    i did everything until number 4. when i used the windows connector, it said no wireless networks in range. when i used intel, it said no wireless adapters availbale in the system. the wireless switch also wont turn on. the orange light isnt blinking. it used to work before. :( why is that?

  • kyut_khaye May 25, 2009

    it isnt possible that there are no signals sent by the router wince my brother can access the network and we're in the same house. also, the wireless adapter is shown in the device manager. can you check it for me? my laptop is an acer aspire 5572NWXCi :)

First u need to make sure ur adapter is installed correctly.
1. Click on Start-->Run-->Type in "devmgmt.msc"
which will open device manager.
Under device manager , u should find network adapters, make sure ur adapter is listed under it without any yellow exclamation mark or red cross which would mean that the drivers are not installed correctly or the adapter is disabled. In this case u need to reinstall the drivers via the CD.
2. Secondly u need to goto start-->run-->type in "msconfig"
which will open the system configuration window. Now under the "startup" TAB. Find the service for ur wireless card and disable it by unchecking it and then apply the settings and OK.
Reboot computer once
3. After reboot, goto start-->run-->type in "services.msc"
It will open the services windows . Find an option for wireless zero configuration . Rt click on it and start it.
4. Goto start-->run-->type in "ncpa.cpl"
It will open network connections window.
Rt click on Wireless network conection and enable it .
If it is already enabled , then rt click on it again and click on "View available wireless connections"
It will give u a list of all the wireless connections available in ur area.
Click on the one which is ur connection and then click on connect.
It might ask u for a wireless key if it is a secure connection. Enter the key and it should all work fine.

    if it says " No wireless network in range " the it means that either there are no wireless signals sent by ur router.

    OR

    It means that the signals are all fine and it is a problem with ur system which is not picking any signals.

    This might be due the wireless switch or key not turning on on the laptop or a faulty wireless adapter.

    But if the wireless adapter is shown fine on the device manager , it means that the wireless adapter is working fine.

    Then it is definte problem with the wireless switch not on.

    U need to make sure that wireless jey or switch in on .

    If u are not sure how turn it on then u might need to get in touch with the technical support for ur laptop or tell me the model number, i will chek it for u.

Hello
Re-installation of drivers is recommended for detection of network adapter, if you dont have updated drivers, then download from ACER web site.

Make sure the wireles button is turned on if it is a notebook.
Make sure the drivers are installed and upto date.
Make sure the router is turmed on and the wireless light should be on. (install the router if u had received any cd along with the wireless router.
if still your wireless connection is not detected simply remove all the wireless profiles on the. restart the PC and the router. once it is started the the network should be detected.

Is the radio turned off? There should be a button or Fn button combination that allows you to turn your radio on and off. Try that.

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista


when you say the radio button does not light up, are you refering to the light on the front of the notebook?, if so you can turn the wireless on and off by the little slider switch next to the light.
