You will need to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a Red

X or a yellow Exclamation or Question mark !?
you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled.

If you are trying to connect through a modem/router the driver should have come with a disc provided by your ISP internet service provider or your motherboard disc

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X right click install drivers

You only need to do the following if you cant install the driver

Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in biosRestart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to

press to enter set up (BIOS) usually the Delete or F2 key press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys scroll to intergrated peripherals.

Look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press ENTER make sure its enabled

wifi
Most new laptops are equipped with all the components necessary to go online wirelessly to account for the increasing popularity of Wi-Fi Internet.

If you find that you are not able to connect to any wireless networks on a laptop, take a few basic troubleshooting steps on your own before having the laptop serviced.

In all likelihood, you will be able to restore your laptop's wireless functionality and be browsing Wi-Fi Internet in no time.

Enable the wireless card by pressing the radio button, typically located near the top of the keyboard.

Press the radio button until a light illuminates indicating that your wireless card has been enabled and is ready to go online wirelessly.

Test your connectivity once again; if there is still no wireless access, it is time to check for a possible issue with your wireless card.


Navigate to the computer's device manager by opening the "Start" menu and either clicking "Device Manager" from the "Control Panel" window or right-clicking "My Computer," clicking "Properties," and choosing "Device Manager" from the "Hardware" tab, depending on what version of operating system you use.


Look for the wireless card in the Device Manager by clicking the "+" next to "Network Adapters." If you see any item labeled "Wireless Card" or "Wireless Controller," check to see if it has a "?," "X," "!" placed over the name; if it does, you will need to update the software drivers for the wireless card. Contact the manufacturer of the computer for assistance.

Attempt to connect a wireless network other than your home network. Make sure you connect to a wireless network that you are legally allowed to use, such as a free public Wi-Fi hotspot, and that you are not illegally connecting to someone else's wireless network.

If you can connect to other Wi-Fi networks, the problem is likely isolated to your home network and you will need to troubleshoot that.

If you are still can't connect to any Wi-Fi networks after following the steps above, you may need to have the laptop serviced or have its wireless card replaced.

Hi,

Most of the laptops those are the common issues Wireless are not working, what i suggest is try to renistall the Driver for the wireless card then check it in the Device Manager, if it doesn't show in Device Manager the wireless card could be faulty.

How to check Device manager.

Start->Control Panel->Device Manager

Inside Device Manager look for Network Adapter and check if your wireless card is detected.

My laptop was picking up wireless before and now it's not. What can the problem be?


Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please check if the wireless switch of the laptop is on or not. Also I would recommend you to please check if there is any bang in the device manager on the Network adapters or the wireless card is disabled.
To get into the device manager: 1) If using XP:
right click "My computer" icon and goto properties and then select Hardware from the top and then select "Device manager", check for any yellow bang or red X on the newtork adapters 2) If using Vista/Win 7
Click "Start" in search type "Device manager", hit enter Follow the above steps.

Where do I start? HP dv4000 is the worst laptop


I feel your pain....actuall am tired of rebuilding them, I feel you are lucky in one sense....your still manages to start. Try this for your wireless problems. May be short term but you never know.

Windows WiFi Fix,
Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.
Windows XP:
Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Hi, I have an Acer TravelMate 2420. And every time I install windows XP it, for some reason, cannot find the wireless network hardware. And installing the driver seems to be useless as well. Any suggestion...


Try right-clicking on My Computer, go to Manage, then go into Device Manager. Inside Device Manager's list, do you see any devices with a yellow exclamation point? If not, expand the "Network adapters" section and see what's listed. It's possible that there is no wireless adapter in that laptop (unless you're sure there is one). Another possibility is that the wireless adapter is there, but not functional, faulty, or just plain broken. If the device is there and working, it should show up in Device Manager as an installed device; if it's there, but not working, it'll show up with an exclamation point. If it's not in the list at all, it's probably broken or the laptop doesn't have a wireless card.

Wireless connection problem


Check your wireless adapter and see if its properly installed. Go to the device manager.

Right click My Computer. Click on Properties. Click Hardware tab and click on the device manager button.

If there's a yellow question mark under other devices, check if it says network controller. Download and install the correct driver for your wireless card.

Hello mccree08,

The installed network adapters can be viewed in the windows device manager which can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)

•In the Control Panel, Select Device Manager

•In Device Manager, Select 'Network Adapters'

The netgear wpn 511 adapter will appear there if it is correctly installed.

If this solution is helpful please click 'YES' by 'Was this helpful?' below.

Have a great day,
