How to Install a Wireless Netgear USB Adapter?


Just inset it to a USB port. The adapter will usually come with a CD, carrying a proprietary app to manage it, but I found with one of these things it was better to let Windows manage it.

Then just turn on wi-fi in the Windows control panel and it should search for available networks and connect.

Connect x2580 Lexmark printer to toshiba laptop


Hello chuck01438 ,


  1. Remove the printer out of the box and connect the power cable to a power adapter.
  2. Install the drivers and necessary software. Enclosed with the printer package should be a driver CD-ROM for the printer. It might also contain some print enhancement software supplied by the manufacturer of the printer. Follow the instructions for software installation.
  3. Connect the square end of the USB cable to the printer and the rectangular end to your laptop.
  4. Turn the printer ON. Your laptop should find the newly attached hardware, and recognize it as printer.
  5. Open any document or picture and click on Print in File menu or click on a printer icon in the toolbar.

You have not specified the make and model of the hard drive so it is impossible to give you the correct advice.
I suggest you take your hard drive to the computer shop and ask them for an USB adapter that connects to your hard drive. That way you be certain to have the correct USB hard drive adapter.

Cannot install parallel to USB printer cable.


I can only really offer a suggestion. But try unplugging the adapter with your pc off. Turn the pc back on insert the disk. Then turn the printer on and try plugging the adapter back in. If your adapter/printer are working you should receive a request to add new hardware. From this point you should be able to have it "search for the best driver for your device." If this doesn't work you may be looking about a bad adapter and or unresponsive printer. also try using a different usb port.

I updated my window vista OS.When I tried to install my Linksys Router I get the message Error 311 no wired adapter detected


Hi,

This could be the problem with your network driver which is overwritten by driver from Windows updates.

Try to overwrite by the .ini using device manager.

Get the compatible ethernet driver from your computer manufacture web site if dont have one.

Right click on MyComputer -> Manage -> Device Manager(expand the tree on the left side)

Under Network Adapters choose the ethernet wired adapter -> Update driver -> Choose Manually the .ini from the system where you stored the driver and update it.


Hope it will work fine

Realtek 8201BL chipset is the network drivers you will need. You should be able to find this online. When you do download the drivers, be sure to download the 64 bit drivers for your systems or you will run into further problems.

Good Luck

You need to use a category 5 Ethernet cable, not a standard phone cord. A Cat5 cable has 8 wires, where a phone cord only has 4. Surprising that you got anything to print. Look at the connector to verify that it has 8 connecting pins. It is also wider than a phone connector plug. You need to plug the printer into a Ethernet Hub or Switch which in turn connects to your ethernet (network) card or port on the computer. It will most likely not work if you plug it directly into your computer.

Does BT mean Bluetooth? Wireless printers are Ethernet, not Bluetooth.

Does the printer have a USB connection? If so, install the software, reboot then plug in the USB cable.

Hi i've got a plustek 7200 scanner and its causing a usb power overload on my p.c. can i repair it ?


USB ports operate in pairs from a usb host controller. Normally these pairs of ports are side by side (ie parallel to one another along their longest side) each pair of ports can onlhy be supplied with a limited amount of current.

You can try either plugging the scanner into a port that has nothing in its adjacent pair OR

You can buy a powered USB hub that will be able to sustain the current required for your scanner
