Wi Fi driver downloading

Hi Dear,

One more question please regarding the yellow exclamation mark in device manager. I had that yellow mark on wireless connection. I got the right driver from the manufacturers site. Because the affected computer does not connect to the internet (both wireless and ethernet failed) I downloaded the driver to another computer and copied it to the affected one using flash drive. However, when I try to open the file on the affected coputer, it gives me a message that shows "the file already exists" and asks me if I want to overwrite it" So I could not install it.

wifi
Most new laptops are equipped with all the components necessary to go online wirelessly to account for the increasing popularity of Wi-Fi Internet.

If you find that you are not able to connect to any wireless networks on a laptop, take a few basic troubleshooting steps on your own before having the laptop serviced.

In all likelihood, you will be able to restore your laptop's wireless functionality and be browsing Wi-Fi Internet in no time.

Enable the wireless card by pressing the radio button, typically located near the top of the keyboard.

Press the radio button until a light illuminates indicating that your wireless card has been enabled and is ready to go online wirelessly.

Test your connectivity once again; if there is still no wireless access, it is time to check for a possible issue with your wireless card.


Navigate to the computer's device manager by opening the "Start" menu and either clicking "Device Manager" from the "Control Panel" window or right-clicking "My Computer," clicking "Properties," and choosing "Device Manager" from the "Hardware" tab, depending on what version of operating system you use.


Look for the wireless card in the Device Manager by clicking the "+" next to "Network Adapters." If you see any item labeled "Wireless Card" or "Wireless Controller," check to see if it has a "?," "X," "!" placed over the name; if it does, you will need to update the software drivers for the wireless card. Contact the manufacturer of the computer for assistance.

Attempt to connect a wireless network other than your home network. Make sure you connect to a wireless network that you are legally allowed to use, such as a free public Wi-Fi hotspot, and that you are not illegally connecting to someone else's wireless network.

If you can connect to other Wi-Fi networks, the problem is likely isolated to your home network and you will need to troubleshoot that.

If you are still can't connect to any Wi-Fi networks after following the steps above, you may need to have the laptop serviced or have its wireless card replaced.

Bluetooth peripheral device driver


Sai Ch Krishna,

Depending on the system. The bluetooth would have to have been purchased at point of sale. The wireless and the bluetooth are turned on by a wireless switch on the side of the computer. If needed you can reinstall the drivers. Also, make sure bluetooth is turned on in the bios. Below is more information.
Wireless Switch

Wireless Technology The Latitude D630, D631, and D630c system ships with a wireless feature called the wireless switch. It is located on the left side of the system next to the IEEE 1394 connector. When used in combination with the Dell 38482; Quickset utilities, this switch enables or disables the wireless LAN, wireless WAN, and Bluetooth cards in the system or searches for all wireless networks in range.
To scan for a Wi-Fi wireless LAN, slide and hold the switch in the momentary position for a few seconds. The Wi-Fi Catcher network locator works whether the computer is turned on or off, in Hibernate mode, or in Standby mode, as long as the switch is configured through QuickSet or the BIOS to control Wi-Fi network connections.
Because the Wi-Fi Catcher network locator is disabled and not configured for use when the computer is shipped, it must be enabled and configured through the Dell QuickSet utilities to control Wi-Fi network connections.

Wireless Switch LED Settings
The LED on the wireless switch works even if the system is off. A user can activate the switch and have it scan for networks without going through a complete boot process. The switch can be set to detect for only certain wireless signals, such as WLAN only, WWAN only, Bluetooth only, or any combination of these. This is set in the BIOS under the Wireless section.
The LED indicates the presence of a network as follows:
  • Flashing green - The system is searching for a signal.
  • Green - The system has detected a wireless signal and has good strength.
  • Yellow - The system has detected a wireless signal, but it is moderate to weak in strength.
  • Red - The system failed to detect a wireless signal, or the wireless signal is extremely weak.
Thank You,

I cant enable my wi-fi in dell inspiron n5010 modell.do i need to install driver???????????/


Hi,
First of all you need to check if the driver is installed. To check, click on Start > right click My Computer, click Manage, on the left side click Device Manager > check the right pane, you will see all the devices installed on your machine on that pane. Check if your wireless device is installed properly. If it has no marks on it on the device manager, you might just need to enable the device itself. Most Dell computers uses Fn+F2 keys to activate the wireless. if it has a yellow mark, just install the driver and you're done.
Hope this works.. Regards...

Looking to connect to a Verizon hot spot with my 4300. Specs say it has wi fi but can't find it in the control panel


right click on "my computer" and click on "manage" after the console opens, click on "device manager" in the left column and after that on "network adapters" in the right one. If there is no wireless network adapter listed there, you don't have one or it's not properly installed (in that case, there is a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in it, open the pc and write down the type of wireless card, download the drivers from the manufacturers website and install them) or it's disabled (a red cross (xp) or a down arrow (vista, win7) is over it, enable it by right clicking on it and choosing "enable")

Wi-fi


Please make sure the drivers for your wireless network adapter is installed.
1) go to Device manager - rightl click on my computer and click on properties, select HARDWARE tab then click on Device manager
2) See if the wireless adapter is displayed under Network adapters. If there is an yellow exclamation mark on the Network adapter, it means the drivers for your adapter are not installed.
3) If you find the drivers ok, then make sure that the wireless radio button is turned on. Usually the wireless radio can enabled or disabled from a tray Icon on right side of the system. Most of the system also come with a on/off switch for the wireless radio which is basically on the front side of the laptop.

If the above does not help please revert with the model number of your system and I will try some other steps for you

Anybody there ? i m having problem in installing drivers after formatting the computer. I downloaded the drivers and installed but they are not working. please tell me exact name/location of drivesr....


What drivers arent working exactly? Each hardware component on your computer comes with its own drivers, one thing you might want to do is access your device manager [right click 'my computer' and click 'manage', then click 'device manager' in the console tree]. expand each the devices that either have a yellow exclamation or question mark next to them. The yellow exclamation mark implies a conflict while the yellow question mark implies that the drivers are missing, you could right click the device and click on 'properties' then click 'update drivers' and the OS will do the update for you automatically, or you'll have to manually download them from the manufacturers websites. In this case you'll need to know the Model number of your computer, the kind pf processor and chipset you have and the name of the Operating System. Good luck

Wireless no longer works


1st Solution:
Check if the wi-fi card is properly installed under Device Manager. Go to Start then look for Control Panel on the right pane. Under Control Panel look for System and Maintenance and then click on Device Manager. Now under Device Manager look for Network Adapters and collapse or click the arrow next to it. Check if your wi-fi adapter is installed(10/100 or 10/1000 is your LAN adapter, wi-fi adapters usually indicates something like 802.11x(could be agn or g or b) or the word "wireless". If you don't see anything I mentioned above that means your computer is unable to detect any wi-fi adapters installed. Know if you found a wi-fi adapter but there is a yellow exclamation or question mark, all you have to do is re-install the drivers for your wi-fi adapter(you can download the drivers on the Compaq website for free.)

2nd Solution:
Check if the wi-fi is disabled or stopped, if you have a bulit in wi-fi adapter on your laptop they have a wi-fi switch on the side or near the function keys(F1, F2, F3 up to F12). Wi-fi button/switch will have a logo or marking of an antenna that has waves coming out of it and there is a LED light that will indicate if its on or off(for Comapaq laptops it's either a blue button at the front, near the function keys or at the front panel on the buttom edge.

If both fails then you may need to contact Compaq for further assistance.

Hope this will help you fixin the wi-fi problems on your laptop.
