    Im not sure what you mean by wireless network dialog. If I am in network connections I only see the local area connection. Also, the wireless indicator light will not light up now. Sorry for the bother but I really appreciate the help

The wireless adapter's front end is running the show, this is why the
Windows Wireless does not work.

You can return control to Windows by selecting the wireless network dialog,
and choosing Advanced, then check the box that says to let Windows control
the show. This is at the top of the Advanced dialog box.

I assume you have loaded the driver for your wireless adapter. You have to
load this first.

If the wireless is already installed -- and I assume it is -- then you have
to install the driver, then reboot the machine so the adapter is found on
boot up. You need the CD for the adapter, NOT the software for the router.
The adapter is giving you trouble, not the router.

If the wireless adapter worked at one time, but does not work now which is your case, then you
have to choose the Repair option from the Network Setup screen. Finally, you
might need to turn the router off for 20-ish seconds then turn it back on.
If this fixes it, great, if not, please give me the makes and model numbers of the router, adapter, and computer.

I would also next try resetting the router to factory settings. There is probably a reset button on the bottom or somewhere else depending on the router.

Acer 6930 wireless adapter failure conflict


Most Acers use a form of Intel IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. Like me you've fallen foul of thinking that keeping your computer up to date using Automated Windows Update will keep everything in good order when in fact it can generate more problems than it solves

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.

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...
