HIMy HP250G3NOTEBOOK network adaptor won't connect to our home WiFi but other devices can still connect. I have tried disabling and enabling the network adaptor, making sure air plane mode is off, refreshing the PC, restarting the router and troubleshooting the network adaptor. I have also followed the steps on the HP network and troubleshooting. The WiFi can only connect if I plug in an Ethernet cable, but it is very inconvenient.  Thanks,Vanesia.

Hi All,

Got a problem with the above wifi device. This is pci-e. Downloaded the 64 bit vista driver from the abit website (tried all three mirrors!) and the driver and piece of software install fine. But then the software won't recognise that the card exists ('could not find abit airpace wifi network adaptor' error) and vista says it cannot find a suitable driver. The device just shows as 'unknown device' in device manager and wants to reinstall driver. Has anyone else had this problem with this card and how did they resolve it, if at all?

Best regards,

Chris Lloyd

A:abit airpace wifi network adaptor and vista 64

I've had the same problem and completely turning off the computer has helped. The air pace card seems to still have power even when the computer is turned off so you'l have to completely unplug the power supply and wait about 5 minutes.

Just purchased new sony cybershot camera (dsc -w115), which takes great pics.

Now here comes the doh...part !!

The memory stick fits into my laptop (advent 5302), as did my previous sd cards ( a lot bigger) from my older Kodak digi camera, a little bit sticks out for me to retieve, but when I tried to show a friend my photos by slotting the memory stick into the side of her laptop
( 2 years old), it disappeared and I ended up with a pair of surgical tweezers doing a very tricky operation to get it back. Luckily, no damage to my stick or her laptop.
So is this where the memory stick pro duo ADAPTOR comes in ?,do I insert my stick into adaptor first for using with older laptops etc, or am I completely off the mark here.

Have looked on Sony website etc but not sure what this piece of equipment is for

Hey so at my apartment complex all I have is wifi available, there seems to be a ethernet port on the wall downstairs but I dont think it works. I was thinking of getting a Wifi to Ethernet adapter but I do not know if that actually will make it so my connection is stable and doesnt get affected by people streaming etc. I notice that it says it would pick up wifi and then I could use my ethernet to connect it to my computer. I don't really understand how all this works. I would like some help figuring out what to do. I can always try that port. or is there something I can plug into that port that would give me a stable connection? I'm running out of ideas. Anything helps. Thanks!

I have a Dell Latitude D610 Laptop. I recently installed a new hard drive which came with Windows XP Professional installed on it . When I boot up it says New Hardware found and opens up Device Manager. It shows a PCI device and asks me to install the driver . I have tried letting the Hardware Device Manager find the software, downloaded the latest driver from the Dell Support website and tried to install it manually but Device Manager cant find any software that will work. Now when I open Device Manager there are 2 PCI adaptors shown doth with big yellow ? by them.

Hi! I currently connect to the internet through a router with a wired connection. I'm thinking of setting up a wifi connection, since I got a deal on a new router that has wifi capabilities. I've been looking at wifi adaptors, and the usb type is a lot cheaper. However, most of them seem to be made for laptops. Is there a usb wifi adaptor for a desktop computer? If so, what's a good recommendation for one? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ok so I want to hook my Toshiba laptop to the TV so I can do whatever with it in the living room.

Now there are two ways I can see one is a HDMI cable - bit messy and I really don't like having cables draped across the floor etc
The other I saw a You Tube clip on a plug in box for the TV so that I can use the laptop to the TV. However this fellow said it was "a box" - well not being Einstein or a clairvoyant I have no idea what these devices are called and hunting through my local suppliers listings I cannot find what this device is so can someone please tell me what exactly is it called??

The only concern is security of course so will my laptop signal be picked up by others close by if so I am not real sure about using this method.

It could be a "Slingbox" or a "Boxee-Box"

That's all I can think of.

Ah yes, the famous Windows 10 USB WIFI adaptor driver issue. You could try unzipping the drivers and from device manager selecting "have disk" and pointing to the inf file. But I have my doubts for success from posts like this:



F5D8053N - Windows 10 - Belkin Community

I currently have a desktop MB that has wifi on the chip and this solved my USB wifi problems once and for all. You can check this thread when I had a similar problem (post 15).
Solved USB Wi-Fi adapter not showing on tray - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

The D Link DWA-182 firmware C worked for me in Windows 10. You have to make sure you have the revision C model (not A). However, even with that there were issues. Windows 10 recognized it as the realtek (chip) drivers. To get the D link drivers showing up (and working) in Windows 10 I had to extract the drivers and point to them in device manager. Then they installed and I didn't have disconnect issues after that (well, most of the time).

