If it is the hardware information do you know how to get to a command prompt via start button then run (in XP) or just type in at bottom at start button on Vista. type this in and hit enter. devmgmt.msc now open this up it is called device manager. now scroll down till you see network adapters expand this now you will see all network adapters installed just right click the one you want and hit properties. i hope this helps
if it is the ip address and that info let me know i was unsure of your question.

Hello i got integreted network card on me dell dimension 8250 i was trying to get drivers from dell site but me pc still doeasnt see me network card please help me as quick its possible


On a computer that DOES have Internet access,
access the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.dell.com
and select "Dimension" and "8250".
Select the device-driver for the NIC.
Download it.
Copy the download to a CD-recordable disk, or to a USB memory-stick.
Move the copy of the file to your Dell.
Run the software to install the device-driver for the NIC.

I had a working Dell computer - accessing the internet through a wireless router - computer became unbearably slow - re-installed Windows XP 2002 SP1 everything's fine except the network adapter that was...


You don't say what make/model of network adapter (NIC), whether it's wired or wireless, or if it was operating under the same service pack level before, so I have to make a lot of assumptions.

Is Windows really not recognizing it (ie: does it have an exclamation mark next to the NIC in device manager?) or is it being recognized by Windows but just cannot connect to the wireless router? If the latter, check your wireless configuration (SSID, WPA key, etc). Since you have WinXP SP1, it could be that there is not a driver for that particular NIC. Later service packs include updated drivers as well as bug and security fixes. Recommend you identify the NIC and if you have the driver disk for it, go into Windows device manager to select a reinstall from that disk. If you don't have it, use another computer to download its driver and after installing it and getting Internet access, you should also download and install the latest SP, which would be SP3.

Reloaded OS (Vista) and not can't connect to my functioning Wireless Router. Device Manager does not show a Wireless NIC.


If you don't even have the wireless driver installed that would be why you can't see the wireless network/router. If you give me the model of the computer/laptop or motherboard. I would be happy to get you the correct drivers. If this is a 3rd party wireless nic that wasn't installed by the manufacturer then I would need the model number of the specific NIC. Once I have that information I can assist you further.
Thank you,

I have a persistent red light on the wireless adaptor, but the xbox is not recognising that it is plugged in. There is no option for the xbox to search for a network


Blinking green means initializing, steady green means it's found a wireless access point and connected.

Steady red means it's looking for a wireless network (wireless access point) which means you have to configure your SOHO router with an SSID that's broadcast so the wireless xbox NIC can find it.

I think you may have confused a comment I made - the xbox can be connected to your SOHO router by either a WIRE (ethernet cable) OR Wireless NIC (network interface card). If you're using one, disconnect the other!

If you have wireless enabled on your SOHO (small office home office) router then you should either use WEP or WPA for wireless security WPA-2 is recommended. This means you will have to know the key to attach to the wireless network. If someone else set it up then you will have to ask them for the key / passphrase.

Sounds like the NIC isn't the problem but the attaching to the wireless access point (WAP) is. Try www.xbox.com and search for some support regarding your situation. They have a good how to that details the installation / configuration step by step and it sounds like its one of those steps you're missing, unless I've misunderstood.

Good luck,

I have a dlink router and I want to connect my usb modem to it


is this an additional router?

Verizon are issuing modem with built in wired and wireless modem.

How do I properly set up a D-Link Router with a Westell Modem? (#7125)
This FAQ is for setting up a BellSouth supplied Westell 2100/2200/6100 modem (Models A90-210030-04, B90-220030-04 and B90-610030-06/C90-610030-06, respectively) with a D-Link DSL router. Although actual screen shots vary throughout the DLink line, the instructions below are applicable to all models. Important Note: These procedures and pictures are based on the most recent firmware for the Westell. Other Westell firmware menus and screenshots are slightly different but the bridge options and functions are still available. It is highly recommended that you click here and update your Westell firmware.

