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)

Can not get on internet tells me there is wireless adapter problem


Your PC is already informing you that there is something wrong with the wireless card or wireless adapter of your computer which is the reason why you can't access the internet wirelessly. Usually its a driver issue and may require you to uninstall and reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter. You can do that if you have the installation disk of your wireless adapter. If your using a Windows OS laptop PC which there is a built in wireless card, you can go to device manager and uninstall the driver there then once the driver is uninstalled, click on the Action option on the upper portion of device manager page then click on scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver back.

I reinstalled xp on a Compaq Presario R3200 laptop and I can't figure out where to turn on the wireless radio. The wireless button does not have a light on and does nothing.


You must reinstall the wireless adapter's driver from the HP website. You can do this by one of two ways:
1. Connect the Ethernet cable (assuming your network adapter is functional and the driver is installed) to the Internet via the modem. Then log into the HP website - drivers and download section for your model. Download the driver to your computer and install it.
2. On another computer that can connect to the Internet, insert a USB flash drive into a USB port. Log in to the HP website as above and download the driver file into the flash drive. Transfer the file just downloaded to the laptop and install it.
Whenever the operating system (in some cases) is reinstalled, some drivers need to be installed separately from the operating system.

Wont connect ti internet


Same device as mine. and im on home hub aswell. Uninstall the drivers. Restart windows. Reinstall the drivers. Hopefully this should make a differance. Also when reinstalling. make sure the device is not plugged in until you finish installing drivers. And maybe put it into another usb when you are ready to try again. this is something good to try on older systems. or OS's.

Wireless Problems!


The computer looks for the cable because wireless is not working.

If wireless card is usb try removing laptop battery, unplugging power adapter and wifi cards, connect in five minutes and see if it works

If it still does not work, reinstall wireless card drivers.
If you have a disk reinstall them from disk.
If you lost the disk download drivers from the Internet, post model on fixya to get the link.

If the wireless card does not work after reinstalling drivers then it is probably faulty.

Note: if you use laptop internal wireless, usually you need to activate a switch to get it working.
