The “Network adapters “is located in the”Device Manager” menu. If you clicked on” Device Manager” and nothing happens lets try to get to it another way. Go to “My Computer” which is usually located in the “Start” button, (lower left corner of desktop) and RIGHT click on “My Computer”. Another smaller window should open. Select “Properties” and another window will open. Select the “Hardware” tab at top select the “Device Manager” button.

If you have any other questions please contact me.

My laptop drops the internet then in a moment it comes back then repeats over and over


Several computer models include two specific hardware components that enable the device to connect to the Internet: an Ethernet adapter card and a wireless adapter card.

These cards are also called network adapters, or network cards.
If your computer suffers from an intermittent Internet connection, and your Internet service provider (ISP) doesn't detect any issues on their end, you can update the software for the network adapters to resolve the intermittent connection.

If updating the adapters doesn't resolve the problem, reset the transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP) and Winsock to restore the connection.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel."
Type "manager" into the search bar.
Click "Device Manager."

Expand "Network Adapters."
You should have one wired adapter and one wireless adapter, if the computer has wireless support.

Double-click each adapter.
Write down the name of the adapter, as well as the manufacturer's name.

Go to the computer or network adapter manufacturer's website if you installed the adapter to the computer yourself.
If the adapter came with the computer, go to the computer manufacturer's site instead.

Select the "Support," "Download" or "Drivers" page.
Look up your computer or adapter model.

Select your operating system.
Click the "Network," "LAN" or "Internet" category.

Download the latest adapters for your network devices.
Click "Save" or "Save As" and save the files to your desktop.

Return to Device Manager. Right-click the first device. Click "Update Driver Software."
Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software."

Follow the remaining on-screen directions to reinstall the device driver.
Repeat the process for the other network device.

Restart the computer after reinstalling the drivers to repair the intermittent Internet issue.

Reset IP

Log in to Windows as an administrator.
Hold down the Ctrl, Shift and Esc keys to open Windows Task Manager.

Click "File." Click "New Task." Type "cmd" and press Enter to open Command Prompt.

Type "netsh int IP reset c:\resetlog.txt" into the Command Prompt.
Press Enter to rewrite the TCP/IP registry keys.

Enter "netsh winsock reset" into the command-line prompt.
Press Enter to reset the Winsock catalog and resolve the intermittent Internet problem.

No Internet


Hi,

You may try checking the network driver of your computer.

1. click start --- right click "My computer / Computer".

2. click Manager then look for device manager.

3. under device manager on the left column. Look for your network adapter if it has a yellow question mark or a red x mark.

Red X - disabled.(right click then select enable)
yellow mark - driver is not installed/corrutped (you need to install the driver online or from the cd that came with the computer)

4. Restart

Now, if the issue still the same. Try a different computer and check if you can connect to the internet. If the issue still the same. Call you Internet service provider to check on the connection.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Can't gain access to internet on Dell D600 used laptop


Let’s check the network controller on your laptop. . Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to “Network adapters”. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.

If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc…

If you have any other questions please contact me.

No connection to the network


The first thing I'd do is go to the control panel, then select the device manager option. In there, you should see an option for the network adapters - if you open it up, the network adapters on the computer will be listed. If there's a conflict that is preventing the device from running properly, you should see an exclamation point against it.

Another possibility is that the wireless network adapter may just be turned off. In the control panel, go to Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing center. (This applies to Vista; if you are using an earlier OS, it may be different.) From there, click Manage network connections, and you should see a network adapter icon - you can click Enable to turn the device on if it is currently disabled.
