I have an acer aspire 7720 i changed the hard drive recently installed all the drivers buut the wireless connection refuses to work ive


Hi

when you said that you have installed a new hard drive
did you use the recovery disks to install the operating system

have you checked in device manager to see if the wireless driver is installed
please check under network adapters
if it is in there but not working you could un install it
restart laptop and windows may install it correctly on start up

or you could look on the website for a new wireless driver
also please make sure that you have enable the wireless switch


www.acer.com


support/downloads
find your model
then scroll down for the wireless driver
download it
install it
restart the laptop

good luck
many thanks

I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop. I recently reformatted it. Now It does not recognize wireless connections. I cant connect to the net Can anyone help?


When you reinstalled Windows, Windows probably did not include a driver for your wireless adapter. A driver tells Windows how to interface with a certain device, such as a wireless adapter. You can easily download the driver online and install it. Once installed, restart the computer and you should again have the ability to connect to wireless networks.
I've gone to the Dell website for you and found the correct driver. Please visit this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&catid=5&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False
On that website, I would first try downloading the first driver on the list. If that doesn't enable your wireless after a reboot, try the other ones. After the correct driver is installed, your wireless will be working again.

No wireless adapter detected ad wireless button ot turning on


First u need to make sure ur adapter is installed correctly.
1. Click on Start-->Run-->Type in "devmgmt.msc"
which will open device manager.
Under device manager , u should find network adapters, make sure ur adapter is listed under it without any yellow exclamation mark or red cross which would mean that the drivers are not installed correctly or the adapter is disabled. In this case u need to reinstall the drivers via the CD.
2. Secondly u need to goto start-->run-->type in "msconfig"
which will open the system configuration window. Now under the "startup" TAB. Find the service for ur wireless card and disable it by unchecking it and then apply the settings and OK.
Reboot computer once
3. After reboot, goto start-->run-->type in "services.msc"
It will open the services windows . Find an option for wireless zero configuration . Rt click on it and start it.
4. Goto start-->run-->type in "ncpa.cpl"
It will open network connections window.
Rt click on Wireless network conection and enable it .
If it is already enabled , then rt click on it again and click on "View available wireless connections"
It will give u a list of all the wireless connections available in ur area.
Click on the one which is ur connection and then click on connect.
It might ask u for a wireless key if it is a secure connection. Enter the key and it should all work fine.

Wireless network detected not listed in view available wireless


Two things. First go into Device Manager and make sure the driver is loaded. Right click on Network Adapter, then right click on your wireless card. you can update driver, remove driver and let plug n play pick it back up, or if looks like no problems then leave it be. second, did you set it up going thru the Wireless Network Wizard..Its under Accessories>comminication in Windows XP.(You didn't indicate which OS you are using). What is probably happening is you are not quite set up correctly and your WEP is blocking you from connecting because the computer does not have your WEP key....if you have any questions let me know.

Wifi connectivity problem


It's possible that the driver for your wireless adapter is already installed. Check under Device Manager > Network Adapters if there is anything pertaining to your wireless adapter. Make sure that your wireless adapter (under Device manager > Network adapters) does not have any red X or yellow question mark.

Red X indicated that it's disabled , while yellow question mark will suggest that you need to update the driver. If your wireless adapter is working properly under Device Manager > Network adapters then you will need to configure it's utility for wireless connection.

If you are running windows XP, look for the wireless icon in the lower right side of your task bar and use it to connect to your preferred network.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Wireless connection disapeared from computer


Hello!

I am not sure exactly where you are checking for Wireless connections.

Anyhow, now a days we are hearing many Wireless adapter missing from Device manager issues.

Please get back to us with the Brand name of your laptop, OS installed.

Also check in Device manager for Wireless adapter.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.


Expand + Network adapter and check if the Wireless adapter is listed there or not.

If it is not listed there, then the issue is with the Wireless adapter itself.

This is most comon issue in HP COMPAQ notebooks.

if you are not aware of the Wireless adapter under + Network adapters in Device manager, then get back to us with the complete information under + Network adapter.

So thatI can help you in better way
