Check if the wifi adapter is installed properly: right click on Computer, choose Properties, then Device Manager - in the Network adapters category find your device and check it status (double click on it). If it has a question mark and status says that it does not working properly - you need to update its driver. Use a cable connection to download the driver if you don't have a disk with it.

Check among the CDs you got when you bought your laptop. You'll see one called 'drivers'. Inside your drivers CD you'll find a Network Adapter driver. Install it and your wireless should work.

If you upgrade your operating system like from windows xp to windows vista, you need to install new hardware driver for your computer like for LAN, webcam, WAN and others because the old driver is only compatible with the old operating system and not with VISTA operating system. Solution would are, download webcam and WAN driver for Windows Vista and install it into your computer. Don't just upgrade your computer because the configuration is not the same with the old operating system. If problem still exist, just upgrade the service pack from 2 to 3. There is available install for upgrading the service pack of each operating system. and surely all your hardwares will function.

I've intalled a copy of windows vista Satellite


Hello,

visit the website of your laptop. (Take for instance, if your laptop is hp, visit www.hp.com) Once you are able to open the site, go to the download and software section of the site, you will be asked to enter your laptop name and model, select your operating system (Win Vista) and continue.

You will see a complete list of your laptop driver for windows vista.

I hope you understand my explanations.

Take care.

I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since. Hope this idea helps!
