Can not enable wireless network card!!!

Q: Can not enable wireless network card!!!

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.

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!

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.

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???

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.

Any ideas about what I can do to enable this wireless network connection?

I looked up some old posts on this and tried to follow them, but I didn't get the prompts mentioned under Wireless Network Connection Properties. For example, when I clicked

I don't understand why this has happened all of the sudden. Although I have Norton running and just ran a full scan, I suspect I have a virus because things have been sluggish the last couple of days and the ... Read more

I'm a novice to this wireless networking. I finally am using my wireless network to two XP desktops and a laptop VISTA. They are working fine but I have been around the 'net trying to figure out how to get some security. I can see my neighbors' wireless networks so I know mine could be accessed easily. I found the network properties on my VISTA and tried changing them to a WPA-personal but I get an error saying these settings are not correct. I installed the router on my XP first but I cannot find the network connection in my network places and I have no idea how to access the router to change security settings. So just how do I get this network 'password protected' with this community of computers? In case it matters, only the laptop VISTA is actually a wireless connection.

I just bought TP-LINK Wireless USB Adapter (Model: TL-WN321G) and had followed all necessary procedures (both manual and automatic) to install the driver specifically in my Windows 7 (32-Bit) desktop computer but every time I installed the driver it shows that in my Network Connection there is the "Wireless Network Connection 2" - Disabled. However, when I right click into it and try to Enable, it shows that it is now Enabling.... then Enabled but after that my "Wireless Network Connection 2" still Disabled.

I had already uninstalled my AVG Internet Security 2012 and disabled Windows Firewall and Run in Safe-Mode in installing the driver but still no luck it keeps showing that my "Wireless Network Connection 2" still Disabled after trying to Enable it.

I really appreciate if someone can help me into this.

Hello everyone,

I'm running into a problem with an uncle's custom desktop where the wireless network is refusing to enable, even after enabling the connection.

Here is a brief history;

1) Buy and install a Belkin wireless USB adapter. Wireless networks is enabled, but not picking up any SSID. Insure WLAN auto-config is enabled and no 3rd party wireless managers are installed.

2) My Uncle returns the Belkin and gets a Linksys by Cisco USB wireless adapter. Wireless network connection is disabled. Attempted to run the installation utility for the USB adapter, however it errors out stating the windows wireless manager isn't managing the wireless network. I went into services.msc, disabled WLAN auto-config, and re-enabled with the same issue. I thought something with Belkin may have hi-jacked the wireless management so I ran revo-uninstaller against the Belkin to remove the application and any related registry keys. Unfortunately the issue persists.

3) Even after telling him that it isn't an issue with with the USB adapters, he returned it for a NETGEAR PCI adapter. Again same issue, wireless networks show disabled, enabling the connection says it is successful, but the connection never enabled.

One thing I didn't mention is that the devices are seen in device manager, so its not an issue with the devices not being detected.

I'm currently doing a System restore(taking a little while) to make sure there was nothing missed between the Belkin where Wireless network connectio... Read more

I bought a NetGear N900 Wifi Dual Band USB Adapter in order for my desktop to connect to our router wirelessly. My desktop is a Win7 Home Premium.

My initial problem started when the adapter would not install correctly from the CD-ROM (I followed the instructions very carefully). I kept getting error messages that the adapter could not be found. However, I was able to pull the driver from the CD and was told it installed successfully.

Here's my main problem: Under Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings, the Wireless Network Connection remains Disabled (or greyed out). Anytime I try to enable it, Windows will saying "Enabling ... Enabled" but it STILL remains Disabled.

Does anyone have any recommendations on getting this fixed?

