You need to install the wireless drivers of your computer card to get the card working.
You will find the drivers at your computer manufacturer website /support

If you already did it, check your wireless router settings and be sure that you have a wireless network availaible to connect.

Are you telling us that you are using a Bluetooth adapter to try to connect your ASUS N50Vn laptop.to a wireless network??? For that you need a (wireless) network adapter (it plugs into an available USB port on your laptop. like the BT adapter), not a Bluetooth adapter.

I want to use it on my asus tablet witch has 2-USB ports


You cannot use it for your ASUS tablet, but you do not need to because your tablet has WiFi capability built in. Probably you can use that adapter only with a regular computer (where you have a CD), most likely a desktop, because all laptops have WiFi capability built in.

Hope this helps.

My asus was died. the indicator didnt show the signal, how i repair that?


Hi

Almost always the problem is the USB port that you use for this device. Even careful use means pressure is put on on USB dongles, adapters and flash drives, either bending the deivice and affecting the contact of the compnernts inside and/or the same for the components and elements inside the USB port on the computer itself.

Gravity, accidental knocks and the unwitting placement of objects ontop of the USB device can bend the devive and the port, causing damage.

The best ans safest way to use USB devices, is with a short USB Male to Female extension cable. Connect the cable to the computer and alwaysv attach the USB device to the female end of the cable instead of directly to the computer and place the USB device flat on the desk or table. This means there is no downward pressure on the device or the USB port.

Hold the device up to your eyes to see if it is bent. Shake it to hear if there are any loose connections. If so, you can open it and if you have a soldering iron and some solder and some superglue, you can try to fix the damaged connection and then glue the device bacl together carefully.

If the USB port on the computer is damaged, try a different USB port.

If no solution arises from the above, buy another wireless adaptor and a USB extension cable. Both of them will only cost a few dollars.

Hope this helps.

My Asus M50Vm notebook is no longer recognizing my wireless network. I have gone to the website and updated my drivers, but I still cannot connect wirelessly. I also checked to make sure the wireless...


I'm assuming by 'no longer recognizing my wireless network' that at one point in time your notebook was connecting without problem, but now for whatever reason it's not connecting because your Wireless Network (SSID) is not showing up when your notebook scans for networks.

If you remember what your Network's SSID is called, I would try setting your wifi card to connect to it manually vs connecting to 'any' SSID in the area. Wifi networks won't show up when you scan for them if they're set to not broadcast their SSID's.

That is the most mundane assumption I can make as to what's wrong. There are a bunch of other problems that could cause this, but I'd try this solution first.

Will a wireless ethernet adapter (USB WIRELESS 54 G NETWORK ETHERNET ADAPTER 54G G WiFi) work with my wireless Linksys 2.4 Ghz router? And also it will be connected to an old Gateway 700mhz Windows 98se...


The OS would be the only problem. You would have to make sure the computer had USB 2.0 ports and that the OEM of the network adapter has a driver for Windows 98.

Without the driver it won't work at all, without the USB 2.0 ports it might work but it won't perform nearly as well as it could.

Wireless adapter has suddenly stopped working.


First unplug your adapter and boot your computer. It wouldn;t hurt to reboot it once as well. This should clear out any settings. When it has fully booted up only then insert the adapter into a different usb port. If it recognizes it and works it can indicate a usb problem.

If it finds it but doesn't connect a adapter problem. You can uninstall it and reinstall the drivers and it might work. If not replace. If it does nothing then its died on you and your adapter needs to be replaced.

Most adapters and home network units (wifi routers etc) only last for 1-2 years before they act up or die on you. Very annoying and can be expensive. I have a stack of wifi routers where the wifi isn;t reliable but the rest works. And a drawer full of various wifi adapter that are detected but not connected and a few just plain dead ones. All of them seem to fail at about the same time after purchase.

Can I use a wireless router with motorola phone tools. What I want to do is to connect phone tools on a desktop and then add a wireless router (USB) so I can get wireless internet on my laptop.


Your question is somewhat confusing.

For clarification, there are two questions that you could be asking.

The first question would be: Can your phone be 'Tethered' to your laptop with either a Data Cable or Bluetooth to have internet on your laptop by using your phone as a modem? (No wireless router is needed to do this.)

The second question would be, that you have an internet connection on your desktop computer and want to use a wireless router to have internet on your laptop via WiFi. (In this case, your cell phone would not be needed.)

If the first question is what you are asking, to use your cell phone as a modem to provide internet access to your laptop - then the answer is, Yes. This is what you will need:

1) You'll need a Data Plan added to your regular cell phone service account.

2) To tether your laptop to your phone, your laptop will need to have either Bluetooth installed or you will need a USB Data cable.

Tip: If your laptop does not have Bluetooth installed, you can purchase any USB Bluetooth Doggle (on eBay for a couple of dollars) and plug it into one of the USB ports on your computer. Once plugged in, the doggle will automatically download the Bluetooth drivers to your laptop. Otherwise, you can use a USB Data cable to tether your phone to your laptop.

Note: Depending on the model number of your Motorola phone you may have to download the Data Cable Drivers onto your laptop.

If your phone is not one of the following phones then you can use Motorola Phone Tools. (Motorola OS, Motorola Linux OS, Motorola iDEN, Motorola Symbian/UIQ, Motorola Windows Mobile and Motorola i-mode Handsets. )

If you need the Motorola Phone tools (if your Motorola Phone Model was NOT one of the models I listed above)
Just click here::
http://bit.ly/1TN7A6

If your phone model is a (Motorola OS, Motorola Linux OS, Motorola iDEN, Motorola Symbian/UIQ, Motorola Windows Mobile or Motorola i-mode Handsets), you'll need to download the drivers for the Data Cable and install them on your laptop.
Click here:
Since you did not include which cellular provider you use, I cannot provide you with the information to manually set up your cellular internet connection.

Now, if the second question is the one you are asking, that you have internet on your desktop and want to use a wireless router to get internet on your laptop, here's what you'll need:

1) Connect a wireless router to your desktop.
2) Your laptop should have a small WiFi switch or button on the front or side of your laptop. This will need to be turned 'ON". (See your owners manual for your laptop to do this.)

If your laptop has WiFi installed, on your laptop go to START > (Look on the right side of the menu box and click on: 'Connect to' -- If you don't see, 'Connect to' in the menu you'll have to purchase a USB WiFi adapter. A good one is a D-Link DWL-G132 and can be purchased on eBay for about $10. Install the drivers for it first before plugging it in to your computer.
Click here to download the DWL-G132 drivers:
ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dwlg132/Driver/dwlG132_drivers_130.zip

Once you download the drivers and plug in the DWL-G132 into one of your laptop's USB ports then click, START > Connect to > and select your wireless router.
