Trouble getting the wireless card to connect to the internet
I did everything from restarting to going into device manager and clicking on other device and all that jazz and I finally got it to tell me I was connected to the name my parents use for identifying their internet, tells me I have very good signal but i have low to no connectivity as far as my status. I am extremely frazzled and am about to throw the whole computer, card and all out my window. Please help!

For that uninstall it's driver from computer.
You can uninstall it from device manager and add remove program.
Right click on my computer icon then click on property then hardware->device manager then you can see all drivers list uninstall netgear driver from there then go to start menu->control panel->add remove program then uninstall it's driver from there too.
Download driver from above link then install then restart computer then check.
If your netgear device is fine then you can use internet again after reinstalling driver..
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
I believe your question is how to uninstall and reinstall the nic.
Go to control panel->system->hardware->device manager
alternatively type devmgmt.msc in the run dialog box
click on the plus sign infront of network adaptors right click on the network card present click on uninstall. You will get a warning that you are about to uninstall this device from your system, select OK and once that device is gone restart the system go to the action tab on the top in device manager and select scan for hard ware changes the network card would be reinstalled automatically.
I would try a few things. first go into control panel, system, then device manager. right click on you adapter and disable it for a few minutes. unplug the adapter and turn pc off. restart pc, wait a few minutes for every thing to boot back up, then plug the adapter in again. wait a few minutes. if this are not working still , go back into device manager and confirm it is enabled
go in device manager select your wireless card,uninstall it then refresh it or restart computer,and alow it to auto install,maybe a program changed the configuration.Give me feed back on this at email@example.com
Check to see if your wireless card is displayed under “Network Adaptors” in “Device Manager”. You can access the "Device Manager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If it is detected and there are no alerts or errors, try uninstalling the wi-fi card, reboot the laptop and reinstall the drivers.

Okay let's go back to the beginning, I need you to unplug the device first. Restart the computer. Plug the wireless card into another slot. See if the computer installs the device. Sounds like the device is not loaded in correctly.
To check to see your device has loaded go to the control panel. Double click on system, if you cannot see system icon click on Switch to Classic View then select system. Select the hardware tab. Click on Device manager. Double Click on Network Adapters. Under that you will now see at least 2 devices. The on board ethernet card and the other the wireless network. If there is a device then your done and you can close off and run your CD for the linksys. If you still don't have the card installed, you should see if it works on someone elses laptop before you give up. If it doesn't then it's faulty, but if it does then you will need to reinstall your windows program as it's not functioning properly for you pcmia card.
*NEWS FLASH. I just had a thought, windows drivers for your pcmia or what it's called needs drivers in order to operate correctly. You will need to go online and search for your laptop drivers. Look for your laptop company like HP.com or Dell.com and so on. Let me know if you have any luck! Will help others if this is the error!
Hello, Click start, right click my computer, click manage. From there click device manager. This will list all installed devices including sound. Right click sound device and Click Update driver. Follow instructions. Reboot computer. If this doesn't work, get manufacture and part numbers off sound card. Go to manufacture web site and do a search for card number and download driver. Hope this helps