Here's what I've done below:
-After the first unsuccessful install, I uninstalled NETGEAR and all its related pieces, uninstalled my antivirus (AVG), turned off Windows FW, rebooted, and attempted another clean NETGEAR installation. No success (and received the same console error message that the adapter could not be found).
-I also uninstalled third-party programs and turned off unnecessary services in the background. Still no success.
-Tried installing on different USB ports. Again, no success.
-Even had a live chat session with NETGEAR support but ended up being told that they exhausted all their support measures and recommended I return the product and get a new one. But this is the third DIFFERENT ada... Read more

So the other afternoon we had a freak power outage, my PC was on and connected to a surge protector. So once the power came back on, literally like 5 minutes later, I rebooted my PC and have had Wireless issues ever since.

My PC is custom built with a Netgear WG311V3 PCI Wireless card in it.

When I boot up, it tells me I am connectied to our wireless network, but no websites will load. I check for wireless networks but my PC tells me none are in range. I have had this issue before so I goto Network Connections and Disable Wireless Network Connection 2, my wireless card, and then when I goto Enable it I get this error:

Hi,

I upgraded my wifes dell dimension 8200 from xp to win7... perhaps a mistake but its done now. One problem is that her network card loses its connection to the Internet (though it still sees the rest of the network) and to get it working I must disable and then enable it. The real fix is loading a new bios but... this is trouble.

I'd prefer a work around like a way to disable and enable the network card automatically at startup. Anyone know of a way that might work?

Thanks,
Rusty

check optional Windows Updates, Dell website and the card maker's website Support downloads page for your model to get a newer driver.

My wireless card in my Compaq Presario works fine and Windows 8 detects it and said it was compatible. For some strange reason though it's not working in Windows 8. It hasn't detected my wireless network. Currently I am connecting using a cable.

I am trying to do a Google search on this issue, is it me but is this device not compatible with Windows 8 despite Window 8 saying so? I have updated the drivers through Windows Update, but it still can't find my Wireless network even though Windows 7 did originally before my upgrade.

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.

Hi everyone.

This past weekend I went out of town and took my Windows 7 laptop with me -- since I returned home, it has been unable to connect to my wireless network. Other devices in my home connect to the network just fine, and the problem laptop has always been fine until now. My network card is an Atheros AR9285, and I'm attempting to connect to a Medialink router with WPA password protection and AES encryption.

My wireless network icon in the task bar has a yellow sign with an exclamation point in it. It says "No Internet access."

I have tried:

-rebooting the computer
-unplugging and restarting the modem and router
-going to the command prompt and renewing my IP address with the command IPCONFIG/RENEW

None of this works.

Like I said, all other devices in my house connect to the wireless network with no problem. It's just this one laptop. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
 

A:Windows 7 laptop with Atheros AR9285 network card can't connect to wireless network

Three things to try ...

If you have McAfee please see the sticky thread at the top of this (Networking) forum.

Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Revert to a System Restore Point before the weekend.

My rig uses a Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless mini half-card. It reports the correct name except within the wireless network list. Instead of 6230 it reports 6320. I searched the registry to see if I could find the error, but nothing found. It's only a nuisance, and a minor one at that. Anyone else seen this? Any way I can correct it? See image below:

A:Network card name reporting incorrectly in wireless network list area

Can only suggest you may not be using the latest wireless driver, but if you are, it must be a typo in the signature file written into the card's firmware which can only be changed by the manufacturer and may be noticed by them in the next release.

If its working, I wouldn't loose any sleep over it.

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 speedtest.net 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.

Our internet service provider updated our internet speed from 100mbps to 1000mbps for no extra cost. We had a Netgear n150 wireless router but it wouldn't support the 1000mbps speed. We were told we needed to upgrade to a r6300 netgear router which is capable of 1000mbps. Now were are told we need to install an ethernet PCI network card or a network adapter. I am told we have to have a 2.0 port for the network adapter to work. It would be cheaper for us to install the internal Ethernet PCI Card, my problem is I don't know which one to buy. I know we need one that is rated 1000mbps, are these universal or will we have to buy one that fits each brand of computer?

