Last night I was on the Internet and suddenly lost the connection. At first the laptop said that I was still connected to my network but that there was no Internet connection. I called Verizon and they said that the router was fine. But afterwards the computer couldn't recognize the network, or any other wireless networks. Today, thinking that the network adapter might need to be updated, I tried updating it but the device manager says that this is the most recent update. Yet it's still not working and I can't get online without an ethernet cable. What should I do?

usually my adapter would sometimes get knocked off the modem and the internet would stop working and i'd have to go to network settings and reconnect and go through the whole long process. i right clicked the internet icon at the bottom right hand corner and saw "repair". being curious, i clicked it thinking it would automatically fix the connection problem. well.......boy was i wrong. it said it was disabling the adapter and in a panic, i took the adapter out of the laptop. when i put it back into the laptop, only one of the LED lights were on. then i went into "device manager" and saw that the BCM5701,Gigabit Ethernet had a yellow exclamation mark infront of it. how do i fix this??? i realy need to fix this quickly!!!!! thanks in advance for your kind help.

I just bought a new Linksys E1200 N speed router to help with my internet, since I share it with 8 other people. But after I got everything working, the internet was really slow, then it just kicked me off and said my adapter wasn't compatible. It's a Linksys rangeplus USB wireless adapter (WUSB100).

How can I get my adapter working with my router?
 

A:Wireless Adapter Not Working

Been reading a few other websites and a lot of people say the firewall on the router significantly damages speed. But if I turn it off won't that invite viruses? I still have my computer firewall but still.

Edit: So I think there's a firewall on the router, plus the network is password protected, I think my adapter has security too, and then there's my computer's firewall. Should I disable a couple of these?

Greetings,

Firstly I'm a total newbie when it comes to computers. So that said, here is my issue. My wireless was connected just fine earlier this morning. I put it in sleep mode as I headed out for an hour. Came back and it was not connected. I can't see my wireless adapter only my LAN adapter. Says it was never installed. I've browsed the forums and tried some of the advice given to others but no luck on my end. Will I have to take my machine apart to check the onboard card? Or what should I do next. My other devices are connected except my desktop. Thanks in advance.

Welcome Inthewake2011,
Sorry it has been so long to get to you for assistance , For starters, please go to device manager and make sure you do not have yellow caution on the driver for your network. If none, then go to your Network and Sharing program in Control Panel and have it config. itself to your internet provider . If this fails to fix your issue, please post back as other tests are in order at that point.

I just recently purchased a new Windows 8 PC that does not have a built in wi-fi adapter. I have a Zyxel G-220v3 wireless adapter that does not seem to want to work in my new PC (I know it is at least 4 years old.) When I plug it into the USB port in the front of the PC, nothing happens. When I open up the devices and printers tab (from the control panel), I see it listed under "unspecified" with an exclamation point next to it, stating that it "needs troubleshooting." I right click to troubleshoot and am given a message stating that the driver is not installed. I installed the driver, but it still gives the same error message. Do I need to just give in and buy a newer (compatible) wireless adapter? If so, can anyone recommend a wireless adapter that will be compatible with Windows 8?

Thanks!

It installed on Windows XP and ran fine but now windows
now installs the drivers and thats it. Nothing else. The
card doesn't appear on the list of network cards. Then
though after a few restarts it asks for the drivers again.
Also the card says it supports Windows Vista. So im
supposing that it will work on windows 7. My old graphics
worked of Vista drivers so I don't see why this card
can't. The computer does recognize that there is a card
though.

Further the device manager says the network adapter (Atheros AR9285) is working properly.

I know the wireless router is working properly because I am using it on my computer. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Italifin, welcome to sevenforums. Do you have the wireles signal strength bars showing in the system tray at the bottom right? (It looks like 5 vertical bars of ascending sizes) If you do have it, is there a red X through it or a yellow circle?. If either of these, right click on it and select to "troubleshoot connection" and see what the troubleshooter comes up with.

