    Since applying Windows Vista sp1, I, too, have the same problem. Device Manager indicates I don't even have the device! I tried updating drivers but that didn't resolve the problem either. I checked BIOS setting and enabled the adapter...still nothing! HELP!

depending on the model you will have a wireless LAN switch - this will be turned off - typiclally the switch will have a small satellite receiver icon.
They can be in different places on different models but typically they are on the front.

How can I turn on the wireless capability on my Asus G60VX laptop? the switch on the front left is on and still nothing. trouble shooting says wireless capability is turned off. it was working fine untill...


I can figure out that your laptop runs Windows Vista. Go to Control panel, then Network and Sharing centre and then go to Manage Network Connections and see if the Wireless Network Connections icon is disabled, make sure it is enabled and not connected. Try disabling and enabling it again. If still no go, try to manually turn off the wireless switch and turn it back ON. Check the light status (if any), confirm the error message too. If still, it seems not to be working, then the internal switching might have gone bad. You need to get the laptop serviced.

I have a balance 557s laptop that the wireless wont work it shows the icon with a red x wont turn on when you push the wireless button


Sometimes when you get a red x against the wireless icon, it means the wireless card did not get an IP address from the wireless router or the router needs resetting.
To get the router to issue a new IP address to the laptop, right click on the wireless icon and click on Repair.
If this doesn't work, power off thr router for 30 secs and power up the router, wait till the LEDs on the router are on then boot up the laptop or do a Repair on the wireless icon.

My network says that it can't find the internal wireless adapter


You may have to reboot your PC and try to connect again.
If you have "Viewed all available networks" and tried to connect to your Wireless network but cannot what kind of error message are you getting ?

To quickly find out if you have Internet Connectivity coming in at all from your Internet Service Provider turn off your wireless switch on your laptop and try to connect a cat5 directly from your PC ( connect cat5 cable to what looks like a slightly larger telephone jack on the side or back of your laptop) to the back of your router and see if you browse the internet. You may have to reset your router (unplug and plug)
