Want to reset an adapter or a router ? Network adapters don't usually save their configuration so there is no reset button. They are given their settings by the operating system. If they are configured to take the config from the network they broadcast a special message. A process in the router (or elsewhere in corporate networks) called DHCP sends them back the info they need.
The driver should be on the manufacturers web site. If it is a card, the manuf of the card. If it is on a motherboard, check the mainboard manuf or if a brand name Dell, Lenovo, IBM, etc. check that site.
The WPA or WEP encryption key is configured/enabled in the router's wireless settings. The router's SSID, WPA or WEP etc. needs to be configured in the laptop's wireless card settings fir the laptop's to communicate with the wireless router.
Please click on this link for information on how to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and configure the wireless card in the laptops and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
The wireless card is configured for your D-Link at home.
You need to configure your laptop's wireless card for the wireless settings at work too (ie the SSID and encryption etc.). Contact the network manager at your work for the wireless configuration so you can configure the wireless card with these settings.
It maybe possible to setup different profiles on the laptop's wireless card, one for home and one for work so you can just click on the correct profile depending on your home or work location.
Check whether the drivers for the motherboard is installed for the wireless Adapter card if it is onboard or if it is a PCI wireless card please reinstall the drivers using the software which came with that card. Thanks. It should work.
Try to restart the the Wireless Router if that doesn't work then go to: Start-> Run-> CMD [Enter] type in: netsh winsock reset [reset] restart the pc... when it boots back up go back to CMD prompt and type in: net start [enter] this will start the net services you may need to go type in Services.msc in cmd prompt and go all the way to bottom and enable Wireless Zero Configuration... If that doesnt work you may need to reinstall Drivers on room mates PC.
I used to have a Linksys WPC54G. Thia is normal for the LinkSys WPC54G. How ever in your configurations make sure everything is enabled. But as this being a wireless adapter you should make sure you use AdHoc Mode configurations and set it to channel 6 works the best and set it to G-Only mode not mixed..See the network light blinks and it should be flashing fast for it to conect. I had this same problem. I decided to reconfigure my Linksys to AdHoc and it seemed to work better form me. For as the secure links I set them at non secure and I manually set up my IP Address which is 192.168.1.01-255 Sub net mask is 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1 DCHP Server is also 192.168.1.1 I do hope this helps if it doesn't I say try moving your laptop around until your Wireless Network enables. there is always Tech Support on Linksys.com also. Good luck and I hope this works for you.
well i think obviously the network card is damaged and causing the pc to stop when checking the pci slot that the card is in.
Return to the supplier as the card should light up orange or green when operating normally, and under warranty if Os has a 12 month warranty period.
Assuming you haven't had a power surge, they should replace the card.
