The simplest solution is to use NDISWrapper, which lets Ubuntu use the WIndows drivers for your wireless adapter. Information on how to do this is at the Ubuntu documentation site here.

Hope this helps you get connected, and thanks for using Fixya!

Pi21ag-a-k9 driver for windows 7


The latest driver provided by Cisco systems for the PI21AG PCI 802.11a/g adapter was for Windows Vista (Version 1.1A). Currently no Windows 7 driver is listed in the downloads in the software center on Cisco.com. Windows XP and 2000 Drivers are also available (WinXP install wizard is 4.5). Sometimes the Windows Vista or Windows XP drivers can be used in Windows 7 and you may try that. Driver downloads can be found at https://software.cisco.com/download/type.html?mdfid=278853379&flowid=7244&sc=Y&softwareid=280775081

Install drivers device windows xp


That's because wireless protocol "N" wasn't invented when XP was written. Either buy a "G" wireless adapter (which will work with XP) or upgrade your operating system to Vista or 7.

Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 does not include native drivers for the Del True Mobile 1450 USB Wireless adapter and there will be no 1450 USB Wireless adapter drivers available from Dell that are compatible with the Windows Vista or Winds 7 Operating System.

There will be no support for the Dell True Mobile 1450 USB Wireless adapter in Windows Vista or Windows 7.

I put ubuntu the computer over heet and now only work the trial of ubuntu. how vista can run again?


If you erased the Windows partition when you installed Ubuntu you will need to re-insert your Windows Vista disc and reinstall Windows over Ubuntu using that, This will only work if you have enough keys remaining on your Windows Vista License, however. Hope this helps.

Where is the wireless radio button on an old HP Pavillion 8705? I just installed a usb wireless adapter and now I'm running the Linksys Add a computer to your wireless network wizard, but the message tells...


On desktops, that's usually software controlled, not via a button.
nce you have the right software installed for the usb adapter for your operating system, there should be an icon in the system tray where you can activate the wireless feature.
I stress for your operating system because I had to get a new adapter once because i couldn't find vista or windows 7 drivers for my old adapter which I used with windows xp.

My computer will not install the wireless USB software. I need help. I get through the first couple of prompts and then it just looks like it keeps loading but does not.


What is the operating system on your computer. If it is windows XP or VISTA, then try to install the adapter using the found new hardware wizard.
Do not run the disc that comes with the wireless adapter. connect the adapter to the computer first. you will get the message found new hardware.
if you do not get the message that means the adapter is detected by the computer or the software might be installed already. uninstall the software and then connect he adapter.
If you get the found new hard ware message then it will ask you can windows connect ....
select = no not at this time and click next.
on the next window select the option install software automatically and insert the disc that comes with the adapter. it will install the software .
after that you will need to connect to the network.

Ubuntu 8.10 wont detect my wireless card


You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.
