In Windows, you go to the device manage (right click My Computer and select Device Manager from left panel) click on the triangle just left of "Network adapters" and you will see the network adapter that is physically installed in your computer. If there is a yellow exclamation mark on the icon, then there is a problem with the driver or the network controller is not functioning as expected.

What is network adapter mean


A network adaptor is an interface device that allows your PC to communicate with other computers and the internet. There are wireless and wired adaptors.

Wireless adaptors usually connect your PC to the network through a wireless router and modem. Wired adaptors (also known as ethernet adaptors) connect your PC to another computer, a router or a modem using a cable.

I'm trying to set up a new wireless router but i get a messagw that says thw network adapter is not working


Open the Device Manager and check if the wireless device is listed under the "Network Adaptor".

You may also check in the "System Information" window for all the network adaptors installed and functional in the Computer.

Follow the steps given below to access the "System Information" window:

(i) Please press the Windows key on the Keyboard and then press the "R" key while holding down the Windows key to open the Run dialog box.

(ii) Then, please type "msinfo32" in the Run dialog box and click OK to open the System Information window.

(iii) In the left pane, click on the plus sign next to the Components then on the Network adaptors. This will display all the installed and functional network adaptors in the right pane. Check if wireless adaptor is listed.


If the wireless adaptor is not listed at any of the places then you may try restarting the Computer and reinstalling the wireless driver.

If the Computer still shows the message then the issue may be with the wireless adaptor.

Press the Windows key on the Keyboard and then press the "R" key while holding down the Windows key to open the Run dialog box.
Then, type "msinfo32" in the Run dialog box and click OK to open the System Information window.
In the left pane, click on the plus sign next to the Components then click on the plus sign next to the Network.
Under the Network, click on the Adaptor to view the information regarding all the network adaptors functional in the Computer.

You can view the Network adaptor's information on the right pane. On the right pane, check whether the wireless adaptor is listed or not.

Furthermore, you can check in the Device manager under the "Network Adaptor" category whether the wireless adaptor is listed.

If the wireless adaptor is not listed in either of the windows then the issue is hardware related and service will be required.

Wireless Network?


The modern laptop and Wii will be no problem. Windows 98 will work but it can be much trickier to set up.

Parts needed
1 x Wireless Router - You can pick up a 2WIRE Router from around £20 on eBay
3 x Wireless LAN Network Adaptors - Around £20 each.

Firstly, the Router. This bit connects to your telephone line and broadcasts your broadband signal by radio and allows several computers to use one service. When you buy a router make sure it includes installation software. You can install routers without, but it's a whole lot easier if you have it.

Next you need to be able to receive the broadband radio signal on your computers and Wii.To receive the signal you need Wireless LAN Network Adaptors on each device. Network Adaptors also have software, which allows you to install the drivers needed.

Your laptop may already have a wireless adaptor built in.
You can check this by clicking
Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Communications\Network Connections
Then see if a Wireless adaptor is present. If it isn't, you can install one inside the laptop by buying a laptop wireless network card. Easier, is to buy a USB Wireless LAN Network Adaptor which just plugs in to a USB socket on the laptop.

Look for LAN Network adaptors that are suitable for the Wii and a separate one suitable for Windows 98. Most will be ok for the laptop.

Install the router first. just do what the software tells you, then install the LAN adaptor drivers on each device you want networked.

Finally, make sure you secure your router signal. That stops the guy next door using your network and offers some security from hackers. Your router will include a firewall and you can set up a key code that your adaptors will need before they can connect. Unless the guy next door has the key, he won't be able to use
your network and play your MP3s...hoorah!
Follow the instructions given in the software to set up a WPA or WEP security key.

Great fun, you'll love it if you can get it all going.