I'm trying (desperately) to set up my network on Windows 7, but have hit a bump in that it just cannot find my network.

I checked Device Manager to see if the card was found - it was with a troubleshoot exclamation point on it.

I removed the card, used the installation disc and am not able to get very far. After the install (after which nothing happens), I click on the Belkin Wireless Networking Utility icon on the desktop and it says "missing shortcut: searching for Belkinwcui.exe", after which I get a window saying "The item Belkinwcui.exe that this shortcut refers to has been changed of moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly".

That exe file isn't anywhere in my computer, searching through Explorer. In fact, in the Belkin install folder (Program Files (x86) -> Belkin ->FSD8001v1...) there just looks like maybe a driver (AegisE5.dll) and an application (AegisI5) that doesn't run.

My next choice, I guess is to take my PC upstairs and line it into my modem/base station directly, but I'd rather not move it.

Am I missing something? Why won't this work? How come I can't install my Wireless Card?

Please help, if you can. Thanks.

A:Cannot Setup Wireless Network (Belkin N1 Network Card)

I'm experiencing an almost identical issue. I had the same problems with the installation disc. After multiple install / unistall / restarts I was able to get the client installed. However, when I click to open the .exe nothing happens.

On top of that, the system is not recognizing the card. I tried all 4 PCI slots with no success.

I installed this same card (same model, different physical card) on a pc running xp sp3 very easily. Since that was so easy I bought another card for my windows 7 machine.

However, I was lazy and didn't do any research. Before I came upon this forumn I found a couple of google links saying this card was incompatible with vista (therefore incompatible with w7?).

Any else out there get this card working?

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:

On the net adapter, allowed internet connection sharing (from advanced tab) but then the host computer has no internet and i still couldn't find the wireless internet on the laptop
any suggestions?
 

A:Wireless Network Card

Well, I looked up the specifications for your ADMTek AN983 network card and find that it's a wired-only network adapter. Then, I looked up the specifications for the Sony Model: PCV-RS420, and find that this model doesn't come equipped with wireless capability.

Unless you've purchased and installed a separate wireless network adapter and have a compatible wireless router, you won't be able to connect to anything wirelessly.

It's certainly possible that, when you purchased the computer, that you added the wireless option. If that's the case, you will still need to have a wireless router in order to be able to establish a wireless network connection.

Now, if you *do* have both, then let me know. But, it should be simple enough to run the network setup wizard once everything's in place.

At the moment I have a USB wireless adapter and it is extremely annoying at times. The thing falls out, or just doesn't enable during bootup. I should mention this is on WinXP, I am upgrading my desktop parts and the operating system to Windows7.

My question is, are wireless PCI adapters just as good if not better than USB ones? I was looking at: Newegg.com - Shell Shocker Deal. Exclusive Jaw Dropping Savings on PC Components and Electronics. -- my current USB adapter isn't that special, a netgear one I got from walmart for 40.00$, WG111V2
Also as a side note: I'm looking at Kingston memory and 4GB DDR3 blocks are about the same price as two 2GB blocks, if anyone knows if there a risk to taking bigger blocks, or performance downgrade that would be good to know. The motherboard is an ASUS so it can handle up to 16GB of memory, 4 slots.

A:Wireless network card..

When you've upgraded the wireless adapter might actually work better, due to better hardware support provided by windows 7.

I've used usb wireless adapters for years, and had best results when combining wireless routers with usb adapters of the same brands. My best results were with brands like Sitecom (fairly cheap) and Thomson (kind of expensive - specially the usb adapters - but very stable in my experience).

As for your memory question, I will leave that to someone with more RAM knowledge.

A:Best Wireless PCI Network Card???

My recommendation is to try to keep with the same manufacturer as your wireless-router/access-point. This will result in the best level of compatibility between the two, as wireless is often far "gimpier" than wired connections.

Following that advice should drastically narrow down your list of candidates.

