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.

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...

Re: Wireless adapter in Acer 5610-4610 is gone suddenly

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 Wireless says non operational. It is a Intel pro/wireless 3945ABG Network Adapter. It is still installed but I do not show any kind of network connection.


The first thing that I would advise you to do is,

Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,

Then go to "scan for hardware changes",

This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).

After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.

It should connect like that.

(In case you dont know how to uninstall the Adapter, Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties, Device Manager, then select the Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall.)

Hope this helps.

What kind of wireless adapter is your lap top using? You can find this in your device manager - Right click My Computer > click Manage > then press Device Manager to check what adapter is listed

Also, try to use a USB wirless adapter to rule out an issue with your Wireless Router.

Upate to the newest wireless driver Change the channel on router wireless settings You can also try to update the firmware on your Router Let me know. Thanks.
