Question about Toshiba (PA3212U) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

My wireless adapter suddenly stopped working; it can no longer detect wireless networks, and I don't know how to turn it back on. It was that the "adapter is not connected" or something to that affect (I don't have it in front of me now) and only suggests I plug in a ethernet cable to solve the problem (which I don't have). How do I get my wireless back?? I would greatly appreciate any advice you can give me!!

One way to do it is to "disable" then "enable" the wireless adapter in the Control Panel.

[Start] [Control Panel] [Network Connections]

Find the icon for the wireless adapter and right-click on it.
Select [Disable]
Right-click again and select [Enable]

Please add a comment to let us know if that worked for you.

Hi, My Wireless adapter -Belkin 802.11b is stopped working all of a sudden. There used to be a green light on the adapter when it is plugged in to my laptop, now there is no light. My Dell Latitude...


First check whether the adapter is working or not?
In the device manager you are able to detect the adapter, that is a good sign.
When you go to the adapters properties, does it say working properly,
If it is , then you just need to connect to the wireless network and the light will lit up

Wireless adapter has suddenly stopped working.


First unplug your adapter and boot your computer. It wouldn;t hurt to reboot it once as well. This should clear out any settings. When it has fully booted up only then insert the adapter into a different usb port. If it recognizes it and works it can indicate a usb problem.

If it finds it but doesn't connect a adapter problem. You can uninstall it and reinstall the drivers and it might work. If not replace. If it does nothing then its died on you and your adapter needs to be replaced.

Most adapters and home network units (wifi routers etc) only last for 1-2 years before they act up or die on you. Very annoying and can be expensive. I have a stack of wifi routers where the wifi isn;t reliable but the rest works. And a drawer full of various wifi adapter that are detected but not connected and a few just plain dead ones. All of them seem to fail at about the same time after purchase.

Intel PRO/Wireless is turned off and I need help turning it on.


Hi,
just go to Network Connection >>right click Wireless Adapte>>Enable.
if doesn't work try to uninstall the Wireless NIC from the Device Manager, go to Device Manager>>Network Adapter(expand)>>Right click on wireless adapter>>uninstall.
once done, click on Action Menu on the top and click on Scan for hardware changes. It would automatically detect the wireless card.
then try to use it, it should work fine :)

Do you still have this problem? If so, please be more specific.
What do you mean, the pc can detect the network (router) but I can no longer connect to the router. ?
