The built in wireless card on my Gateway LT21 is disabled, which I could normaly fix, but the physical on/off wireless comunications button is literally broken off, and Gateway says, "this is not a consumer replacable part." All I need to do is turn back on wireless comunications, but I can't a way to do that inside windows. Please help asap. Thanks!

Start, type "network connections" and press enter. Right click your disabled wireless connections and select "enable".

The computer device manager shows that with the wireless network card is okay, and drivers and everything ok, but the network settings show that the wireless network card is disabled. Network card can not be enabled. I tried with several wireless network cards, nothing changes. The problem arose after the computer's motherboard replacement. Everything is working as before, except for a wireless network card. Where would be a problem in Windows 7?? The network card is a PCI Edimax EW-7128G. Maybe someone knows how to solve this problem?? Thank you.

Ok im wracking my brain!

i have just updated my OS to windows 7 after years of XP. Since updating, a few of my hardware devices needed to be updated aswell. One in particular was my wireless card.

So i went online and purchased a Ralink 802.11b/g/n, installed software and drivers, good to go right? wrong! the bloody thing wont enable.

I have tried everything, aswell as contacting the manufacturer. They have offered me a refund, but i dont want to give in that easy.

Have been trying to install a high gain USB wireless long range wireless network adapter to my laptop. Initially tried a Alfa AWUS036h, software installed ok, but it never detected any networks and in Network Connections it was showing disabled. Any attempt to enable started well, showed enabling but the icon stayed at disabled. I presumed it was a problem with the device so returned it on Amazon and purchased a RT73 USB Wireless LAN Card but it has the same issue. Tried the device on a XP laptop and installed and operated brilliantly. Both devices stated on the packaging that they were Windows 7 compatible. Have checked that I have the latest driver from the manufacturer. Any suggestions???

A:RT73 USB Wireless LAN Card will not enable.

Welcome to SF,

Disable any Security or Firewall Software for now.

Uninstall/reinstall the drivers from Safe Mode.

Verify that all your Network Services are Started from Control Panel.

I'm on a Dell Inspiron 600m notebook computer. I reinstalled windows xp home, and I downloaded a package with all the drivers for this system.

The wireless card is a Broadcom 440x 10\100 integrated controller

I am certain that is the card in the system, and the installation of the driver was successful. However, the wireless network icon in the start bar does not appear.

In the device manager, the broadcom card is listed under "Network Adapters." However, under the "Other Devices" section I found a yellow question mark with an exclamation point next to the words, "Network Controller."

The Device Instance ID for this "Network Controller" is:

I'm running a Toshiba Satellite L300 with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 and a T6400 processor. I haven't had any connection problems untill now. The problem I'm having now is Windows cannot find any wireless networks. I can connect through a Ethernet cable but not wirelessly. Another thing that bothers me is that I can't enable the network connection in the network connections folder. I don't know why this is happening suddenly as I haven't made any changes involving my network settings at all. I've looked it up on the internet but couldn't find anything that would help me. One solution that looked promising was: no wireless networks were found in range error

That didn't work though because my "event log" service was already set to Automatic so my case must be different. All help is appreciated and thanks a lot.

My dad just bought a new wireless router and out of our 3 computers, mine is having a problem. My computer is a Dell Vostro 1500 with a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card.

Checklist for networking Windows Machines with TCP/IP
- PCs which are not XP must have TCP/IP installed.
- Each PC must have a unique computer name.
- Each PC must have a network share defined.
- ALL NICS must be on the same subnet (e.g. IP 192.168.0.* subnet mask
- XP PCs must have Netbios over TCP/IP enabled (only essential for XP to talk to W9X PCs).
- MS Client and file & printer sharing must be enabled on each machine.
- All NICs must have their node type = anything except p-node (peer to peer, or point-point).
* To check, open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL.
- XP's ICF firewall is permanently disabled. (Only necessary for pre XP SP2).
- All 3rd party firewalls are disabled, uninstalled and deleted (until connection is working).
- PCs have the same workgroup (helps, but not essential for XP/2K, necessary for 9X/ME).

