Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop.
Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot.
Observations:
; 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.
Solution:
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.

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.

SOURCE: I have hp pavilion dv4 laptop . The wifi is disabled by itself!

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.

I have a Windows 8 laptop (NE56R41U), when i start it up it says; The specific module could not be found. Run DLL. Could you help me?


Yes, windows update has deleted a file on your system that is necessary for your application. Go to microsofts website and download the free runtime environment for your version of windows. Down load both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions. Windows seems to switch between the both of them in some games and also applications.

which offers several other similar articles for different models.


The manual for the NE71B is available for download from the Gateway website here (I think)
http://us.gateway.com/gw/en/US/content/drivers-downloads
(you may choose to start from the main page and choose your location > support > drivers & downloads > select my product from a list > notebooks > NE series > NE71B > choose O/S > Documents > Download User Manual (Windows 8). You may like to do this anyway if you do not have a manual anyway. The Networiking section starts on p44, wireless on/off on p.51, but its not very specific I'm afraid.).
You might try 'Contact Support', 'chat with a support agent' is usually best (typing in a new window)

Gateway ne71b win 8 wireless won't turn on


Similar to another posted wireless issue found in a Gateway NE71B, I offer the same solution.

Check your BIOS version by entering the BIOS. As the Gateway logo appears after turning on the power, press either F1 or F2. You should get into the BIOS. Look for the current version. If the version is earlier than version 2.13, you will want to update the BIOS.

Hardware switch on a amilo fujitsu laptop


On some of the Amilo Models, the Wi-Fi button is actually a key combination on the keyboard. Have a look for a key with the wireless symbol on it - looks a bit like an antenna, and hold Fn while you press that key. Your Wireless should come back on.

Fujitsu's can be odd, cause the hardware button (mentioned above) doesn't actually disable the driver in Windows, just turns it off so no connections appear.
