My son who lives in a different state than I, says his sister installed software and that the WiFi adapter blinks. They told me it suppose to stay solid. Maybe not reading connection? They are running Windows Vista.
To install it on vista, you must put the utility disc in the computer. By the way, some people have not even got a clue of how to install it. When a dialog comes up to ask you do you wish to run it, Press yes. When the installation comes up press cancel. And do the same for any other installations that come up. Press OK to the last dialog box that comes up. Two more dialog boxes should come up. Now, here's the trick. Press the Reinstall with reccomended settings on both of them. Now your back at the start, but this time you should let the installations work. Don't forget to create a icon in the desktop. Now, open the utility, take out the adapter and plug it back in. Now it will say that you have to restart the computer. Do that. Open the utility after that and select your network card. It may now have a connection with the Wii or DS.

A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT YOU CAN TRY. MAKE SURE THAT YOU GOT THE LATEST DRIVER FOR THE WIFI CARD. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A CLEAR LINE OF SITE TO THE WIFI ROUTER. YOU MIGHT TRY A USB TO WIFI ADAPTER INSTEAD. YOU CAN PICK ONE UP AT MOST MAJOR STORES LIKE WAL-MART, OFFICE MAX, BEST BUY, ETC.
IF YOU FEEL LIKE THE PCI CARD IS WORKING OR THAT YOU TRIED A USB TO WIFI ADAPTER CONSIDER GETTING A RANGE EXTENDER TO GO BETWEEN THE COMPUTER AND THE ROUTER IF AND ONLY IF YOUR ROUTER IS IN A DIFFERENT BUILDING.
SOMETIMES THE SOFTWARE CAN PREVENT YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION LIKE FOR EXAMPLE A VIRUS. OR EVEN THE NETWORK IS CONFIGURED INCORRECTLY.
Well, what you do is install any network drivers, for your WiFi adapter, then Install the software for your WiFi Card. Now your WiFi Router, has a Name.. an SSID, this is what you will "See" when you search for a network. Also it may have a WEP/WAP key... or "password" you need to know this. You should have all this info from when you installed the router. Now when you try to connect to the network, you choose the SSID & when asked enter your Key (Password/number) and you will be able to access the network. if there is none you just go straight through. This is done either through the Windows WiFi or the makers installed software.. it makes no difference really. If you use proprietary software you must turn off windows wifi manager.
Ok, I am just going to start out by saying do you have a wireless router. I know this may seem obvious to some people, but I have ran into many incidents where people were under the impression that if they have a computer and the internet, the wifi for the xbox will work. If you dont have a wireless router, or there is not one built into your DSL box, then you can hop down to walmart or newegg.com and get one for around 30-40 bucks. Hope this helps.
It has nothing to do with the brands. I do have different peripherals of different brands and they work well.
Maybe your son's laptop is more recent than yours. When you connect the wireless adapter to your laptop, does it detect the wireless network? I remember having a similar problem on vacation. At the hotel, I could'nt connect to the wireless network. The tech support told me to adjust some settings on my laptop. He said to go to the Network connexions, right-click on the wireless connection and selection Properties. Click on Configure...And select the Advanced button. Then on the list select Power on saving Mode. Other than Max power save mode.
it seems no problem in sony viao. your computer may be infected by spyware virus. if u have antivirus/internet security software installed then connect internet run live update. after that run full system virus scan.
