I have been trying to install a wireless router on my Acer Aspire L320 and have been told by Talk Talk that there is a problem with my Network card. The pc is one year old on vista. I can get limited connectivity through a plug in wireless adaptor (no browser) 192.168.1.1 does not work.
Ihave looked in the device manager and there is an exclamation mark beside the adaptor.

If you have a USB wireless adapter or anything other than the default wireless card that is installed in the lap top you are going to need to install the software for the device for it to work.
First make sure the wireless card driver in the computer is installed and the wireless is enabled and working. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.
Go to the Device Manager and check Wireless Network Adapter properties. Is the Wireless adapter installed, working properly and enabled? If not then reinstall the wireless LAN driver.
If it is OK then go to the Control Panel and click on Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection anf then click on Repair. This will make the wireless router issue a new IP address to the wireless LAN card and you whould now get access to the Internet & your network.
If this doesn't work power down your wireless router wait 1/2 minute, power up and boot up your laptop after all the normal LEDs on the wireless are on.
