Why don't i have a wireless network adapter showing in my device manager?


Hi, Try reseating the wireless card then restart the computer. If that doesnt work manually reinstall the driver, you should be able to find the drivers on the acer site.
It could be the card itself may need to be replaced. If you know someone with a usb wireless adapter borrow it, install and see what happens.
Since it's not showing in the device manager but shows it is disabled makes me think it's a driver/hardware issue.

Broadcom Base Code PXE-2.1 v1.1.0 is showing uP on my computer and i dont know how to reset the hardrive. Help!


Broadcom is for networking, WIFI, etc. Has nothing to do with hard drive. Most likely you are using multiple network adapters and could have created a conflict. If on WIFI, try disabling the 10/100 broadcom network adapter. If it's not hurting anything, don't do anything...be happy it works.

The computer is not recognizing the Linksys wireless card. When the card gets plugged in, it lights up like usual, but now the computer is not recognizing it at all. It used to appear in the bottom right...


look out for the driver of the wireless card. check the system configuration were you have all installed hardwares and see if you can find thr card there. if it is not there, then you may have to get the driver cd and re install it. other wise uninstall the driver and re install it again. but first, go to network connections and see if it is there or if it has been disabled. if it is disabled, enable it and you will be fine

Ibm thinkpad t42 switch for wireless network


The T42 has a bulit-in wireless network adapter and a LAN network card. T42s most likely have an Intel wireless card or less likely a Cisco wireless card.
Your wireless network adapter may have been disabled in the BIOS
and/or
The drivers for the wireless network controller has not been installed.

To check the network adapter go to the Control Panel, Click on System, click on Hardware Tab then Device Manager. Then scroll down and click on Network adapters. If you don't see your network controller or you see a yellow ? against Other devices for the Network controller. Then either it has been disabled and/or the driver was not installed.

To get the driver for the network controller you need to dowload it from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site their support/download page from a computer that has Internet access. Make sure you select your laptop model and the driver for your Windows version.
Install the driver and you then need to configure the wireless adapter to suit your wireless router settings before you can access the Internet.

My broadcom 802.11g network adapter disables every time I try to connect it to my linksys wireless router.


Check the various wireless access points near you, if any of them are broadcasting on the same channel as your wireless router, then change it to a channel that is unused.
Also check the signal strength of your wireless router, if it is less than say 60% move your laptop or your wireless router away from walls (especially concrete walls and metal/foil walls) and locate it higher to improve radio reception.
