Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Adapter problem I have a dell inspiron b130 laptop and am unable to connect to the internet wirelessly. I am able to connect through an ethernet connection. When start up occurs, a window opens that says "adapter problem, the driver isn't installed". I have searched in device manager under network adapters and there are non listed. I used to have them. Now I don't know what was installed on the computer when I bought it for wireless network adapters. How do I get that back, or find out what is compatable with this computer. The only thing listed under network adapters is broadcam 440x 10/100 integrated controller.

The only way you would be able to do that right now is to use an ethernet cable. The second way is to by a wireless card and install it in your laptop.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop that I'm trying to connect wirelessly. It's not recognizing our home wireless network but my husband's laptop does. What can I do?


Hi,

First of all make sure that your antivirus software firewall is not blocking it.
I suggest you uninstall all the antivirus softwares your pc has completely first and then restart your pc and see if your laptop recognizes the wireless internet.

let me know the result.

Thank you for using fixya.

Unable to connect to internet


Hi.

What do you mean by "reloading Windows"? Did you repair it? Maybe did reinstallation? If so, you may need to install drivers for your Ethernet adapter. You will need to specify Ethernet adapter manufacturer and model (if it is onboard adapter, then motherboard manufacturer and model), so I can provide you with the download link, in case you don't have the drivers.