I have a D-Link wireless adapter (DWL-G122) that I have been trying to install on a Windows XP computer. After various uninstalls and reinstalls of the drivers and programs that come with it, I have found currently the best way to get it to work is leave the D-Link programs uninstalled and have Windows install the driver itself.

The problem is, it doesn't seem to keep the drivers on restarting, so every time the computer is restarted, it must be installed again. This is not ideal.

It occasionally worked when I installed from the CD, but the D-Link programs that would install with the drivers created problems of their own.

Is there anything that could be causing these drivers to be deleted every session? Or perhaps they are not being installed correctly by Windows?

The computer is running Windows XP SP3
 

A:Help: D-Link Wireless Adapter Not Working

Welcome to TSG.
What I might do is display the adapter in device manager.Go to the drivers tab.Note what library and driver are being pointed to.Is that the correct version driver? If not,I might go through the update driver script,and point to the driver and location that you want to use and see if that sticks over a re-boot.

My friend recently had me set up a wireless network for him. For a while, it was working fine, but recently his wireless adapter quit working. He has a Linksys router and an Encore adapter. Both computers are running XP Pro.
The reason we believe it is the adapter and not the connection is because the "Link" light on the adapter will not turn on and Windows tells us the device has malfunctioned. Windows suggests replacing the device, but we hope that a 2-month old device won't need to be replaced. Also, I am posting this message from another computer connected to his network, so it's not his internet connection.

Thank you for all your help.
P.S. my friend will be making a TechGuy profile soon and will be taking over this thread at that time.

Hi guys.

Last night when I turned on my computer for normal usage, the wifi lit wouldn't even turn on. Obviously it's not working.

I tried restarting the computer (which will generally solve the problem. Not this time), then I uninstalled the drivers, restarted the computer and reinstalled them again. And nothing seems to work.

The WLAN adapter is seen on the BIOS, and the Device Manager too. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I don't know what to do! any suggestions?

Is it a USB adapter? Try switching it in a different USB port. If its an internal adapter, try removing it and plugging it back in.

Hi: See if installing this utility and restarting the PC allows you to turn on the wireless network adapter by using the software interface. This package contains the HP Wireless Assistant for the supported notebook/laptop models and operating systems. The HP Wireless Assistant is a user application that provides a way to control the enablement of individual wireless devices (such as Bluetooth, WLAN, or WWAN devices) and that shows the state of the radios for these wireless devices. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp45001-45500/sp45222.exe There is also a newer driver you can use for the BCM wireless card your notebook has... 5.100.82.139   Jul 13, 2012 http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp57501-58000/sp57965.exe

I've followed some on the steps provided on here, but I still can not connect to the internet via wireless option error message appears as "there might be a problem with the driver for the wireless network connection adapter" I've downloaded the latest version from the Dell support site and it still doesn't work. please help. I'm available to connect if I plug in the Ethernet cable directly to my laptop.

Hi,

I've had a Linksys wireless adapter for a little less than a year now with no problems. Recently it has ceased to work. When I plug it in to any USB port, the light on the adapter does not blink like it normally does, and I can't search for networks. The adapter doesn't even show up in the device manager. I don't understand why the device would all of a sudden stop working.

it may have just broken
if its not in device manager you could try re-installing the drivers you got with the device or downloading and copying onto the machine

I recently did a clean installation of Windows 7 Home Premium on an old laptop of mine. I installed the driver for the wireless adapter and everything started working fine. Now, however, it seems the wireless adapter has stopped working entirely, as in, it's not a driver issue. So far, I've tried reinstalling the drivers, starting windows in safe mode with networking, and then restoring the system to a point where I knew it had been working, and none of these have worked; which leads me to the conclusion that this is a hardware-based issue. So I'm just wondering about what possibilities there are for this sort of problem to exist?

Also check, open IE, click Tools, Internet Options, Connection Tab and then the LAN Tab and in the window that opens make sure that all the check boxes are clear, if not clear them and close IE and re-open IE.

A:Wireless adapter 802.11g installed but not working

802.11n can be problematic especially in compatibility with other vender's devices. 11g should be easy.

