Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have a Emachine and used to be able to surf the web with the wireless adapter, now I can no longer connect and it just seems like the adapter disappeared. It is no longer showing up in the device manager. Could someone help me. I would like to be able to get back online.
If you feel comfortable opening your tower up and checking if the adapter card is still seated into the pci slot, that is the first thing I would do. Turn the computer off. Unplug it from the socket. Open the case and find the card - it's easy to find with the antenna sticking out of the back. Just use enough pressure to be sure it is down all the way. Put things back together and turn it back on. If it is recognized you'll be prompted for a driver cd (or Windows will install its own driver) and you'll be off and surfing. If it doesn't recognize it, the adpater card is aparently defective and needs to be replaced. (It wouldn't hurt to check the adapter's support site on the web - assuming you have an alternative way for connecting to the web.)
