Hi vsecrets,
need a little bit more information from you. First off, is your laptop 'seeing' the wireless card? I need you to check the device manager to see to see if there's a yellow exclamation point by the NIC and to check the driver version for it. If the driver IS missing, you need to go the manufacturer's site and download it. If it is there, still make sure there isn'[t a newer version. Let us know what you find.

How do i re-register xp? i have a model 3150hs and have used it since 2005.


You should not have post your XP product registion code.
To activate your Windows XP operating system after you have re-installed Windows XP it will ask you to Activate your Windows.
If you decide to do it later you will be given a reminder when you open Windows next time.
To activate your Windows click on Start - Activate Windows and if you are connected to the Internet you can activate the Windows automatically, otherwise you can avtivate Windows by the phone. Just follow the on screen instructions.

Says "wireless network connection adapter is disabled" but I did nothing- It just stops working :(


your wireless card and everything is fine.the problem is very clear.1> if you are using windows 7 switch over to xp or any linux based operating system.i would suggest you to switch over to windows xp sp3.there are many problems arising out of windows 7 now a days.2> do you have any antivirus software installed? if yes then check it's settings if it is terminating the connection.3> if you dont have any antivirus softeare installed,then install it because virus may prevent you to connect through wireless system and may block the operation.it will also slow down your pc and many applcations are to be found 'not responding' and it will bound you to restart the system.it may also lose some data like password and username which you need for automatic sign-ups.

Want to download wireless internet to the system it is rum by windows 2003


What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.
Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Wireless network access: 1 laptop fine, other not so much


Check the wireless card on the PC first. Go to "My Computer" then "Device Manager" and check to se if all the hardware is ok.

Use Control panel/netconnections to check to see if you still have a wireless connection and if it works. Also check "My Network Places." Try re-installing the drivers.

As a last resort....try System Restore if it's an XP or Vista system. Remember - using system restore will return the PC to an earlier time but you could lose some stuff so decide first.