You need to use a WIRED connection to configure your WiFi router;
find the WiFi settings
set the channel
set the SSID (don't use the default!)
leave encryption off (set this latter)
and set the mode {a,b,g,n} to match your systems WiFi device
save the settings
CHANGE the admin password and save again
Now disconnect the wired connection and enable the WiFi device;
Look for your SSID and connect.

Once this works, then you can get back into the router (wired connection)
and set the encryption (WPA2) should be your first choice and WEP the last.

I've got a Dell inspiron n4010 laptop running Windows 7. It recently got a virus which I believe I removed. The problem now is that it cannot connect to the internet. I do not see the adapter in device manager and attempts to identify it or install drivers for it causes the laptop to crash. I have tried using a repair disk and connecting to wifi through a usb adapter but all attempts have failed.

I am thinking of just replacing the wireless adapter. Based on this what is your opinion of the following?
1) Do you think this will solve my problem
2) How do I determine which cards are compatible with this device?

Thanks,
Matt

We don't know the nature of the virus and how you believe you removed it, so my guess at this point is that the Windows operating system is damaged.

Are you unable to connect both wireless and ethernet?

Hi,

I just purchased a Pendo Pad 10.1 running Windows 10. I tried to connect it to my home WiFi and found that there was no option for this although researched proved there should be. When I troubleshoot it said that there is a driver or hardware problem with the Broadcom 802.11abgn Wireless SDIO Adapter. I factory reset the tablet and the problem still persists. I've tried to find the drivers online but haven't been able to and I'm not sure how to find the right ones when the tablet wont connect to the internet. When I purchased it I was told that it had been used very briefly and was factory reset, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the problem. If you know where I could find the drivers online or another way of fixing the problem please let me know.

Device Status
This device cannot start. (Code 10)

Driver Version: 5.93.102.19

Thank you all for reply. After contacting Pendo, I;m told that this particular model of PendoPad looses WiFi drivers after a reset. So Pendo has had quite a few very unhappy customers with the same problem, they also tell me that Microsoft is aware of the problem, and a will eventually, maybe, in the near future ,hopefully soon have a solution.
Pendo will replace my PendoPad with a comparable one if Microsoft is unable help.

Have tried uninstalling drivers, removing device in device manager. Then reinstalling, drivers first then the card itself as per the instructions. Get part of the way through then it asks me to insert windows98se cd. When I do it says it cannot find file iphlpapi.dll. And so that's where I'm stuck. Running search I do have file iphlpapi.dll on my computer at c:\windows\vcm. But if I type that in it is still no good. Have tried downloading iphlpapi.dll from the internet but then I get message cannot find services.

Have tried restoring the registry to a time when it was working but it still doesn't work.

Hi Nick,

I have my old Win98SE disk slaved to my WinXP Pro SP2 and found iphlpapi.dll in what would be: C:\Windows\System

Faced with your situation, I would try to copy the file from C:\Windows\vcm to C:\Windows\System and try to resume what you are doing to completion.

DWA-131: Wireless-N Nano USB Adapter - Technical support D-Link

There are three listed, but for Windows you need the last one (DWA-131 Firmware v1.20).

The device uses a Realtek driver because it's chipset is made by Realtek.
It's not unusual for device manufacturer's to use chipsets made by a well-established third party, especially where wireless devices are concerned.

What kind of adapter? PCI card, PCMCIA card, USB, internal, external.
What does Device Manager show for the adapter?
What does ipconfig /all show for the adapter.
Can you connect by ethernet cable with no problems?
Could be corrupted drivers. The adapter has died. TCP/IP stack problems.

Did the Network Adapter get installed when you tried to install it? If not then did you get any message regarding success or failure about your efforts?

I think that things should work if you use your original Home Premium DVD that was supplied by Toshibs.

Assuming that's a power LED, that could be a dead adapter. Plug it into a USB in another computer and see if the power LED comes on.

