You need to install the drivers for them. So say you have a linksys card.

Then you need to either install the cd that came with it or better yet visit linksys.com and click on their support / download links to find your model's correct software.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Wireless card


Not according to specs - its has wireless 802.11b/g installed. If wireless is not enabled, and there is no separate wireless button, check the function keys and look at the blue legends hat are on them. One of them may look like a transmitting antenna. To activate the key, press and hold the "Fn" key while pressing the function key with the legend to see if that activates the wireless. If so, pressing it again will deactivate it.

Activate bluetooth


hey steven,
The wireless card on this system was an optional purchase at point of sale. If your system came with the card then follow the the troubleshooting steps below.
  • Check the BIOS to ensure the wireless card is detected. Also verify the Wireless setting is turned on and not set to Always Off.
  • If the Bluetooth device is installed, also verify the radio LED is enabled. You can turn the wireless and Bluetooth cards on or off with the wireless switch.
  • If the card does not show up in the BIOS or Device Manager, try reseating the card.
Thank You,

Activate wireless bottom


maybe your wireless card is bad. Try this, remove the power cord and battery, turn the laptop over and remove the cover that is over the wireless. Hopefully the wirless is under the bottom, sometimes it might be under the keyboard or plamrest.

Anyway, remove the two antenna cables from the wireless card, and also remove the wireless card out of the slot that it fits it. Then after a few seconds put the wifi card back into the slot, attach the antennas, put the cover back on and reboot. Sometimes reseating helps.

Internet connection not working right compaq evo n1020v


Hello
First you will need to have the install disc for your card.Install driversoftware from cd or dvd, following directions.Once installed you should see a new hardware device has been found notification.

Next you will need to configure your card with the routers wep key or wireless security key.I am assuming wireless is activated on your router.Should see a light on the router lit under wireless,or a symbol.
1 start pc then start internet explorer.
2 Type in the top bar of ie 198.162.1.1 or 198.162.1.0 hit enter.
3 This should bring you to the routers home page.usaername=admin password=password or admin
4 Find your wireless tab or settings page looking for security area.
5 Find your wep or wireless security code,write this down.
6 Log off of router.
7 Go into network cards configuration program and put this wep code into the area provided.
8 Software may have found it automaticly, it just needs this code.

If you cant connect to router at step one use a ethernet cable from your pc to the router to log on.

Hope this helps.

Just bought this laptop - cannot get the Wireless


If wireless card is listed in device manager under network adapters-that means you dont have to install it. If you running on vista, go to control panel and find ssomething like wireless contol manager or wireless assistant and see if its not disabled there. may also be disabled in bios settings. on windows xp-check if windows has possibility to manage wireless networks or its blocked by third party software. for example i use bt voyager wireless card and its managed by bt software. built in cards are likely managed by windows. type services.msc in run box and see if wireless zero configuration service is enabled.

Activating wireless


Check the Device Manager to see if the Wireless card is working and enabled. If not reinstall the wireless card driver.
If this doesn't work, you may have a faulty wireless card.
If the wireless card is not built-in remove it and insert it into another computer to test the wireless card.

Passport 2068 only accepts WiFi card in startup.


When your card is inserted and after few minutes to activate Sw, right click on wireless card icon and try repair.
It's normally working for me 3 out of 5.
Sometime I have to retry.

Wireless Problems!


The computer looks for the cable because wireless is not working.

If wireless card is usb try removing laptop battery, unplugging power adapter and wifi cards, connect in five minutes and see if it works

If it still does not work, reinstall wireless card drivers.
If you have a disk reinstall them from disk.
If you lost the disk download drivers from the Internet, post model on fixya to get the link.

If the wireless card does not work after reinstalling drivers then it is probably faulty.

Note: if you use laptop internal wireless, usually you need to activate a switch to get it working.

Load wireless att card on my aspire 3680


Is the wireless card activated? there should be a switch on the laptop or you might have to press the FN button along with one of the Function keys (F5 for example, it should have a wifi logo on it).

If this is active then got to your network configuraton and make sure the card is enabled (right click and enable)

If it isn't there then it needs installing with the driver disk
