Re: Wireless Lan on HP Pavilion M1000

Surely you can find out if you have a wireless network card installed . For this you can goto device manager and under network adapters look for any wireless adapter.

Heres How you check device manager.

  • Right-click My Computer then select Properties
  • Select the Hardware tab
  • Click the Device Manager button
  • Alternative solution: invoke devmgmt.msc
  • Alternative solution #2: Device Manager is part of the Computer Management, which also includes Event Viewer, Services Manager, Disk Management, as well as many other things. Right-Click My Computer then select Manage to start Computer Management, or invoke compmgmt.msc.

Also I am not too sure about what system you are using and whats the operating system you are using.

So I just got a Dell Optiplex sx280 that runs windows xp and can't connect it to the wireless internet at my house. The built-in driver is a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller, and I don't...

Desktop computers do not usually have a wireless card installed. They will have a built-in LAN card that uses a LAN cable.
If you want to connect your computer using a wireless connection then you will need to install a wireless card in your computer and configure it to communicate with your wireless router.
Otherwise you can connect to your wireless router using a LAN cable.
Your wireless router may have built-in LAN ports and you can connect your computer to the wireless router using a network cable.

The wireless lan on hp pavilion media center pc is getting a low signal one bar out of five. How do I determine if its the antenna or the 802.11 card that is faulty?

move either the router or the pc around. If this is a personal wireless you can buy or make antenna extenders to increase the range. You can also try a different firmware like dd-wrt which allows for greater control of the wireless.
