Network adapter not installed or not present message

When attempting to install Comcast software on a Gateway computer who's hard drive was recently reformatted, I receive an error regarding a problem with the network adapter. It claims that the adapter is not installed or not present. HELP. I have installed a new Ethernet card but even then the PC is not recognizing the new driver. Gateway was not helpful at all b/c the 1 yr warranty has run out.

Hi,

Restart your computer in safe mode. Press F8 while rebooting. Once in safe mode, go to Start - control Panel - system. Right click on and remove the network card devices (you might see more of them there than you do in normal mode). Then restart the computer.

It should detect the new card and allow you to install the drivers for it. If it still doesn't detect the new NIC card, try powering off the machine. Open the case, and make sure the card is properly seated inside the computer case. Press down on it firmly. Then restart and see if it detects the card.

If it doesn't detect the card, the card might be bad. If you have another card, I'd suggest trying a different one, to see if it recognizes a card that you know is good.

Try these things and let me know how it goes. Thanks.

How do I get netgear to internet. I dont have internet service at this time.I am trying to internet service through a wireless system. I have a netgear installation package. It does not have software.


First you have to subscribe to an ISP for internet service such as Comcast, Verizon,ATt&T, You then have to connect a router to a computer that is to serve as your gateway. You then have to activate that router so that it brocast your Gateway ID over the air. Then you have to install drivers in your Laptop to access that gateway through the receiver WG111 adapter. You can down load those drivers at: http://kb.netgear.com/app/home/session/L2F2LzEvc2lkL0dubGU4UWpr be sure you know what version of the WG111 you have as each version is different.

My computer will not install the wireless USB software. I need help. I get through the first couple of prompts and then it just looks like it keeps loading but does not.


What is the operating system on your computer. If it is windows XP or VISTA, then try to install the adapter using the found new hardware wizard.
Do not run the disc that comes with the wireless adapter. connect the adapter to the computer first. you will get the message found new hardware.
if you do not get the message that means the adapter is detected by the computer or the software might be installed already. uninstall the software and then connect he adapter.
If you get the found new hard ware message then it will ask you can windows connect ....
select = no not at this time and click next.
on the next window select the option install software automatically and insert the disc that comes with the adapter. it will install the software .
after that you will need to connect to the network.

What does ' a disk read error occurred press ctr alt del to restart, everytime i do it it gives me the same error??


You could have a hard drive problem. To check the hard drive boot up to the Windows XP cd in repair mode. At the C prompt type: chkdsk /r
This will start a program called Check Disk that will evaluate your hard drive and attempt to fix any errors. it Check Disk is successful it will complete 100% and return to a C prompt. You can then attempt to reboot. If Check Disk finds unrecoverable errors you will need to purchase a new hard drive and rebuild the OS.

No Active Internet Connection


If you want to use the wireless portion of your router, you would need a wireless adapter installed on your desktop. If you are getting internet on your desktop then this means that your wired connection is fine to the router is fine. The WMP54G adapter will work with your router, however if you are not planning on connecting to the internet wirelessly through the router then there is no need to purchase the adapter. Hope that this helps you out.

Try to acquire an address from the router by performing a ipconfig /release command, then ipconfig /renew at the command line. If that doesn't work then you may have to manually enter IP address and DNS address and Default Gateway address in the IP Properties page of your adapter. Could be your present address is using APIPA or Windoze Automatic Private IP Address of 169.254.x.x
