Right click on my computer icon click on property then hardware->device manager then you can see all driver list.
Then fine network adapter and right click on wireless network adapter driver if it is disable then you can see red X sign on it.
If it is not listed then you need to install driver.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Just bought acer Z5700 but i have to plug the cable into the router. i thought this product was wi fi what am i doing wrong ?


You probably never enabled the wireless card ..Go to network folder and start the wireless connection ..In there select to connect wireless and teh card will enable the wireless and will show available networks after ..
Also check in the device manager to see if the wireless card is proper installed ..if it is not ..just download and install the drivers from support site ..or install them from the recovery partition or from the disk if you have one .
to get into device manager .click right on computer icon ..select properties than device manager ..In there look for wifi card ..click right on it and select enable ..If it is in yellow it means it has no driver ..and try to click right on it and select update driver ..
Also see that it may have a button for the wireless to be enabled on it ..Im not sure but it may be something similar to laptops..just a button needed to be pressed in order to enable the wireless card without any other intervention ..If the card is enabled it will appear in the tray from task bar (right area ) where all active programs appear ..Right click on it ...and select to show networks ..and select yours and connect ..

I have a Dell desktop aio. Its model is Inspiron 19. Is there a button you have to press to get on WIFI? Thank you


Usually a wireless card does not come with a desktop model, but if you are sure you have a wireless card then follow these steps to determine if it is enabled.

Instructions for XP:

1. Click on Start
2. Click on Settings
3. Click on Network Connections and check to see if there are any connection called "wireless" if so then right click on it and make sure it is enabled. Once enabled double click on the icon and you should be able to view wireless network within range

For Windows 7 or Vista

1. Click on the Start button
2. Click on Control Panel
3. Click on Network and Sharing Centre
4. Click on Set up a new connection or network (from here you will be able to connect to a wireless network if you have a wireless card)

Hope this helps

Thanks

Hi there,
First of all you need to see two things in the system 1. Drivers 2. Wireless button Light
1. If the drivers are installed you will see wireless icon in the taskbar bilalseham.jpg
if its not available you can check two things 1. Drivers are installed properly 2. Either its enable or disable
You will see the drivers by right clicking my computer>Manage> Device Manager Right click my Network Places> Properties> wireless network connection right click and select Enable
2. Wireless Button Light Infront of the laptop where you see the Audio Jacks and You see two white buttons (Right one is Wireless Enable/Disable Button) when its Disabled you will not see any light When Enabled you will see Orange light Blinking or stable. Press once and it should get enabled. and if you have installed Launch Manager you will also see notification on screen that WIRELESS ENABLED OR WIRELESS DISABLED
Follow above steps and you will be able to see the wireless connection,
Drivers Link: Wireless LAN Driver ( Atheros) Wireless LAN Driver (Broadcom)
If you require more assistance feel free to reply to this post

I have problems with my Dell wireless. I tried tried to install Linksys wireless. Now the linksys has been installed on my desktop. But i dont see any wireless networks on the systrayit is not connecting...


First--does your Dell have wireless capability? Most new computers do.
Next, is there a wireless switch that you must turn on--on the computer case?
Next--there is a Fn-Special function key combo that will turn on your wireless card. Did you press that combo?
Now look in you network connections--is there a wireless connection there and is it enabled?
You can also check in the device manager to see if the wireless card (under network devices) is there and is functioning. You may have to install or update the drivers.
Once you have installed or enabled the wireless device, you will see a wireless icon in the system tray.

Wireless card wn5301a not working. installed in an xp machine 1.7GHz P4, 1G ram can see wireless networks & allows me to enter network key, but fails to connect


Is this a new card you've installed or have you reinstalled the OS?

First verify that the card is enabled. Go to control panel, network connections and select wireless. If the button says Enable, click it and your card should communicate.

If there's no wireless setup to enable check the driver:

Go to control panel, select system, hardware, device manager, network adapters and select your wireless card. Then run the troubleshooter to get the card to work.

If the hardware isn't there to be selected, you don't have a driver installed for that card. Go out to the manufacturer's website and install it.

Can't find wireless networks


According to the specs for your computer, it has a wireless card.
If the wireless driver is installed you will see it in Device Manager and it should be working and enabled. If not you will need to install the driver for the wireless card.
If it is installed and working you need to configure the wireless card to the wireless router's settings, (eg. the SSID, and the WAP or WEP encryption settings etc. so it can communicate with the wireless router).
