f you suddenly have a problem with your
network connection, before you make any changes, you must determine
whether you have a problem with (1) the wireless device on the computer,
(2) the connection between the computer and the network , or (3) the
connection from the ISP provider to the network. Each of these devices /
connections must be operating independently before they can all work
View the wireless icons in the system tray
to determine the status of the devices and connections. Then, open the
appropriate utilities for detailed information on potential problems.
The detailed windows are: the Windows Wireless Network Connection, the
HP Wireless Assistant, and the Device Manager.
When you have the detailed information, identify the specific type of connection problem
by reading the connection description statements below. Then select the
statement that most closely describes your problem for a detailed
explanation of the corrective actions.Internal
wireless networking adapters or PCMCIA cards may have problems
connecting to a wireless network if the Advanced options are not set
properly. For instance, some PCMCIA devices can adjust the power output
to increase the strength of the wireless signal.NOTE:If
the computer and router are in the same physical area, you may want to
reduce the signal strength to save battery. However, if they are not
located near to each other, you can turn the power up to 100% to
maximize the signal.Most HP
internal wireless cards can be set to turn off to save battery power. If
the wireless connection was working but suddenly stopped when using the
battery, the card may be turning itself off exactly as planned. You can
use the Device Manager to specify the power settings and keep the
wireless card turned on.To verify and change the wireless device settings in the Device Manager, do the following actions.
, Control Panel
, and then Device Manager
Click the plus sign (+)
next to Network Adapters
. If multiple devices are listed, you should check the devices one at a time.
Right-click on the network adapter, and select Properties
.Select the Power Management
tab, if available, and verify the power settings. Not all wireless device drivers have a Power Management option.
you have set the Power Management options, close the Device Manager,
restart the computer, and attempt to reconnect to the wireless network.
You have a PCMCIA and a USB slot so you could use either often the PCMCIA wireless cards with an aerial give a better reception
if you need a ethernet cable controller than pcmcia may be better
quite a few makes to choose from d-lnk, netgear, etc
I assume your PC does not have a network adapter - most do
heres a link to the R52 driver site
A set of user manuals are here
check to see if you have an adapter
Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc
look for network adapters , click on the + sign and then see what adapters you have - if you have anything with 802.11 or wifi then you have a wireless adapter - if you have an ethernet or 10/100 listed then you have an ethernet controller - if you have any X or ! or ? then you may need to download the driver from the link above
NOTE the wireless can be turned off via a switch or FN +f? key
This message is shown once the computer is booted; more than likely these Network Adapters are not being utilize, because the network connection is using "Wireless"service; the "Ethernet Controller is part of the (Wired-LAN) Family." The Drivers maybe (Disabled), or the ("drivers") need to be "Updated. "Do the following; go to Control Panel, open Device Manager, click to open "Network Adapters", check to see if adapter are in ("error, disabled, or working properly etc"). "Update Drivers", and restart the computer." "I hope this help FiX it!"
Ethernet Card adapter is a wired adapter but you can always check for wireless adapters.Go to device manager by right clicking on my computer->properties->Hardware->Device Manager.
In device manager click the + sign at network adapters and check if it is written wireless under that then you have a wireless adapter.
Nothing wrong with having two network adapters installed on your computer. If you have this DWA-552 wireless adapter installed as well as an onboard NIC, the correct thing to do is have both drivers installed so you see them both in your Control Panel->Network Connections window.
If you really want the onboard nic to go away, go into device manager and disable it - not uninstall it.