Perhaps if you did that, and came back with questions regarding specific models, some of us here could reply with our experiences on those models.

From that and the other stuff you've tried and described I think that the card or motherboard is intermittently defective. If it's the motherboard there's nothing you can do. If it's the card you could replace it with the exact same model or one that you know is supposed to work in that model laptop.

My advice is to keep the USB adapter in your pocket or laptop case and use it when needed.

Alright so I've been through two extremely cheap network cards on my computer so far, and typically they've done this thing where they'd be fine (30-70 ping) and then thered be points to where they would get 800-1k ping and sometimes 2k ping. Most of them I've totally destroyed through rage, or by messing with the antenna (or what have you one was a USB) until I got my ping back.

Is there anywhere I can get a network card that will frigen work, and I'm pretty sure it's not my router because I had a laptop which had no problem with internet (other than -2 fps on most games).

I was thinking this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0054L9PWO/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF

This is my first message on this forum - I am hoping to get any feedback on it...

OK, this is the issue: Earlier this week, I installed a wireless network card, brand Belkin, in the (old) PC of my parents. Installation went smoothly, internet through an Access Point and a wired router (both brand Belkin) works fine (I am writing this on their computer right now).

PC specs:
Intel PII, 350 MHz,
Asus P2B-VM (Intel 440BX chipset),
NVidia Riva TNT2 Model 64,
192 Mb SDRAM,
"Wired network" card (brand 3Com),
Serial port (ISA slot),
Onboard audio,
Windows ME

Every time that my folks switch the computer on, say, 2 days after having used it a previous time, the network card is not working - i.e. Windows says no drivers are installed (when checking in the Device Manager).

After re-installing the drivers (or doing a system restore, like today just a while ago), the network card is "found" and installed and working again.

So, how come Windows says no drivers are installed after, seemingly, every "cold" reboot?
Why does Windows seem to "lose" the installation of the wireless network card?

This might have been posted in the Win95/98/ME forum, but I put it here, since I rather suspect it to be a hardware thing (it is after all quite an old computer by now)... The few other threads about wireless network cards don't help me any further, and I am at a loss here. So, any comments are greatly appreciated...

Hey guys,

I recently bought a TP-LINK TL-WN350GD wireless network card, inserted it into a PCI-E slot and installed the drivers, but can't seem to get it to work. It appears in Device Manager as 'Atheros AR5007G Wireless Network Adapter' and apparently 'this device is working properly', but infuriatingly it won't detect any wireless networks. I've tried using the drivers that Windows 7 installed automatically and also the drivers that came on the disk with it, but all to no avail. When I troubleshoot the card, I get the message that 'there might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection 2 adapter', but this is all I can find. It's especially irritating as I picked the (admittedly lower-end) card because it's definitely compatible with Windows 7 (I already tried one which wasn't).

My PC has Windows 7 64-bit, has an AMD Athlon 4600 dual core CPU and 2 gigs of RAM. I can give more detailed information if you need it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hi

I bought an Acer 2301 laptop a few months ago. It has an Acer IPN 2220 wireless LAN card. A few days ago I visited my brother who has a wireless network set up in his house ? DLINK ADSL broadband router. He uses the wireless network for 1 Pc and 2 laptops. As I had my laptop I tried to connect to this network but couldn?t. I tried finding wireless networks and it said there were no wireless networks found in range. I disabled and re-enabled the LAN card. I uninstalled and re-installed it. I disabled my firewall. All to no avail. The network is not running encrypted and my brother said he had no trouble connecting all his wireless cards. Can anyone explain why my wireless LAN card couldn?t find anything?

Thanks
 

A:Wireless Lan Card Cant Detect Network

there could be several reasons for this, the card could have simply had its "radio" turned off. Most internal cards have a switch function to turn on and off their ability to detect networks. This is usually either a special button or a key combo. Check the BIOS, the card may have to be enabled in there as well as in device manager. Some systems I've encountered come with wireless disabled in the BIOS as default. Also, are you sure your brother's router was "broadcasting" its SSID. Most routers have the ability to turn this off. This causes you to have to know the SSID and config the card manually.

