I'm using fujitsu lifebook s2020 and i have a problem with the wifi..my wifi is kind of disappeared or lost..how can i get it back? thank you


Good Day

The first thing you should check is that you WiFi is on. What I mean with that is that laptops usually have a button to switch on or off WiFi to generally save battery life. If you are sure that WiFi is on (usually the WiFi button's light is on) than check if ou can see a netwok adapter.

If you dont see it, there can be two reasons. 1. Another program which got installed on the laptop has controll over the WiFi and the WiFi will not be controlled my your Operating system. 2. Check the properties of your network place. It might contain the WiFi adapter disabled. Ceck under the properties and ut the tick poxes on "Show if adapter is connected" and "Show if there is a problem".

Last resort is to check under you Device manager (Right click My computer, Manage, Device Manager) and make sure the WiFi adapter's drivers are proberly installed.

Hope this helps

Have actiontec dsl modem router combo i believe because with our contract w/qwest we have wifi connection they gave us 2 actiontec wifi usb adapters but xbox360 doesnt reconize the adapter, i have xp media...


You have two options that I know will work.

Run a Ethernet cable from you router or switch to the XBOX and just plug it in. Ethernet is good for 325 feet but it is best if you keep it below 300 feet. Here is a good place to shop for this type of stuff: www.newegg.com

You can also get an WIFI adapter that is 100% compatible with your XBOX. Actiontec is the worst of the worst. Here is an real Microsoft XBOX adapter: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Network-Adapter-Networks/dp/B000B6MLV4

FYI: Customer support at any ISP or cable company are non-technical people that have no knowledge of how things work. If they did they would be answering phones all day. I find it hard to believe that they would know what works on an XBOX and they are fools for recommending Actiontec products.

Cannot seem to get wireless connection . ethernet connection works fine . do i need usb adapter to bring my 3 year old laptop up to N standard ? Ray


If your laptop does not have a wireless card built into the computer then yes I would go and buy a usb wifi adapter because you cant get wifi if you dont get one.

No wifi


The Fujitsu Lifebook S5582 does not have an integrated Wireless network card. This laptop was manufactured in 2001-2002. The integrated Wifi card was not generaly common in laptop computers until 2004.

So, you will need to buy a wireless adapter if you want to have wifi connectivity. Since this laptop is quite old, I would recommend a PCMCIA (a.k.a. PC card) adapter instead of a USB because it will be much lighter on the processor load.

You also have to be aware that using a wireless card will use more battery power and therefore shorten the expected autonomy of the laptop when running on battery.
