1. go to the manufacturer of your wireless card adapter
2. dowload the latest driver for your wireless adapter matching the operating system you're using.
3. uninstall the driver by going to start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager> go into network adapters>right click the network adapter for which you want to reinstall the driver and click uninstall (you may want to restart your computer). when you do the new hardware wizard may come up and you may want to do either one this:
a. if your wireless adapter is a usb adapter: unplug it, run the driver installation file you download in step 1 and 2 and replug the usb adapter as directed.
b. if your wireless adapter is a pci card: you can run the installation driver file you download or you may want to manually install the driver using the add new hardware that came up when you restart your computer and point to the folder where the driver is (cd or driver you download from internet)

I deleted the wireless internet off my desktop. Can I get it back?


Wireless is acctually located in you Control Panel. If it was on desktop it would be just a shortcut. If you click on start, control panel and then depending are you in classic view or category view you will see icon that says network connections or internet and network connections in windows xp or network and sharing center in wondows 7 and vista. Once open you will see option for wireless connection. If you actually deleted drivers for wireless then you need your original cd with drivers to install it again. Just open the cd and install the wireless drivers.Hope this helps.

NIC internet connection problem


I would start by looking in device manager for any devices with a bang on them (a bang is a question mark or exclamation point). It's possible that your wireless adapter does not have drivers loaded for it. Usually, before a reinstall you want to back up all your drivers, because this will happen. I can recommend a program called Driver Magician Lite available for download here:
http://download.cnet.com/Driver-Magician-Lite/3000-2242_4-10521270.html?tag=mncol

But since you don't have this luxury, you now want to look for devices in your system that have driver problems, specifically your network adapter(s). Can you connect with an ethernet cable?

Assuming you find the wireless adapter (or unknown device) in Device Manager, you can try these things:
1. try installing a device driver; connect to the internet using a cable for now
2. update the current driver; connect to the internet using a cable
3. remove the device and let Windows "find it" again and reinstall the driver to fix a corrupted driver file

The yellow ? indicate the various device drivers that was not installed, which would include the LAN card and or wireless card. That is why you are not connecting to the Internet.
You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers: -

I have a Dell 3100 desktop,I need to know how to reinstall my network driver (wireless driver)could you walk me through it,I have genuine Driver disc that came with computer but I dont know which one to...


If you are reinstalling a driver, it is typically best to go with the newest version of that driver. The best way to get the newest drivers is directly from Dell.
If your desktop does not have internet without this driver, download the file (as follows) on another computer and move it to your dimension and install (as follows).
Browse to Dell's driver download page:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen
There will be a service tag somewhere on the tower of your Dell 3100 desktop, type in this service tag on the product identification page. Note: the drivers here may not be applicable if you have upgraded your computer's hardware since purchasing it.
Be sure to choose the correct operating system you plan on running on this machine. Under category you can select "Network". This will bring up all of the network adapter drivers. Select the first driver labeled "Dell Utility" which applies to the wireless USB adapter.
Choose the "Download" button and save the driver to your computer. Double click this file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the software.
Your wireless internet device should now work!

Try uninstalling all wireless drivers for device and reinstalling device. Also check all settings in you wireless Hub, or internet wireless. Most of the time the settings don't match up system depending on what device is being used.

I am reinstalling my internet connection on my laptop because I had to have the laptop repaired. I am getting an error message that the WPC54G is inactive.


try reinstalling the driver for the wireless adaptor.

The WPC54G is a linksys wireless adaptor installed on your laptop. It is possible the technician overlooked reinstalling the driver, and should be called upon to correct his mistake. If the adaptor worked before you took it in, and now it doesn't, he/she is liable to fix the problem.
