RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, ON REBOOT, CLICK F10 WHEN YOUR CHANGE BOOT OPTIONS SCREEN COMES UP. YOU MUST PRESS F10 QUICKLY OR IT WILL LOAD WINDOWS AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN. ONCE YOU GET INTO THE BIOS SETUP UTILITY GO TO SYSTEM CONFIGURATION, SCROLL DOWN TO BOOT OPTIONS CLICK ENTER. GO DOWN TO INTERNAL NETWORK ADAPTER BOOT AND ENABLE IT. THEN GO TO SAVE AND EXIT. AFTER YOU RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, CHECK IF THE WIRELESS IS WORKING. IF LATER IT FAILS AGAIN, GO BACK INTO THE BIOS SETUP, IF THE ADAPTER IS STILL ENABLED, DO A DIAGNOSTIC TEST FROM THE BIOS UTILITY. IT WILL DO A QUICK TEST (IT IS FAST) THEN IT WILL DO A COMPREHENSIVE TEST, THIS WILL TAKE AWHILE UNTIL IT FINDS THE PROBLEM. BE PATIENT IT WILL FIX IT!!! THE COMPUTER SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY SHUTDOWN WHEN IT FINISHES. WHEN YOU TRY TO TURN YOUR COMPUTER BACK ON, IT MAY NOT COME ON THE 1ST TIME, THIS IS OK TOO. JUST KEEP PRESSING AND HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON UNTIL IT COMES ON AND STAYS ON. NOW WHEN YOUR COMPUTER LOADS WINDOWS YOU WILL SEE YOUR WIRELESS ADAPTER IS WORKING.

Adaptor won't recognize wpa2 network


As per its user manual (p 2-1)
it only supports WPA, not WPA2

So either reduce the wireless network security to WPA/PSK, or get another adapter that supports WPA2

Or, If it's a version 2 in hardware, you could download the latest driver V2 that added the WPA2 support

Good luck

Just bought an open box LG LED 42 inch TV. I got a couple questions. 1. What is the recommended way of cleaning the screen? 2. How do I get it to recognize my wifi? 3. Please provide me a link to an...


Hi Rob,
Here's the link to the product support webpage for your TV. The full manual can be downloaded here (Click "Support," and the link is under "Documents" on the right side of the screen.)

http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/televisions/LG-led-tv-42LE5400.jsp

From the manual, here's what it says about cleaning:

thomascha103_1.jpg And in order for the TV to recognize your wifi, you'll need to plug in a wireless network adaptor to one of the USB ports. (network adaptor sold separately.) Follow these instructions to establish a wifi connection, and then follow the on-screen instructions for wifi/network settings. Or for details on how to adjust your wifi/network settings, see pages 58 and 59 of the manual.


thomascha103_2.jpg That's kind of hard to read, but it says.
"The LG Wireless LAN for Broadband/DLNA Adaptor, which is sold separately, allows the TV to connect to a woreless lan network.
The network configuration and connection method may vary depending on the equipment in use and the network environment. Refer to the setup instructions supplied with yur access point or wireless router for detailed connection steps and network settings.
1. How to connect
Connect the "LG Wireless LAN for Broadband/DLNA Adaptor (sold separately) to the USB IN 1 or 2 port on the TV.
2. How to use
Select "Network Setting" in the NETWORK menu
After connecting, you can use the NETCAST menu"

Best of luck!

Open Device Manager and expand "Network Adaptors"
Check to make sure you have a wireless adaptor shown.
If no wireless adaptor is shown I would suggest you contact Dell Support. When posting for computer assistance it always helps to say what your Operating System is.
Sometimes Windows 10 for example will not recognise hardware designed for earlier OS.

Here's what you can do since this is a USB wireless adapter, first connect the USB adapter on a different USB port on the computer better if you connect it on the back USB port of the computer tower and check if the computer will recognize it and if its recognize you can already continue with the software installation , but if not you can restart first the computer and check if the adapter will be recognized if still not the next thing to do here just to know if the adapter is good or bad is to connect it on a different computer and just to check if it will be recognized once its connected to a USB port , because a device should be automatically will be recognized by a computer once you connect it so if its still not recognized by a different computer adapter is bad...

Hi, did you provide the network key/password when you setup the wireless conection on your computer? Is it detecting your wireless router (you should see your SSID or network name) when you click on your wireless icon (in the taskbar) and chose "show wireless connections". If you can acess to your router via it's configuration page(type the router's default IP address in your browser) you can go check the settings and change the key/passphrase if you dont remember it. If all of this is not working, you can also start from stratch. Reset the router to factory settings (check your manual) then reconfigure it the way you want, put the new infos in your wireless network connections properties and try again. let me know with more specific details if you still cant do it

MN520 adaptor will not see my new Netgear WGR614 wireless router


The only protocol your older wireless adapter will connect to is 802.11b. I would say you will need to get another wireless adapter for the older computer. I would look at your router specification to see if it supports 802.11b, I am thinking it probably doesn't and that is why it cannot see the network. I will send a link to your cards specifications.