A:Netgear wireless adapter not working (W7 upgrade)

I would think, that with all that legacy hardware, perhaps your best bet would be to borrow (friend, relative, neighbor) a more current USB wireless adapter and see if you can get that to work with Win7 and possibly check your theory about Widows Updates. Or alternately just bite the bullet and purchase a more current card or usb device yourself that has Win 7 drivers or native compatability. Go here for info Windows 7 Compatibility Center home

I get the Code 12 error when I look at my wireless PCI adapter in my desktop computer's device manager. I am running windows vista home premium. It is brand new so nothing is installed, just drivers and software for a BIOS update that I tried and failed. The whole error says "this device cannot find enough resources that it can use" and below it also says "If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system." I've disabled some ethernet ports and I think there are some ghost drives or something that I don't see...But i don't know how to take care of that, and I went into my setup for the BIOS and I really didn't see anything to change on the BIOS, so what do i do? the software didn't work.

Hi me again, I posted on here about 3 months ago after buying a new wireless network adapter that wasn't working and managed to sort it out. But now after getting a new motherboard etc and having to reinstall it, it's having the same problems it had before (Here's the old post - http://forums.techguy.org/networking/957125-wireless-network-adapter-wont-find.html) I tried following the steps in the same way I did before and i've got to the point no where i've restarted my pc after doing the command prompts, but this time Xirrus didn't pick up my wireless adapter or any networks etc. I don't know what to do, can anyone help?

On an HP running Vista, the blue light on the front of the laptop went out and after following several help screens about drivers, I simply rebooted and all was well. A few days later the problem returned, I tried the trouble shooting screens again to no avail, and then rebooted. That did not work this time. I was sent to the Intel site and their wireless adapter tool had an error in the script.

I have downloaded the HP driver and tried to uninstall and install it several times... rebooting in between... to no avail and no blue light!

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

Ok first off I have tried just about everything I can think of to fix this problem. This post is a last ditch effort to fix the problem. The laptop is an HP. The network adapter is having the common problem of being unable to connect to secured wireless networks. I know this is a common problem and I HAVE tried everysingle suggestion posted on this forum, including but not limited to: reinstalling drivers, making sure the adapter is configured for the appropriate gateway and even doing a full restore to factory defaults. NOTHING has worked. Any help with this situation would be greatly appreciated. Also I have tried many things that I cannot remember butif you suggest them I will know if I have already tried them. Feel free to make suggestions. Obviously this is beyond my capabilities and am open to ANY suggestion. Thanks in advance.

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007

Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

--- 3) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue

--- 4) The majority of members, have now used the drivers from the atheros driver site, which has resolved the issue.

A few days later the problem returned, I tried the trouble shooting screens again to no avail, and then rebooted. That did not work this time. I was sent to the Intel site and their wireless adapter tool had an error in the script.

Before the last reboot I unistalled the Microsoft wireless adapter. (Yes, the slider switch is in the correct postion.)

And finally, I used sytem recovery to rollback to Jan 1, the last Microsoft update.

It seems I need to reinstall the adapter and get a new driver and I have had no success doing either.

Tonight all of a sudden my Internet connection showed that it was connected but had "limited connectivity" - aka no Internet. So I restarted my router - no luck. Then I restarted my computer, and my F12 wireless button showed orange - meaning that wireless capability was turned off entirely. It wouldn't turn back on even if I pushed the button, so I went into Control Panel and did some diagnostic thing and it forced the wireless capability back on and it worked again. For about an hour. Then the button went orange again and the diagnostic couldn't turn it back on.

So, I went into wireless connections and disabled and reenabled the actual connection rather than the adapter, and it worked again - for about another hour. When it went off again, the disabling/reenabling didn't help.

I don't think it should be a driver problem seeing as I can make it turn back on for certain periods of time and it's worked fine until now. Does anyone know what to do?



Do you have iTunes or AVG installed on this system?

If you can post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all from this machine it would be helpful.

Hello.

I have an Acer Travelmate 5520 notebook that is running Windows Vista Business.