You could try this D Link one but make sure your store has a return policy just in case. Otherwise I would suggest a search on all the adaptor manufacturers (Asus, etc) to see if their model actually has a Windows 10 driver to download. If they don't, good possibility there will be an issue.

You mean your wifi software (not windows built-in utility) cannot find you wifi network?

Can someone explain to me the diff between a TNC and SMA connector in a wifi antenna? A company has asked that I change out all of their wifi access points with new linksys AP's they purchased. The current AP's have a antenna connected with a cable. The cable looks similar to a standard COAX cable, but smaller. The connector is also smaller.

When I remove the standard antenna from the linksys, the plug is too large for the current cable.

I belive that I need a TNC to SMA adaptor, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know? Also, can the connectors be purchased at a hardware/electronics store, or is online the best place?
 

A:Wifi Antenna (TNC vs SMA Adaptor)

This is the TNC connector.

Here's the SMA Connector.

Note the subsection for the SMA specification that specifies the Reverse SMA, which is commonly used for most WiFi equipment antennas.

Your LAN connection may be disabling the Wireless, hence the problem. Open Wireless Network Connection (the one on the right) and go into Properties - Configure - Advanced - see any options that would disable Wireless when LAN is connected.

Hi,

computer has some issues with the wifi adaptor. If i install it, and set windows to control it, at some point, after "connecting" for >5 mins, it reports: "Connected"... kinda ridiculous, because if i punch in ipconfig /all in the console, it does not show this adaptor's IP settings at all. If I change the IP setting thourgh the properties window, it prompts me to reboot. After the reboot, the settings are not applied!

However, in the device manager, it shows the device and it says it's working fine.

USB driverupdate did not solve the problem, I can't find a bios update any more... any better ideas? PLEASE?

I have a T61 7665-AC2 with an Intel wifi link 4965 adaptor.  Since I installed windows 8.1, the laptop boots with limited internet connectivity.  I have to run the network diagnostics which resets the adaptor and it is fine.  Until the next time I boot the laptop.  I have driver version 13.4.0.139.  Windows says it is the latest one, but I found 14.03 on the Lenovo site...except it isn't for windows 8 and it won't install and says Access is Denied (but I am the admin on the PC).  I tried the Intel site but it says my adaptor is no longer supported.   Any ideas?  Thanks!

A:WiFi Adaptor problems with Windows 8.1

Intel 4965AGN is not supported in Windows 8. I have the same issue, except my connectivity is fine but I get random BSOD's involving 'netwlv64.sys'. If you search Google for 'netwlv64.sys windows 8' you'll find tons of people with the same issue. In my case, it's even worse now in 8.1 than it was in Win 8. I've read that some people have had success installing the Vista driver, but also that this creates other (reliability) issues. Your best bet is simply to purchase a new wifi card. I ordered an atheros card from eBay a couple of weeks ago, but haven't received it yet. Note that if you do purchase a new, non Lenovo approved, wifi card, you will first have to install the Middleton BIOS to remove the "Whitelist".

I have always connected to the internet via a external USB WiFi adapter. Now I need to connect to the one that is built in to my mother board. I went to Device Manager and Enabled it, but it isn't discovered. Do I need to do something else.

And when I connect to it, finally, how do I make sure its a 'private' network and not public.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Alright so I have a laptop however I am unable to use its current wifi card for my wifi reciever booster I am making. So I needed a usb connector. I got the RNX-EasyN1. When I first got it I installed the driver off the disk. However I was still unable to get the device to detect any networks or for that matter enable itself in the network connections screen. So I went to their site and got the latest driver. Still did not work. I spent a few hours searching google, reinstalling restarting, and in general doing anything that seemed like the normal procedure when I cant get something to work. Yet here I sit with a wireless adaptor that every one else on google says works perfectly fine, and it wont work for me. Help please.

A:RNX-EasyN1 Wifi Adaptor wont work.

you can try to manually put the network info in.

or it sounds like you got a defective card you may want to return it and get a new one

I've just installed a wireless PCI adaptor (Tenda W322P 11N) in my desktop PC but I can't 'enable' it - every time I double click it starts to enable then stops and leaves it disabled with no warning or error messages.

