Check in device manager..start>right click my computer>properties>hardware device manager..click on the "+" if there is a yellow, red, or black mark by the netword adapter then you can right click on it and reinstall the driver from there...
good luck..

I reinstalled Vista Home Premium on my wife's Gateway laptop, but can't connect wirelessly to the router. Windows can't find the adapter (it's built in).


As you re-installed vista, you probably need to load the drivers , sometimes these are supplied as a seperate CD or you can go onto the manufacturers website and download onto a working PC and then using USB thumbdrive or write to a CD copy to the faulty machine
as we do not know the exact model i can only direct you to the support site http://support.gateway.com/support/default.aspx if you put your serial number into this site - should show you all the drivers required

Replace the Vista Home Premium with XP on ASPIRE M1202


Your best option is to upgrade to Windows 7. It is free for (I believe all) Vista users, and you can run programs in XP compatibility mode.

Unable to use my HSPA USB2 modem with Vista Home Premium SP1, on my laptop


There is a VERY good chance that your USB HSPA Modem is not compatible/complient with Microsoft Vista. There are very few older parts on the market that are compatible.

You can also go to the manufacture web site of the HSPS modem and see if there are any Vista Drivers. If not, then you are out of luck.
