My wireless adapter on my Packard Bell EasyNote R4 series, has a red "X" through it on "Network Connections" and it doesn't recognise any wifi in the area. I have downloaded all the drivers i can find for wireless but none of them make any difference. the "Fn + F1" shortcut doesn't do anything either. I have used Driver Detective and downloaded the latest wireless driver but i cant make the "X" go away.

Did you ping 127.0.0.1 to test the computers own basic network setup?
Did you do a yum update and the network driver was updated?
Did you check service network status?
You could also update to at least 5.7 for better network support.
It seldom happens, but network cards do die. This usually happens out of the blue with no forewarning. The only way to tell is to put the card into another computer and/or to replace the existing card. Good thing is, they are really not expensive.
The problem may come from wrong driver installed.
Is your OS genuine? If yes the problem is not from the from OS. iF NO, Reinstall your Os using XP Service pack 3 and get all driver installed. If there are more problem on this the hard ware has to be checked. You are welcome.
Hi, 1.Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 2.Click Network and Internet Connections. 3Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections. 4.Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter. Good luck! And Thanks.
Check in your system: Click Control Panel, then double click System. On the Hardware tab click Device Manager. Click the (+) sign besides the Network Adapter. See if the Packard bell wireless adaptor is there. If its is not there, right click the Network Adapter and click Scan for hardware changes, and reinstall the network adapter.
If the Packard bell network adapter is already there, click Start and click My Network Places. On the left side of the Network Connection, click View Network Adapter. The wireless network adapter should be there. Right click the wireless network adapter and choose properties. Give check mark on Show icon in notification area when connected (to show you if there is wireless notification), and give check mark to Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity (to show if the wireless network is disconnected). and click OK
Turn on the orange broadband livebox. And right click the the wireless network connection (on Network Connection) and choose View Available Wireless Networks. And the click the Orange broadband Livebox to use this wireless Network connection.
