You network adapter either is not installed or the OS recognized it as a "generic adapter" and apply an appropriate driver for the said hardware. this is good but sometimes the windows just apply the nearest driver close to what is you driver...

if you network adapter is brand new chances are that you still got the disk came with the package and just uninstall the window's xp driver and reinstall it. if you dont have the disk just look at the website of the said adapter.

solution:
if you are using windows xp
1. click control panel
2. click the icon "system"
3. at the hardware tab click the "device manager" and look for the network adapter branch
4. if you can see a network adapter installed right click it and click uninstall...
5. reboot and let them window automatically search and reinstall your adapter.
6. if you the windows don't automatically install it, go back to control panel and click "add hardware" and install the hardware manually

hope this help...

How do I permanently disable the radio on a usb wireless adapter?


Hello, welcome to fixya support. If you have the driver of the device already installed, you can disable it completely from the control panel.

For windows 7:
Go to Start-->Control Panel-->Device Manager-->Expand the group named "Network Adapters" find the one corresponding to your netgear device, then right-click on it and click Disable.

Also, you can check for it in the group "Universal Serial Bus Controllers". As mentioned previously from Control Panel , expand that group and if you find a corresponding driver related to netgear adapter, just right-click on it and "Disable".

In case that you already have netgear software installed along with your USB adapter, please disable the radio function from there.

More info on this can be found from the user manual (relevant pages 27, 33, 34).

I installed TP-Link WN7200 on Windows 7 Home Premium, the drivers is not digitally signed. The adapter is disabled and I can't enable it. There is no error in device manager. Please help me.


It is ok if the driver is not digitally signed. There's no need to worry.

To enable the adapter:
  1. Click on the Windows Start button
  2. Type in "network"
  3. Open "Network and Sharing Center"
  4. On the left bar, click on "Change Adapter Settings"
  5. Select your wireless adapter
  6. Right click on the wireless adapter then select Enable.
If you cannot select Enable, it means your adapter is already enabled. The adapter has a gray icon due to it not being connected to a router.

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.

For that you have to disable startup.
For that press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in "msconfig" without "" then press ok.
Then you can see system configuration utility click on last tab startup and disable all startup or netgear utility then apply and restart computer then it not open at startup.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

I would like to bring to your notice one of the issue that came across with a Vista based PC of a EU who reported in his mail that in "Device" manager their are 6 to 4 adaptor is listing by name itself and for this he is unable to install any drivers as it is showing that the drivers are not installed for it. Even though EU is able to browse the internet.

Normally the above issue is related to TCP/IP transmission protocol that uses by Vista. As Vista by default support IPv6 TCP/IP protocol for data transmission over the network. 6to4 adapter is a component used for transmitting IPv6 packets trough IPv4 network correctly. If the drivers for this component is not properly installed or corrupted there will be a code 31 or code 10 error appearing beside this component. You may update the driver for your network adapter or chipset, and then try to uninstall and reinstall the this component as mentioned below. I am enclosing a snapshot of the issue along with the mail so that you can also have a clear idea of the issue.

=======Uninstalling 6to4 Adaptor==========

1. Click on Windows icon, and enter device manager into the Start Search field.

5. Select "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list".
6. Select Network adapters from the window.
7. Select "Microsoft" from left window.
8. From right window select "Microsoft 6to4 Adapter"
9. Click on next and finish the wizard.


After performing the above steps issue shoule get resolve. If the issue persist then, I request you to disable this device in device manager. By disabling this it will not effect your internet browsing or your wireless conectivity, as Microsoft also confirm this in their database. In order to disable this device perform the below said steps.

1. Click on Windows icon.

Cannot connect laptop with the eithernet cord


If you cannot connect your laptop using an Ethernet cable, make sure the laptop's wireless ethernet is disabled. To disable it in window xp, click the Start button and open the Control Panel. Double-click Network Connections. Right-click Wireless Network Connection and select Disable from the drop-down list.

04e3ee0.png If you are using a laptop with Windows Vista, click the Start Button and type Network and Sharing into the Start Search box. Select Network and Sharing Center from the Programs list. Select Manage Network Connections from the left pane of the window. The Network Connections window will open. Click on Wireless Network Connection. Select Disable this Network Device at the top of the window.

9a7c8c6.png Troubleshoot the Network
After disabling the laptop's wireless connection, be sure to restart the computer before trying to connect with the Ethernet cable again. If you still cannot connect the laptop to the network with an Ethernet cable after rebooting, check to make sure there is not a problem with the network itself. If there are others nearby connected to the same network, such as in your office, dorm or another public location, ask them whether they are currently able to connect to the network. If no one else is using the network, contact the system administrator or your Internet service provider to see if there may be an outage. This step can save you plenty of time troubleshooting if there is an outage in your area!
Troubleshoot the Ethernet Cable
If there is no problem with the network itself, the reason that you cannot connect the laptop may be the ethernet cable. Make sure that the Ethernet Cable is securely connected to both the laptop and the wall outlet. If possible, try connecting the Ethernet cable into another wall jack or port on the router, and then try using a different Ethernet cable. The Ethernet cable you are using may be damaged.


8686681.png Troubleshoot Network Settings
If the Ethernet cable does not seem to be the reason why you cannot connect to the network, check the laptop's network settings. In Windows XP, open the Control Panel and select Network Connections. Open Local Area Connection and check the status of the connection.
In Windows Vista, go to the Network and Sharing Center and select Diagnose and Repair from the left pane and wait for the results.


If the Local Area Connection is listed as Disabled, right-click it and choose Enable.
If it says that the network adapter is unplugged and you have ruled out a problem with the Ethernet cable and port, the laptop's network adapter may have failed. Try using the same Ethernet cable on another computer. If you are able to connect to the network on another computer using the same Ethernet cord, contact the laptop's manufacturer, a computer repair technician or replace the network adapter yourself.

Can I get a replacement AMD wireless card


Try this first before you give up...any usb adapter will work by the way....just keep the windows wirless utility as your main wireless software.

Windows WiFi Fix,

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:

Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager
