I have an ACER travelmate i am unable to find the LAN after installing the drivers also

If a device doesn't show in device manager, look for it as a "hidden device". These devices usually are detected by the OS, but are not functioning.
Generally, I've found that there is a hardware fault if the typical scenario of uninstalling the driver & reinstalling doesn't work. That's when you see your hardware end up under hidden devices. You'll likely need to replace that hardware. For dead LAN ports on laptops, they do make a USB-to-LAN adapter.
Open device manager>and check the menu bar items>find "other options">show hidden devices. It's usually clustered with the other "views" of showing by IRQ, etc.

Lan card not detected

Typically if the card is not detected it might be a fault in the card. Have you tried to connect the card to another computer to see?
In any case LAN cards should by automatically detected with no problems.

XP Cannot detect Intex RTL 8139D LAN card

This is a realtek based card so youe may want to try these drivers

Available Here

Make sure you get the ones for your operating system

extract them to a directory that you can remember and find easily.

eg. c:\mynic

Then select the card from your hardware list and tell it to update drivers. Dont let it wander the internet tell it directly where to find them.
It should then either do it for you with no fuss or offer you a choice of hardware and driver versions.
You would select the latest one and continue.

Hope this helps out

Wirless adaptor only sporadically working

Do you know for sure that the usb port is working properly? Plug in a flash drive or a mouse and see if it's detected. If not, it's the usb port. Try another port. If no usb ports work, post a comment and I'll give you some things to check.

If the usb port works:

Unplug the nic, go to device manager and expand network adapters. Plug in the usb nic. If it doesn't show up in device manager, or if no new hardware is detected, then it's probably dead. Plug it into another pc to confirm.

Hope this helps!

LAN internet connection problem in COMPAQ V 3000 notebook

Just connect the lan cable from the modem port saying "DataIn" to your laptop, select Automaticaly detect IP setting and let it assign via DHCP. Once it gains the ip (usually 3-4 minutes) use any java enabled browser (like ie,mozilla firefox) and go to any site it will automatically redirect you to Tata Indicom login terminal and fill in the required blanks and you are connected to the internet.

Power outage blew out adaptor?

You can try first to connect the adapter on a different USB port and check if it will be detected if not detected if possible try to connect it on a different computer and hopefully it will be detected but if still no adapter is already dead and needs a replacement and linksys has a 3 year warranty for this one so if its under warranty have it replace, you can contact Linksys via this number 8003267114...

3com usb bluetooth adaptor wont work at all

The Bluetooth adapter should be able to be used with Win XP's own drivers, try uninstalling the drivers that you got with the adapter and dis connect it. Re-connect your adapter back in and right click on an item you want to send via bluetooth and it will say 'send to bluetooth device'. Please note this will only work with Win XP SP2 not SP1
