If you just installed win7 and you are having problems with an adapter on your computer that problem is usually related with the driver for that adapter and should be resolved by obtaining a proper driver for your new installed operating system.

if you computer was meant to support vista or win7 as per the manufacturer you can go to the manufacturer's website and attempt to get a driver for your wireless network adapter that works in win7. it's likely that you're manufacturer may not have that one yet but it's possible that one for vista may be out, download and install the vista driver for your wireless card and test the adapter to see if it works.

if you need help finding the driver, post back with your computer brand and model number. or simply go to the manufacturer website, go to the support area and look for driver or sofware download.

hope this helps!

Why my wifi disabled to connect


To verify the wireless network connection status, please go to the Network Connection Window. For Windows XP, Click on Start. Click on Run. Enter "ncpa.cpl" and click OK. For Windows 7 or Windows Vista, go to "Search programs and files" box. Enter "ncpa.cpl" and hit the Enter key.

If you see the wireless network connection icon is disabled in the Network Connections Window, you may double click on it to enable the connection. Should it is still disabled an no way to be enabled, you may have a AntiVirus software (for example, Kaspersky, ZoneAlarm, Trend Micro Internet Security...etc) installed in your computer and it disabled the wireless connection.

You may completely remove the antivirus software from your computer and restart the computer. Check the wireless connection can be enabled. Then you can re-install the antivirus software.

How to go to wifi


Wi-Fi technology enables wireless Internet and network access through public and private hot spots. These hot spots are widely located in homes, restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops and other businesses, so you can keep connected wherever you may travel. To connect to Wi-Fi, you must have an enabled wireless adapter on your computer. Most modern laptops and many desktops have this adapter built into the system, but many lack such capabilities. However, a wireless adapter is easily installed via USB, which allows you to connect to available networks through Windows 7.
Enable your wireless adapter. Most laptops have a hot key labeled with a radio antenna. Hold the "Fn" key and press this key to toggle wireless on or off. Desktops likely have a physical antenna on the back of your computer that is typically always on. If you don't see such a hot key or antenna, you need to acquire a USB wireless adapter. Attach the USB wireless adapter to an available USB port on your computer. Windows 7 will automatically install the necessary drivers for most adapters. If it does not, insert the CD that came with the USB wireless adapter into your drive and choose to install their drivers. Restart your computer if you do not see a wireless icon in your Windows 7 notification area. Click the wireless icon in the Windows 7 notification area and click the network name to which you want to connect. If this is your home network, the correct network will likely be the one with the strongest signal. Click "Connect" and enter the wireless security passphrase, if required. Only secured networks will ask for a passphrase, but some public networks will require browser authentication instead. Open your browser and navigate to any website. If the hot spot requires browser authentication, your website request is redirected to an information page. Follow the instructions on this page to get Wi-Fi. This may entail clicking "Accept," entering a given password or entering a cell phone number. After authentication, attempt your website again to verify accessibility. Hope this helps

Wireless not seeing internet but ethernet is


Try uninstalling the wireless adapter from the control panel. Reboot the system (although with Window 7 that shouldn't be necessary), and let it Windows auto-discover the device again. Disable/enable doesn't for Windows to re-install everything.

Hi,

You may need to enable your Wireless adapter. You can do this by going into Control Panel then network connections. You should see a "Wireless LAN" icon. If you right click on it you can choose enable and then you can browse available wireless networks and connect.

Let me know if you have any questions.