Hi!I am forwarding a question to you guys regarding my fathers HP Envy 17 LeapMotion-notebook. He's gotten fiber internet, but the wifi-card does not allow him to connect to the 5Ghz-band. He has 1000/1000 so sticking to the 2.4 is not an option. The card that's present in his computer is the Intel Wireless-N 7260, and apparently there's two cards with the same name. I ran netsh wlan show drivers in the command prompt and everything except 802.11a showed up. But! The 7260 card is no longer sold here in Sweden (or atleast not the one i was looking for), so i was wondering what card he should get that would be kinda like plug&play for the notebook?Best RegardsMattias

We will need the full model number to be 100% sure but I believe you are not limited by the HP whitelist.  802.11a operates on 5ghz but what you really want is 802.11ac. The Intel 7260 does come in two flavors, the 7260n and the 7260ac and you want the latter of the 2.  I believe this is your Service Manual: Manual Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 802.11ac 1×1 WiFi + BT 4.0 Combo Adapter 710662-001 This US seller ships to Sweden: http://www.ebay.de/itm/HP-Intel-3160HMW-Dual-Band-WiFi-Bluetooth-710662-001-/122181270600?hash=item1... Above is the best 5ghz card in the Manual.  http://www.ebay.de/itm/intel-dual-band-wireless-ac-7260HMW-WiFi-Bluetooth-4-0-Half-Mini-PCI-E-Wifi-C... That is the 7260ac. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:promlems with wireless network card

Well, the obvious question is why not get another cable. If the cable run is long, you can use a $15 Ethernet switch to split the cable to go to the two machines.

If you really want to get the wireless running, we'll need more info. Do you have encryption enabled on the router? If so, disable it until you get the wireless link running, then enable it as a separate step. If that doesn't help, let's see this:

Open a DOS window and type:

Problem is, the ones I see online seem to be for the PCI-e slot. Well, I have a video card already occupying my PCI-e slot. It's also really thick so it also takes up two slots )covering what looks like to be the spot I would put the Network Card).

A:Which Wireless Network Card for my MOBO ?

Yes, you can use a PCI wireless adapter. There are various brands and models but I don't have a specific recommendation because I don't happen to use one. Most are not too expensive.

As an alternative you can use a USB wireless adapter. I've used one on the end of a 3' USB cable extension so I could move it around for better reception. I have this installed on one of my PCs and it's a Rosewill USB adapter with an external antenna (RNX-G1). The RNX-G1 has been superseded by newer models which I haven't tried yet but it works well and I like it a lot. I've used a couple other brands but Rosewill has worked the longest and most reliably so far. USB wireless adapters are fairly inexpensive and very simple to install. You just install the driver/software package first, then plug in the USB adapter, it gets detected by the PC, then select your wireless network (SSID) and enter the password. It gets its power from the USB port and needs no external power source.

Another alternative which I use on my main computer is a wireless AP or access point. These are generally much more expensive and require a bit of work to configure and set up but once it is set up all you do is plug it into your computer's LAN port via a network cable. No software needs to be installed on your PC except for the LAN driver which should already be installed.

When I bought my laptop a few months ago, the store was giving away wireless routers as a promotion, and its model # is WBR-1310, D-Link brand. It might not even be the right thing, but if it's not, I'll just sell it or give it away.

I hope that I can get some suggestions on a good quality, fast and reliable Wireless Network Card, after searching I have found that Windows 7 and USB adapters don't work well together, so I would like get an internal Wireless Card.

