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.

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

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!

It was reinstalling os on my friends machine and


possibly the updates installed may have something to do with the problem. how about doing system restore prior those last updates you installed, see if you can get it back to when the wireless nic was working.

something else you may want to try is to uninstall the driver for the device and reinstall fresh. I strongly suggest that you use the driver that you may find in the website instead of the one that came with the device.

good luck to ya!

New os installed..


Erm, install adapter? I mean, seriously, go the website of the manufacturers that made your bluetooth adapter and search for vista compatible drivers for your blutooth adapter. Once you get a hold of it. install it. It shouldn;t be an issue once you have the proper driver. however, please do revert back to me if you face difficulties. Thank you.

Targus Adapter is Freezing my computer!


This adapter is obviously not compatable with Vista as it was originally used in Win98, Win2000 and XP and there are no drivers on this site for Vista. http://www.targus.com/us/drivers_manuals.asp?SKU=ACB10US For the price of a new Vista compatible Bluetooth adapter it's not worth re installing another operating system as all adapters should have all the same uses as each other.
