Cannot get my laptop to recognise my wireless adapter

Recently after a year of use my laptop will not connect to the wireless internet. I have updated my drivers, tried rolling them back, looked in my bios configuration, etc. etc. My computer does not recognize the wireless adapter and I cannot figure out why. The wireless adapter does not appear int eh device manager. I appreciate any possible solutions.

    This is the same issue that I have. This laptop is literally 1year and 3 months old, just 3 months past warranty and the wireless card is no longer recognized. (the light stays a constant orange) I have updated the BIOS and drivers, I have even reformatted the system and brought it back to factory state. Tech support was no help and refused to do anything until I purchased an extended warranty from them. This is the last HP/Compaq product that I will ever buy.

I used to slave over this exact laptop for days trying to fix the same wireless issue over and over and over again. It's very rarely the wireless adapter. More often than not, your motherboard is bad. Your best bet, should you have an extended warranty on the POS, is to contact HP. The should ship you a box and everything, you send it in, they fix, etc. HOWEVER, if you DO NOT still have a warranty on it, throw it in the trash. Even if you tried to call them about it, you would not get too far, and they would try to charge you a whopping $390 for the MB. Even if you tell them it is a wireless issue, you are looking to spend $340 (they **** rape you).

I am currently in the same boat. If you don't have the money to fix the computer, try turning it on for about an hour or so and letting it warm up. After it is a little warm, restart it over and over again, eventually the wireless should be detected. You just can't shut the darn thing off...ever again.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Wireless internet card for DELL C600 - ?


personally i would go for a usb wireless adapter as many people have driver problems with the pcmcia slot and are unable to get it to recognise the card, whereas usb is much simpler to use. All the usb type adapters are much the same they dont have to be the same make as your router, but buy the same transfer speed type, for example if you have a 108MBPS router buy the compatible 108 MBPS adapter as a 54MBPS adapter will reduce the transfer speed capabilty, not to be confused with your connection speed.
