We have an Advent 7088 laptop and want to connect it to wireless router. We thought a wireless facility was already installed in the 7088 but when we try the wireless on/off button nothing happens. What...


Try this: I found it after doing some searching on the web.

Wireless card stops working after upgrading to Windows Vista
After upgrading to Windows Vista everything works fine apart the Marvell Wireless card, when you press the button nothing happens.
There seems to be three different ways of solving this problem (there is a fourth - don't install Vista) and I've listed them below, hopefully at least one should work for you.
The first solution is to press the wireless button while Windows Vista is loading, you have to be quick though as it only works if you press the button between the loading scrolling lines logo (after the post screen) and before the windows logo appears.
The second is to go into Device Manager, select the Marvell Wireless card and then go to Properties>Advanced>Default Adhoc Mode. Here change the Default Adhoc mode to B or G. When you confirm the change the wireless connection should become active, if it doesn't then press the wireless button and try changing the setting again.
The third method is to create a desktop shortcut to the wireless adapter. Go to [Network and Sharing Centre]>[Manage Network Connections] and then right click the wirless connection and choose Create Shortcut. You can then switch on the wireless at any time, just point at the shortcut then right click and chose Disable. Once its disabled right click on the shortcut again and choose Enable. It should then connect within 20-30 seconds.

Wireless Connection


You might have an anti-virus or firewall program installed on this laptop that is blocking your access. Norton Internet Security and TrendMicro PC-cillin are notorious for creating connectivity problems if they are not properly configured.

Check the router settings, if the router is set to only use 802.11N wireless it won't pick up a computer that is using 802.11G or 802.11B wireless.

Good luck

I am struggling to obtain a wireless connection on my laptop. Despite my wireless key being switched on the status is described as 'disconnected'. does this suggest a fault with the laptop?


Most of the problems you can solve in wireless connection by Turning off your modem and Router for 20 seconds and turn it on back again.
Hope it would help you too.

FIRST you check for any security options enabled - like password or in the wireless advance settings you pefer to connect only to this network = make that to any wireless access point. The computer is sending packets but return packets will only comes through filters like firewalls or security measures definetly your problem belong to the security settings with your pc which is not accepting any outside devices to connect - check your firewall setting and under network properties check internet protocol settings also check your antivirus blocking the connection try to ping the wireless adpater ip of your pc by itself are your getting the reply???
