Intel wireless drivers for Gateway 450ROG

Recently ran into an issue where someone did not have all the original materials for their laptop. One of the issues was the wireless NIC acting up. The drivers were kind of a pita to locate so I figured I'd post a link here to the Intel drivers.

download nic


If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.

nic card issues?


Do you have any 2.4MHz cordless phones in the house or is the computer near a microwave? those two items can cause interference. You can go to Dell.com, go to support then download drivers/software, enter in your service tag is best if you know it? find the network card driver and download it. You can find out which NIC card you have by going to my computer, system, then device manager and right click on the NIC, then properties, it will tell you what card you have.

Wireless connection works but no plug in connection


The wired nic in your laptop will have a separate ip address than your wireless nic. I suspect you either have the router not set to hand out ip addresses, the info it is handing out is wrong, or you may have a static ip set. Did you ever have the laptop working on the wired nic?

Try disabling the wireless connection, plug up the cat 5 cable, open a dos prompt and type;
ipconfig /all

Notice the information. Now unplug the cable, enable the wireless connection and do the same for the wireless nic. The ip address should be different, but everything else should be the same. Let me know what you find.

One card interfering with other connections


Have you checked to make sure the laptop wireless NIC isn't acting as an AP by mistake? That could explain both desktop and laptop connectivity issues. Just a thought.
