    I tried to install software for a wireless connection and recieved an error message that the network adapter could not be found. How do I correct this problem? There is an Ethernet connection but the software is not picking it up.

The first thing I'd do is go to the control panel, then select the device manager option. In there, you should see an option for the network adapters - if you open it up, the network adapters on the computer will be listed. If there's a conflict that is preventing the device from running properly, you should see an exclamation point against it.

Another possibility is that the wireless network adapter may just be turned off. In the control panel, go to Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing center. (This applies to Vista; if you are using an earlier OS, it may be different.) From there, click Manage network connections, and you should see a network adapter icon - you can click Enable to turn the device on if it is currently disabled.

You shouldnt make an entire new post for an existing posted problem. Next time I will flag...


If you can see the wireless card in your 'network connections' then this is a good sign beucase it means that it is still being detected and most likely is not suffering from a hardware problem. I cannot be sure what the problem is from what you have told me, so I will just give a few other steps that might help.
1. Make sure the wireless card is turned on. I attempted to find the manual for your model so I could find out what the function is to turn it off and on, but I couldnt find it so you will have to figure this out on your own.

2. Remove any and all antivirus/antispyware programs you may have on your computer completely. Recheck on your programs list that they are all off. Even norton occasionally blocks your entire internet connection. This probably is not what your problem is, but this will allow us to make sure this isnt a problem further down the road.

3. Make sure that windows has control over your network connection. for example, when you install a wireless USB network adapter, it normally installs extra software you do not need, and then takes control over the wireless connection. In this case, it might be some software that came with the Laptop. Make sure this is removed, but try to keep the driver.

4. Dont just turn your router off and on, reset the entire thing so it is on default settings. By design, routers come out of the box without any security settings on and should be able to be plug and play with your wireless card.

5. You probably already did this, but double check those connections, make sure all of your wires are working correctly and none of them have been chewed on by a dog or something.

6. If none of these things help, then provide more details on THIS page, do not make a new post. maybe throw in some screen shots or something.

If you are using the Windows own Wireless connection wizard (Wireless Zero Configuration service aka WZCSVC) this is designed to recheck every 20-30 mins for another connection this is your problem disable the service here download this tweak.

Then download and use the laptop NIC's own software to search for your Uni server and then connect using the WEP or PSK, this will solve your problem then create a profile in the NIC connection software and it will never forget.

Cannot connect to internet

Try these two methods below.

Method 1: Check your local connections at network and sharing center, if there are two enabled or active networks. If there is two active networks, click on Local Area Connection Link (for windows 7) on one of the active networks and disable it. Now right click the internet icon on your taskbar and troubleshoot problem. If it doesn't resolve the problem, you will have an option to resolve the problem as Administrator.

Method 2: Go to local area connection status on an active network, click properties then double click on internet protocol version 4 and make sure that "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are checked then click OK.

If it doesn't solve your problem. Please contact me so that I can assist you more further.

Acer doesn't connect to protected wireless internet

It looks like you've keyed it in once, but you keyed it in wrong, so the system thinks the security key is there.

Which Operating System?

You can try connecting to another secured network and see if it asks for a security code, then try going back to your network.

Try getting to the security code by going to the wireless network connection and highlighting your network then click properties.

Improve the experience for everyone by voting!

The solution I'm suggesting works in my business (LAN installations) about 95% of the time. I trust that it will work for you.

Let's see if I can help you.

Begin by turning on your computer and your router

? Make sure your service provider has activated your account and services on the subscribed line. Please check with your service provider to confirm this.
? Make sure that you are using the latest drivers. You can download the latest driver from Driver Downloads Database.
? Make sure that you have entered the right username and password (case-sensitive) as given by your service provider. For example, in Australia: user@bigpond; in NZ:
? Open Internet Explorer;
? Click on 'Tools';
? Click on 'Internet Options';
? Click on 'Connections';
? Click on 'Setup'
? Click on 'I want to set up my Internet connections manually . . .';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'I connect through a local area network (LAN);
? Clock on 'Next'
? Click on 'Next' [This is not an error];
? Click on 'No';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'To connect to the Internet immediately . . .; and,
? Click on 'Finish'.

That should have you online. However, if it doesn't get you connected, do the following: Click on tools again. Click on 'Diagnose Connection Problems' and follow the instructions.

The last choice is to use the Setup Wizard. It seldom works for me but you might have more luck than poor me. Here are the instructions:

The Connect to the Internet wizard will guide you through the steps of setting up an Internet connection.

Open the Connect to the Internet wizard by:

• Clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button
• Click on Control Panel.
• In the search box, type network,
• Click "Network and Sharing Center"
• Click Set up a new connection or network
• Then double-click "Connect to the Internet".

All the best

Unidentfied network is connected, no internet access, i see a chair between the internet acces and the laptop. tried to reboot everything several times, turned off firewalls, nothing helps/

That unidentified network, have you connected to that before and browsed the internet? Just because you connect to a network, doesn't mean that network is setup to allow internet access. It could be a simple fact that you need to connect to a different network.

My hp dv 4 -1123us can not connect to unsecured network


It could be possible that this network you are trying to connect to is only an access point and does not actually have an internet connection associated with it. Is this a network of yours or are you trying to piggy back on someone's? At any rate, what is your signal strength of this connection. If you are more than approximately 75 ft. away, you are not going to get a strong signal to be able to use the internet.

Network Adapter


Based on your post/description:.
1. “I am able to connect to a wireless network but am not able to connect to the internet.”
Indicates that your wireless network adapter is working since "able to connect to a wireless network". The "not able to connect to the internet" may be settings/configurations.
2. “When the computer tries to self diagnose, it says there may be a problem with one or more of the computer's network adapters
Which can only be your wired network adapter (Ethernet) but since you are not using that but your WiFi, should not make any difference.

To simplify, let’s focus on the Internet connection. Pls verify/determine that:
a. the wireless network is connected to a modem and can access the Internet;
b. the brand/model/version of the wireless Access Point/Router and its IP address;
c. the wireless security method being used by the network (WEP, WPA, MAC filter); and
d. the IP settings given by the DHCP server (which is also the router) to your PC which includes IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway & DNS Servers.

Pls post back results of a, b, c, & d that we can figure out the solution for your concern.

In the meantime, you can try right clicking on your networking icon (bottom right side) and click on repair.

Good luck and kind regards.
