Gateway M305 Internet Connection


The Gateway m305 has 3 WiFi hardware options, 2 Broadcom and 1 ActionTec. I have found at times that the wireless adaptor will have its own control and configure software running and it will not allow windows to manage it. If this is so you can manage the connection with the manufactures software or find the option in network connections in the properties of the wireless adaptor to allow windows to manage it. Either way should allow you to connect but I prefer to use windows management. I hope this is of some help. Good Luck