The system is definitely seeing it as it's listed in Device Manager, and if I bring up Network Connections (using ncpa.cpl) it's listed and shown as disabled. Why would windows stop it from being enabled??

I've tried downloading new drivers from the manufacturers site in case the drivers on the disk were old - no difference. I uninstalled it and removed the drivers and then re-booted so windows would use it's own drivers - no difference.

It seems the system has a problem with it, but surely ONE of the drivers would work if it was a driver problem?

A:Windows wont let me enable wifi adaptor

the software driver on their site is up to version 4.
If you are running on the driver off the disk it may be problematic.

Hello,
I have a Tablet PC with Windows 8 Release Preview installed.
The Tablet PC is equipped with a x86 Intel Atom Z670 processor and the Marvell 88w8787 Wifi/Bluetooth chip.
(Also ref. as AZUREWAVE_AW-NM387 WiFi/Bluetooth)

Previously, Windows 7 installed with wifi connection was working good via the Marvell AVATAR Wireless-N Network Controller (SDIO) - Network adaptor driver installed. File version: 14.57.8025.39, dated: 02/29/2012.

After doing both a upgrade install(keeping Win7 files) and also a CLEAN install of Windows 8 onto this same Tablet PC, my Network Adaptor is stating errors, and not working.

Kindly, how do I go about fixing this problem?

Hello,
I'm still having trouble installing a driver that supports by x86 Intel/Atom Z670 Tablet PC running Windows 8.

The WLAN module inside my Tablet PC is from Azurewave.

To be specific, '88F105-012000 WLAN CARD.AW-NM387..802.11 b/g/n SDIO...W/BLUETOOTH(V3.0)..LEAD-FREE..AZUREWAVE'.

My Tablet PC wifi connection worked OK with Windows 7, but now fails with Windows 8.

Any advice and/or recommendation?

BTW, this is related to the earlier POST: Marvell AVATAR Wireless-N Network Controller (SDIO) - Network adaptor driver installed. File version: 14.57.8025.39, dated: 02/29/2012.

This driver installed and worked for Windows 7, but fails in Windows 8.
This driver is the driver that automatically gets identified by Windows UPDATE for my Tablet PC type.

When you look at Device manager what does it say about your ethernet card or network adapters. do you have any yellow Exclaimation marks indicating any problem hardware.

Hey. I just had a new harddrive put into my laptop. Only to realize that I cannot connect to the network because there is no network adaptor installed. My other laptop has a Broadcom 802.11g network adaptor so i am looking for a download that I can put on a disk and then upload to the laptop. Does this sound like a good plan? Also, I am not exactly sure I know how to download to a disc.....any help? Thanks.

Good morning

I am using Vista Home Basic. I have a home network set up using a TrendNet Wireless router. My desktop is hard wired to the Wireless router. When my computer sits idle for a time, usually goes into sleep mode. The Network adaptor shuts off. When I try to use the computer again I have to restart it sometimes more than once to get the Network adaptor to become enabled again. My question is how can I stop this from happening? Any suggestions would be great appreciated.

Thanks

Try going into Device Manager, open the properties for your network adapter, click the Power Management tab and disable the "Allow Windows to shut off this device to save power" option. This may help !

Good Luck !

A:Best Network Adaptor (FOR PC)??? Need help

Do you want to go wired or wireless? For gaming Wired is better, faster and less latency.

Most computers come equipped with a wired Ethernet card, so unless you have a really old PC you should have that already. Wireless you'd have to purchase if thats the way you want to go.

Hello Guys,

So my office PC keeps going to unidentified network and I have to disable and enable the network adapter for it to get an IP address and connect back to the network. I'm using a LAN connection not wireless by the way.

I have not seen this issue on any other computers/laptops on the network, only on this specific system so I'm thinking its not a problem with my DHCP or anything.

Any other information required please let me know and any help in fixing this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

A:Network adaptor keeps going to 'unidentified network'

I don't see it often but usually unplug the Ethernet cable, use Device Manager to Uninstall the NIC/Network Interface Card/adapter, reboot and let the computer find the NIC and install it. Sometimes it's necessary to get new/fresh drivers for the NIC.

Hello Spasmoid, welcome to SF!

