Are you saying your wireless controller on your laptop/desktop cannot be detected?

I would check in Device Manager to see if the card is displayed.

1. Right Click on "MY COMPUTER" and select "PROPERTIES"
2. Go to the "HARDWARE" tab and select "DEVICE MANAGER"
3. Scroll down to "NETWORK ADAPTERS" and expand the component
4. Do you see your wireless network adapter? If so, does it have a "RED X" on it? You might need to enable it by right-clicking on it and selecting "ENABLE". If it has no "RED X" you might need to reinstall it using the original network drivers that came with your computer.
5. If you don't see your wireless network adapter do you see a "YELLOW QUESTION MARK"? If so, expand that to see if you see an unknown device that shows it's a network adapter. If so, you need to reinstall it using the original network drivers that came with your computer.
6. If you reinstalled your network drivers and still it's not working it's possible that the wireless adapter itself is better or you have some system related problem.

This is a preliminary set of troubleshooting steps. I would need to know the results of the above procedures and some additional information. Please let me know if I can assist any further.

Wireless on laptop not active, switch not working


First, go to device manager and see if it was detected. Then, go to the properties and check out to see if it is working.

Next, go to command line by typing cmd in the run dialogue box and type ipconfig /all

If you get a mac address from the network card, then go ping 127.0.0.1 and see if TCP/IP is installed correctly.

If the device manager detects the card, and when you ping 127.0.0.1 and get a response, then the problem isn't the actual wireless card.

If this happens, do a windows system restore to when it was working. Then, if you have to, do a destructive system restore. If it still doesn't detect the card, then the problem is with the wireless card and it needs to be replaced.

Contact the laptop manufacturer to see where the closest repair depot is.

If you have done all of these and still can't get the wireless activemore than likely the ping the mac address of the Just go to command line and type ipconfig /all
