  • Wireless Configuration Issue

    Have a wireless access issue for a Toshiba Laptop and an installed internal wireless adapter. The following is found.

    - IP config recognizes the card
    o MAC address noted
    o DHCP enabled
    o Auto Configuration: YES
    o Media State: Disconnected

    - Device Manager
    o 802/11b preamble: Long & Short
    o Map registers: 256
    o Network Address: not present
    o Power Save Mode: Off
    o Radio Status: On
    o Scan valid interval: 60

    - Diagnostics
    o Card: not enabled
    o Client adapter: not associated to an access point
    o Card: not authenticated
    o Client Adapter: not configured

    - Note: use system preferences [network icon] to set client adapter network configuration

    The wireless router can be seen by every other wireless device in the area.

    I write to inquire about the following:
    In the device manager… can one manually enter a network address? What would be the syntax? Can this be determined from router interface information? Not sure what would/should be entered.
    This is a Vista Ultimate machine… Not sure where "system preferences" is in the context of the diagnostic report. Not sure what network icon is being referred to… Guidance sought