Allow 15 mins after rebooting a PC for that PC to appear in the workgroup, or
for it to see all other PCs. Or you can search for the PC by its computer name.
Additional things to check if you still have problems:
- Check your Services are Started on all PCs: Workstation, Server, TCP/IP Netbios helper, Computer Browser.
- XP gives access to its shares via the Net Guest Account. (Note, not the same as the local guest account in user accounts which should be off). Net Guest Account is enabled by default in XP, but... Read more

I randomly pick the above. It has 2 antenna. Is this card gives a better signal than a motherboard that has an embedded Wifi module?

because the situation I was at today is, these folks has a toshiba all in 1, which comes with an embedded wifi module in that All in 1. The wireless router/Cable modem is at the basement, and some times they lost signal.

So I'm thinking of something like Linksys WRT1900AC that has 4 antenna, and perhaps source out a signal booster. But if that does not work, it would be time to get a real PC that c/w PCI wireless card.

Do you guys think there is a sizeable gain on signal strength on these PCI wireless card vs. embedded Wifi module on motherboard?

A:Does PCI wireless card has better signal than embedded wireless module inside PC

I would try power over Ethernet. But if you must use wifi the all in one probably has its antenna around the screen. I would look at range entenders. They are getting cheap where they just act as an access point and will allow you to extend their coverage

I have been having issues with my the Linksys Wireless card I installed in my Desktop computer for some time now. For some reason the connection just drops, but it still says I am connected. I leave a dos window open to watch as it happens by pinging the router. All of the sudden it will say "request timed out", but the icon shows that it's still connected to the wireless network.

I have tried just about everything to overcome this but nothing seems to work. Rebooting the router will allow it to work for a few minutes and then it times out again. Sometimes it will continue timing out, sometimes it will reconnect and sometimes it will says limited or no connection. Sometimes hitting repair will do the same thing...make it work for a few moments and they down again.

I have 4 other devices that connect to that router wirelessly and they have no issues at all, so I'm not prepared to blame the router. I noticed that my desktop's event view shows this entry frequently:

“The system detected that network adapter” Linksys...PCI Adapter – “Packet Scheduler Miniport was connected to the network, and has initiated normal operation over the network adapter”.

Would seeing this event frequently not indicate that the card was dropping often and coming back up?

I'm pretty much ready to run a 50' ethernet cable to the computer, but I thought I'd check with you guys first before I completely give up on the wireless card.

I have just purchased a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter, Model No. WMP54GS, with the intention of setting it up on a desktop running Windows XP Pro. I want to integrate it into my existing wireless network. Currently, the setup is a Motorola Wireless Access Point Model No. WA840G connected to a Linksys Wired Router, which in turn connects to the net. I currently have two machines, both laptops, that work with this wireless setup with no problem. The third machine, the desktop, has been connecting directly to the Linksys Wired Router, and I now want to switch it over to wireless.

So I've put the Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter into the desktop, installed the driver, and the problem is that it only finds my Wireless Network half the time, and when it does, it says 'Connected' but 'No Signal'. Always. Not even 'Low'. Just 'No Signal'. I can't even connect to the router or the wireless access point.

FYI, I don't currently use any kind of encryption with my wireless access point, so that is a non-factor.

Any advice?

Hello All

Personal preliminaries: non-tech, microsoft office, webservices.

After moving to a new country, we purchased a wireless internet connection (the problem started there - we could have gone for a wired solution). It comes out with a PCMCIA card and a software to run it. It connects to my laptop which has a PCMCIA slot. After purchasing a PCMCIA slot adopter for the desktop PC, it can be inserted to my desktop PC also to connect to the internet.

We have a wireless router (3Com) that we used before to connect our wired broadband connection. In our previous posting, we used to connect all our laptops, PC, and Mac computer, and the printer to the home network.

Here, though the PCMCIA card connects to laptop and desktop individually, we could not create a home network. The connection doesn't seem to go through the LAN configurations. The LAN wired connections between the laptop and PC show each other but cannot share the internet connection. The new PCMCIA solution won't run on the Mac-Mini because neither the software nor the hardware is compatible. Each time we shift the PCMCIA card to either the laptop or desktop PC to surf. We shift files through USB to print via the desktop PC to which the printer is connected. You know what a pain it is.

