Cannot find network 1394 network adapter nor the standard Network Adapter connection

I have recently installed a wireless HP printer device and software, when the program had changed the network connection some how.

I lost my internet connection and had since uninstalled the program and now I cannot get the Network Wizard to to create any type of Network connection of any kind.

My computer is a Sony laptop working on XP. The 1394 Network adapter is not visible nor is the Network Adapter Connection.

I have check the Device Mgr and my 1394 Network IS VISIBLE and my INTEL (R) Pro / wireless 3945 ABG Network Connection adapter, plus the Marvell Yukon 88E8036 PCI-E Ethernet Controller which is in the Device Mgr, but is not visible in the network connection in my network place.

I have tried several times to use the wizard to create a new network connection without any luck.

Do you have any idea of how to troubleshoot this issue as I have searched the internet for programs to possibly resolved this without any luck.

Try having a System Restore on your computer back to the date before you installed the wireless HP printer device and software.

Where is the wifi


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. Usually a wifi enabled phone, computer, or whatever device, will recognize if there is wifi access near you. Most new HP (Hewlett-Packard) Pavilion notebook computers as of August 2010 include an internal wireless networking adapter, used to connect to a wireless network or router. Once connected to a router, the computer can connect to the Internet or other computers on the same network. If the wireless networking adapter is not allowing the computer to connect to a router, there are several steps that can be used to remedy the problem. Ensure that the wireless network adapter is turned on. Most HP Pavilion notebook computers have a switch that allows you to turn off the wireless adapter. The switch typically is located on the side of the computer or on the front. Ensure that the router and modem are plugged in and functioning. Ensure that the lights are illuminated on each device. Attempt to connect wirelessly using another computer, if possible, to test whether the connection problem is with the router or modem. Unplug the router and modem. Leave the power off for approximately 30 to 60 seconds, then turn them on again. Update the wireless network adapter driver using the computer's "Device Manager." To access the Device Manager, right-click on "Computer" or "My Computer," depending on the version of Windows, and click "Device Manager" from the left-side bar, or from the tab labeled "Hardware." Once in the Device Manager, expand the section labeled "Networking Devices" and right-click on the wireless network adapter. Click "Update driver software" to begin searching for an update. If an update is found, follow the onscreen instructions to install the update. Reinstall the wireless networking adapter if updating the driver does not remedy the problem. To reinstall the wireless adapter driver, right-click on it from the Device Manager and select "Uninstall." Once the device is removed from the computer, restart the computer. Once Windows loads, it will automatically detect and reinstall the driver. Run the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool (if the computer uses the Windows 7 operating system) to diagnose any networking issues the operating system may be able to correct. To access the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool, open the "Start" menu and type "Network" into the search field. Click "Network and Sharing Center" and then select "Diagnose and repair" from the left-side bar. The Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool will automatically run and will attempt to repair and establish the wireless connection. Attempt to manually connect to the wireless network. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Setup a new connection or network." Enter the network name, security type and network key into the text boxes and click "Next." If successful, click "Use the existing network" and then click "Connect." The network name, security type and network key can be obtained from the network administrator or by logging into the router. For help logging into the router, consult the instructions included with the router. You only need to do the following if the driver cant be installed. Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its "Enabled"imake sure key scroll http://support.microsoft.com/

I was able to connect to my HP Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop to my WiFi Network using NetGear. When I reconfigured the network I could connect to all other network like Dell Lptop , Nokia Smart Phone and HP...


Hi!

Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)

If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA.
Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter.
If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.


Hope it helped,

Bogdan

Hi i have the canon mp490 all in one printer and i was just wondering how to i get things to print from my lap top


1) Install the network adapter on the printer, if necessary. Many wireless printers have the adapter pre-installed, but if this isn't the case, turn off and unplug the printer. Then, remove the back cover on the adapter slot and place the adapter into the slot.


2) Plug in and turn on the printer. Then, insert the drivers CD that came with the printer into the CD drive of the computer. If you've misplaced the CD, the drivers can be downloaded from the website of the printer's manufacturer.


3) Configure the network adapter. Once the drivers installation has loaded, select "Using a wireless network" and then select "Next". Usually, there is a User Agreement at this point, to which you will agree and press "Next".


4) Connect the laptop to the printer using a USB cable. Connect one end into the USB port on the back of the printer and the other end to a free USB port on the computer.


5) Finish configuring the network adapter. After connecting the laptop and printer with the USB cable, select "Create or modify the printer's wireless settings" and then click "Next".


6) Connect the printer to a wireless network. The wireless setup utility will automatically open after the adapter has been configured. Find your wireless network in the "Wireless networks found in your area" and select "Next". Then verify this information on the next screen.


7) Connect the laptop to the printer through the wireless network. Now, disconnect the USB cable. Make sure that both the laptop and printer are connected to your network. If they are, you're now set up.

Wifi issue


Hi!

Check with your laptop's manual or specification sheet if it came with a built in wireless adapter. If it does, then you do not need to use a wireless adapter. All you have to do is to configure the wireless utility of your laptop to connect to your preferred wireless network.

You can also check Device Manager to check if there is a built in wireless adapter. Assuming you are using Windows XP - Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Look for Network Adapters. Check if there is anything under Network Adapters that says "wireless" or 802.11A/B or G. If there is, then again you do not need to install a wireless adapter.

Once you verified that there is a built in wireless adapter, just configure the wireless adapter utility to connect wirelessly to you preferred network.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Wireless connection disapeared from computer


Hello!

I am not sure exactly where you are checking for Wireless connections.

Anyhow, now a days we are hearing many Wireless adapter missing from Device manager issues.

Please get back to us with the Brand name of your laptop, OS installed.

Also check in Device manager for Wireless adapter.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.


Expand + Network adapter and check if the Wireless adapter is listed there or not.

If it is not listed there, then the issue is with the Wireless adapter itself.

This is most comon issue in HP COMPAQ notebooks.

if you are not aware of the Wireless adapter under + Network adapters in Device manager, then get back to us with the complete information under + Network adapter.

So thatI can help you in better way

Lost wireless capability


You need first to check if the wireless adapter is installed properly, Ricght click My computer>Properties>Hardware tab>Device manager>look for network adapter and check if the wireless adapter is listed if its there right click on it and go to properties and check the device status..

If the adapter is not showing under network adapter look for anything that says Unknown or other device and you that's where you can find a improper installed device you just need to install the driver for that.

Hope that helps........
