I have a media centre PC, on the Tower it says Wireless Lan but in network connections the wireless lan is ot visible. I am presuming this is turned off. Doed anyone know how to find out if the PC is wireless enabled and if so how to turn it on.
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.

This model Bother printer has a 10baseT LAN connection and can be connected to your LAN network and to your HP laptop via the wireless router. Connect a LAN cable from the printer to the wireless router. To print from your HP laptop, check the IP address range your wireless router issues to your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the brother printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses. Next install the Brother printer driver normally. Then configure the Brother printer Properties. Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the Brother printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port - Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10 Printer name eg Brother Click OK Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.
check your IP Adress settings are correct for this machine,
Go to start ,then click on run,Type CMD,Then type IPCONFIG/ALL.it will show you a list of all the devices connected to your machine and your local network,
Have you got LAN & WLAN adaptors on board?
this will explain your message,
you will have to set the ip settings on each adaptor
ie LAN 192.168.1.2 and WLAN 192.168.1.3
This wiil help determine which adaptor is to be used when connecting to the network and the internet.
If your using wireless on computer to connect to the internet then run your wizard to help setup the connection
Same for the wired LAN ,use your wizard
The settings for your modem can be reset easily and your ISP will help get you connected to the net because you already have an account with them,

What operating system are you using and what make and model of router are you using. for now, try to uninstall your wireless LAN driver and re-install it again. make sure the wireless feature switch in front of the laptop is turned on and a Blue light, a wireless local area network (LAN) device is turned on. If it is Amber: All wireless devices are turned off.
is your wireless card installed check in the installed devices section and see under network controllers if there is a wireless if not you'll need to run windows update via a lan and get the drivers if not find the support page for your laptop and download the drivers for the Wireless LAN card.