Switching to wired connection plan is not possible currently because of the annual contract we have signed (fine prints!) has a penalizing clause with a couple of hundred dollar penalty.

Usually we need a wired connection to the router to reconfig the
SSID, Channel, and encryption keys. Reconfiguring can not be done with the

Hello, Basically I want to find a way to use my Alltell wireless USB modem card to provide Internet access to 2 computers. We have a cradelpoint router that accepts a USB wireless card but we do not want to use this router because we live in a very rural area and the router makes slow internet speeds even slower and with the router we loose the internet connection frequently and have to disconnect then reconnect at least once a night.

We want to set this up but do not know how, can you help?:
1. Plug the wireless usb card into one of the computers and have that computer then connect to a switch or hub so all the other computers can communicate with it. Then enable Internet Connection Sharing on the computer with the Altell card. This will basically turn the computer into a NAT server which will allow it to communicate with all the other computers with internal IP addresses and translate requests/responses to the Internet.

Do I have to buy a switch or hub? how do I add the IP address in - I am lost in trying to set this up!!

A:Using an AllTell wireless card to make a wireless network?

Here are details if the computer with the mobile wireless card is running a Windows OS: Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

Unless the router is defective or you are not positioning it well I can't think of any reason why it would slow the not-very-fast wireless connection. What do you get with something like with the card in a computer and what do you get using the router with only that same computer connected to it?

A hub is half duplex so can slow a network with multiple computers the same way Wi-Fi does, so best to use a switch. If the router you have has enough ports to connect all your computers you can use it as a switch.

Hi everyone and thanks for you time

We have a rather large spread on our property, and had a little tussle over placement of our Wireless G router (Lynksys). I've read enough about Wireless-N to know it would be a good opportunity to upgrade and convinced our landlord to do so.

However I'm not seeing any noticeable difference in terms of the network range after installing the Linksys WRT150N - I'm still stuck at about 100 feet with a direct line of sight, which is no difference from the previous router. I have little concern for speed as our local cable internet maxes out at 600 KB/s regardless, so I figured we would be set to go with our existing wireless cards.

My question then is - is it necessary to install Wireless N cards in our laptops to improve the range? Can't find much on this topic through Google.

A:Need Wireless-N card to boost Wireless-N router range?

I think it helps a little, however im not 100% sure, talk to your landlord about getting a range extender, you just plug them into the wall.

I own a Gateway C-140 Tablet PC. It originally came with a Integrated Intel® 3945 802.11a/b/g wireless Mini PCI-E card. I did not have great luck dual booting into Linux with it so I purchased a replacement, the Gigabyte GN-WI01GT. The GN-WI01GT has a AR5005 GS Atheros 5th generation chipset.

This new wireless card works great in Linux now however I can not get it to work in Vista Home Premium (i know i know, but its the best OS for a tablet). Seems like I swapped my problems

I have talked with a Gigabyte tech and a Gateway tech.

The gigabyte rep suspected that the device needed to be enabled via a button on the side of the computer. On my tablet the button is using the function key and F2. I tried this and my wireless card was still unable to detect any wireless networks. He checked the driver version ( which was the latest. The device is showing up in the device manager as enabled. Vista says the device is working properly. He also informed me I should not need any separate programs to connect to a wireless network like some manufactures do.

The gateway tech was of no use and basically asked me to check the FN + F2 to enable the device told me it was a 3rd party product and gave me a gateway pay by minute tech line.

Since the new card is functioning in Linux perfectly fine I find it hard to believe that it is something as simple as enabling the wireless using FN + F2 since you would think I would be require to do it in Linux as well before it worked.

A:New Wireless Card, Unable to view Wireless Networks

I came up with a semi solution and a semi diagnosis for this problem. I put BOTH cards in at once putting an antenna on each. I noticed that when I booted into windows that the wireless light showed it was still disabled and in fact it was disabled. I used the FN+F2 key to enable wireless and *POOF* both cards work in vista now.

So my guess is there was sort of hardware check that was disabling power to my wireless or something.

