Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop. Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot. Observations: ; All drivers and devices are functional with no errors or conflicts. ; Wireless adapter has power and is not in Airplane mode. ; No wireless networks are visible even though there are normally as many as 12 networks available within the area. ; Wired Ethernet adapter works without issues. Solution: Turns out the BIOS was v2.05. After updating the BIOS to v2.13, wireless connectivity is functional. All locally available wireless networks (SSIDs) are visible.
Notes of caution: ; A failed BIOS update will invalidate your warranty per Gateway chat support rep. ; Ensure you have a fully charged battery before updating the BIOS. ; Ensure your AC adapter is plugged in and functional prior to starting the BIOS updater.
Fot that first you need wi fi router with intenret connection .
Then check in your laptop that your wi fi network adapter driver are installed.
Also check its wi fi switch is turn on it is on laptop.
Check your wireless in router is enabled.
also check your wi fi network adapter is enabled in your LAPTOP.
Let me know if you want to configure your router and if you need more assistanse .
Well you have formatted the system, so you need to install the Wi-Fi driver in order to access the Wi-Fi.
ou must be having the driver CD, If you dot have just download the wi-fi driver from internet and install it on your Laptop and re-start the laptop and you will be able to access the Wi-Fi again.
it really depends on what wi-fi card you have, the best way to check is to go to control panel, system, device manager, check for the yellow question mark by wireless cards, then it should tell you what wireless card is in there so you can obtain drivers. Or check your laptop manufactures website, drivers are 90% of the time available on their, have you also checkd that your router is wireless enabled and that the secuirty keys and wireless settings match up?#
if i was you i would load up a version of win xp on another hard drive inserted into your laptop, load the drivers for the laptop including wi fi drivers then see if ok. if not you can be sure its a faulty wi fi card in your laptop,you need to disable internal wi fi card remove,replace it.but first try borrow a pcmcia wi fi card just to check if everythings ok
Not much offered at Compaq's driver site for XP. For the modem driver, try the link below, it says it's for Vista, but it should work. If it doesn't then you will need the make and model of the modem, then go to the manufacturer's site or driverguide.com for the drivers, and the same for the wireless, make and model, manufacturer's site or driver guide. To be honest with you, modems are just about obsolete, unless you have dial up at home, you'll probably never use it.
Here is likely what happened.. Your original Hard drive Probably had the Operating System and System Drivers/Software Embedded onto it from the manufacturer.....which uses a Restore CD set
You added a New Drive.. which comes Blank, Then loaded XP.. Now you still need your System Drivers... this will have the drivers for your Wireless and sound and the right display driver etc... You should go to the Manufacturers website of your Laptop and Download the default drivers from their website
