Use the realtek fast ethernet adaptor, it is much more reliable and is a faster connection.

My gateway profile 5 will not install the network driver. 1394 net adapter is installed but doesn't connect me to the internet.


1394 is NOT your Network adapter... you need to go to device manager and look there for any "Network Adapter" then right click and "Update Drivers". Your network card will have a "Name" or say PCI network device or the like. Thats the driver you need to find and install. Hopefully it is on your drive somewhere.

Dont know how to install wireless net gear for wireless ant.


The instructions are on the CD that should have come with your adapter. Few companies supply anything in print now; the manual is usually in a pdf file.

Put the CD in and start the installation program. It will probably start automatically, in fact. The program will guide you through whatever steps you need to follow. Usually it's just a matter of installing the required drivers, maybe restarting your system, then plugging in the adapter.

Once the adapter is installed, you run the connection software, pick your network from the list it will show you, enter any security passphrase your network requires, and you're wirelessly connected. You may also need to configure wireless operation on your router if that hasn't been done yet.

No Local Connection Icon / No broadband connection


Have you checked the Device Manager to see if the Ethernet adapter is even listed, or if it is does it have a warning symbol on it for Ethernet Controller? Use Windows Help to get to Device manager if you are not sure how to. It could be that your Ethernet Controller (Local Area Connection) is disabled in your BIOS as well. Look there to see if it is, or Load Defaults option in BIOS and Save Changes, as that will enable the Ethernet Controller by default if it is working.

Installed XP Pro and system doesn't recognize network adapter


Hi,
Whenever you format a laptop, you always need to install the drivers for the chipset, audio, graphics, wifi, LAN etc
Click on this link and, from the drop down menu, choose pronet81266 for wifi and the LAN one at the bottom:

It sounds like you need to reinstall the driver for the Realtek network interface card (NIC). I recommend accessing the Gateway web site to find the model number of the laptop, and then download the driver for the Realtek NIC. This should restore the functionality.

Usb adapter will not connect to wireless router


Do you mean the USB connector for the wireless router won't plug into the PC, or that you're trying to plug some kind of adapter into the router, as it sounds; though you haven't made a complete sentence.

Ask again, in your choice of category between: your exact model of wireless router or your exact model of USB adapter.

We have windows XP desk top. Can't install the drivers for the DWA-111 but the router works fine.


What specific error message/s does your computer prompt when you trying to install the wireless USB adapter? Since your running Windows XP you can skip on "run the CD first", try uninstalling all the componets for the adapter then restart the computer, when the computer is booted up properly insert the USB adapter(preferably used the USB port on the back of your desktop for maximum power). When the found new hardware wizard pops up, choose install software automatically(make sure that the setup CD for the USB adapter is already loaded on the CD-ROM drive then hit next.
If the installation proceeds click on finish a bubble should appear on the lower right hand side of your dekstop screen(syatem tray) prompting you that one or more wireless network is being detected, click the baloon and check if your network will show up on the list.

Emachine model T3302 desktop ethernet question


Hi,

The "Realtek RTL 8139/810X family fast Ethernet NIC card" is a wired networking device. What you need is a WiFi Networking which can either be a PCI card (you need to open the PC and physically mount it inside) or perhaps the easiest, is to get a USB WiFi. There are so many brands, models and versions available and just about any would work. You need to verify though that the USB WiFi is compatible with your daughter PC's operating System (XP or Vista). Some known good brands are LinSys, DLink, NetGear. Some models/versions are simple gadgets that they look like a thumb/flash drive while others have a USB cable with a tabletop mount/rack/cradle.

Such can be bought from any computer shoppe/store. Most models come with an instruction/installer/driver CD that you need to run first before plugging in the WiFi USB.

If you already have an existing DSL account that connects to the Realtek, you would also need to get a Wireless AP/Router. It would probably be easier if you get a match pair (same brand)

If this is a completely new DSL WiFi setup, you need to get in touch with any WiFi Provider in your area. Most would provide a free USB WiFi Adapter if you subscribe to them so there would be no need to buy the USB WiFi adapter nor the Wireless AP/Router.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