During the third week of May or so I was on a college campus with my laptop computer, and as we all know most computers automatically connect to the internet when a wireless signal is detected, my laptop connected just fine to our network with no problems through out the entire school year, now that I have been back home the computer had had a problem charging , and had the memory and battery replaced, also the hard drive was restored to factory settings, since that, I have been unable to connect to any wireless service. I keep getting an error message, saying that a network cable is unplugged, when I try everything I can think of to connect, i.e. clicking on anything that says anything about wireless and connections in my control panel or on my desktop it never can even detect the wireless service, it shows these 3 , local area connection one and 2, and some weird 1934 connection but they are all disabled. Does this just mean my wireless card is out,or what? Even when I try access connection it tries to connect , but fails, I never had to go through any of this on campus, also, the button that used to be there on the start menu that says connect to, is no longer even there.

A:How to tell if I need a New wireless card, or if my computer still has one...

"... most computers automatically connect ..."

The ones owned/used by the more security conscious are set to only connect automatically to preferred networks. Takes an extra click or two to connect to a free public network, but you have a better idea what the computer connects to and when.

I assume you have an integrated wireless adapter. Is it switched on? Does it appear under Network Adapters in Device Manager?

"hard drive was restored to factory settings" implies to me that a fresh Windows was installed, so ...

Did you install all the chipset drivers, including for the wireless adapter?

If you were using a utility other than WZC did you install it?

To Whom it May Concern,

My daughter has a Dell Inspiron B130 running XP - Pro. She also has an Intel PROSet Wireless card. The other day she brought the computer home and told us that her wireless internet connection is no longer working. When I checked it out via her wireless software managment program it states that no wireless adapters are available. When I looked at the device manager it does not show up there either. Only the hard wired network adaptor shows up. All Windows updates have been updated and there are no viruses. I went into the setup and made sure that the wireless device was enabled. I also have the latest BIOS updates. I am at a loss as to what to do. Any help would be very appreciated.


P.S. Edited to Add: I have tried to update the wireless driver, but it will not update. The computer just does not see the hardware.

A:Wireless Card Not Seen By Computer

Don't know if this will work, but from the BIOS try disabling completely the on board LAN. I've had problems with that being set to automatic and the LAN and WLAN not playing so nice together.

Hi ^^"

I just signed up for cable internet so my brother and I decided to go wireles in our house.

I got every thing set up, downstairs computer is the one connected to the linksys router. First, everything works just fine, both my notebook and my brother's pc upstairs got a very strong signal.

Then, once I tried to set up password for our network, the PC upstairs suddenly can't connect to the internet. We can still see our network on the list, but couldn't connect to it. My notebook still works just fine.

Please advise.
Thank you very much ^___^

Hello all. I came across this website and forum through searching for this problem. I've come across similar problems but they all either end with the person taking their computer to a shop or it goes unsolved.

Here is the issue:
My computer (Dell Vostro 1500 with Windows XP) will not detect the wireless network we have here at home. The wireless card is an Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG. The laptop has a light that shows if WiFi is on or not. Whenever I turn on the laptop, the light is usually on but not detecting any wireless network (either ours or someone else's).

-This started happening about three weeks ago. There was no damage to the computer. I reformatted the laptop and reinstalled all the drivers but the problem persisted.
-Turns out one of our cats had thrown up on the router we had at the time so I figured that was the problem and waited until we got another one.
-The new one came yesterday and everything was working fine. A couple hours later the problem resurfaced.

I rolled back the driver thinking maybe that was the issue but apparently it wasn't. I tried uninstalling the wireless card and reinstalling. The only thing that accomplished was deleting the profile I had on there. I've tried the simple repair option but that hasn't worked.

I know the router is broadcasting a signal because everyone else in the house is getting the connection.

Here is what is displayed when I do the IPCONFIG/ALL in CMD:

We had an older computer running windows xp that had become very outdated so we bought a new computer with windows 7 home premium (64-bit) and I was wondering if my old "dynex enhanced wireless g desktop card" would work with my new computer, or if I need to go out and buy a new card. My computer is:
eMachines - Desktop with Intel? Pentium? Processor ET1831-03

And my wireless card is probably discontinued model DX-EBDTC but I havent taken it out of the old computer to confirm. It says that it is compatible with vista but I dont know whether it was compatible with 32 and 64 bit versions of vista? I read on here that most time if it is compatible with vista then it will be with windows 7, is this correct? If it is compatible do I simply use the driver on the dynex page (even though it doesnt specify it is for windows 7 because it is discontinued?)

