Question about Gateway (802.11usb) Wireless Adapter

Gateway TL-58 No Wireless Adapter Installed

I'm clueless...my friend had an issue with her operating system, so I reloaded the OS from the Manufacturer (Gateway) provided software. Now it doesn't recognize the Wireless Adaptor. I can get on the internet by hard connect to the router as the Ethernet Adapter is working, but need some direction on the Wireless problem. Is it just drivers that are needed? Is that why there is an error message in Device Manager for an Unknown USB device? Thanks so muich.

Is WIFI installed and ready to go withthis OS?


The OS itself does not contain wifi. Wifi is hardware that is installed in the device. AS far as the OS is concerned, yes the OS does support the wifi networking protocols. You MAY have to load the wifi adapter driver(s) for you device if Windows does not have a native one that is compatible, however. You can determine whether or not the driver is installed by going to the DEVICE MANAGER and looking at NETWORK ADAPTERS. If there is no wireless adapter present or there is an exclamation mark alongside the adapter, then you need to load the driver to get wifi functionality within the OS.

I formatted my pc purposely to install windows 7.after this,windows fail to install so i re-install windows xp.after this my wireless fail to work.when i tried it says'no supported wireless adapters...


If your computer originally was shipped with Windows XP pre-installed, and you used the "System Restore" CD/DVD disks that were shipped with the computer to reload Windows XP, the correct device-driver for the wireless-adapter should have been automatically installed.

If you used a different disk to reinstall Windows XP, then you can try two things:

1. Access ACER's web-site, do a search for your model, and see if the web-site offers the device-drivers for Windows XP for your model, or,

2. use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the Internet, and access: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com and do a "Custom" scan. When the scan completes, click the "Optional Hardware Updates" section, to see if Windows Update is offering a device-driver for your wireless adapter. If so, select and install that adapter.

Reloaded OS (Vista) and not can't connect to my functioning Wireless Router. Device Manager does not show a Wireless NIC.


If you don't even have the wireless driver installed that would be why you can't see the wireless network/router. If you give me the model of the computer/laptop or motherboard. I would be happy to get you the correct drivers. If this is a 3rd party wireless nic that wasn't installed by the manufacturer then I would need the model number of the specific NIC. Once I have that information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

I have a Lynksys wrt54g router. I had to reload my operation system completely due to a software issue. I can't get onto the internet system without being plugged into the router. I had wireless access...


Check in device manager to see if you have the drivers installed for your network adapter (look for yellow exclamation marks).
If they are all ok, have you put your password in for your wifi security

Hi there... Iogear Bluetooth micro adapter 2.1 for USB port, software installed... After inserting the adapter, laptop freezes.


What is the operating system of your computer? Can you tell me the exact model number of your Bluetooth Adapter (it usually starts with GBU)?

Check the link below, and see the system requirements:

http://www.iogear.com/product/GBU421/

You need to check also the system type of your computer (32 or 64-bit OS). Some IOGEAR devices could only support 32-bit OS. If you are running 64-bit OS, that could cause the problem.

Try to uninstall the Bluetooth driver. Reboot the computer, then reload the installation disk that came with it. Once the hardware wizard ask you to plug the device it, just continue the installation, BUT DO NOT plug the device.

After the installation is done, reboot the computer again, the PLUG the device in WHILE the computer is shutting down. Once the computer comes back up, then it should install the other necessary driver. And that should work.

Good luck!
