Question about Dell Ethernet Card Network Adapter

1 Answer

Network adapter Hey. I'm not too computer savvy so I was hoping maybe someone can help here. I've been having a problem with my network adapter. I have wireless and just a couple days ago my internet stopped working. My computer still picks up the wireless signal but it doesn't recognize it as a network and won't allow me to connect. If there's anyone who knows what I can do that would be great.

    My computer is off-and-on able to pick up my wireless signal. When it fails, and I try to repair the connection, it is unable to complete the repair because it can't detect the network adapter. No network adapter shows up in my device manager. I had changed out some RAM the day before this started. Any chance these are connected, and if so, how do I fix it?

Hi There!

Hope you are doing well.

As is understand you can not connect to the internet. Here is what you can try. As i can see from what you have written. Your network adapter is fine.

1. I see you are using a wireless router.
If it is configured in DHCP mode ---> Then set your laptop or computer IP configuration in DHCP mode.
If it is configured in NAT Mode ---> Then give a static IP configuration to your computer. depending on your local range e.g IP:192.168.0.30 Subnet:255.255.255.0 Default gateway:192.168.0.1 and also set you Primary and secondary DNS settings.

You could try any of the above setting and after saving the new configuration restart the computer. and reboot(turn off the power supply and turn it back on after 30 sec) the wireless router also.

2. Try Changing your wireless router , install a new one and try your old configuration.

Regards,

Olafsson.

Adapter inactive


It is not the problem with the router. It is the problem with the wireless adapter on your computer. Open Network connections and look for Wireless network connection. If it is not there then open the Device Manager and look for Wireless network adapter under Network adapters. It seems that wireless adapter on your computer is not working or it is not detected by your computer. If you have external wireless adapter then unplug it and replug it.

I cnat see the wireless network vailable in my neiberhood but i see t in my other laptop..someone told me delete readycomm ...but how do i delete it and find it '???


Do both laptops have the same wireless adapter, e.g., both "Wireless B" or "Wireless G" or "Wireless N" ? Different adapters can see different networks.

Use "View Available Networks", and then click to "Change Order Of Preferred Networks".
Select a network that you've previously accessed, e.g., free WiFi at a motel, and "delete" it.

How do you connect WIndows Vista to Windows 7 through ADHOC?


Wireless Adapter is a device that will receive the wireless signals and will make your computer wireless adapter. without the wireless adapter you can not use the computer to connect to the wireless network. Now a days all the laptops and desktops are equipped with the built in wireless adapters.
First check whether you have a wireless adapter on your computer ?

WIN VISTA/ Windows 7
Click START ==> Control Panel ==> In the right hand side at the top you will see " Classic View "
Switch to classic view ==> you will see Device Manager ==> Under Network Adapters you will find your wireless adapter listed . Right clink on the wireless adapter ==> properties => Check whether it says the Device is working properly or not ? If it says working properly then that's great !

If you do not see wireless adapter in the Device manager , then either you do not have the adapter or the wireless adapter is not working .If you see "yellow exclamation mark" on the wireless adapter, that means the drivers are not installed for the adapter or not working. Reinstall the drivers.
Once your adapter is working properly , try to connect to the wireless network.

If you are installing the external wireless adapter to the computer and if you are using Windows 2000 or Windows 98 , ME, then you will have to connect to the wireless network using the utility of that adapter.
If you are using Win XP then you can use windows to connect to the wireless network or you can use other utility.
In case of Win VISTA, you will use windows to connect to the wireless network.

Netgear wireless adapter wg111t will not work work


It's impossible that the wireless router cannot detect your wireless adapter wg111t.

You try to test another one if still have a problem connecting with your wireless router.
If that router can see another wireless network available then maybe your Netgear wireless adapter have a problem incomplete installation or the wireless device is defective.
I have encounter like this before so maybe it's the same with.
Hope my tip will help you a lot.
Good luck!
Please rate me.

Hello, hope all is well i have just bought a new desktop computer with a DWA 520 wireless adapter... we have been struggling to get a decent signal from our wireless Dlink router. So much so we have...


try putting the wireless router closer to the computer but not right beside maybe theres interference with something, your built in wireless in the laptop is prob way stronger than the cards you got there are different ranges for different cards and if you get a low card it wont connect to high speeds or longer distances and make sure your connecting to your routers wireless and not someone elses wireless router, it sounds stupid but it happens ive did it before make sure the right drivers are on the computer for the card you installed hope one of those helps

My installation is stuck at 30%


  • Hey, Have to also make sure the wireless adapter is not plugged while installing (only when prompted to plug it in)
  • You can try downloading a NEW installer from the Linksys website. (maybe the cd is scratched?...) Here is a link to the Driver/installer, for your adapter. (This is a WindowsXP Driver)
  • Try installing the driver using that, and then plug in your wireless adapter when the setup program prompts for you to do so.
Report back if there are any more complications or issues that occur during the above process,

I'll be happy to assist you further.
I Hope This Helps.

I want to purchase crickets wireless broadband to use with my laptop and i need to route my home computer to use it also. i have a dell b 110 with intel pro 100 ve. what else do i need to purchase to use...


Any wireless router should do just fine. Make sure to purchase a Wireless G or N, should be clearly stated on the box before purchase. They run about $40 for a ok one. Very easy to configure to.

Good luck with everything and I hope I could be of some help.