If it is not compatible does anyone have any recommendations on a inexpensive but good quality desktop card, or would you recommend running a cable from the router to this computer (only about 20 feet away but 2 walls and a room in between where I would need to go around the room with cable and cut holes in the walls?

I'm doubting that the problem is with the card. It works with eight other computers I've tried it on. I'm guessing it's with the USB on the new computer; however, the Mouse and Keyboard [both usb] work fine. I put the wireless card into a slot which I KNOW was working. The usb controllers [two of them] show up properly in the device manager, however, a third doesn't seem to exist. No device on the computer can see the card or the built in ethernet [the heck?]. I'm now on my second complete format, but I'm doubting the problem is going to fix itself.

Windows XP Professional, straight off of the disc as I'm obviously unable to update it. Board is an AMD 3400 athlon xp. Also, it's EXTREMELY touchy with some of the USB ports, so much as touching the cable is causing the machine to powerdown as though I just shoved an IDE cable into a drive while it was on, possibly related. The card is a 2wire wireless card802.11g - standard for wireless routers via SBC.

Thanks to anyone who can give me some suggestions !

A:USB wireless card not installing on new computer

Is the reason that you are unable to update XP Pro because you cant get online because of the wireless card problem? Or is it because you have a less than legal copy of the Win XP Pro disc? I am gonna guess because of the Wireless card problem.

Does your network card (Is it an onboard Network Interface?) work with out the Wireless card installed. if so, you can remove the Wireless card and connect by wire to your router and get on the internet to upgrade your OS.

Don't confuse your wireless broadband connection provided by AT&T with WiFi which is wireless networking. They're two separate technologies and connections that use two different sets of hardware.

You might want to make a call to AT&T just to verify that the card and software is compatible with Vista and ask if there's anything extra you need to do to get it to work.

Hi guys,

First off I should say that I am at a beginner level and even though I would say I know more than the average Joe, compared to you guys I am but a blip on the radar. Ok, so here's my problem;

About 2-3 months ago I left my computer with my brother in Kansas City and before I get to ahead of myself this is a hand built computer. No one component is from any direct maker such as Dell. They are all different hand picked parts from a guy that built it as I just forwarded the money. Ok, so as I was saying is that I left the computer in his care and I know when I left it that everything worked fine. However, I noticed that when I got the computer back 3 months later after it being shipped to Arizona that the Wireless N card was not being picked up by the computer at all. Pushing past all the magnitude of dust left behind from the computer being in his closet, I noticed that nothing was disconnected. I find this a little weird as I said before it was all working. Can someone or anyone tell me what I would have to do in order for my computer to once again recognize that I have a wireless n card already built into the machine.
Thanks again and I hope I can be of any assistance.

Most likely it may just simply be a bad adapter. Have you tried pluggin it into other USB ports? Another potential problem could be with it conflicting with any other network-based driver. Most likely I see people's wifi drivers crash cuz they conflict with some old modem drivers that were preinstalled on their system.

When I go to the adapter's power settings the Advanced tab doesn't have any of the WOL settings available and the Power Management tab has the "Allow this device to wake the computer" option greyed out (see attached screenshots).

In my bios I have S1 & S3 sleep enabled and everything I can find that could be related with WOL enabled (Wake from Modem, Wake from Ring, etc.) although I see nothing referring to Wake on Lan or WOL specifically mentioned. The machine wakes from sleep using a keyboard perfectly so no problems there.

When I go to the ethernet adapter's settings all of the WOL options are available and enabled but I need this to work for my WiFi since the machine isn't physically connected. I just want to save some energy costs since I'm currently leaving my machine one 24/7 so I can remote in when need be from work.

