Try a few things first:
1. Make sure the card is fully seated in your machine. 2. Reboot your computer 3. Power off your system and remove the battery from your laptop for a few moments. Reinsert, boot up and try again. 4. Insert and re-insert your card. 5. Make sure you have the latest updates to your Operating System. 6. Check your Device Manager. Does it show up at all, or is there a exclamation mark? If there is nothing after you try the above steps, your card may be failing or have failed; if there is an exclamation mark, there may be a resource conflict.
If you have that exclamation mark, search your problem on Google, and try something along these lines:

I have a HP Probook 4510S witk Windows 7 and I want to install Ubuntu 10.10 but it is impossible to recognize the driver WLAN Broadcom 802 11b g ... What can I do it?


Broadcom cards require a "nonfree" firmware that Ubuntu is not allowed to distribute. You will need to install the 'bcmwl-kernel-source' package. The following link may be of assistance to you:

NO GETTING WLAN DRIVER FOR MY ACER ASPIRIE 5500Z LAPTOP FOR WINDOWS VISTA .


Hi,

Depending on the wlan model, you need one of these drivers

Ambit
Atheros
Broadcom
Intel

As this is an older model, the drivers may not be compatible to Vista.
If none of them are working, either try to install Windows 7 (with 7 i had the WLAN already installed with windows on a travelmate 5520) or revert to windows XP, for which one of the drivers I gave you works for sure.

Wifi is not working while iam using in windows XP operating system


Hi Sivakumar133,

Some reasons why wifi stops working is due to corrupted driver or defective WLAN card. There are some ways on how to diagnose this problem, just reinstall the driver and configure it again with the wireless access point. You can download the WLAN driver for this particular system by visiting this link. You will notice that on the Networking Wireless LAN section it has 2 types of WLAN card, Broadcom and Intel. Just try to install the Broadcom driver because this is compatible with XP. If you're not sure what is the model of your WLAN just check it under device manager and look for Network adapter. After downloading, install the .exe file then restart the system. You can now configure again the computer to your router.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Problem installing WLAN card after installing Vista


First rule-of-thumb, don't trust windows updates for drivers. With that being said, you should find out what the chipset of that Atheros card really is. Download a program called Unknown Devices, by Halfdone. Install the program and run it. It will tell you the actual chipset. Then google search that chipset with the words "xp driver" after it. You should also look at the list and see what the bluetooth type is in you laptop. Usually it will be either a Toshiba bluetooth stack, Widcomm, or Microsoft. Then google that with "xp" after it to find the driver for the bluetooth. Install the software and driver and you should be all set.
Let me know if you need more help.
And if this fixed your issue please make sure to leave comments. Thanks.
