    When I would open Network Connections it used to show Local Area Connection and then Wireless Connection. Now it only shows Wireless Connection. The cable company said I need to buy a new Local Area Connection card. I currently have the router plugged into the Wireless slot and it works like a LAN but I can't get wireless now.

    I hope this helps.
    Thanks!

    what do you mean by LAC and what you mean it has no wireless card? or no wireless router? please elaborate more

    If your running Windows XP or later the LAN connection must have been disabled through Control Panel. Look for it in Device Manager and in the Device Manager look for the LAN, right-click on the device and enable. It should start working when enabling.

Your router's cable is connected in the wrong connection.

1. Remove the cable from the wireless connector
2. Insert it into one of the ports of the router that has LAN not WAN.
3. You will be able to connect your wireless and wired computers to the router.

This could have blue for WAN or Yellow for WAN and then the rest can have yellow for the 4 PCs to connect.

Many Inspiron 530 computers came equipped with a 802.11b/g wireless solution, you may be connected via that connection (Dell wireless 1505)

The router is running fine all hook ups are fine changed the wireless card took that to a computer place and it was running fine at the shop when I got the pc home unable to access the internet even though...


The cable internet is not "seeing" the computer. The router is blocking it. That is why it works if you plug it into the modem directly. How to solve this is to turn everything off and unplug power to modems and routers for 3-5 minutes. Then replug in routers. Then restart computers.

That is why it worked at the computer store. Everything was shut down and restarted.

Also, sometimes it is necessary to call the ISP (for example Comcast) and have them re-send the signal. Also going to Control Panel Network Connections and choose "repair the connection" will reset the signal.
Be patient it will work.

I can not load the wireless network adapter drivers


try to uninstall the drivers for the network adapter and reinstall them

First lets confirm your issue. Right click on “Computer” or “My Computer” in XP. Select Manage and then on the right side select device manager. On the left if you see a yellow exclamation mark next to your drive and were getting any of the above error codes then we have a simple fix.
Go ahead and right click on the CD or DVD drive that has a yellow exclamation mark next to it and select delete or remove.
For Vista click the windows “start” button on the bottom left and in the search box type regedit . You will be asked to confirm your admin account. Just hit next or continue.
Now browse to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
It’s just like browsing through folders so don’t worry about it. if you get lost just start over. BE SURE you follow the path 100% There are many similar files and folders so double check they all match up.
Now that you are at the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} Folder on the right side you will see several entries. right Click and delete the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters. These will be remade once you reboot.
for XP follow the above but instead click the windows start button and then select run then type regedit .
Reboot your computer once you have removed the upper and lower fillters. When your computer boots back up it will see the drives as new devices. give it another 20-30 seconds to install the new device.

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

unfortunately wireless is slower. i wouldn't worry though as 100mps is what windows always says but this itself is not accurate as your isp is probably even less than 18 mbps.

Acer 3610 lost wireless connection to HP printer


Usually when my computer decides to act up like this (most often it refuses to connect to my school network, even though my other laptops connect perfectly at the same time), I simply go to the device manager and tell it to uninstall then reinstall my drivers. I know this might be tedious, but it usually works for me.

Also, yes, I too wonder why I bring multiple laptops to school, but I suppose I'm a geek like that. Ha ha.

Oh, and just in case you didn't already know, to do what I said,
a. right click my computer
b. go to properties
c. click hardware
d. click device manager
e. go to network adapters
f. right click the one that says something along the lines of "wireless card" or WLAN
g. go to uninstall
h. exit device manager
i. go back to device manager
j. right click the device you just uninstalled (it should have a yellow ! next to it)
k. click reinstall/update drivers
l. Success
m. Rate me with 4 stars. ha ha
