Hello,

The first thing that I would advise you to do is,

Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,

(For WIndows XP)
Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties-->Hardware-->Device Manager,

select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall

Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",

This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).

(For WIndows Vista)
Right-Click on my computer Icon, go to

Properties-->>Device Manager, select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall

Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",

This will also bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).

After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.

It should connect like that.

Try this out and kindly let me know how it goes,

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Goodluck

Apple iPad 2 16 wifi has a frozen message on the screen and I cant use it. Message says ''Not enough storage" with options to 'close' or 'settings' but neither responds.


Hold down the power/sleep and the home buttons until you see a white Apple logo in the center of the screen and then releases both buttons. If it allows you to operate the iPad at this point, go right to work deleting apps to free up some space!

Atheros AR5BXB63 is gone from Device Manager


Sounds like your hardware WIFI card has failed inside the laptop. The easiest thing to do would be to get an external PCMCIA or USB WIFI card. Many of them are available for under $15.00 on ebay.
I would suggest a PCMCIA WIFI card which will leave your usb ports free.

You can check with ACER to find out what a new wifi card would cost and if they have any manuals to show how to replace it. I have had many laptops pulled apart and it is much more difficult to replace internal cards and parts than on a desktop.

Below is a link to an ebay page with laptop WIFI cards auction listings.

I hope that this information .helpful and will leave positive feedback for me if you do.

Thank You,

Brian

Can i know how do i get free internet service on samsung j 600


if the phone is equiped with a wifi wlan chip use that, if it doesn't you cant get free internet usage as the phone companies monitor "data packages" which is what phones access internet with very closely so if you attempt to use it without permission u will either be fined or charged a ridiculous amount. search google about a guy who watched a game without a data plan!
