Problem with installing driver for internal wireless adapter

I installed Vista Home Basic on my friend's laptop and cannot get the wlan driver to install. It is the original internal hardware. Is there a patch that I need, or is ther anything that I can do to get the driver to install?

    did you install Vista on a computer that was designed for XP? If so, you'll need a new driver for the ethernet adapter. Or did I read your question wrong?

1.Definitely you can get your drivers free.
just go to ur motherboard manufacturing site, click on download section click on drivers, enter mother board number and download the drivers free.
2. If you don't know the motherboard drivers name and exact number then connect to internet, uninstall all the old video and audio drivers. then when pop up window says that new hard driver is found then click it and it will automatically install drivers from net

3. If you want to know about your motherboard drivers, then go to desktop
a. right click on my_computer,

b.then select properties, in properties tab click on the HARDWARE tab,

c.then click on the device manager tab, then select and expand the drivers like sound or video which you want to know.

d. right click on the selected sound or display drivers and select its properties.

e. select driver tab and the driver name and version will be before you

Linksys WUSB54GC on Windows 2000...no worky


Hi,

Did you install the Linksys WLAN monitor to manage the wireless settings? If not, I'm afraid that you won't be able to configure the wireless settings on your 2000 computer without the Linksys WLAN monitor installed.

Sounds like the problem may be related to the power management of the internal ethernet card.

You need to check these settings in the Acer ePower Management software (usually installed with the laptop).
E.g. If you the laptop is not charging then you will not be able to see or change any settings on the internal ethernet card.

If you do not have the Acer ePower Manager installed then you can download it here;

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista


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 driver???


Check in the control panel and make sure that the wireless adapter is not exclamated out. I would delete the adapter in device manager and restart the unit. Also make sure that the wireless is turned on. Basic but it may help.

Wireless driver problem


I am currently using Linux on a Compaq C500 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. Sounds like your wireless adapter is on of the ones that uses the b43 module like mine.

Aside from using the correct module, you also need a firmware image. Instructions can be found at: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

Hope this helps and good luck with Linux! Once you fully switch to Linux you'll never go back to crappy M$ products!

Download the 8187b drivers from Realtek's site. You then need to go in and edit the .inf file to read like this:

;;****************************************************************************
;; IDs for 98SE/ME/2K/XP
;;****************************************************************************
[Realtek]
%RTL8187B.DeviceDesc% = RTL8187B.ndi, USB\VID_0BDA&PID_8197&REV_0200
%RTL8187B.DeviceDesc% = RTL8187B.ndi, USB\VID_0BDA&PID_8189&REV_0200

After the edit, install as usual from the device manager.