A while ago I bought a Gigabyte AirCruiser G PCI Wireless Network card for my computer. It worked fine, there were no problems. However, just the other day I bought a new graphics card (ATI Radeon X1600 AGP), and I've been having problems since installing it.
The first time I tried to start the computer after installing the graphics card, the computer beeped a few times and would not turn on. I thought the graphics card was at fault, but Then I noticed that I'd knocked the wireless card loose, so I plugged it back in properly, and it was all good. The computer booted fine, all the hardware worked.
Then, the next morning I turned my computer on again, and the computer beeped and would not start. After some mucking around with the hardware again, I've found that the computer's fine if the wireless card is not attatched, but won't boot if it is. It won't even display anything on my monitor. It just beeps and does nothing.
I'm thinking the wireless card may be faulty due to something I've done, but I'm wondering why it worked one night, then didn't work the next morning, without anything having been touched in between.
I really don't want to have to buy a new wireless card, so any suggestions at all would be appreciated.

I just purchased and installed (exactly as the directions said) a LinkSys WMP-300N.

The installation calls to run the setup first, in the middle of which it will power off and you are to install the card. I did this, but when I went to boot back up, the computer goes into an endless loop of turning on and off.

I replaced my PSU (to an antec ev-650) thinking maybe it was going over max on startup, but same result. I ahve update my bios versions, and updated all drivers on the computer. Still the same thing. However, If I install the card with the computer running (i know i know, not supposed to) it works fact I am using it right now to view this website.

freezing up within 15 seconds of Windows opening. The computer froze in safe mode too. When i tried running CHECKDISK/REPAIR, my computer froze.

Hello everyone .

First thing.
I have integrated LAN in my PC which I dont use so I disabled it in BIOS.
Than I installed the driver for my Belkin F5D7050.
I go into the Adapter Settings and than it comes up with my adapter disabled so I click on Enable and than the box pops up and says Enabling than Enabled but still its Disabled as its gray. Sometimes the box freezes when Enabling. And yes I have clicked Refresh after I tried to enable.

Anyone got clues, there was no problems when I was connecting with Vista.

Thanks Guys

I installed XP on one computer and Vista on another computer. How do I enable wireless on both these computers? Someone suggested that I install the wireless network drivers for these O/S's from the computer company (Gateway) that I bought the computers from. But, Gateway is asking that I pay for that support. How can I install the needed drivers to enable wireless on these computers without going to dumb Gateway?

Hi all,

normally I would not bother you with such a silly question but I just can?t solve the issue.
I run W7 ultimate 64bit on a brand new customized machine. Not an upgrade but a clean Installation
The problem I have is the following:
I upgraded to wireless with D-Link DWA552. I have a Linksys router WRT54G.
Installation and driver upgrade went fine. PCI card is correct in device manager en enabled.
The issue I have is that I cannot enable the wireless adapter.
Ok next step: got another card. Linksys, the a Belkin, the a noname.
Always the same issue. Microsoft compatibility center says YES to 64 bit. Installation is easy as it should be but the wireless adapter stays disabled whatever I do.
I also restartet WLAN Service, I disabled/enabled the hardware.
I appreciate every Info/Tip.
btw I did countless wireless installation.
Am I missing something?
Thanks so much

I assume you have checked that you have installed the driver and it's working properly as noted from Device Manager. I also assume you have enabled the device in BIOS (if applicable).

My HP 8510w has been no wireless adapters available and it looks like caused by INTEL site driver updating, which is not covered by HP driver site.

However, after all drivers re-installed with HP recommended ones, the problem is still there. Both HP Wireless Assistant and Wireless Confirguration Utility are no function.

HP Compaq 8510w Mobile Workstation

It looks like there are 2 wireless drivers available, a broadcom and an Intel driver. Did you try both? or do you know for sure what wireless card you have? You can try goin to the device manager and try updating the wireless driver from there also. Otherwise if you have any system restore points made, you may want to do a system restore and see if that will bring the correct driver back.

So I just got a brand new laptop, a Dell Inspiron. I turned it on, started adjusting properties to suit me, and tried to connect to my internet connection. In the process I wanted to disconnect from my internet, but nstead I pressed disable. Now I can't figure out at all how to enable the thing again. I try to troubleshoot it and it tells me that the wireless adaptor is disabled, but gives me absolutely no clues on how to enable it again.

How do I do this? 5 minutes old and I already have problems...

Usually its a special keystroke, something like ALT+F8 - check above the laptop keys : are there special functions shown, perhaps a wireless icon?

