This is usually a driver problem. If it worked previously and just stopped, then go int the device manager, uninstall the drivers and reboot. The machine will find and reinstall them. If this is a system repair/reload or if it's never worked, then you will need to download the drivers from Dell's support site. Make sure you have the proper driver. Some Dell machines will accept a driver for the network controller and show that it's working, even though it's not, ie... a Broadcom driver with an Intel card or vice versus. If this is the case, then you will need to get the model of the wireless card and search for the drivers. You can also use driverguide.com.If this doesn't correct the problem give me more info on what's going on and what you've done and we'll go from there.

Wont allow me to share my internet , its hooked up to wifi i want to run a cord to my xbox to give it internet possible?


Yes this is possible. You will need to bridge connections between your WIFI adaptor and Ethernet ports.

Navigate to Network connections, select both your WIFI adaptor and Ethernet adaptor. Now right click and select "bridge connections"

Take care!

My toshiba satelite won't connect to the internet and i get an error message saying its my network adaptors. does this mean its a software problem or will i have to physically remove and replace the...


Hello.

Test your laptop at a different location to see if any difference.

If still the network adapter, first try to update the driver by going to Device Manager, find the network adapter and select update. You'll actually be reinstalling the current driver software.

If still a problem, the network adapter would need to be physically removed and replaced.

Hope this helps.

I recommend checking the device manager of your operating system to see if the network adaptor is installed correctly. It sounds like it isn't, & therefore you need to use a different computer to go to the Acer Aspire One website, choose which model you have from the support / download page, and download the driver for your network adaptor.

Go to friend or your local public library and connect to the internet and to acer by typing www.acer.com. Click on USA radial button and click on service and support then driver download. You will be asked to select the model number of your computer and you can download all the drivers you need for it. If you download your network/wireless adapter drivers first to a flash drive you can install them on your computer, connect to the internet, and download whatever drivers you still need. Good Luck!

I?m unable to detect any wireless networks, because the WLAN adaptor hasn?t yet been activated. There is a specific ?hotkey? (function+F1) to enable the WLAN adaptor but the keyboard doesn't work anymore...


Hello shge2dope,

The wireless lan can be activated (enabled) from the control panel as follows:

•Click Start (lower left-hand of screen)
•Select Control Panel
•Select Network and sharing Center (might be called just 'Network')
•Select the wireless lan adapter and enable it

* Another way might be to select the WLAN icon in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Then right-click and select the option to enable it

Have a great day,

No wifi


You need to get a wireless adaptor your laptop did not come with wireless built in. You can get a USB adaptor or a PCMCIA adaptor. Either will work but the pcmcia adaptor will be a little faster

Have a look here

Internet adaptor


Hi,

This could be three things, first, a hardware fault, which the wireless will need to be replaced,

2) You can go into network connections through control panel and double click the wireless network to re enable.

3) Go to HP website and reinstall the wireless drivers. ( If you need the wireless adapter type, check out device manager in control panel

Wireless Problem


Kanasai, sounds like the wirless adaptor is turned off, normally this is the result of the power settings sutting it down on batteries to conserve power. you should have a FN key combination to turn it back on , for example on my ASUS its the "FN" key and the "F2" key at the same time.
Basicly you can check the device manager to see if the wireless adaptor is enabled. then look at what software manages the wirless connection
