Wireless not picked up by windows

I have a packard bell easynote r4360.
this model comes complete with built in wireless, unfortunatly, after i had to re-instal xp , when it started up it was not recognising the wireless card, i"ve  checked on the device manager and the wireless is not showing under other devices. the ethernet controller is showing up with a yellow ! but when the pc is connected to the router it works fine. any ideas on how to find my wireless ?
if it makes any difference i"m running xp with service pack 2. and its connecting to the web through a wireless router.(when its running wireless that is ) I"ve also been to the site for the latest drivers.

Re: wireless not picked up by windows

The solution will probably be to remove your wireless card and re-install it, this has worked for me with my HP F577CL notebook. Good Luck!

Re: wireless not picked up by windows

Another reason your network may not be receiving a sgnal also could be that the wirless zero is turned off. By going to start control panel then to performance and maintainence and then to administrative tools. There you will see services. if you double click onto that it will open another box for you. Scroll down to the Wireless Zero application making sure the setting is on automatic and then start or restart. That may help

Re: wireless not picked up by windows

You have the answer in your question.Your wireless modem is connected to the ethernet controller.Hence if you install the driver for your ethernet card only then your wireless will be shown.If you want the driver for your ethernet card then post the company and model number...

The problem may come from wrong driver installed.
Is your OS genuine? If yes the problem is not from the from OS.
iF NO, Reinstall your Os using XP Service pack 3 and get all driver installed.
If there are more problem on this the hard ware has to be checked.
You are welcome.

Mislaid plug to my Packard Bell Laptop Windows 98. Where would I purchase a new one or second hand one.

Would have to know the model, but you might check your local thrift shops, especially the larger ones.

Here in Texas, several cities have a Salvation Army computer store that gets all the computer donations, great place to find stuff like that at a fair price.

Otherwise, you can get a 'universal' power supply that comes with various 'tips' that also set the right voltage for the laptop in question. Generally, you can find them for around 90 bucks, but they can often be found on sale for less...sometimes much less.

I have an packard bell easynote ARGS1 (MS serie) and I installed windows7 on it.. Now, I can't find drivers Can you help? grts


I have had this same problem, and even after phoning the Support line I got nowhere, however you can use System Rescue Cd which you can download here :-

this has a Hardware Lister and you can get the names of the pieces of hardware you need drivers for. I am still in the process of doing this, but so far it seems I only really need the Video, Sound and WiFi drivers, the Windows 7 default for the rest seem ok.

My Wifi adapter is a Ralink RT2561, the drivers for which can be found here:-

both the sound and video drivers appear to be ATI, so I am going to try this :-

hopefully it will detect and install drivers as necessary. I know most of these drivers will probably be for XP, but having previously installed Windows 7 on a desktop PC I know they generally work fine for Windows 7.

Hope that has helped.

Wireless not recognising wireless router

Are you using Windows XP? If so, pls make sure that the Wireless Zero config utility is enabled:

Start>Settings>control panel>administrative tools>services>highlight 'wireless zero configuration utility>click 'start the service'.

Then you will need to go back and open the page for network connections, view available wireless networks, click on advanced, check box 'Use windows to configure my wireless connection', click ok.

After this, do you see any networks in that screen?
