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.

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.
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
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:
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.
works on Vista or not? If it does up grade the other PC to Vista as well .....ME is outdated and soon if not already updates will no longer be provided by microsoft. Most likely ME does not support that NIC.
