SOURCE: Window Re-Install and no Ethernet Driver

use another computer to get the drivers from the dell webite (at home, library, friends) and save them on a CD or removable media. This would be the fastest and cost effective way. If you can get on the net to post this question then you can download and save the drivers as well

I can't get the network controller drivers to install correctly. I have installed the drivers for my acer aspire 5742g. The FN+F3 can't activate the wireless as a result


Have you installed the correct driver? The 5742G could be installed with an Atheros or a Broadcom wireless card, and these use different drivers.

You can either visually check which make of card is installed in your laptop, or try both drivers and see if either one works.

The following links will initiate a download:

Atheros:

http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Wireless%20LAN/Wireless%20LAN_Atheros_9.0.0.202_W7x86W7x64_A.zip?acerid=634176982033714605&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 5742G&OS=721&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=EMEA_27

Broadcom:

http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Wireless%20LAN/Wireless%20LAN_Broadcom_5.100.249.2_W7x86W7x64_A.zip?acerid=634176982752697291&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 5742G&OS=721&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=EMEA_27


Failing that, perhaps your wireless card has physically failed in some way and needs replacing.

Hi ,cant get my dell wireless 1370 wlan mini-pci card to work ,just has a cross over it and wont allow me to activate it ?


Hello,

It may result from a driver issue. Go to Control Panel > Device Manager (Windows Vista / 7) or System > Material tab > Device Manager (Windows XP). From there you will see the list of installed hardware. You should also see your wireless network card under Network Adapters or Ethernet Controller.

There you should find a red cross on this hardware. Right click on it and select enable.

If this does not help, right click on the Network Adapter name and uninstall it. Then reboot your laptop. Once restarted, Windows should detect a new hardware and may install the driver automatically. If it is not installed automatically, you have to do a manual install.

Normally, you should have received a CD containing the drivers when you bought your laptop. You can install the driver from the CD.

Hope this helps !!

If you have Windows XP then try this, for Windows 7 and Vista also the procedure is similar. If you have Vista or 7 then tell me I'll post the tutorial for that also.
  1. In Windows XP, click the Start button and select Control Panel.

  2. Click the Network and Internet Connections category.

  3. Note: If you are using Classic View, you will see the control panel icons instead of categories. Double-click the Network Connections icon.

  4. Click the Network Connections control panel icon.

    wxp_e02.gif

  5. Double-click Local Area Connection, listed under LAN or High-Speed Internet.

    wxp_e03.gif

  6. When the Local Area Connection Status window is displayed, click the Properties button.

    wxp_e04.gif

  7. In the Local Area Connection Properties window, do the following:
    • Verify that the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) box is checked.
    • Note: If your Ethernet adapter is not listed in the Connect using box, you need to install your adapter.

    • Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) once to highlight it and then click the Properties button.

  8. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window, do the following:
    • Click Obtain an IP address automatically.
    • Click Obtain DNS server address automatically.

Need Network Adapters in Device Manager, missing tunnel


If, when you go to Device Manager, you see an item listed as just a Network Controller or Network Device, with a yellow exclamation point attached, it means that your PC doesn't have the right software driver available to make this piece of hardware work. Go after the right driver by using the web...www.hp.com HP has purchased Compaq, and supports Compaq endusers by providing drivers. Click the header at the top of this page that says "Support & Drivers," choose Download Drivers in Step 1, then in Step 2, enter your model number and so on, which will provide you with a list of all the drivers that are available for your model. Of course, look for and download the driver for your network card, then install it by (usually) just double-clicking the downloaded file, reading the screens and following the instructions. (assuming that you're probably not able to access the internet with YOUR machine, get a friend to go to this site for you and after downloading the file required, copy it to a flash drive or burn it to a CD so that you can transfer it to your machine)

Alternately...IF your network card is listed under Network Devices in Device Manager WITHOUT an exclamation point attached, then ignore the preceeding instructions and try this instead: left click once on the Network Card (will be named after the manufacturer, such as Broadcom or Intel), then RIGHT click and choose UNINSTALL from the menu that appears. Agree to any warnings that appear about it causing it not to work. RESTART your PC. You should see the desktop icons come up and then Windows should rediscover the network card and reinstall a fresh set of drivers to support the card, wiping out the old set of software drivers that were potentially corrupt and allowing your PC to work again to gain access to the internet, etc.. Best Wishes, Jim

PS- If neither of these solutions offered here fix your issue, either re-ask your question in this forum and offer more information about your situation or take your PC to a local computer repair shop and let them take a look at your situation.

Linksys WPC54GS wireless adapter installation issue


There's a possibility that the adapter is defective. However, you may still try the following:

1. Make sure to uninstall the software if you still have it installed. Remove it from the Programs list or under Add/Remove Programs.
2. Check Device Manager and make sure adapter is not under Network Adapters nor Other Devices. It might be called Network Controller if driver is not installed correctly.
3. Unplug card, shutdown computer and when PC is powered off, plug card back and restart computer.You may insert the CD on this process, but do not run/continue the CD setup wizard.
4. When computer is back on, you should get a Found New Hardware bubble message or wizard.

Just finish the wizard and tell me how it went. Goodluck!
