Hi suze26,

Yes, your laptop came with 10/100 ethernet card and 802.11g wireless. You can try to un-install this device temporally to see if the conflict clears. If not you may need to go to your manufacturer for updated drivers. Try this: click Start>control panel>system, click on hardware tab choose device manager, look for network adapters click to see the adapters installed on your computer, choose the the 802.11g and un-install. Reboot, windows will detect new hardware and reinstall the network adapter, check to see if conflict has cleared. I hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.com

Added 2nd hard drive network adapter stopped working


is the network adapter onboard or an add-on card. if it's an add-on you may have accidently unplugged either the card or the cord when installing. if it's onboard you should go to device manager and see what IRQ's the hard drives and the network adapter are using, they may be conflicting, if that's the case just change one of them to something different.

Wont hook to the enternet


The Ethernet adapter may be conflicting or competing with the wireless adapter for the Internet connection. Try turning off the wireless adapter. You can either disable it in device manager, or some HP laptops have a button next to the screen that will turn it off. If you don't get an Internet connection, restart the laptop and try again.

If that doesn't help, I would suspect the Ethernet adapter driver is faulty. Check it under device manager. If it has a yellow exclamation point, question mark, or is not listed, the driver needs to be installed or reinstalled. If it simply has a red X on it, enable the adapter.

If the Ethernet adapter is fine, try a different Ethernet cable. If THAT doesn't help, it's probably software related.

A firewall may be keeping you from browsing. Some firewalls may see the Ethernet connection as an entirely different connection than the wireless one. Try disabling all firewalls.

Thanks

Belkin wireless adapter


Sometimes wireless phones will interfere with the signals. If the router or PC is anywhere near a phone, it might have a problem. I have one wireless network card that gives me fits like that. I have yet to get a PC working with it. I have other wireless cards that work fine. I also switched to 5GHz phones, which helped my old laptop. Check to make sure there's not a conflict with the encryption used by either the dell or the router.

Hi Brucemph,

I just physically fixed a dell with the same problem. Dell installs a wireless configuration software that will auto configure the wireless adapter in the event there is a "Conflict". It basically disables the default card. Look at the programs you have installed and find the Dell Wireless program. Open it and select the default wireless card that is installed on the laptop. Once that is selected, go to your network connection, right click on the network adapter choose properties, select internet protocol, right mouse click, properties and make sure the box is checked that say's obtain ip address automatically.

Let me know how you do.

My acer aspire 5535 the screen keeps going blank


I had the same problem, going to a blank screen within minutes of booting up. I noticed that this coincided with the wireless light flashing which would indicate some sort of conflict between the wireless driver and the display driver possibly. I had to reboot into safe mode with networking to keep it connected. I then updated the wireless driver and rebooted into normal mode. Hey presto! It works and has now been running for several days without any black screens. I did not have to touch the BIOS at all. Mine is currently 1.03. Hope this helps some of you. P>S> Got mine from Dixons as a reconditioned unit at 3/4 the normal price , cost me £329. Not bad when they are still selling at Comet for £449.

You might want to disable the WiFi that is built into your laptop before installing that device. It is very possible that the built in WiFi is conflicting with that Wireless Broadband Device.

Geforce mx400 not recognised by micron clientpro board


The beeps are error codes telling you there is an irq interupt conflict with your video card. Does your computer have an onboard video controler also? If this is the case you will have to hook up your monter to that and remove your geforce video card for now. Fire up the computer and then disable the onboard video controller using the device manager by selecting the onboard video card from the list right click on it and click disable device. This will allow you to plug in the geforce and not Have a IRQ conflict. The geforce will now be recognised as the computers only video device and there will be no more conflict or error beeps. The geforce will be recognized as a standard vga adapter until you install the software and drivers for it to gain full use of all its features. If you need more help send me an Email to geokohler@gmail with your phone number and I will call you for free to help you out

I have a toshiba Equium L300 & it cannot connect to a wireless router. I have been advised that it is missing a ethernet/wireless driver. Please advise


From what I see about the Equium, the name Equium is in use in UK only. In other European & countries USA the name is Satellite. From the specs of the model you mentioned you DO have a onboard NIC. You might have to uninstall the driver that you have due to corruption and the operating system will install a generic driver for you to use. Or you can go to Toshiba if you’re in Europe
http://www.toshiba-europe.com locate support and you can download the driver there.

If you have a driver your probably not setting (configuring the router and your computer) the network up properly.

Networking Networking: Network adapter
Wireless LAN Supported: Yes
Wireless NIC: Realtek RTL8187B
Data Link Protocol: Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g
Compliant Standards: IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED

How can I connect a wireless adapter to my toshiba portege 660 cdt as there is not a port on it for the usb to fit in to


Hi,

I am assuming that your wireless adapter is USB and that your Toshiba Portege 660 CDT has a PCMCIA slot. If yes then you would need something like a PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card adapter as shown here. The added advantage is that you would have an extra USB port. Just pls make sure that the PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card adapter you will purchase is compatible with your laptop and has drivers appropriate for your Operating System.

Alternately, you can try swapping your USB WiFi for a PCMCIA version similar to this. Again, pls make sure that the PCMCIA Wireless network card you will purchase is compatible with your laptop and has drivers appropriate for your Operating System.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
