Hi, I have a HP Compaq nx6110 with Broadcom wireless adapter, and I have a Wireless problem. I've recently reinstalled my OS, it's a Win XP SP3, and ever since my wireless adapter wont start, it...


  1. Make sure to press the WiFi button on your notebook. You should see a blue light if your WiFi adapter is on.
  2. If that doesn't work, download and install the latest version of the wireless adapter driver.

I reinstalled Vista Home Premium on my wife's Gateway laptop, but can't connect wirelessly to the router. Windows can't find the adapter (it's built in).


As you re-installed vista, you probably need to load the drivers , sometimes these are supplied as a seperate CD or you can go onto the manufacturers website and download onto a working PC and then using USB thumbdrive or write to a CD copy to the faulty machine
as we do not know the exact model i can only direct you to the support site http://support.gateway.com/support/default.aspx if you put your serial number into this site - should show you all the drivers required

One laptop cann access the internet via the dlink wireless router, the other laptop can not even see the network.


On the "other" laptop, is the wireless adapter "enabled" or "disabled" ?
Look for either a button, or a slider, or a sequence of keys ("hold down FN and press F5") to enable the wireless adapter.

Then, click Start
Click Control Panel
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Click the '+' to the left of the 'Network Devices'
Do you see the wireless adapter listed?
Is there any RED or YELLOW tags on top of the device's icon?
If so, double-click the icon, and click "Reinstall Driver".

I have Gateway MX6214 and I reinstalled a clean Windows Xp OS, then the wireless adaptor is not recognized even after installing the drivers


I'm not sure what happened but we got disconnected somehow. What you want to do, seeing as you are using another laptop, is download the software from Gateway and save it onto a cd-rom. Insert the cd rom into the gateway, open the driver and install the driver onto the laptop. This should work. If it doesn't, let me know!

RESTORE YOUR COMPUTER! This just happened to me and i looked up and tried EVERYTHING! Since my wifi button had only stopped working 2 days ago, I restored my computer to 4 days prior because I was told that sometimes without you even knowing you allow stuff to get on your computer whenever you get online which could cause your computer to turn functions off automatically. My wifi button actually stopped working after I went into a mcdonalds with my computer an used their wifi so I think me allowing their wifi onto my computer did something to it because when I took it home the button was just red altogether and it was SOOO frustrating. But as soom as I restored it, my computer came back on and a little window popped up saying "Your wifi is currently off, toggle your wifi key to turn it on/off". I was so happy! The simpliest thing that no one would ever think of.

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista


when you say the radio button does not light up, are you refering to the light on the front of the notebook?, if so you can turn the wireless on and off by the little slider switch next to the light.
