Intel WM3B2100 802.11B wireless LAN card driver

We have received donated Gateway notebook computers at our school. they are "fitted with intel WM3B2100 802.11B wireless LAN card". However, the driver for this does not seem to be present or working. I suppose that the memory was cleared before it was given to us. Is there a way to reactivate the wireless card/download drivers for it?

    • If the Wireless LAN cards came pre-equipped with the laptops, then the drivers will be available for download straight from gateway's support site found here:
    • Enter your serial number on the back of the gateway, and it will direct you to the correct driver files you'll need.
    • If the wireless cards didn't come shipped with the laptop, you should be able to use the intel support site found here:
Either method should get you to a compatible driver :-)

No driver for wireless on my gateway loptop model NV79


Below are links to three versions of the driver for the NV79's wireless LAN. Which is the correct one will depend on the manufacturer of your notebook's on-board wireless card. For simplicity sake, I recommend just downloading and installing all three; your computer will be able to determine which is the correct one.

Here are the links:
Intel: Download
Atheros: Download
Realtek: Download

Each of these links was obtained from Gateway's official driver download web site for the NV79 Series notebook computer (which you can access here).

If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

My gateway laptop cant connect to the internet. _When I plug a cable, the red light in the port does not respond _ The WIFI does not respond


Hello John,
It seems that: 1. Your LAN controller and the WiFi controller could be disabled in your BIOS setup.To re-enable them, if applicable,
  • Press the F1(or F2 ) key repeatedly after restarting the computer to enter the BIOS setup.
  • Navigate through your BIOS and locate the settings for LAN conroller and wireless, and select Enabled to enable them.
2. You may not have the appropriate drivers installed on your laptop for your network controllers. Upon further investigation, your laptop runs on the following network hardware:
  • ActionTec IEEE 802.11b network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94306 IEEE802.11g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94300 IEEE802.11a/g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
Download and install your drivers for the hardware above from: Wireless Drivers(Broadcom BCM94306) from http://www.soft32.com/download_175098.html Broadcom BCM94306 10/100Mbps LAN drivers from http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/downloaddrivers.php
Hope this solution helps.Good day.

I reinstalled winxp sp3 on a gateway 450 rog. I was able to install all the drivers except the network controller and it also won't recognize the wireless adapter, any thoughts or ideas?


I had the same problem.
The "Network Controller" in my case had to do with the wireless network driver on my 450ROG.
None of the drivers that are available for 450ROG on the Gateway Support site worked correctly.
Here's what I did to solve the problem:
1. Flip the computer over. 2. On the back, you may see a little module that says "Fitted with Intel WM3B2100 802.11b". That's the built-in wireless network card (had no idea this computer had one, I inherited it). 3. Go to the Intel support site:http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ 4. Do a search for the "WM3B2100" driver. 5. Download and install the driver.
Fixed it for me!
Full info about the Gateway 450ROG is available at: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/450ROG/3501353sp66.shtml This helped get me on the right track.

Computer crashes


A few things can cause this.
  • Shorted wireless card
  • Weak power plug/connection
  • Weak regulator (inside the computer)
  • Hardware driver issues. You should get a blue screen
Having done a restore eliminates the bad driver really. So we should expect one of the others. If it is a weak power supply, connector it should shutdown when using the cd drive
Try another wireless card if possible.

Notebook does not connect to LAN or wireless


The dlinks have a tendency to reset to factory settings when you do a firmware upgrade. Connect to the router using a wired connection or using another computer, confirm the settings are what you want, not the defaults. NEVER use the default wireless name (in this case: dlink), always change it to something nobody around you is using!
