The wireless card wont be locked to the bios. Swap it out and install the drivers once it is loaded. It will just see it as a new piece of hardware.If it doesnt work, take the new one out and put the old one back in, it wont destroy your computer.
Check in the device manager if your computer is seeing the wireless card driver.
Right click my computer, properties, hardware, device manager,network adapters.
Is the wireless card listed?
If it is right click uninstall and reboot on reboot the wireless card should be seen as new hardware follow the wizard and let it install the driver.
If the computer is seeing the card but it has a yellow mark next to it the driver is not loaded you need to get the appropriate driver for that type of card from it's support site or once again try the uninstall reboot.
That’s the wireless card.
Is the net-gear showing an internet connection.
Put a cat 5 cable from your laptop to the net-gear and try to connect via cable if that works it's got to be the wireless card driver or the wireless settings in the net-gear however if they worked previously there is no reason to suspect the router settings.
Hope this helps
When you reformatted your HD, did you use IBM's method which utilizes a hidden partition? This results in a laptop which appears to be as if it just came from the store, like a brand new laptop.
This method sets up the computer in the exact way that IBM built it. And puts all devices in their proper configurations.
If you have not done too much yet, you might want to try that method right away and see if it doesn't make a big difference in the way your laptop works.
Are you using the windows utility to connect or one that came with the laptop wireless card ?
It is possible that the two different things are both trying to control the card and only one can actually do it !
I usually let windows do it for me and then goto control panel, administrative services, services, and turn off the wireless zero config services and disable it.
That usually ensures a more stable wireless connection.
Unless you need to have a specific IP and have also given it the DNS serever as well then quite often it is better to set the TCP/IP properties for both IP and DNS to automatic.
That should fix you up but just in case it doesnt make sure you 100% have the correct drivers for the wireless card. Some drivers nearly work but not quite and I have seen them cause problems similar to yours
If it is an Atlantis(DV6000-6499) it is most likely the mainboard, and it might be coverd by an extended warranty.
If it is an Ares(DV6500-6999) you should try updatigng th BIOS first. If that doesnt help i would go for another WLAN card. It might also be a defective mainboard, but that doesnt happen as often on Ares models as Atlantis.
This happen regularly on the older Toughbooks. Find an XP or Win2000 modem driver for the 27 or 72 at Panasonic's support site or driverguide.com and it should work just fine. It will allow the machine (XP) to recognize the modem and install the drivers.
Pcg U1 doesnt have wireless card. But is has PC card slot. You can buy a PCMCIA wireless card or USB wireless to get access to wireless internet access or PCMCIA modem if you use a modem to access the internet.
