How I fix a network adapter on a ASUS M5200A laptop


A couple of things you can try is disabling and re-enabling the adapter by going to Control Panel>Network and Internet or Network and Sharing Center (depending on your view)>Network and Sharing (if you had to click on Network and Internet first)>change adapter settings>right click on your wireless adapter and click disable>then right click on the adapter again and click enable. If this doesn't work try removing the adapter and re-add it by clicking Start>right click computer or This PC>click manage>click Device Manager>click the triangle next to network adapters to expand the list>right click on the network adapter in question and click Uninstall (In the box that pops up make sure the check box for delete drivers is UNCHECKED). Once uninstalled right click at the top of the list which will be your computer name, then click scan for hardware changes. This will re-install the network adapter.

I was having problems connecting to a network, somehow I hit disable and now it seems dead, I went into the icon and it says no card found, no lights nothing, how do I bring it back re- enable it


Assuming you're in Windows, Hit the start button, right-click computer/my computer, hit manage.

This will bring you to the computer management console. Open the Device Manager from the left pane.

Expand the "Network Adapters" option listed. From here, you can enable/disable your Network Card or check for up to date drivers.

The wirless on my acer aspire has been disabled. how do i enable it?


There is generally a button or switch that will enable and disable the wireless hardware on your computer. If it is disabled via software instead of hardware, you can go to the control panel, and look for your network settings. You can find your wireless adapter, and make sure it is not disabled.

I have 2 acer data managerment problem found in edata security software installation it says please close all running programs and reinstall edats security. the second one is catalyst control center is not...


> please close all running programs and reinstall edats security.

Close programs (word-processor, web-browser).
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Add/Remove Programs
Click on EDATS SECURITY (or something approximately that)
Click Remove
Click OK
Shutdown
Restart
Reinstall the software

> catalyst control center is not supported by the friver [?]
> version of your enabled graphics adapter.

ATI (www.ati.com) distributes the "Catalyst" software with their adapter video-cards. So, there is a problem with the "Control Center" component of their software.

> please update your ati graphics,
> or enable your ati adapter using displays manager

First, do you have an add-in video-card in your computer?
If not, then you should not be trying to use the ATI software,
and you should remove it:
* click Start
* click Control Panel
* click Add/Remove Programs
* select the ATI Catalyst software
* click Remove
* restart your computer

Second, if you have added an ATI card, you may need to restart your computer, press DELETE to enter BIOS SETUP, and "disable" the "onboard" video-adapter, or change the video-priority so that the ATI video-card becomes the "primary" video-adapter, and the onboard video-adapter becomes the "secondary" video-adapter.
Then, click Save Changes, and before selecting Exit From Setup,
move the video data-cable from the onboard VGA port to the VGA port on the ATI video-adapter. Then, "blindly", click Exit, and let your computer restart. Then, during the reboot, the ATI software will recognize the new "primary" video-card, and will the software will control the ATI video-hardware.

Sometimes, it helps to have a second computer monitor, and connect one adapter to the "onboard" VGA-port, and the other to the ATI VGA-port, so that you can see video output wherever it is produced.

Toshiba satellite wifi not working


Hello
You might have physically switched on the adapter, but in Windows it is still disabled.

In Windows XP, click the start button, look for CONNECT TO (don't go in the all programs menu), and click SHOW all connections. A window opens showing all the connections available. If the wireless connection icon displays a red X crossing it, it is disabled.

To reenable it,

Point the mouse cursor to the wireless connection and right click mouse button. Click enable or repair.

One question though. If your computer is toshiba, you must have installed the configFree software that came with it.

If so, look to the left right of the task bar and click the ConfigFree Icon. Choose Connectivity doctor. It will diagnose your connections. If one is disabled or has a problem, a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark ! will appear on the connection.

Use the device setting thumbnail, select your WIFI adapter . A button at the right bottom side, will show either Enable (if your adapter is disabled), or disable i(f adapter is enabled). With that button, you can toggle between enable and disable. After that click the close button, and hopefully you will be able to surf the web.


Hope it helps

My broadband wireless adapter isn't connecting


Hmmmm... this is quite hard endyananna... Is your computer have its own third party Wireless Software? Sometyms Built in adapters on laptops come with their own wireless software that manages the wireless connection. First thing is to locate that program by going to network connections and checking the name of the adapter. Once you found the name, go to the all programs and look for that software there. Try to connect using that software first. In case that it wont work then you have no choice but to use Wireless Zero of Windows. go to run, type services.msc, enable it , start the service, go to network connections, go to wireless cx properties, put a check on use windows to configure my wireless network settings, click ok, right click on wireless network cx, open up view available networks, you should be able to connect after that. In case that it didnt work. Then I have a hunch that youre computer have another software that configures your wireless network connection and that prgram must be used. Good Luck then. If you have any problems, you can always call your OEM for support.
