MY WIPRO LAPTOP MODEL NO.BM49XX WIFI IS NOT WORKING


Last but not least, there is no WiFi router close to you, to connect to. You don't say anything about your WiFi router here. Did you set it up it yourself? When you don't have a router, you can't connect.

I looked at the specs, it does not say you have wireless. That said, you can look in Control Panel, Device Manager, Network Adapters, do you see a wireless adapter? If no, you can purchase a USB Network Adapter and install. The user guide should instruct you in the setup and use. Take a look at this, For Example: http://www.amazon.com/s?rh=n%3A13983791&ie=UTF8&psrk=usb+network+adapters

I was able to connect to my HP Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop to my WiFi Network using NetGear. When I reconfigured the network I could connect to all other network like Dell Lptop , Nokia Smart Phone and HP...


Hi!

Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)

If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA.
Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter.
If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.


Hope it helped,

Bogdan

My laptop is telling me that my wifi adapter cannot find wireless networks. My wifi is on but it says the adapter is not compatible.


Hi,
Make sure that the wireless router mode is the same as your laptops wifi adapter.
Older routers are using b/g network modes. Newer router are b/g/n. Check what your laptop's adapter mode is.

How can I install the wireless network adaptor on my laptop?


Hello,

The installation of wireless network adapter on your

PC is very easy.

I will try to explain how to go about the two parts

involved, i.e the hardware installation part and the

software installation part.

1.) Hardware

To install the hardware part, get a screwdriver,

unscrew the back of your notebook where you see a

symbol drawn that looks like a small rectangular

card. After doing this, you should see two wires that

has a form of hollow pin at the tip.It is always of two

colours, which are black and grey.

Next, get a technician or got to a compute store and

tell them you need a WiFi Card.

Make sure you specify that it is 54G or 108G card

you want.

After getting this chip, insert it into the available slot

provided for WiFi card on your system.

Then Connect the Black Wire to the Mains terminal,

and the Grey wire to the Aux terminal.

Then power on your system.

2.) Software

After you on your system, you should see "New

Hardware found", if you have the driver for the WiFi

Card, then insert it into the CDROM and select "do

not connect to the internet.

Click on next and under the CDROM/Floppy" try to

navigate to where the driver is on the CDROM.

then click on next and follow on-screen instructions

3.)Incase you have installed the adapter before, do

this:

Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System

first,

(For WIndows XP)

Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties-->Hardware-->Device Manager,



select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall



Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",


This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).



(For WIndows Vista)

Right-Click on my computer Icon, go to



Properties-->>Device Manager, select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall



Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",



This will also bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).



After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.



It should connect like that.



Try this out and kindly let me know how it goes,



Hope this helps.



Thank you for using Fixya.


Goodluck

I reinstalled XP and SP2. Now I need to configure the wireless connection. How do I do it?


Well, what you do is install any network drivers, for your WiFi adapter, then Install the software for your WiFi Card. Now your WiFi Router, has a Name.. an SSID, this is what you will "See" when you search for a network. Also it may have a WEP/WAP key... or "password" you need to know this. You should have all this info from when you installed the router. Now when you try to connect to the network, you choose the SSID & when asked enter your Key (Password/number) and you will be able to access the network. if there is none you just go straight through. This is done either through the Windows WiFi or the makers installed software.. it makes no difference really. If you use proprietary software you must turn off windows wifi manager.

My Wireless says non operational. It is a Intel pro/wireless 3945ABG Network Adapter. It is still installed but I do not show any kind of network connection.


Hello,

The first thing that I would advise you to do is,

Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,

Then go to "scan for hardware changes",

This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).

After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.

It should connect like that.

(In case you dont know how to uninstall the Adapter, Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties, Device Manager, then select the Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall.)

Hope this helps.
Goodluck

Ibm thinkpad t42 switch for wireless network


The T42 has a bulit-in wireless network adapter and a LAN network card. T42s most likely have an Intel wireless card or less likely a Cisco wireless card.
Your wireless network adapter may have been disabled in the BIOS
and/or
The drivers for the wireless network controller has not been installed.

To check the network adapter go to the Control Panel, Click on System, click on Hardware Tab then Device Manager. Then scroll down and click on Network adapters. If you don't see your network controller or you see a yellow ? against Other devices for the Network controller. Then either it has been disabled and/or the driver was not installed.

To get the driver for the network controller you need to dowload it from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site their support/download page from a computer that has Internet access. Make sure you select your laptop model and the driver for your Windows version.
Install the driver and you then need to configure the wireless adapter to suit your wireless router settings before you can access the Internet.
