One way or another you will have to download the drivers or get a factory install disc. Once its downloaded, put it on a flash drive or burn it.

Those are really your only options.

Do i need bt wireless for on demand connection I only have bt broadband


You will need a wireless router, like the Apple Airport Express. It will connect to your broadband modem via an RJ45 (ethernet) cable.

Having problems connecting to internet on my eeepc 2g surf. warning message appears: something about dcopserver. I have had no problems before and haven't changed anything: location, wireless broadband...


you may have a wireless connection over-riding your connection if you are using auto-find in wireless connect settings.
Change it to priortize the connection you want.

Try to reconfigure your wireless so that your broadband is controlling your wireless instead of the Acer.

Wireless connection problem


BT is right, the fault is at your end, because you can connect to the Internet with an ethernet cable.
You have lost your wireless connection with the wireless hub.
This could be low signal strength (especially if the wireless access point is in one part of the house and your laptop is in another room)
OR Your laptop wireless card has lost its wireless access configuration.
Check your laptop wireless configuration, check your signal strength, check your SSID, check your security (WEP or WAP),
Have you got MAC address filtering.
Go to control panel, click on network connections, right click on Wireless Network, Click on repair (might fix your connection problem), Else right click on Status (should give you indication of how your wireless is functioning or not functioning).
Check your TCP/IP settings is set for "Obtain an IP address automatically"
Without more information it is difficult to identify exactly what is wrong with your connection.

Wireless configuration


Christalnet,
I'm afraid I'm a technical novice. I'm using windows xp, and each time bt have offered assistance they have taken over the computer and wizzed around checking programmes, changing settings, changing channels and attempting to connect to the hub. I've been in the dark as to what exactly they have adjusted, and each time I've been connected to a different technition.

My Wireless internet card don't work


i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.


Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