I am currently running a HP Pavilion 17 Laptop with Windows 7 Professional.  On a few occasions in the past the wireless adapter in the unit stopped working.  I don't recall what I did to get it working again then however at this time I cannot get it to enable although I followed all the steps for changing adapter settings on the Network and Sharing Center.  When I select Connect it simply shows that it is not connected.  Nothing I tried seemed to help.  I have a Belkin Wi-Fi unit which is working and my laptop works as long as I have an Ethernet cable connected.  However if I disconnect the cable the laptop will not connect via the wireless adapter.  In the past it would always remain connected to the Wi-Fi even if I disconnected the cable.  PLEASE give me any thoughts you might have to troubleshoot this.  Thanks in advance for your effort and help.

I have a linksys WUSB54G v3 adapter that I am trying to install on a machine with server 2008. When I first put it in, it found a driver and installed it. It showed up in network connections, but it was disabled. When I enabled it, nothing happened. I thought maybe it was a problem with the driver windows had picked, so I downloaded the latest official driver from linksys. I uninstalled the one windows had used and followed the linksys installer which errored when it tried to detect the device. Server 2008 is based on the same underlying structure as Vista, and I'm just experimenting so don't worry why I'm connecting a server over wireless. Any ideas on how I can get this thing working?

Hi guys,

Would really appreciate some help here as I am getting the run-around from ISP, Microsoft and Compaq.

I have a Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium Compaq Presario that I have put downstairs and am trying to connect to the internet via a Netcomm NP545 USB stick. The USB stick worked fine on my old computer which ran XP but it won't work on the Vista model.

The USB stick is compatible with my version of Vista, the problem is that when I go to the network settings and it shows my wireless connection, it is disabled. If I click enable it goes on to say enabling...enabled but it remains disabled.

The USB stick works on my other two computers one running XP, the other running Windows 7. And am at a total loss as to what could be preventing it from working.
Anyone have any ideas?

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on a custom built PC. I have a Zonet 1642D wireles card that I had used fine for almost a year.

For about the past two weeks my internet would suddenly drop about once a day and it would say there were no wireless connections available. I would have to restart my computer and then everything would be fine.

Well on Friday it happened and I got fed up, so I uninstalled the wireless card and reinstalled, and now I can't enable the wireless connection at all in the Network Connections menu. It will say "Enabling..." and then "Enabled" but it doesn't actually enable.

I run the diagnostic tool on the Network Adapter and I get the message "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter." In the detailed information "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter". I've tried reinstalling the driver, I've downloaded the driver from the Zonet website, and I've tried rolling back drivers. I've tried a system restore to when it did work, and I'm getting nothing. Anyone have any ideas? Would greatly appreciate any input, and thank you in advance.

1st Post.
Moved to new house. Cable modem is far from desktop (no cable outlet in office), have to connect wirelessly. Bought wireless adapter (Asus PCE-N53). Installed drivers and card. All is well. BUT computer doesn't see any networks. Tried vista's Diagnose Why Can't Find Any Networks and says "the network adapter ASUS pce-n53 wireless lan card is experiencing driver or hardware related issues". On Device manager the card is enabled and working properly BUT on Control Panel > Network Connections the wireless connection is Disabled. When I try to enable it, it doesn't (goes through the motions but in the end it still shows Disabled.)
I re-installed the driver, rebooted the machine, removed and re-inserted the card more than once, same results.
This is the 2nd card that I try, the 1st was a Rosewill, so I don't think it's the card itself.
Is something wrong in my settings?
Or is it the motherboard?
Or something else?

Hi, a few pieces of advice for you.

Make sure your drivers are up to date (even thought the company's gone bust it may use generic drivers)

Try enabling the wireless card then restarting your PC.

Make sure your PC is up to date (Especially make sure you have SP2 installed)

See if there are any options to do with your Wireless card in the BIOS.

I recently bought a TP-Link wn353gd wireless adapter. Win7 recognizes it automatically as a realtek 8185 extensible wireless device. However, after the installation completed, I found out that the wireless device appears as "disabled". I clicked "enable" a prompt appeared saying that it was enabling the device, then finish... and the wireless adapter was still disabled.

