Question about Gateway 835GM (835GH) PC Desktop

Network Adapter We have an integrated Network adapter.  Everything was working fine until we picked up a Linksys wireless router.  Before connecting the hardware, it tells you to install the cd first.  So we did.  Afterwards, the programs that was installed was trying to run, and it gave us and error telling us that there were no Network Adapters found.  I looked in the device manager, and the network adapter was gone completely.     I tried a system restore and that did not work.  Would not allow the computer to do it.  I purchased 2 PCI Network Cards and tried to install them, both were recognized by the computer, but after installing the drivers they would come up as unknown in the device manager telling me that windows couldn't install the drivers correctly.      I have scanned the computer with Norton, and AdAware, and nothing came up.     Is there a way to install the drivers only, without having to do a system restore?

Re: Network Adapter

Hi Coolieman
Just to basics, remove or disable on BIOS the network adapter
then go on (XP I PRESUME) on save mode and see if you can disable or uninstall any net card.
2) Reenable the net card, and if redetect , install the drivers according, sometimes the PC install them for you.
try again your setting on the lynksys.

What parts are needed to set up wifi?

That machine does not appear to have any PCI slots, or built-in WI-Fi. You may be able to get a USB 2 Wi-Fi adapter. Just make sure the one you get works with your Operating System. Also, you will have to have a Wi-Fi router to connect to your Internet Service Provider.

Need to set up a wireless connection

Do you have the CDs that came with the router and the adapter?  If you do, you can run the Router CD on your PC upstairs to configure the Router, and Run the adapter CD on the a610 to configure the adapter.If you don't have the CDs, I need the brand and model number of the wireless router, and the model number of the linksys adapter.  If you need help physically installing the card, let me know.

How to connect wireless router, Netgear WGR614, to my computer?

4 steps to set up your home wireless network
Choose your wireless equipment
The first step is to make sure that you have the equipment you need. As you're looking for products in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports three different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. We recommend 802.11g, because it offers excellent performance and is compatible with almost everything.
Shopping list
• Broadband Internet connection
• Wireless router
• A computer with built-in wireless networking support or a wireless network adapter

A wireless router
The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Be sure to get a wireless router, and not a wireless access point.
A wireless network adapter
Network adapters wirelessly connect your computer to your wireless router. If you have a newer computer you may already have wireless capabilities built in. If this is the case, then you will not need a wireless network adapter. If you need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer, buy a USB wireless network adapter. If you have a laptop, buy a PC card-based network adapter. Make sure that you have one adapter for every computer on your network.
Note: To make setup easy, choose a network adapter made by the same vendor that made your wireless router. For example, if you find a good price on a Linksys router, choose a Linksys network adapter to go with it. To make shopping even easier, buy a bundle, such as those available from D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, Microsoft, and Buffalo. If you have a desktop computer, make sure that you have an available USB port to plug the wireless network adapter into. If you don't have any open USB ports, buy a hub to add additional ports.
Connect your wireless router
Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.

If you have more than one computer on your network, try disabling the firewalls on all computers and trying again. If this works, then you need to adjust your firewall settings to allow your network to function properly. If this does not work, you may have to log into your linksys router and check the wireless settings.

Let me know what happens.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
