Since this is an external wireless card, you should install the driver software that came with the wireless card or download the appropriate driver from the vendor's website BEFORE you install the wireless card, be it USB or PCMCIA. In most cases, at some point the installation will request you connect the wireless card.

FYI. When you don't see a device in Device Manager, it is typically a hardware issue or the OS perhaps is corrupted and may require a OS repair or reinstallation.

Not sure I understand you what you mean. Let me recap:
1) Your LAN adaptor was working before you reloaded Windows XP Pro.
2) Now it’s not showing up in “Device Manager”.
If this is the case, there must be some software driver missing. Make sure there are no other devices that have an error. Double check Dell’s website at www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

Toshiba Portege 7200 i try to fomat it it does no format why


Windows won't as a rule allow format of an older system onto a newer system, it goes into protect mode.
If you are trying to format the laptop with say XP and you have XP with SP3 installed, because SP3 is newer than XP it will try to stop you from destroying the newer system. Matbe you are running out of space?

After PC format, you now need to put all the required pc drivers like modem driver, sound driver, LAN driver, WAN Driver, Camera Driver and other driver software. Maybe you miss this software. Check your device manager if you pc is not reading the sound card hardware because you have not install the sound card driver to activate the sound card.

search the internet for DriverPak solutions v14 iso. this is an all in one driver disk that has literally thousands of drivers for just about all hardware. its a free dvd iso so if you find it online and they want to charge you just look someplace else. there is a v15 and i just noticed there is a 17 out. but 14 was the last version that had no advertising or pop-ups. and since youre using Windows XP you should be fine. also be sure to make a recovery point before updating your system.

good luck

You need to find the manufacturer / model numbers of the devices that are not working correctly. Actually, the LAN adapter is critical. Once you get it working, then you can get the rest of the drivers from manufacturer websites.

Go to the Internet site for that adapter's manufacturer, and locate the drivers for that exact driver. Then download it and install it, and it should work fine.

I just purchased a m series laptop. It has a wireless network integrated 802.11 b/g/n wirless LAN. I can not connect to the internet wireless. Is there any thing else that I need?


have you formatted your laptop to be included in your wireless network? If not, then you will never be able to connect to the internet. Also, if you are missing the correct drivers, there could be some effect on your wireless card.
