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.

Network adaptetr issue


First make sure you have the latest drivers downloaded for your card.
Then go to control panel, device manager, and make sure wireless card is enabled.
You can also go to your wireless properties and make sure that the card is enabled and working correctly. Use add hardware if needed. If you have an installation cd, you should install it.

This could even be the Dsl modem loosing internet sync, They will tell you its you're end and thats fine check the modem, it also could be the ethernet cards going into standby Thus turning off the wake on lan feature in bios or other software would provent the card from going to sleep.

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.
