  • jaamd Jul 14, 2008

    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.

you will see the device manager...

select network adapters on the list...

you must have the wireless card listed there...do a right click on wireless card and select properties, you will see the device status...the device status must say that "the device is working properly"
if you dont find the wireless card under network adapters then you will find it under other devices or unknown devices...or you can see an yellow exclamation mark or question mark in the device name...
it says the device driver is not installed properly...
you need to install the driver from the cd that is given by the computer manufacturer...if you dont have the cd then you need to download the drivers from the manufacturers site and install them on your computer...

if you dont find your device any where in device manager then it says that the device is not detected by your computer... in case of laptop you need to make sure that any switches for wireless card is turned ON..

It does not connect


Wireless Adapter is a device that will receive the wireless signals and will make your computer wireless adapter. without the wireless adapter you can not use the computer to connect to the wireless network. Now a days all the laptops and desktops are equipped with the built in wireless adapters.
First check whether you have a wireless adapter on your computer ?

WIN XP
Right click on MY COMPUTER ==> properties ==> Device Manager ==>
you will see Network adapter ==> under network adapter you will see the wireless adapter ==> Right clink on the wireless adapter ==> properties => Check whether it says the Device is working properly or not ?If it says working properly then that's great !

WIN VISTA/ Windows 7
Click START ==> Control Panel ==> In the right hand side at the top you will see " Classic View "
Switch to classic view ==> you will see Device Manager ==> Under Network Adapters you will find your wireless adapter listed . Right clink on the wireless adapter ==> properties => Check whether it says the Device is working properly or not ? If it says working properly then that's great !

If you do not see wireless adapter in the Device manager , then either you do not have the adapter or the wireless adapter is not working .If you see "yellow exclamation mark" on the wireless adapter, that means the drivers are not installed for the adapter or not working. Reinstall the drivers.
Once your adapter is working properly , try to connect to the wireless network.

If you are installing the external wireless adapter to the computer and if you are using Windows 2000 or Windows 98 , ME, then you will have to connect to the wireless network using the utility of that adapter.
If you are using Win XP then you can use windows to connect to the wireless network or you can use other utility.
In case of Win VISTA, you will use windows to connect to the wireless network.

My Acer 5500 saying "No wireless device". I would like to connect to wireless connection


Access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://secure3.tx.acer.com/FindSystem/FindSystem.aspx?title=Information%20About%20Your%20System

and enter the serial-number of your computer, to see if the computer was shipped with a wireless-adapter.

If not, buy either a USB Wireless Adapter, or a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter, install the software that comes with the adapter, and then connect the device.

Wireless connection: computer says device unplugged, but it's not. All the settings are correct, but still cannot connect to home network. Used to work before computer software (Win XP Media Edition) was...


Hello Michael,

Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) does not normally say cable unplugged. I think you are looking at your Local Area Network (LAN) connection. Make sure your wireless card drivers are installed, and the device is enabled.

1. Click Start
2. Right Click My Computer
3. Click Manage
4. Select Device Manager in Left Column of Newly Opened Window.

Make sure your wireless card does not have a yellow caution sign on it, and make sure your wireless card also does not have a red X. (If you when you select device manager, no devices show that right away, then it should be ok)

If there is a yellow caution sign, you may need to install drivers or your device is having some sort of issue.

If there is a red 'X' on the device, right click the device, and select enable. Again verify there is no caution sign.

Make sure your wireless radio is also turned on.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

As a reminder, if this post helps, please rate it. Thankyou.
