Advent wireless mouse AMWL13 works for 30 seconds then freezes


Sorry to hear you're having that problem, Karen. I was unable to find the model # that you posted, but I DID find something for an M312 wireless mouse made by Advent:

If you look at the response to this issue, it lists everything I would've typed in here to suggest trying. Wireless peripherals are a "strange animal", in that so many different factors can influence their optimal operating condition. Hopefully something in this article can help you, and good luck! :)

Clean advent 5611 fan


Laptops are notorious for overheating. The fan and cooling vents also get clogged easily. Even a 'clean' place has some dust in the air, and it is attracted by the fan and static. Canned air will take care of some of it. Opening the laptop is complicated and not for the weak of heart. When the laptop is running, you'll feel air movement. spray through that vent with the laptop turned off.

We have an Advent 7088 laptop and want to connect it to wireless router. We thought a wireless facility was already installed in the 7088 but when we try the wireless on/off button nothing happens. What...


Try this: I found it after doing some searching on the web.

Wireless card stops working after upgrading to Windows Vista
After upgrading to Windows Vista everything works fine apart the Marvell Wireless card, when you press the button nothing happens.
There seems to be three different ways of solving this problem (there is a fourth - don't install Vista) and I've listed them below, hopefully at least one should work for you.
The first solution is to press the wireless button while Windows Vista is loading, you have to be quick though as it only works if you press the button between the loading scrolling lines logo (after the post screen) and before the windows logo appears.
The second is to go into Device Manager, select the Marvell Wireless card and then go to Properties>Advanced>Default Adhoc Mode. Here change the Default Adhoc mode to B or G. When you confirm the change the wireless connection should become active, if it doesn't then press the wireless button and try changing the setting again.
The third method is to create a desktop shortcut to the wireless adapter. Go to [Network and Sharing Centre]>[Manage Network Connections] and then right click the wirless connection and choose Create Shortcut. You can then switch on the wireless at any time, just point at the shortcut then right click and chose Disable. Once its disabled right click on the shortcut again and choose Enable. It should then connect within 20-30 seconds.

Check the router settings, if the router is set to only use 802.11N wireless it won't pick up a computer that is using 802.11G or 802.11B wireless.

Good luck
