Internal Wireless Adapter for eee 900 device not listed

Until last week my wireless on my brand new eee pc was running like a champ, however sometime over the weekend I noticed that find wireless network was missing from the Network Connections window(Windows XP SP3) I went into device manager and the Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter is no longer listed. So I reinstalled the device (software only since it is internal) and it installed as Atheros AR50...Adapter #2 and I still have no options for wireless connections. If I boot to safe mode I can see 3 entries for each network adapter, the adapter itself, a Deterministic Network Enhancer Miniport, and a Packet Scheduler Miniport for each one accept that the original wireless adapter is missing, but there still are entries for the deterministic and packet scheduler for it.

    Machine is 2 days old. Wireless was working last night. Today there is no light whatsoever on the front panel. No entry in the system devices for a wireless and Fn F2 does nothin. Reinstalling the driver gave an error about the device missing and died.

Try Fn+F2 to enable the wireless.

As for the multiple entries in device manager, I'd delete the #2 version

I want ssid for idea net setter wireless adapter


A SSID is the name that identifies your wireless network. A wireless adapter connected to a computer will not have a SSID. Your wireless router will have one. If your setting up a new wireless network then you will want to look for the SSID with the brand name of your router or ISP name plus the last 4-5 digits of the wireless router serial number located on a sticker on the device.

Recently my pls300 adapter stopped providing my computer internet signal and all the lights are flashing on the unit though only one computer is plugged in, i tried everything even with technical support...


I had the same problem few weeks ago.
After purchasing a new powerline adapter (from another brand), I decided to open the PLE300 to see where the problem is.
It is important to say that, before the adapters stopped working, the POWER ON light had faded until it turns off on both devices.
I didn't care so much also because the link between both PLE300 and PLS300 continued to work.
The Linksys uses a particular configuration (using a TNY174PN integrated circuit) to obtain the proper voltage for the internal components.
I'm quite sure that a damage in the internal power supply is the cause of my problem and, so, I started to check all electrolytic capacitors near that component (in the data sheet [http://dalincom.ru/datasheet/TNY176PN.pdf] is reported that the capacitors are used to limit the output current).
Without the schematic diagram is hard, but i hope to find the solution.

Please follow the mentioned step to check if the Wireless card is installed properly

Cannot install software for RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter


Did you check the Hardware Compatibility List to make sure that it would work on those computers? Unfortunately, not all brands work together and you should always check to make sure whatever your buying will work with the PC & Operating System you're using.

Can't get my 2 wire wireless adapter working


Your about the third person in the last two weeks I have had the joy of getting these to work. Their support site is terrible.

Do you have the drivers in a seperate folder on your hard drive? Make sure the installation wizzard is pointing to it when it installs the drivers.

Make sure you have the right model of network card too. You will have to match it by the pictures.

If it's too big of a headache I would take it back and get something more reliable. Linksys doesn't make you jump through a lot of hoops to get it to work.

Lost signal


Saltypup77:
check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.

Try going to the usb and the wireless adapter in device manager, properties. And make sure that the computer does not shut them off to save power.
Please let me know how you make out.
thanks

ok look in device manager down the list to your wireless card and see if it is listed, if so check that there is not a red cross on it, if so right click and select enable. if a yellow exclamation mark driver not recognised with card. If it is listed and you are unable to enable it restart the pc and press F2 or DEL to enter your bios and on the peripherals menu, see if the wireless controller(if it is built in card) is enabled. If non of the above works, then the code 10 would normally be refering to a faulty peice of hardware.