A:Wireless Network Card Suggestions

I'm not bias towards Intel, but you can try Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 for Desktop. It has a PCI-E x1 connection. In addtion, you can also replace its supplied Intel Centrino 6205 with a wireless AC adapter like Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 mini-PCIE half height card. I'm not sure if the integrated bluetooth will work though. I currently use Wireless-N version of Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 without the integrated bluetooth and I get stable wireless N connection and an average ping of 1 ms to the router. So far no driver issues with the Intel 7260.

BTW, this is on a laptop. I don't know how would the driver perform at the desktop platform, but you can also try ASUS PCE-N15 PCIE internal wifi adapter though it's not a dual band adapter.

The computer has the correct drivers for the adapter and it sees that it's there and doesn't have any problems, but it won't see my home network no matter what I do. It's next to another computer that has a Linksys USB wireless adapter that picks up the wireless signal just fine (Good signal quality according to Vista)

I tried to re-install with no luck (it said it was already installed and I couldn't reinstall) and I also tried to roll back drivers, but that didn't do anything either. I tried to use the zero configuration utility with Windows and tell it to connect to my home network, but it still wouldn't do it.

I'm running out of ideas... is there something I haven't been thinking of?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Wireless PCI Card Doesn't See Network

I have purchased a Linksys WDT11 wireless PCI card with slot and WPC11 PCMCIA wireless card for a remote computer. Since I am running XP, I downloaded and installed the drivers from Linksys' website. The drivers load ok, but I keep getting an error message: "Code 10, unable to start".

I enquired of Linksys tech support over a week ago, and have had no response. I know that this will work, but have no idea how to correct. Running XP Home on Gateway 450 PIII w/256 ram.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Uninstall the drivers!!! I tried the XP drivers, and they did the same thing. IF it hang on uninstall/rollback, manually delete ntcwd10.inf (or something very similar) from the windows/inf directory.

Can't believe I am posting this but I don't have time to spend on Newegg looking for the category that I know I just am not seeing.

What my friend needs is a network card (wireless) that can plug into his motherboard for his Dell desktop. Not sure how I am not seeing them on Newegg, but if somebody could point them out, it would be nice. Thanks!

Hey

Im using Windows XP SP2 and I just recently formatted and Im using the same setup as before so I cant figure out what Im doing wrong, but basically if I use my Wireless Software I can connect to the network, and it sends packets, but recieves none (so it doesnt work). But if I turn Windows Wireless Zero Config on then it works fine. The problem is Wireless Zero Config is awful for games.
My network uses WEP encryption which Ive entered, so Im quite stuck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Hi all, Lenovo Z70-80.   Frequently dropping wireless internet connection.  Ran the Lenovo diagnostic tool.  Support told me I needed a new wireless card.  Several WEEKS later it arrived... New card looks a bit different and larger and has more pins but still fit in the slot. With the new card when I boot the machine I get (before windows or anything else loads):"Unathorized Wireless network card is plugged in. Power off and remove it" Get back on the phone with support and was given 2 options - either sending the machine away for who knows how long or reinstalling the operating system which I don't understand how it will work if the machine won't boot to windows! Neither really work for me since the machine is used everyday all day for work. Any advice on what to do - or who at Lenovo I need to beg for a proper wifi card? Thanks in advance! Old CardNew Card

Hi, I have recently just finished building up my own PC, and after installing Windows 7 x64, I realised that I never had a wireless card to connect to the internet. I went out and bought a wireless card (Micronet SP906GK) and installed that into my computer. After installing I rebooted my pc and for some reason the wireless card could not pick up any networks at all. I then installed the latest Windows 7 drivers for the card but it still did not pick up any networks. This was the case until last night when I tried troubleshooting, and after rebooting my PC it managed to pick up one network (which isn't mine). Since then the wireless card has not managed to pick up any other networks other than that one and I cannot think of anything else to do.

If anyone can help me it will be much appreciated!
Thanks,
Callum.
 

A:Purchased new wireless card but It can't pick up my network

Is the antenna securely fastened and out in the open where it has a fighting chance to function? (Some people hide it in a corner boxed in by the computer.)
