Question about PC Laptops

Laptop won't detect wireless connection (but does detect others)

I am working on a computer with a WirelessLAN PRISM3 IEEE802.11b WM168 installed. I recently reinstalled Windows - prior to this reinstall the wireless connection worked fine. Now, it is only picking up certain connections. My home is close to a school so I can get their wireless signal - this computer will detect it and work fine. However, the wireless in my home is not detected by the computer (Airlink 101 802.11G wireless router tried without security as well as with wep). There are several other laptops in the home that all detect my home connection without any problems. Please help!

    Wireless does not connect to main computer. The indicator light flashes rapidly all the time.



    Done all you have suggested, the only new thing we have done is insert a new optic drive

    Same problem. I re installed the driver, but it didn't help. So... it's a good thing I'm still under warranty.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Hi there,
First of all you need to see two things in the system 1. Drivers 2. Wireless button Light
1. If the drivers are installed you will see wireless icon in the taskbar bilalseham.jpg
if its not available you can check two things 1. Drivers are installed properly 2. Either its enable or disable
You will see the drivers by right clicking my computer>Manage> Device Manager Right click my Network Places> Properties> wireless network connection right click and select Enable
2. Wireless Button Light Infront of the laptop where you see the Audio Jacks and You see two white buttons (Right one is Wireless Enable/Disable Button) when its Disabled you will not see any light When Enabled you will see Orange light Blinking or stable. Press once and it should get enabled. and if you have installed Launch Manager you will also see notification on screen that WIRELESS ENABLED OR WIRELESS DISABLED
Follow above steps and you will be able to see the wireless connection,
Drivers Link: Wireless LAN Driver ( Atheros) Wireless LAN Driver (Broadcom)
If you require more assistance feel free to reply to this post

I need for my compaq presario v6000.


You can get the wireless drivers in the laptop itself. U need to type in the start search as recovery manager and when the window is opened, click on the advanced options and select the option hardware driver installation. Search for the sound driver and select it and it get re-installed. If this doesnt work try to go to hp.com and select support and drivers and enter the product number of the laptop and follow the onscreen instructions.
Thanks and Regards

Wireless connection


If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on.
Did you get the wireless hub?
Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected.
You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services

My Laptop stopped detecting wireless connections


Just double check that you have'nt accidently dissabled it by way of a shortcut key or switch on the front of the laptop in some cases. If not go to network connections, then locate your wireless network card and see if it says connected, if not right click and select connect. If still not responding, go to my computer>properties>hardware> device manager and go down the list to network adapters, click on it and see if there is an exclamation mark on it, if so there is a driver problem. If not right click on it, select uninstall, then restart your pc and let windows find it again and install drivers and try connecting to your network again.
