    I am using a laptop not a desktop....it is still saying I have no wireless device. The wireless internet worked fine all along and then a couple of days ago it stopped. I contacted my isp and they said it has to do with the laptop not with their service. I really wish someone could help me fix this problem :-(

Since this is a desktop, wireless devices are not standard. Did you install one? If you did, is it inside the computer? If it is, make sure it is completely in the slot inside the computer and hasn't come loose.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

I have internet connection but cannot access internet


Bluetooth connections allow devices to connect without the use of wires or cables.
Some users of the Sony Vaio laptop computer have encountered problems with the connection of Bluetooth devices with their computer.

The problem lies with turning on the Vaio's Bluetooth function.
This is turned on through the computer's Wireless Switch Settings manager.

The icon for this is in the system tray in the taskbar when the computer is first purchased.
Double-click the "Wireless Switch Settings" icon in the system tray of the taskbar.

It is a a blue-green icon with "LAN" in one corner and "B" in the other.
Check the "Enable Bluetooth Device" setting in the Bluetooth Device section.

Click "OK."

If the device was already enabled, change the wireless LAN from "2.4GHz" to "5GHz" because, as the warning message should say, using the 2.4GHz wireless LAN and the Bluetooth device can make the connection unstable.

Click the "Apply" button after the appropriate boxes are checked to activate the Bluetooth signal. A blue light should come on near the computer's on/off switch for the Wi-Fi radio.

Click "OK." Another dialog box should appear explaining that the Wireless Switch Settings icon should now be in the taskbar.

Use this icon if you need to turn off or on the Bluetooth device in the future.

Where is the switch to conect to wireless broadband


hi, not all desktops have built-in wifi, though some do, depending on your os: click "start" (bottom left) - right click "my computer" (xp) "computer" (vista) - click "manage" - click "device manager" all the devices will show up near the middle you should find "network adapters" - click the "+" sign to expand it - the local area wired network should say: lan or 10/100 if you have a wifi installed and configured, it should say wireless etc. - if that's there, go to "start" "control panel" "network connections" here you should see the wifi connection - right click on the wifi - click "enable" if it is disabled. then click "view available wireless networks" choose the connection - enter the password if secured - connect. peace, abz

Hi, I can suggest you to add your device manually.... Please you try this make sure that your computer is able to detect other bluetooth devices and also that your printer is turned on.

How to add device manually:
Click on start > click "device and printers"
When the windows is opened, on top you can find a button that says "add printer" from there just follow the steps.

Please let me know if you need more help. and also vote if you think this solution might help others:) Thank you:)

The microsoft wireless mouse stopped working after a power failure. I get a message that says the USB device is not there. But I cannot navigate my computer w/o the mouse


The Microsoft wireless mouse comes with a wireless receiver, right? Before you do anything, the first thing that you can try is to replace the batteries with fresh ones.

If same problem occur, try to connect the wireless receiver into different USB ports of the computer. Then check if your wireless receiver and mouse has a connect button. If it does have connect buttons, briefly press the connect button on the receiver, then hold down the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. Then release the connect buttons.

If you get the same problem, hold down both connect buttons (receiver and mouse) at the same time for 5 seconds.

Last, try to connect the wireless receiver into different computer. If you get the same problem, send the receiver and mouse to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

Dimension e520 - disconnected computer to get it repaired. Now trying to hook everything back up. Have wireless in the house, but can't get on the internet. Says needs to be hooked up to local area...


components of a home network include some kind of service (broadband or dial up) a modem, a router (wire or wireless) and computers.

If the computers are wireless, you use a wireless router. You can mix wire and wireless, obviously..

If you do this, the routers should be peer to peer (dont use the up link on the downstream device. ) One device must be plugged into the modem ... on that device, use the uplink.

If you are looking for a software package to manage your network magic, free to download and evaluate, After the free period you pay $ or continue to use the package but with fewer features.

NM is excellent with diagonostics, device sharing, security and tacking intruders as well as a lot of other things. I use the paid pro version.

I have a refurbished Gateway T-1625 notebook that up until now has worked fine. However, a few days ago the wireless capability just stopped working. Now, when I try to connect via wireless, it says there...


If your laptop is not "on range" this problably respond to:

1) Interference problem or bad signal.
2) Bad hardware devices (cards, routers etc)

Check your wireless router (turn it off in a while and see what happen)
Check your wireless card adaptor in your computer (My PC >> right click Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network)

Let me know how it is going!

Please don't forget to rate my help!
Thank you for using FIXYA!
Have a great day!

Wireless device not detected after i did a recovery


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.

After installing cd and following directions to install my Linksys wpm300n wireless-n pci adaptor the directions say to power down pc,installcard hookup antenna and re power up pc.but i get no futher set...


Click on Start - right-click on my computer - click on properties - click on hardware - click Device Manager

Look for your wireless adaptor in the list. Probably under Network adaptors. If it is on the list and there are no yellow question marks or Exclamation points next to it then you have successfully installed the device.

If there is an item that says unknown communication device with a yellow question mark next to it (?), put the set up disk back in and reinstall.

Most of the time when you install a new device in a pci slot, you must install the device physically in the computer first before running setup.

Wireless Lan on HP Pavilion M1000


Surely you can find out if you have a wireless network card installed . For this you can goto device manager and under network adapters look for any wireless adapter.

Heres How you check device manager.
  • Right-click My Computer then select Properties
  • Select the Hardware tab
  • Click the Device Manager button
  • Alternative solution: invoke devmgmt.msc
  • Alternative solution #2: Device Manager is part of the Computer Management, which also includes Event Viewer, Services Manager, Disk Management, as well as many other things. Right-Click My Computer then select Manage to start Computer Management, or invoke compmgmt.msc.
