Wireless Adapter missing from Device Manager

I lose the wireless Adapter from the device manager. I read a document which directed me to get my laptop repaired and bios upgraded. Did the same. Still I lose my wifi adapter often. When I scan for hardware it says no new hardware found. If i restart after shutting down for few minutes it comes back. IS IT Coz of heating problem?

Hello

Please check whether your notebook Wireless Adapter is detected in the Notebook. To check this Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter. This will open Device Manager. Then Click on + sign next to network adapters and please check whether the wireless adapter is listed.( Broadcom or Intel Wireless Lan ) . If it is not listed then you need to install BIOS update for your notebook. After installing BIOS update it should resolve the issue. However, if the issue persists. I am afraid that you need to get your notebook repair.

All the Dv 6000, DV9000 and V6000 notebook has the manufacture defect with the Wireless adapter.

Thanks
Regards

If your device manager indicates a good network adapter, wireless and/or Ethernet, go to the Dell website, select support, drivers and download, and enter your service tag number. It will direct you to all the drivers you need to get you computer operational again. If the device manager indicates missing network adapter drivers, you will need a flash drive, a computer that can connect to the Internet, and transfer the network adapter driver to this computer.

Wireless radio control problem


Try going into the Device Manager and making sure the Wireless Adapter is enabled. Click Start > Control Panel > System. Click the Hardware tab then click the Device Manager button. Now click the Plus [+] next to Network adapters then double-click the wireless adapter which is probably the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection which will open the Properties dialog. Ensure the Device status reads, "This device is working properly" and Device usage shows "Use this device (enable)." If either the Device status or Device usage shows anything other than what is shown above, first try to change the Device usage, which should change the Device status. Now try again to use your wireless adapter. You might need to press Fn + F5 to turn the device on.

Wifi connectivity problem


It's possible that the driver for your wireless adapter is already installed. Check under Device Manager > Network Adapters if there is anything pertaining to your wireless adapter. Make sure that your wireless adapter (under Device manager > Network adapters) does not have any red X or yellow question mark.

Red X indicated that it's disabled , while yellow question mark will suggest that you need to update the driver. If your wireless adapter is working properly under Device Manager > Network adapters then you will need to configure it's utility for wireless connection.

If you are running windows XP, look for the wireless icon in the lower right side of your task bar and use it to connect to your preferred network.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Wireless connection disapeared from computer


Hello!

I am not sure exactly where you are checking for Wireless connections.

Anyhow, now a days we are hearing many Wireless adapter missing from Device manager issues.

Please get back to us with the Brand name of your laptop, OS installed.

Also check in Device manager for Wireless adapter.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.


Expand + Network adapter and check if the Wireless adapter is listed there or not.

If it is not listed there, then the issue is with the Wireless adapter itself.

This is most comon issue in HP COMPAQ notebooks.

if you are not aware of the Wireless adapter under + Network adapters in Device manager, then get back to us with the complete information under + Network adapter.

So thatI can help you in better way
