How do i reset it my wireless adapter


If I were you, I'd first let Windows Manage Wireless Network Connections:
  1. Click Start If you're using XP, click Start then open the Control Panel. Find the Switch to Classic View button in the Control Panel and click it.
  2. Open Network Connections Open Network Connections then double-click the Wireless Network Connection icon.
  3. Click the Properties Click the Properties button. Look for the boxes at the bottom of the Properties window that read "Show icon in notification area when connected" and "Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity" and make sure they are both checked.
  4. You could also right click on the Wireless Network Connection icon and click Properties from there.
  5. Open Wireless Networks tab Open the Wireless Networks tab and make sure the box labeled "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" is checked. Then click OK.
  6. under Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center you could find "manage wireless connection" there you could assign/delete wireless connection.

Acer ax5810 wireless problems


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen. The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in from left to right. Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network." You will see a list of available wireless networks. Wireless Acer laptop can be a massive boon to your productivity when it is working properly and a massive headache when it is not. When your laptop card begins to exhibit undesirable symptoms, such as signal dropping, you can avoid a hefty repair bill by performing at-home troubleshooting. The best solution is to merely reinstall the software driver, which refers to the program that the operating system uses to speak the wireless card's language.

Open your operating manual and look up the model name and number for your laptop. Navigate to the Acer Support web page (see Below) and click on the "Downloads" link. http://support.acer.com/ Input the model number of your laptop, click on the "Search" button, download the wireless driver file for your laptop model and save the file to your desktop. Open the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel" and open "Device Manager." Open the "Network Adapters" menu, double-click on your wireless card, select the "Drivers" tab, click on the "Update Drivers" button and choose the desktop as the location to search for new drivers. Click "Next" to reinstall the driver, fixing your wireless woes.

My compaq d530 cmt....i cannot get on the internet and cant find the right driver for and dont know which driver to install......help


You didn't state what Operating System you're using. I'm going to assume WinXP Home.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=316722&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=316720&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1098#11395

Go down to the heading Driver-Network.

Now Minimize the window. (At the top right of the screen. Starting from left to right; Minimize window icon, Maximize window icon, Close window icon. {Red square, white X)

On your desktop screen right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.

Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

When Device Manager fully loads, left-click on the + sign next to Network adapters.

Now match up the name of the device, with the correct network driver file listed in the HP Support link.

Is it a Broadcom device listed?
Is it the newer version? Broadcom NeXtreme? (Doubt it)

If it isn't Broadcom NetXtreme the two first files listed do not apply.

Go on down. Is it an Intel device?
Just indicates Intel in the name of the device?
Intel Gigabit Network Connection Drivers for Microsoft Windows XP.

Or does it have Intel PRO/1000 in the name of the device?
Intel PRO/1000 GT Drivers for all operating systems.

Not Intel?
Just lists as a Broadcom device?

Skip the next 6 files.
They deal with wireless networking, and Bluetooth.

You want - Broadcom Driver for Windows XP

After you left-click directly on the file name you want, it takes you to another page.
Go to the right of the heading - File name: and sp26992.exe (31MB), and left-click on Download.

A small window comes up.
Opening sp26992.exe
Left-click on - Save File

In the next window that comes up write down what is in the heading.
In the heading tells you where the file will download to.
It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads in the heading.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.
My Documents: Left-click on Start, then My Documents.
Downloads: Left-click on Start, then My Documents, then double-click on Downloads.

When you see the file Double-click on it.
Follow the Installation Wizard instructions.
(Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish. Windows will put the file in the proper place)

Now restart your computer.

Hello! I very much doubt that Memory will cause the problem you have. Are you using a secure network? if so you may have to pair it again with the p.c. try this! hover over the internet icon on the taskbar (2 computor monitors) it should show wireless networks available, if not right click on it then click set up network or search for available networks, if this fails uninstall the wireless router in the device manager and reload after re booting.
Hope this helps!

I have a new laptop which has built in wireless but I cant get it to connect to my house internet. I entered a wrong passcode and now cannot work out how to reset it so i can start again


Vista or XP? XP is the easiest. Click on the Wireless icon in the lower right. click on advance settings>wireless networks and remove all the preferred networks or just the one you wanted to sign in to in that box. VIOLA! start again.
VISTA a little harder. right click on the wireless icon. click networks and settings. in the left side bar click manage networks. Find your network device and right click properties. Security tab to change the password settings.

Have you verified the wireless card that is in the machine? (Are you certain there is one there?) Even if there is one inside it, the PC may not see it. Go to device manager (My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button). Then look through the list to find "Network adapters", click the "+" to the left, and it will display a list of adapters present in the machine. Make sure there are no yellow caution symbols or other error icons in any area.

Then, if you can see a wireless card listed, right-click to view the properties. Please post back with the results, and the exact info regarding your PC and the wireless card if you need more help. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!
