Question about Computers & Internet
My wireless connection is not working. I have changed the adapter and I have used different adapters and they will not install. I have 2 of the same laptops and one works fine with all the adapters. I don't understand what happened can you help?

The information provided is not sufficent to suggest or provide any solution. However the best one could do is try to isolate the issue. Good that you have tried the adapters on both the laptops. however some questions needs answers
- isnt there an inbuilt wireless card in your laptop ?
- what type of wireless adapter are you using USB / PCI ?
- Have you checked if the laptop shows the adapter under the Hardware/Device manager ?
If everything is checked, then its better to contact your laptop vendor to isolate the issue - if its with the laptop.

sometimes the wirless network card can be at fault here but windows if its had a bad virus can somtimes be to blame without seeing the problem for myself i can only submise its the later so heres what to try the easy things first switch of the modem router and laptop for ten mins then turn them all back on see if problem is resolved then if not update all the drives in your laptop use a ethernet cable to do this if this fails and still not resolved then you can try some of the harder things first if have the restor disks then resore the laptop back to factory (remember to back up everything in it or you will loss it all) still not resolved then you will need to replace the wirless card (90% of the time its windows only a few times i have had to do this) you can get to it via an acces pannel at the bottom and there will be info on how to and a guide with the new one or you can take it to a pc shop and they will charge you about 25 including labour for the whole replacemnt i hope this is of some hel-p to you
