PC wont recognise SMC Wireless adapter!

Hi

i bought a new Vista32 HP Pavilion a6260d home pc and i needed to buy an adapter for wireless internet. i bought a SMC ez connect g 802.11g wireless USB2.0 (SMCWUSB-G) Adapter and installed it.

after installation i opened the program to setup the connection.

at the top of window, it should say the name of my wireless adapter, instead it says wireless card not found even though its already plugged in the USB port.

i dont know how to fix this. ive tried re-installing it already.
Right now im using a wire for internet but need wireless.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz 2.33GHz.

Can't enable wireless service


Unfortunately HP laptops have a history of wireless cards frying. If your machine is still relatively new (1-2 years old), you can talk to HP to have it repaired by them. Otherwise the best option is to buy a USB wireless adapter from Best Buy or Newegg.

Can the HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop use a wireless router?


Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router. Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.

I hava a hp 13" laptop that wont show wireless option in the internet properties. I have a wireless Lan Mini PCI card, but it is not being detected. Is there away to re enable the wireless?


Hi. Please check first if your computer was able to detect the device. You can look for this device in control panel then click system then click device manager. Your wireless adapter should be present under network adapters. f computer was able to detect the wireless adapter. Try to turn off/on the wireless switch. Usually, wireless switch is located infront of the laptop or on the side. You can also try pressing Fn + F5 key to disable/enable wireless network card.

How do i set up wireless internet on my hp pavillion a330n desktop? Do i need a wireless card or is it built in? and where do i put the wireless card if i need one?


Hello,

Yes you need a wireless adapter.

Solution one : Get PCI wireless adapter which you will insert in an empty PCI slot inside your computer.

Solution 2. Buy a USB wireless adapter, which you plug in a USB port.
However, if my memory serves me right, that particular HP pavillion is 5 or 6 years old, and it does support USB 2.0, just USB 1.1

My advice to you is to buy a USB 2.0 PCI card to be installed in an empty PCI slot )or in the one occupied by the firewire )if not needed). This card will provide 4 or 5 USB 2.0 adapters. Then buy a USB wireless adapter, which you will be able to use with other computers.

Hope It helps.
Rate this solution if it helps you.

Cant connect my SMC to other home computer and have a netgear router, how do i connect my smc adapter


Most hardware like an Network Adaptor you install the software CD 1st. Then plug in the hardware.

Then if you configured wireless (wifi, 802.11) settings on your SMC - you should fine the network NAME when you try to connect. You will be asked for the security key for WEP or WPA or WPA2 that you used in the SMC.

SMC should... then assign IP Settings automatically. If the SMC has Internet, you should have Internet.