I tried downloading the win7 drivers from the realtek site, using the vista drivers from the TP-Link cd... nothing. The wireless card is there, I just can't get it to enable.

I did notice that both connection utilities (realtek's and TP-Link's) showed the wireless adapter as disabled, and kept flashing constantly, as if they were being updated.

What can I do?

Hello- since moving to a new location I've been having problems with my internet connection, and have ran several test.

Yesterday I went to a wired connection instead of wireless, and then decided to go back to wired. Since my wireless connection is through a linksys WUSB600N and it has known problems with skipping when playing games like World of Warcraft I turned off WLAN and had disabled my wireless adapter, then installed another program to run the connection (Which I had done previously though the last time I didn't turn off WLAN or disable my adapter). Then I went to enable the adapater and it wouldn't enable.

I also turned back on WLAN and restarted. It still won't work. At this point nothing I do will enable my wireless adapater. It shows it is enabling but then it just keeps saying disabled. Any suggestions would be great. The light on the WUSB600N doesn't even turn on when I plug it in now, and it just worked less then 24 hours ago.

I am having the EXACT same problem... has anyone found anything out about this one yet? Not many things baffle me, but this one has my hair coming out by the fistfuls...

Can you guys show me the way to enable wireless at BIOS?

A:How can I enable wireless at BIOS

Ngoctraiden9x, welcome to the windows 7 forum.

The bios is where the hardware is turned on/off/configured in most cases. For your computer to use the wireless, you have to have the hardware drivers installed and the software to control the wireless adapter.

Normally, when you turn your machine on the bios recognizes your hardware devices and then as your Operating system loads, it load all the drivers for your devices and at that time your wireless would become active.

Is this what you meant when you said enable wireless at bios?

Some bios screens will allow you to turn on and off devices. If this is what you mean, then by entering bios, go thru the screens and look for the wireless. Some machines have a physical wireless switch or a function key toggle.

I have a Netgear CGD24G Wireless Gateway and a Gateway MA8 laptop with after-market Windows 7 (Vista got a virus, went ahead and upgraded.)

Now, when I download 100 MB files on my Xbox 360 (Which is wired to the modem) it will be downloaded in a couple minutes, or less. The other computers in my house (There are plenty, and even more that come and go.) get a blazing internet connection, and most of them are wireless. Now this computer, which had an extremely quick connection as well all of a sudden dropped off, while the rest of the computers remain fast.

I've gone to before and after this occurred and my speed before was around 12 mb/s, and one time around 4 AM was even upward of 25 mb/s, all of these tests were performed multiple times on different server locations.

I've had wireless on this pc before. A while back, we had a tech come out from out internet provider to fix a few things, and we told him we already have a few other devices on our wireless network, so it may be a better idea to connect through an ether-net cord to our main pc for a more secure connection.

That has worked fine for the most part, but now there's a different problem, and I think I need to be able to connect wireless in order to fix it.
If it matters, the problem is, that any game I try to patch via the game launcher, times-out.
I actually spoke with a CSR from Square Enix, he said it may have to do with the port-forwarding, then I spoke with a rep in technical support from our local provider, and she said there is no port forwarding through the(ir) ether-net but it is available through wireless.

So, that's essential what has brought me here.
I'll upload a couple of pics, so you can actually see that:
A: There is no wireless enabled on my pc at all and
B: There's no wireless driver - just the one on my driver list that, tbh, I don't know much about.

Let me preface this by saying I know next to nothing about computers, so please provide detailed advice if you choose to advise.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 running with Windows XP and a Linksys Wireless-G broadband wireless router WRT54G2.

The wireless was working fine yesterday. Tonight when I turned it on, I couldn't get an internet connection. The modem is ok because I have a connection with an ethernet wire.

When I go into the Network Connections window, I see that Wireless Network Connection is Disabled. Don't understand that. I didn't disable it.

I right click on it and press Enable, but all I get is a "Wireless Network Connection" window that says "Enabling..." and then "Connection Failed."

I ran the trouble shooter, but the suggestions either didn't apply (my hardware is ok with this machine because it has run on it before) or were so involved I was afraid to attempt them and cause a bigger problem. Disabling and changing settings makes me nervous.
