SOURCE: 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...

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...

Did you try running the driver update tool from Gateway's website? These tools are usually pretty good with finding the drivers for the specific hardware of computers automatically for you:

Hi, I have just re-loaded the Windows operating system onto my Compaq Presario 2143EA. Then I downloaded the Broadcom drivers for the wireless adapter via the HP website. However, it seems the actual...


If the adapter is present(uninstalled), it should be listed in device manager under other devices and NOT under network adapters. If you see the adapter there, right click it and click on update drivers. If you don't see the adapter even under other devices in device manager, you can restart the computer and check. If still can't see, check with a computer hardware technician who will open your computer and check if the wireless card is being provided with power and if the physical connections are ok.

For further clarifications, please revert!
Thanks for asking.

I am having problems connecting to wireless with my TI PCI-1420 Cardbus Controller on my Dell Latitude C510 after I reinstalled Windows XP. It is acting like there is no wireless adapters at all.


You need Service Pack 2 or above to use wireless on XP. I have always hated this problem and feel your frustration.

You will need to either hook your computer up on a wired connection to get the service pack or download it on another computer and transfer it by some type of removable media (CD, floppy).

Service Pack 2 download link:

Web Pages Have stopped loading completely


Norton is the problem, try and update your wireless drivers. If this doesn't work, go to the device driver and uninstall the wireless card, reboot the machine and that will force windows to load a fresh driver to the card. If windows asks to search windows update, allow it and let it complete the install, while you are doing this make sure you are connected to the router via a cable. good luck. If none of that works, you may try going to Norton and getting their Norton Removal Tool, this is the only way to truly rid the computer of this program and Norton has been known to "out of the blue" make wireless useless.

Same BS wifi problem as everyone else


Have you tried restoring the computer back a couple of days to see if that clears up the hardware hiccup? You can also go to device manager and uninstall the device and delete the drivers. Turn the laptop off, take the wireless card out. Start the laptop back up and boot it fully....After a few, shut down again. Install the wireless card and restart the laptop. When asked to install the drivers for new device found, say ok, make sure you are online with an ethernet line so windows can go online and load the newest drivers unless you have them on your C drive already.

2wire wirelessa card


Believe u r talking about updating ur drivers for the wireless card...
right click on my computer--->click manage--->click device manager on left hand side on the window that opens---->click the + sign next to network adapters----> right click on wireless adapter----> click update driver

any driver installation is free or u can log onto the official website of 2wire... look for drivers matching ur wireless card... download & install
would suggest, while installing driver after downloading should plug out the usb wireless adapter.

WLAN device driver loading Issue


Sounds like the device driver to the wireless card is corrupt. Click on start>right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware tab then Device manager. Click on the "+" sign next to your wireless Network adapter. Then right-click on your network adapter, click on Update driver. The system will automatically look for the new driver and download it. If there is no new driver then go to the manufactureres website. All of the drivers are there. Find your computer and download the driver.
