Abit wireless adapter unable to locate wireless network

I have a Abit (PCI Express) wireless adapter installed in a computer running Windows Vista. It seems to work perfectly every other start up. That is...first start up it detects the network and connects to the internet. Shut down or reboot, no network detection at all. I am able to find the adapter in my devices list and it says its working but all attempts at making it connect meet with failure. Reboot -- works perfectly. Reboot -- no network. Over and over. Any Ideas?

Windows 7 should automatically install device drivers for the Audio, Video and Network, If you are unable to find/download a device driver that works on your computer and your computer is connected to the Internet then - 1. Remove the driver that isn't working if it was installed.
2. Set Win-7 "Windows Device Installation" to 'AUTO'
3. Windows will automatically search the internet for the driver.

Need: PCI Simple Communications driver for Abit LG-95C Motherboard on Vista 32bit with Dell AIO922 all-in-one


Hmmm, since Abit went out of business March 2009, and the website shut down February 28, 2012, let's go to Intel Support for the Intel 945GC chipset drivers,

http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect/

Check your system for the latest updates

When finished if Not asked to restart your computer, do so.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit


The motherboard chipset for your motherboard type, is a Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip.

(Does not apply to motherboard that support Intel Core i3, i5, i7, or i9 )

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Motherboard_diagram.svg&page=1

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI-Express are High-speed graphics.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Integrated graphics is Not high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.
Anything connected to the;
1) PCI bus
2) IDE bus
3) SATA bus
4) USB bus
5) Ethernet bus
6) Audio (Sound)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_bus

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/dell-922

REMEMBER!
Drivers and software are installed F-I-R-S-T, then the All-In-One's USB cable is plugged into the computer, and turned on.

Plugging the USB cable into the computer, and turning the printer on BEFORE installing the software/drivers, will result in a driver conflict.

What Wireless card to buy


A version that is Wireless N.

You can install a Wireless N adapter card in any available (Open)
white PCI slot, or use a Wireless N adapter that plugs into any available USB port.

1) Dell Support > Studio XPS 8100 Desktop PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/studio8100/en/sm/index.htm

I would like you to click on - Technical Overview

Now on System Board Components

The number 23 points to the white PCI slot.
The numbers 24 and 26 point to a PCI-Express x1 slot.

You can buy a Wireless N adapter card to fit either a PCI slot, or a PCI-Express x1 slot.

{NOTE* Number 27 points to a PCI-Express x16 slot.
This = NO.
This expansion slot is used for a graphics card, ONLY }

Examples of a Wireless N adapter card for a PCI slot, and a PCI-Express x1 slot,

A) PCI: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4389486&CatId=2701

B) PCI-Express x1:

C) USB:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5079829&CatId=2688

Why use anything but a USB Wireless N adapter?
I don't know. They allow me to toot the whistle, but not drive the train.

Need Windows 7 driver


http://www.startech.com/Networking-IO/Adapter-Cards/PCI-Express-10-100-Dual-Profile-Ethernet-Card~PEX100S

download the drivers, use the one that is for windows vista, instead of running the driver installer that comes with the it go to the folder that called WINVISTA then go to a folder called 32 if using 32-bits or 64 if using 64 bits OS, inside that folder you will find 3 files extract then to a place you can remember. then go to control panel, device manager, look for the device that has a yellow icon click on it, click on update drivers, click on browser my computer for driver software, click browse, search for the place where you have extracted the drivers from before select the folder containing the drivers, click next and wait until windows installs the drivers.

usually a 85% of the windows vista drivers will work in windows 7.

I purchased an HP A4327C desktop computer and wanted to convert it to wireless. I purchased a Level One11g Wireless PCI card and the card will not fit into the slot inside of the computer. Is it the wrong...


HI,
On your computers motherboard, you have three slots
  • PCI slot
  • 1 PCI express slot 16
  • 2 PCI express slot 1
You would require a PCI express 1 ex wireless card for the system

Thanks

Hello mccree08,

The installed network adapters can be viewed in the windows device manager which can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)

•In the Control Panel, Select Device Manager

•In Device Manager, Select 'Network Adapters'

The netgear wpn 511 adapter will appear there if it is correctly installed.

Abit wlp-01 suddenly won't find wireless network


With other adapters, I have needed to run a registry cleaner WinASO or RegistryFirstAid to clean out the unused entries so they could be reinstalled properly. Similar to removing some famous brands of Anitvirus that do not completely remove themselves.

The DWL-G510 doesn't start


If you have formated all your drives you will have no official motherboard drivers for your pci bridge, sound driver, onboard lan or video, usb or agp slots, only the generic windows drivers which arent always reliable, so check you motherboard model and then go to the manufacturer web site and download the correct drivers. All the work you have done was unnecassry unfortunately, unless it gave you major system faults, the fault may have been motherboard drivers, i also recommend removing the pci card and before installing the board drivers and using a different pci slot.
