The installation CD contains a driver of the adapter to run the device.If you lost the CD, you can let your computer find the driver online.
Connect your computer to the internet .Plug the USB device to your laptop. Go to device manager , look under network adapter , find Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter w/ SpeedBooster, right-click it, hit update driver, there will be a windows update pop-up page, so just hit search automatically.
You should have only 1 wireless adapter, the other 1 is the ethernet adapter. If you experience low signal strength even after updating the drivers, you need to customize wireless settings on the router. You need to change the wireless mode to "802.11b and 802.11g" or "802.11g", whatever you have in your router. If this is the same with all wireless networks, wherever you go, then its an issue with the adapter, you should get a replacement.
1394 is NOT your Network adapter... you need to go to device manager and look there for any "Network Adapter" then right click and "Update Drivers". Your network card will have a "Name" or say PCI network device or the like. Thats the driver you need to find and install. Hopefully it is on your drive somewhere.
Are you looking for a utility to connect to the wireless network or drivers to install the adapter. If you are using WINDOWS XP or VISTA then you don't need utility/program to connect to the wireless network. If you are looking for drivers, then you can download that from the web site. Click Here for more information about how to connect to the wireless network.
The tech was incorrect - your network adapter is just not recognized by the system. If you install the correct drivers for your particular network adapter it should be recognized, which should then solve your problem. Search the Gateway website for network drivers for your particular desktop, and if the network adapter was added (not built into the computer) then determine the manufacturer and model of your network adapter, then search the manufacturer's website for the correct drivers.
Even easier, if you still have the original disks that came with your computer and/or network adapter, they should include the correct drivers.
you network adapter either is not installed or the OS recognized it as a "generic adapter" and apply an appropriate driver for the said hardware. this is good but sometimes the windows just apply the nearest driver close to what is you driver...
if you network adapter is brand new chances are that you still got the disk came with the package and just uninstall the window's xp driver and reinstall it. if you dont have the disk just look at the website of the said adapter.
solution: if you are using windows xp 1. click control panel 2. click the icon "system" 3. at the hardware tab click the "device manager" and look for the network adapter branch 4. if you can see a network adapter installed right click it and click uninstall... 5. reboot and let them window automatically search and reinstall your adapter. 6. if you the windows don't automatically install it, go back to control panel and click "add hardware" and install the hardware manually
