we need to determine if your wireless network adapter working by
right click my computer icon then go to properties, click on hardware tab then device manager.
it will show you a list of installed components, click the plus sign on you network adapters, you will see a sub category for the wireless adapter you can double click it to find its status whether it is working properly or not.
i also need to know the brand and model of your laptop to determine if there is an updated driver for your built in wireless adapter....
My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5000
When I click on Network Adapters, the only sub categories available are:
1) Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter
2) SiS 900 Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
I cannot see anything about a Wireless Adapter...
Thank you for your help! It is much appreciated!
Hi, the Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter is your built in wireless adapter. right click that then check the status if it is working properly, it would tell you that on the status, on that you will also have an option to go and update the driver of your card.
