SOURCE: Can't access gateway 450rog wireless!

Yes, the wireless adapter needs a driver, but unless you deleted it, that is not the problem
The wireless function can be turned on and off by a Fn and special function key combo. Some laptops even have a switch on the front of the palm rest that turns the wireless on.
Once the wireless function has been turned on, you will be able to see networks in the area.

Intel wireless drivers for Gateway 450ROG


Recently ran into an issue where someone did not have all the original materials for their laptop. One of the issues was the wireless NIC acting up. The drivers were kind of a pita to locate so I figured I'd post a link here to the Intel drivers.

I have downloaded and installed all the wireless network drivers for a Gateway 450ROG. None of them seem to work. No wireless network connection is showing yet. I only have a 1394 Connection under...


Verify that the wireless switch is turned on.

Open the System control panel, click on the Hardware tab, then click on Device Manager. Look for network interface devices, especially any that have yellow warning icons marked on them. To find out what they are, right-click on them and click "Properties". This will also tell you whether the drivers are functional.

Download the latest definitions for your anti-virus program on another computer and use a USB drive to transfer it to the problem unit. At least one morally moronic person has written a virus that disables the network devices so you can't download anti-virus updates.

I reinstalled winxp sp3 on a gateway 450 rog. I was able to install all the drivers except the network controller and it also won't recognize the wireless adapter, any thoughts or ideas?


I had the same problem.
The "Network Controller" in my case had to do with the wireless network driver on my 450ROG.
None of the drivers that are available for 450ROG on the Gateway Support site worked correctly.
Here's what I did to solve the problem:
1. Flip the computer over. 2. On the back, you may see a little module that says "Fitted with Intel WM3B2100 802.11b". That's the built-in wireless network card (had no idea this computer had one, I inherited it). 3. Go to the Intel support site:http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ 4. Do a search for the "WM3B2100" driver. 5. Download and install the driver.
Fixed it for me!
Full info about the Gateway 450ROG is available at: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/450ROG/3501353sp66.shtml This helped get me on the right track.