It was able to find and connect to a wireless network just fine. Then I put the machine into hibernation mode and now it won't connect.
Usually I press the button on the front of the laptop to turn wireless on or off, but now the button doesn't do anything.

In device manager, `Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter' does not show up now for some reason under `network adapters'.
This network adapter is also absent from the device manager even if "Show Hidden Devices" is active.

I didn't change anything so it's weird that this problem has now come up.

I've spent the past few hours reading threads and posts online (using a different internet connection) and have not found the solution.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Wireless Network Adapter not working.

I assume that there is nothing in Device Manager with a warning or error.

Check in the BIOS (Setup) to see if the wireless somehow got disabled in there.

If you can access the wireless card by removing a small cover on the bottom of the notebook remove and carefully and firmly replace the card (to fix any potential corrosion or looseness).

I have a Gigafast WF721-AEX adapter. I recently set up a wireless home network w/ a D-Link Di-524 wireless router. I installed a wireless pci card in my wife's pc, and it connected fine. I have an old Dell XPI-CD laptop that I installed the pcmcia card in. I could connect to the network fine without encryption set, but when I set up encryption I could not connect to the network. Any ideas as to what is wrong ? I verified the encryption key and SSID, and they were both correct. Also, the laptop would freeze up from time to time when trying to connect.

A:Wireless Network Adapter not working properly

You aren't getting an valid IP from your router because it appears as if you turned off DHCP in your IPv4 settings?

You can just right click the adaptor and choose properties, then scroll down to IPv4 settings, right click and choose properties again, enable DHCP there and save.

Hi all, I have a problem and can't seem to find anything similar online after over an hour of searching.

My connection works perfectly for 15ish minutes, then I get disconnected. The wireless icon at the bottom left has a red x and says that there are no connections available.

In the network connections window my wireless adaptor also has a red X. If I try to disable it the computer becomes completely unresponsive and I have to manually reboot it, then it works fine for 15 more minutes etc.

I ran the check for new drivers but it said it was up to date.

Computer is a Samsung r530 laptop.
Wireless adapter is Atheros AR9285.
Connected to a wireless router, which seems to be working. (fine on other laptop and Ipad in the house)

The same setup has worked fine for the past year at least.

Thank a million in advance to anyone who can help me out.

A:Wireless adapter stops working after 15 minutes.

Have you changed anything on your laptop (installed software, removed software, added/removed drivers, dropped it, etc)? Is your A/V up to date, and have you scanned for viruses lately? Have you checked your event logs to see if there is anything listed that is related to your disconnects?

Hello all,
I'm having issues with my Wireless Network Adapter and am hoping you an help me. The other day I went to a friend's house and put my HP Pavillion dv2000 laptop in my bag and when I got back home the light on the front of my computer indicated that my wireless was turned off, however when I flicked the switch so it would turn on the light still indicated that it was off. I have run diagnostics on the wireless adapter several times to no avail. It only brings me to a troubleshooting page and I've tried all the options. I have tried rebooting the computer as well as disabling and enabling all wireless drivers. I have also upgraded all software concerning the adapter, but it still does not work. My computer uses Windows Vista as an operating system.
Please help, I'm utterly lost as to what to do.

Hi

I was in a hotel connected to the wireless network and when I tried to send the e-mail it got stuck in the outbox. The errors that I am getting are 0x80042108 (outgoing) and 0x80042109 (incoming).

From home I use this all the time and it works and I have never had problems before. I connected my phone and made it a hotspot - outlook sprang into life!

I am in an office location and the wireless also doesn't work, but the hotspot does (connected directly to the PC).

Just as a test on the wireless I also tried the webmail (from plusnet) and this does not work either.

Does anyone have any ideas why outlook will not work on the wireless and (without changing any settings) will work through my phone hotspots when connect by USB?

Confused

Frank

A:Outlook stopped working on wireless adapter

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

That is because you are using a different ISP who has a different outgoing server.

For example, if it was a Hilton hotel, the outgoing server may have to be something like [email protected] or whatever they decide to use.