This FAQ has 3 Major sections:
Section 1 - Overview
Section 2 - Westell modem configuration
Section 3 - D-Link router configuration information
Section 4 - Connections and power up

Section 1 - Overview
bred.gifImportant Note: Due to some known operational issues it is VERY important that you have the latest firmware on your D-Link router. Please go to the D-Link Support Site for firmware updates.
bred.gif The best configuration for networking a router with the Westell is to set the Westell to "Bridged Ethernet" mode and allow the router to do the routing and DHCP functions. The Westell is also a router with full DHCP functions and may not function correctly when connected directly to another router. Not changing the modem to Bridged Ethernet will result in double NAT'ing, increased latency, possible IP conflicts, or possibly a network that doesn't work at all.
bred.gif Before proceeding both the modem and router should be set to default. Despite what the help desk tech tells you, resetting the Westell does not put it into Bridged Mode.
bred.gif The BellSouth Installation CD and Connection Manager are not required to use this configuration.
bred.gif Since BellSouth assigns static WAN IPs via your username the configurations shown are applicable to both dynamic and single static IP customers. Select dynamic PPPoE regardless of your setup.
bred.gif You must connect the Westell directly to the computer's NIC to make the necessary changes before you connect the router, because you will be unable to access the modem interface after you connect the router. The reason is that the modem interface is 192.168.1.254 which is a local IP. By default, most routers do not have the capability to route a local IP out of their WAN port (where your Westell is connected). Additionally, they may be on completely different subnets. After you have made the changes to the Westell you can then connect the router and configure it for use with FastAccess. There are several alternatives around this problem. One method involves extra equipment (second NIC and a hub) and major configuration changes. The second method requires you to utilize the router as a simple switch and use the Westell's PPPoE and DHCP functions. Click here for more information.
bred.gif If you encounter any problems simply reset the Westell, connect it directly to your NIC, restart your computer, log into the Westell interface, and start over again.
bred.gif More information about the Westell is available here.

Section 2 - Westell Configuration
bred.gifStep 1
Verify that your NIC card is set to "Obtain IP Address Automatically". Completely power down the Westell and the computer(s). Power up the modem and press the reset button on the back of the modem. After the modem has fully initialized connect the Westell to the NIC and then power up the computer.

bred.gifStep 2
Open a browser session and enter 192.168.1.254 in the URL address field to access the Westell interface. If you are unable to access the interface make sure your NIC is set to "Obtain an IP address automatically". This may require you to reboot the computer (or release/renew) to obtain a proper IP.

bred.gifStep 3
Click on Broadband DSL Line from the top menu. Click on Configure Connection from the right menu. Select "Bridged Ethernet" from the Protocol pull down. Click on Save and restart the connection at the bottom. This will automatically restart the modem and the interface will return after the changes are saved. Note: functions like NAT, DHCP, IP Passthrough, and username and password will be disabled or irrelevant and can not be selected. After the modem has restarted, power down both the computer and the modem then physically disconnect the Westell.

Section 3 - D-Link Router Information
bred.gifStep 4
After the PC is powered down connect one of the router LAN ports to the computer NIC and power up the router and then the computer.

bred.gifStep 5
Use the following steps to configure your D-Link DI-604 Router. Important Note: You must use the username@bellsouth.net format for your username. If you do not add "@bellsouth.net" after your username you will be unable to connect to the internet.
image92920.gif
image92921.gif
image92922.gif

Section 4 - Connections and Power Up
bred.gifStep 6
Power everything down and physically connect the Westell, the router, and any computer(s).

image78985.gif

bred.gifStep 7
Power up the network equipment in this order:
•Westell Modem (wait till the Ready light is a steady green)
•D-Link Router
•Computer(s)
Open a browser session and go surfing!

bred.gifAdditional Imformation
•You should check your tweak settings to optimize your new network. Reminder: If you are required to change your MTU, make sure that it is identical on all equipment (PCs and routers) in the network. For more information about changing MTU on a D-Link please click here.
•The 6100 has an "Internet" light that is green whenever there is an active PPPoE session initiated by the Westell. Since you are using the DLink to establish the PPPoE session the light will stay off. This is normal.

Dell 4700 Computer Integrated NIC Problem


Check for the pins inside the integrated NIC to check if the pins are bent / disfigured. Does not look like the additional card is making any different, looks more like a moving NIC cable is makin the difference.

Lemme know if this helped!

DRIVER UPGRADE


There is no software update for the network adapter on the Sony site. There are other updates.

There is a recommendation against Vista on tis unit on their site.

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVW30#

Is your question about purchasing a different network card for that unit? If so what attributes of you other hardware will the new network adapter need to be an upgrade over the current adapter?