A couple of questions to help me understand what happens better...
- From your (limited) system spec's I gather you're connecting this on a tower (desktop pc)?
- Did this tower did have a previous wireless USB connection?
- Did the pc on which it DID work already have a USB connection + is that PC also a tower/desktop (i.e. not a laptop)
- Did you try removing all related installed drivers, reboot, install software from disk first and only then connect the device?

if my Router puts out a G signal will it do any good to upgrade from a G adaptor to an N : or does an N only give better connection performance when picking up a signal from an N type Router.
 

A:Solved: N or G network adaptor?

The only possible benefit is maybe longer range, though that's questionable. Most 802.11n adapters use MIMO which will usually help with range issues. Obviously, there will be no speed advantage.

Acer TravelMate 4230 Windows XP SP3 2 years old.

When I turned the laptop on after using it for over 12months I recieved this message:

Found New Hardware

"Network and Computing Encryption/Decryption Controller"

It has something to do with the missing Network Adaptor and yes I tried installing all the latest Acer Network Lan Drivers.

Re-imaging the laptop to Acers original image did not fix the problem.

It is not finding the normal network adaptor which a network cable plugs into.

It only finds the Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection which works with no problems.

I have tried everything but can not find the answer, Acer told me it was to do with the Windows drivers ???

Can anyone assist

my computer keeps disconnecting and I get an error message that tells me that my network wireless adaptor needs resetting,
which I do, this fix lasts a while and then it disconnects again, I have taken the computer back to PC World and they
have put a diagnostic check on it and it says that the adaptor is ok. Can anyone tell me if this can be fixed, if I reset
my computer back to factory settings could this cure the problem.

It may not be your computer at all, it may be your router. Try unplugging power to the router with the Wifi on it, for 10 seconds, then plug it back in, if your Wifi connection is saved in the Wifi List, it will auto reconnect.

Hello all,

My PC, which is running windows 7 64bit was recently infected with the Adobe flash player update/windows system32 services trojan. After failing to fix it myself i passed it onto a so called expert. He seems to have fixed the trojan but now im having a problem with PC not recognizing the network adapter for a few minutes when switched on and when awakened from sleep mode. I have since found out that combofix was used to remove the trojan. Upon googling this it seems that incorrect use of combofix may be the cause of my connectivity problems. Can anyone offer some help? Thanks.

What you are going to have to do is remove the network card and find out the manufacturer and model number of it. The on another computer go to that manufacturer's web site and download the Windows XP driver for this NIC card and install it. Apparently the drivers for this card are not part of the Windows disks which I find kind of strange seeing as you are using the Recovery disks for the computer. One other thing you might want to check is device manager and see how many drivers were not installed and then write them down and try the driver disk that came with the recovery disk set and install everything driver wise off of the disk.

Hi,
I am having a Toshiba Satellite A105 - S 4114 with Windows XP, SP3. I was using the LAN & Wireless network adaptor without any problem. A week back Windows XP got updated & from then LAN & Wifi network adaptor are not getting detected.
In the device manage both the adaptors are not preset. If I add the adaptors from the ‘Add Hardware’ its getting added as Intel PRO/1000 PL network connection#2 & Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network connection#2 but its not working.

I am using the following adaptors with version (working):-
LAN network adaptor: Intel PRO/1000 PL network connection, Version 9.2.24.0

Wireless network adaptor: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network connection, Version 10.1.0.13

I tried to download the new drives for both the adaptors, but nothing is working.
Please let me know the solution

Thanks in advance,
Vini

Hiya Vini_2603.

It`s odd that they`ve disappeared from Device Manager and not just flagged up as a problem item. Do you have anything at all under Network Adapters?

In Dev Man, right-click the computers name at the very top and `Scan for hardware changes` to see if that comes up with anything.

The drivers are no good if the adapters aren`t being seen to start with !

I had to reformat my hard drive on a Dell inspiron 1525 laptop with O. S. Vista. I can not get on to the internet and I am told I need to down load the network adaptor. I am using a wireless system connected to a Netgear 60 router. This laptop worked OK on my network before reformat. Also my old laptop using XP is connected OK. I have visited numerous sites and I am not able to find a down load or have success downloading . I am trying to download on to my desktop computer that I am using Windows 8.1. Then I would load it onto a flash drive and load my Vista. Sounds simple but I am having a very difficult time . I tried the Intel site and received a message that "This package is not supported on this platform or operating system". This message appeared on several sites. I need help. Thanks.
