I just reformatted my Fujitsu Lifebook A6120 Notebook. I installed all drivers with no problem except for the wireless lan driver. When I install it, it says cannot find driver.


Hi

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about your computer and the history of its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

You also don't say what the actual reason is for you needing to install Drivers. Have you changed your Operating System? Did the computer's original Operating System start showing signs of corruption, leading you to try to fix it with Driver re-installation within the same Operating System? Or did the Computer's original Operating System fail, causing you to re-install the same Operating System as the only means of resolving the problem? These are pivotal issue.

The term "Wireless LAN Driver" is meaningless with a qualifying correlation to an Operating System.

Although drivers seem to mainly be about hardware, they are actually mainly about software. The Driver does not physically control the Laptop's Devices. The BIOS and the Operating System do that. What the Driver does is (just like a human interpreter for a guest who speaks a different language from his host), introduce the Device to the Operating System and help them to communicate with one another, with the Driver taking instructions from each and passing it back and forth between Operating System and Device.

So when one mentions Drivers, one must also mention the Operating System it will be talking to. In order for that to be possible, the 2 must share a common language. If they do not, then the role of 'interpreter' is impossible, because, then neither the Driver nor the Device will be able to understand what the Operating System is saying.

There is no such thing as a "Wireless LAN Driver". There are only XP Wireless LAN Drivers, Vista Wireless LAN Drivers, Windows 7 Wireless LAN Drivers, Mac OSX Tiger Wireless LAN Drivers, Mac OSX Leopard Wireless LAN Drivers, Mac OSX Lion Wireless LAN Drivers, Linux Red Hat Wireless LAN Drivers, Linux Ubuntu Wireless LAN Drivers, etc.

If you have not needed to install any other drivers, I would guess that you have Windows 7 installed on this computer, but unless you add a Comment/Clarification to this question specifying the details of the original Operating System and any subsequent Operating System Updates or Upgrades you have conducted. it is difficult to say.

This laptop came originally with Vista Home Premium 32 Bit or 64 Bit. The drivers (including the LAN and Wireless LAN Drivers - also sometimes referred to as WLAN, Wireless Network or 802.11 Drivers - needed to allow Internet access) for either of these Vista Operating Systems can be downloaded and installed from the Support & Downloads Page of Fujitsu's Official Website, here:


http://support.fujitsupc.com/CS/Portal/supportsearch.do


If you installed Windows XP or Windows 7 (32-Bit) on this computer, the Drivers are available from the same web page of the above Fujitsu Site.

If you only have only ever had Vista installed, all along, then:


Computer > System Properties > Device Manager


This will show you a list of all the installed Devices and if the icon for Wireless LAN or WLAN or 802.11, or indeed any other Driver is out of line, 'popped' out to the right with yellow exclamation or question marks against them, then download and install the affected Drivers using the website link included above, restart the computer and all should be well afterwards. When all the Devices in Device Manager are in nice, neat, straight line to the left of Device Manager, then all the drivers are likely to have been properly iinstalled and the Devices associated with them should function properly.

I hope this helps.

Afer i reformat my lenevo 3000 g430 i can't connect anymore to a wifi connection


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
Have you already installed the drivers for your computer? If not yet, it could be the reason why you are not able to use your wifi. Follow these steps so that you could know what to do next:
1)check the device manager in Windows: A)if you are using Windows 7 or Vista: -click on Start, then on the searchbox, kindly search for Device Manager and open it. You should have something like this: mondimondz_1.png
B)if you are using Windows XP: click on start>run>type devmgmt.msc and it will open the device manager Window.
2)If you will find a category that says Other Devices, kindly look for a item that says "Network Controller" if you find it, it means that the Wifi adapter on the comptuer is not yet installed. All you need to do is insert the drivers disc CD if one came with the computer when you bought it. If not, you could try connecting the laptop to the modem directly using a cable and download the driver from Lenovo's support website: www.support.lenovo.com

3)If you still cannot connect with a direct connection, the Ethernet adapter could have been not yet installed also. You could also check it on the Device Manager window and look for Ethernet Controller under Other Devices. or check the category Network Adapters and see if the Ethernet Adapter is installed.
4)if the drivers are already installed, you can try contacting your Internet Provider or call Lenovo's Technical Support Team.
hope this would be a big help!

Unable to activate wireless on my HP 4520S notebook. It is enabled in BIOS + via FN & Wireless key


Hi,
Go to device manager and check if the wireless lan driver is installed. If not, install the driver first and make sure you install the required software as well. (usually HP Wireless Assistant). You can download the drivers from here: www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.htm.
Choose your laptop model and operating system then download the necessary drivers needed for your lan to work.
Hope this helps.

Drivers for windows Vista are here: http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_4720.html
Under Drivers and Utilities, Select and download these drives;

While installing, please start with "Intel" as you follow instruction there after. Restart your Laptop and install Broadcom, Atheros respectively.

Please ensure that VISTA SP1 is installed on your system prior to installing these drivers!

Thinkpad r40 - wireless disappeared


Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)

Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.
