System restore might work for you or on the other hand you can take the drivers CD that came with your mobo and try to reinstall the drivers.

Dell inspiron 560 won't recognize network adapter


Try reinstalling the NIC driver. If its separate network card, connected in PCI adapter, try to remove and plug it back in to see if its found after.

If these actions do not help, maybe NIC was damager with the power outage, it can happen.

Dell inspiron 560 won't recognize network adapter


if there is no netework adapter in device manager or any device that is not instaled try checking in BIOS if it is enabled. sometimes after power loss bios is reset. if it is enabled in BIOS that short power outage probably killed your network adapter. you can add some PCI network adapter and solve your problem.

Network adapter no longer pings and I can't print,


I had the same problem with a power outage affecting this printer. The printer has surge protection built in, but the network adapter still seemed to be affected. This is what I did to fix it:
Take out all the data cables and turn the printer off. Open the side panel and press the continue and cancel buttons. While holding the buttons turn the printer back on and hold until all the lights blink. Wait about 30minutes and close the side door. After a few seconds, the printer will restart and print a test page. This basically resets the memory on the printer. Also, do NOT turn it off in the middle or you'll destroy the printer.

Due to 2 power outages in 1 morning I reinstalled Windows XP but cannot install A&T Yahoo says I need an ethernet adapter and network adapter can this be reinstalled.


1. Try to reinstall the ethernet driver.
2. what you might try is to open up the computer case and try another slot that is if its not part of the motherboard.

If you had power outtages and it has effect your computer you might want to purchase a battery backup with protection as if a power outtage spikes you could loose your equipment to damage.


Thanks for using Fixya!

Power outage blew out adaptor?


You can try first to connect the adapter on a different USB port and check if it will be detected if not detected if possible try to connect it on a different computer and hopefully it will be detected but if still no adapter is already dead and needs a replacement and linksys has a 3 year warranty for this one so if its under warranty have it replace, you can contact Linksys via this number 8003267114...

Wireless adapter not showing up in network conections,icon


This happened to me when I had to install a wireless router in my house using my laptop to initialize the network for the first time.
The start up software messed with my settings for wireless detection on my laptop. It turned off the automatic detect for wireless networks in the
"Wireless Zero Configuration"
(This has the settings for the 802.11 wireless adapters
i.e. the one that comes with the R4000 presario)

to get to this hit start>run...
and type in this:
%SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s

go to "Wireless Zero Configuration" and enable automatic startup
, if the service is stopped, start it.
hit the apply button to save your settings.

About laptop ethernet...


First figure out whether your hardware is ok and driver is installed properly. In Windows XP, click Start , right-click My Computer , and select Properties .
  1. In Windows 98 and Me, right-click My Computer , and select Properties .
  2. In Windows XP, click the Hardware tab, and then the Device Manager button. In Windows 98 and Me, click the Device Manager tab.
  3. If the Network adapters category is present with a (+) sign , then skip to Step 6. If Network Adapters has a (-) sign , continue to Step 5. Disregard adapters that do not reference an Ethernet Adapter .
  4. If a network adapter is not listed inside, do one of the following items based on the condition of the networking hardware:
    • Networking hardware is not installed. Install a new network card (desktop computer) or a new network PCMCIA card (notebook computer) per the card manufacturers' suggestions. This does not apply to on-board networking hardware.
    • The network card is not seated fully into its socket. For Desktops, remove the side-case, reseat the network card, and replace side case. For notebook computers, remove and reseat the network PCMCIA card. This does not apply to on-board networking hardware.
    • If the computer is older, it may need to have jumpers on the network card set to an IRQ and address range that is not already being used by another device. Remove the side-case, set the jumpers on the card, and replace the side case. Replacing the older network card with a newer Plug and Play network card is probably a better option.
    • For desktop PCs with on-board networking hardware, reset the BIOS:
      1. Restart the PC.
      2. Press F1 repeatedly when the first screens appear.
      3. Press F5 and Enter to reset the BIOS to default settings.
      4. Press F10 and Enter to save the settings and exit BIOS setup .
      5. Restart the PC.
      6. Check Device Manager again for the presence of the Networks adapters category. If the network adapter name is still missing, the on-board network adapter may be damaged. The motherboard should be replaced, or a PCI network adapter should be installed.
  5. If the network adapter is listed, but has a yellow exclamation mark over its icon c00060708.jpg , do one of the following:
    • Software drivers and supportive files may be missing or corrupted. Remove the device from Device Manager and reinstall the software by restarting the computer. See Step 5: Reinstalling network adapter software drivers .
    • If the computer is older, it may need to have jumpers on the network card set to an IRQ and address range that is not already being used by another device. Remove the side-case, set the jumpers on the card, and replace the side case. Replacing the older network card with a newer Plug and Play card is probably a better option.
  6. If the network adapter listed has a green adapter icon c00060709.jpg , the networking adapter is probably functioning correctly. If the PC still cannot connect to the Internet, make sure to complete the following steps before continuing:
    • The cable or DSL hardware may have stopped responding. Reset the cable or DSL hardware using the manufacturer suggestions.
    • There still may be a connection problem. Recheck the cable connections and replace any cables that have been pinched or that you suspect are bad.
    • The Internet Service may be down at your provider. Most Service Providers have a telephone support number. Call the ISP support number. If an outage is occurring, an automated response about system wide service outages will probably play. In this case wait until the service comes back.
    If the network adapter icon is listed without problems, and the connections, service, and modem are working properly, then refresh the networking drivers.
Thanks
