    I have a Vaio VGN FS660 laptop. A couple of years ago I had the Wireless card replaced with a 1370 mini-PCI Nic card (probably Dell). I recently had to reset my computer and now the wireless does not work. i think i need the drivers for it. how can i find out for sure what the model of the wireless card is?

    any help?

Just bought acer Z5700 but i have to plug the cable into the router. i thought this product was wi fi what am i doing wrong ?


You probably never enabled the wireless card ..Go to network folder and start the wireless connection ..In there select to connect wireless and teh card will enable the wireless and will show available networks after ..
Also check in the device manager to see if the wireless card is proper installed ..if it is not ..just download and install the drivers from support site ..or install them from the recovery partition or from the disk if you have one .
to get into device manager .click right on computer icon ..select properties than device manager ..In there look for wifi card ..click right on it and select enable ..If it is in yellow it means it has no driver ..and try to click right on it and select update driver ..
Also see that it may have a button for the wireless to be enabled on it ..Im not sure but it may be something similar to laptops..just a button needed to be pressed in order to enable the wireless card without any other intervention ..If the card is enabled it will appear in the tray from task bar (right area ) where all active programs appear ..Right click on it ...and select to show networks ..and select yours and connect ..

Wireless on laptop not active, switch not working


First, go to device manager and see if it was detected. Then, go to the properties and check out to see if it is working.

Next, go to command line by typing cmd in the run dialogue box and type ipconfig /all

If you get a mac address from the network card, then go ping 127.0.0.1 and see if TCP/IP is installed correctly.

If the device manager detects the card, and when you ping 127.0.0.1 and get a response, then the problem isn't the actual wireless card.

If this happens, do a windows system restore to when it was working. Then, if you have to, do a destructive system restore. If it still doesn't detect the card, then the problem is with the wireless card and it needs to be replaced.

Contact the laptop manufacturer to see where the closest repair depot is.

If you have done all of these and still can't get the wireless activemore than likely the ping the mac address of the Just go to command line and type ipconfig /all

Wireless LAN


You can tell if its the driver by going into Device manager. Start>right click on My Computer>click on Manage>then find device manager in the left plane window. Look down the list of hardware and find network adapter. Click on the plus sign and it should show you are card with 802.1xx on it, that's your wireless lan card, if there is a yellow, red or black symbol next to it then just right click on it and choose :"reinstall driver" see if that helps. If everything looks fine then let me know there is one more true way to check if it is your wireless card or something else. If you have any questions let me know. Pls rate this solution.

Got a hp laptop with wireless on it the wireless has just stopet working i have to use a usb adapter so that i can go on the internet.can you tell me how to get my wirelss back.thank you.


does the non working wireless card still show up in the device manager?
if so does it show up as installed or with error?

if not is it enabled in the bios?

Also i have seen people accidently turn off the internal wireless card by pressing the little button on the laptop without realizing it or on some laptops the internal card can be turned on and off with function key combination..

On some models when you turn off the internal wireless card with the litttle switch the card will still show up in the device manager as installed and look ok but will not find any networks at all...
and right clicking on the icon and selecting enable radio does nothing untill you phisically turn it on with the little switch

there should be some sort of light or indicator somewhere on the laptop that lights up when the wireless is on..

what model HP laptop do you have?

Did you see the wireless signal or your network status in the computer with the wireless adaptor?
If yes, select your wireless network and connect your device.

If no, check the status of your wireless card first
My PC >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network

If the wireless is marked ( ! ) Install the right driver for your wireless card

If ok, try to set up your wireless connection with windows wireless utility instead of HP utility.
(if necesary uninstall HP utility)

If the firewall can't be fixed this issue is related to your antivirus that it is blocking the setting.

Let me know how it is going...

hi, as you came online, findout the name of the device from the device manager and search the driver in the net. down load the driver, place it on a folder and go for update the driver from device manager, show the folder, to install it from there.

if not worked let me know

Wireless Lan on HP Pavilion M1000


Surely you can find out if you have a wireless network card installed . For this you can goto device manager and under network adapters look for any wireless adapter.

Heres How you check device manager.
  • Right-click My Computer then select Properties
  • Select the Hardware tab
  • Click the Device Manager button
  • Alternative solution: invoke devmgmt.msc
  • Alternative solution #2: Device Manager is part of the Computer Management, which also includes Event Viewer, Services Manager, Disk Management, as well as many other things. Right-Click My Computer then select Manage to start Computer Management, or invoke compmgmt.msc.

Also I am not too sure about what system you are using and whats the operating system you are using.
