all
    hardware passes diagnostics) and the WLAN says it's connected...it
    will not share the dial-up connection (yes dial-up!).
    It seems the desktop with the connection has 3 instances of wireless
    even after deleting the driver and reinstalling.
    Thanks for any help (I am very lean on networking troubleshooting)

    Please restate your problem with greater clarity.

    What you seem to be saying is that you have a desktop computer with a
    dial-up Internet connection and are attempting to share that connection
    wirelessly. Is this correct?

    What version of Windows are you using (on how many computers)?

    What do you mean by "three instances of wireless"?

    What driver did you uninstall?

    What is not working and what error messages (in full, please) are you
    getting? On what computer(s)?

    What "WLAN" says it's connected?

    Correct

    Seems like left-overs from previous installs.

    The driver for wireless listed in the Dev.Mgr. Syba Wireless 11g USB
    adapter.

    Actually no messages except no connection to the internet when opening
    the IE.

    Do the following on both computers:

    1. Click Start / Run
    2. Type the three letters cmd
    3. Click OK
    4. Type the following commands and press the Enter key after each of them:
    set comp > c:\test.txt
    ipconfig /all >> c:\test.txt
    notepad c:\test.txt
    5. Paste the contents of the result from *each* PC into your reply.

    Also see the following for directions on configuring Internet Connection
    Sharing:
    http://www.practicallynetworked.com/...rverdialup.htm

    It's still not clear to me where you are seeing the "leftovers from
    previous installs." If you are looking at the list of "Preferred
    networks" as in the following screenshot, you can get rid of them with
    the "Remove" button.

    Thanks Lem!!! I got it working using the link you gave me (http://
    http://www.practicallynetworked.com/...rverdialup.htm)
    Somehow the ICS was set to "Wireless Connection 1" and not the dial-up
    connection.
    Thanks, I must have spent hours trying to figure-out a very basic
    thing!

    Hi
    Are there actual Connections, or the active conne5tion says Connection #4,
    and you assume that there is 3 others?
    If so, do not worry there is No others the number is an Id number and does
    not imply more connection.
    Maybe this can Help, http://www.ezlan.net/wireless.html
