Question about Computers & Internet
I have Acer Aspire 3004LC series Laptop. In my system CD, I found the driver for wireless LAN. The instructions in the CD directs me to go to Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Driver->Other Devices->Right click and install the driver and then install the application. But I can't find "Other Devices" in the device manager. Please help me out to get Wifi Connectivty.
Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!
It's possible that the driver for your wireless adapter is already installed. Check under Device Manager > Network Adapters if there is anything pertaining to your wireless adapter. Make sure that your wireless adapter (under Device manager > Network adapters) does not have any red X or yellow question mark.
Red X indicated that it's disabled , while yellow question mark will suggest that you need to update the driver. If your wireless adapter is working properly under Device Manager > Network adapters then you will need to configure it's utility for wireless connection.
If you are running windows XP, look for the wireless icon in the lower right side of your task bar and use it to connect to your preferred network.
Good luck and have a nice day!
