Specs: windows xp pro
Hello
the wifi has never been a problem until recently. When I turn the wifi switch on and start the laptop it goes to the page where you can choose to start the computer with the last good configuration ect. If I turn the wifi switch off the laptop starts normally. Any sugestions.
Thanks tdc

What happens if you boot the laptop without the wifi switch turned on, and then hit the wifi switch to ON after the laptop is already booted into Windows? Also, have you checked in Device Mgr to see if there might be a hardware issue with your wifi adapter?

The laptop boots up OK with the wifi switch off. If I boot up and then turn wifi switch on it goes to the last good configuration page.
Device manager where is that (you guessed it I am not very technical in regards to computers). tdc

Hello again I have found the device manager. The device is IntelR Pro Wireless 2200BG Network Connection. I guess this is what I should be looking at. It also states that the device is working properly.
Hope this helps. tdc

If couldn't find other solution, you can also uninstall and reinstall wireless card driver (try to get latest driver from manufacturer's website), probably can help.
