Wireless adapter in Acer 5610-4610 is gone suddenly

Wireless adapter Intel 3945ABG disappeared after two days not using computer. No changes of software or movement of computer from table. Four month old Aspire 5610-4610 is fine otherwise. Tried to reinstall adapter in Device Manager or in Add Hardware in Vista Home Premium. Did that but Windows couldn't load driver. Downloaded the Vista wireless 5610 driver from Acer but upon attempted install it said it was for the 2910ABG wireless and did not find device and install failed. Sent email to Acer but no reply yet.

    I am having the same problem with my HP Pavillion since 2 weeks. Sent it in to HP...they returned it saying it was fixed...plugged it in and it was not fixed.... I am beginning to think it is a Microsoft malfunction and not the computer manufacturers as I have seen threads from Acer, HP, Viao, and other users on the web. But no solutions......

    Wireless just stopped working, and no driver download or device-manager tweaks will get it working again. Totally puzzled.

Was a faulty connection of the card to the slot. Guy at the repair point/store where I bought it did a reseat of card and it is fine.
Too bad I didn't try that first before I destroyed all I had set up on hard disk for 5 months...

Few ideas here, but obviously these are tricky questions.

Uninstall all software related to the wireless NIC, and then uninstall the hardware in device manager. Shut the machine down. Turn the machine over and remove all the little doors and look to see if the wireless NIC is an add-in card you can access. If it is, remove the retaining screw and remove it. Reboot machine, let it boot up, log in, and then shut down again. Reinstall the wireless card and close everything up again. When you reboot, you *should* get the new hardware found message, if you do, install the with the latest drivers and then reboot, and then check to see if the device is working properly in device manager (no warning messages). If it does not recognize the hardware, check in device manager if it has somehow put it on the unknown device list. If it has, try installing the latest drivers manually for the device by using properties tabs on unknown device in device manager.

If the problem is that the devices won't recognise and install their own drivers, you have a different problem which HP or whomever should solve.

Note, too, that if the laptop included custom control software for wireless connectivity (Intel, I am looking in your direction), the card may not be recognized without it, so install that software again, too.

Hope this helps...

My intel wireless adapter 3945ABG is not working... i cannot find it in device menu of my computer.


1. go into the "remove programs list " and uninstall the software and reinstall accordingt the installation disk instructions set.
This should restore you device in the "device manager" and work properly.
Note: if you have done a "defragmentation of your hard drive in a while do this before installing the software of you device.
I hope this helps. Have great day!

You should have only 1 wireless adapter, the other 1 is the ethernet adapter. If you experience low signal strength even after updating the drivers, you need to customize wireless settings on the router.
You need to change the wireless mode to "802.11b and 802.11g" or "802.11g", whatever you have in your router. If this is the same with all wireless networks, wherever you go, then its an issue with the adapter, you should get a replacement.

Lost signal


Saltypup77:
check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.

Try going to the usb and the wireless adapter in device manager, properties. And make sure that the computer does not shut them off to save power.
Please let me know how you make out.
thanks

Compatibility between linksys WRT54G Router and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver


from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time. This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do. If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability. Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems. Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.
