Question about Computers & Internet
I have a windows 8 gateway laptop(NE71B Series) and its seems as if my wifi switch is disable. Anyone with a bit of advice on how to resolve this problem would be very helpful.
Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop.
Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot.
; All drivers and devices are functional with no errors or conflicts.
; Wireless adapter has power and is not in Airplane mode.
; No wireless networks are visible even though there are normally as many as 12 networks available within the area.
; Wired Ethernet adapter works without issues.
Turns out the BIOS was v2.05. After updating the BIOS to v2.13, wireless connectivity is functional. All locally available wireless networks (SSIDs) are visible.
Notes of caution:
; A failed BIOS update will invalidate your warranty per Gateway chat support rep.
; Ensure you have a fully charged battery before updating the BIOS.
; Ensure your AC adapter is plugged in and functional prior to starting the BIOS updater.

Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look (((•))) Make sure its pressed on. The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen. The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in from left to right. Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network." You will see a list of available wireless networks. Choose a Wi-Fi network you want to connect to and select "Connect." Enter the password into the password text box if a password is required. If a password is not required, you will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network. Click "OK." Hope this helps.

Try this link and see if it helps you locate the driver you need for linux. These are the Broadcom drivers, http://zh-tw.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netlink.php

From a computer that has internet access, download the appropriate ethernet driver for your network card from the link above. As for the recovery disk, you'll have to contact Gateway for a replacement disk.

Your laptop goes into power save mode once the power suppply is disconnected. WIFI consumes a large amount of power so the system shuts it down to save power. You can disable it by going into control panel and power options. There you can change the power settings to allow wifi to run when using battery.
