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.

My intel wireless adapter displays error code 10 and this device cannot start.


Hi,

Suggest you reinstall the driver from your drivers cd that you got with your laptop. Alternatively get driver from the manufacturer's website.

If you still get this issue, then usually points to a hardware failure

Make sure that you have already tried switching the PC off and back on again.

As a last resort, you may want to recover your pc back to its factory setting with your recovery disks and if still not detected, almost certainly a hardware problem

Hope this helps

I hava a hp 13" laptop that wont show wireless option in the internet properties. I have a wireless Lan Mini PCI card, but it is not being detected. Is there away to re enable the wireless?


Hi. Please check first if your computer was able to detect the device. You can look for this device in control panel then click system then click device manager. Your wireless adapter should be present under network adapters. f computer was able to detect the wireless adapter. Try to turn off/on the wireless switch. Usually, wireless switch is located infront of the laptop or on the side. You can also try pressing Fn + F5 key to disable/enable wireless network card.

My broadcom wireless lan adapter for windows vista not detected in device manager and hp wireless assaistant not working.


You can run HP update to download and install drivers on your PC/Laptop, or run Microsoft update too.

Your HP PC came with a tool called Recovery Manager, Click the vista start menu and in the search bar type (Recovery Manager) without the parenthesis and it should display programs like RECOVERY DISC CREATION and RECOVERY MANAGER , please select the RECOVERY MANAGER an if you have VISTA USER ACCOUNT CONTROL turned on you will have to allow the program to run.
OK, once program launch, select the advance Options and click on HARDWARE DRIVER RE-INSTALLATION and click next. follow the screen instructions to re-install the driver or drivers.
Make sure you are not running any other program when using recovery manager.
GOOD LUCK
