Preferred Solution: Solved: How do I get my Wireless Network Card to work ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys. I have a really weird issue with my Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Here are the details.

I tried to install a wireless network adapter. The installation appeared successful. Device manager tells me that the device should be working properly. It also shows up as an entry in System Information. But it does not show up in ipconfig/all and it does not even work or scan for network. When I try to use the Window diagnostic tool, it says that something is wrong with the driver.

I've tried two network adapter:
PCIe TP-LINK 450Mbps
USB D-Link DWA-160 Xtreme N Dual Band

My friend tried replacing my hard drive and did a fresh Windows 10 install and the card worked fine. So it is not a hardware issue.

Here are security softwares that I use:
Microsoft Security Essentials
Zone Alarm

I am looking for a solution that does not require me to re-install Windows 7. My Windows 7 disc is buried in a pile of boxes.

Can anyone help me to solve this mystery?

I recently switched ISPs (going from DSL to Cable), and that's when everything went wrong. In order to get the new network up and running, I needed to use a new router. I setup this network and everything seemed fine (all computers could see and connect to the new network, and even the printer could see, and connect to the new network). For whatever reason, I could not get any of the computers (one laptop running Windows 7, and one running OSX Snow Leopard) to see the printer wirelessly (works fine via USB). It would always say "printer offline."

Uninstalled an re-installed all printer drivers on all machines (printer is an HP Photosmart C7280 all in one).

The printer network diagnostic page came back clean indicating that everything was connected correctly, but when I pinged the IP address of the printer from the windows machine I'd just be bet with a "timed out" message.

This lead me to think it was something to do with the router, so I bought a $30 D-link router and set everything up again. Exact same scenario. Even after setting the network up with no security options (no WEP or WAP security).

This lead me to do a hard reset on the printer. After booting it up again I ran the network setup wizard (via the printer's LCD screen), and tried to connect to the network. This time however, the printer won't connect the the network at all! I printed the wireless network diagnostics page and it fails the "No Filtering" test. ... Read more

I have a D-Link DWL-520 V. E1 wireless card and want to install it in a computer running Windows XP. D-Link does not give technical support for this card but does have the driver for download on their website.
I downloaded the driver for WinXP and clicked the setup icon to install and it installed the Utility program but never produced the screen to install drivers like the manual says it should.

Hi, I'm trying to set up a wireless ad-hoc network between two laptops. One is an HP 530 and the other an IBM T41, both running xp pro. I've tried following guides on how to do this and configured the T41 as the host but it's not showing up in the HP530's wireless network list. I don't know if the laptops wireless is functioning correctly but they are both picking up networks within range from nearby houses.

I had some success when I installed IBM's Access connection on the T41. The T41's network then appeared in the HP530's list but I was unable to connect as it asked for a key which seems to be assigned automatically. IBM's Access connections seems only to allow other thinkpads to connect together. I've now uninstalled Access Connections.

The T41 is connected to the net via an ethernet cable and D-Link DSL-584t router. If anyone could give me some advice it would be greatly appreciated. I've spent hours trying to sort this out.

I did the nbtstat -n ipconfig /all at the command prompt on both laptops.

I have a vexing problem.

For the past few months, occasionally when I start up my computer (dell vostro running windows xp) I've had to uninstall and reinstall my wireless network driver (Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-card) before I can connect to the internet. This didn't occur w/ every startup; most of the time I could startup my computer and the wireless would work fine.

However, just recently, I had some malware on my computer, and I ran malwarebyte's anti-malware program's quick scan. Now I can't connect to the internet at all. Every single time I startup my computer, the network driver has that yellow exclamation point next to it, and under its properties it says "this device cannot start (code 10)". If I uninstall and reinstall like I normally do, the error goes away and it appears that I can connect to the wireless network fine, but I cannot access the internet at all. If I restart my computer, then the network card gives the same error.

I ran malwarebyte's full scan and it got rid of more malware, but still can't connect.

Any suggestions??

I have a Sony Vaio Z690 series that I bought about 1.5 years ago. It works great and I love it. The whole time the internet connection has been great no problem until about 3 months ago, it started disconnecting and reconnecting randomly. Often, it will show that it is connected, when it's not, then I have to manually disconnect and reconnect it only for it to disconnect again a few minutes later. Sometimes, it decides to work fine for a while, then it goes back to the problems.

I use this laptop in two different homes with two different routers and networks and in the beginning I thought it was perhaps the router connection or that I was too far, but because other people also use these networks and they have no problems and because when I ended up having the same problem in both homes regardless of how close I was to the routers, I realized that it's my computer. Also, my internet connection is perfect when I use the Ethernet outlet.

I already updated the wireless drivers from the Sony website and the problem still remains and there are no new devices that were added in any of the homes to interfere with the wireless signal. So, I am 100% sure that the problem is with the wireless network card. At this point, I have several questions:

1) Is there anything I can do to test if my wireless card is not working besides what I have already done? I don't really know where it is in the computer.

I've installed a Belkin Wireless G Desktop Card, Model F5D7000 into my Dell Dimension desktop. It uses Windows XP, version 2002 w/ Service Pack 2. It will not connect to the router, a Westell Model 327W DSL although the signal is strong and I see it as an available option. The network itself is password protected with a WEP 128-ASCII password.

I happened to come across a Linksys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter recently. I don't have a laptop right now, but I decided to take it. I have a computer built about 4 years ago by someone I don't know very well and unfortunately, after reinstalling windows and I can't find the ethernet driver, making an internet connection impossible.

I was wondering if I would be able to open up this desktop and install the wireless card. Since I know the brand, I would be able to find the drivers and hopefully get the internet working. Thanks!

Also: Strangely, the old computer connects to the internet when running Ubuntu. Somehow, I guess it doesn't need the ethernet drivers. Anyway I could get this working on Windows?

A:Solved: Wireless Notebook Network Card on a Desktop?

You would need yet another piece of hardware to use that adapter on a desktop computer. You'd need an adapter that accepted that card and then connected to an available PCI slot on the desktop. It would be cheaper and easier to just buy the right adapter instead.

Since there's nothing wrong with the adapter seeing as it works fine in Ubuntu, You need to do some troubleshooting on the Windows side. I don't see any reason to purchase anything yet.

I have a Dell Latitude C510 running Windows XP SP3 with a Netgear WPN511 wireless card. Recently I have manually cleaned out my hard drive as I lost my installation disk (I left the WINDOWS folder alone) and it managed to bring my empty space from 50% to 80%. I reinstalled my apps, drivers, changed settings, ect. and everything has worked fine. There has been no sign of any other problems besides the fact that my wireless card is being a pain. At first it would detect my network but wouldn't connect to it, then after putting in IP/DHCP/DNS info manually (despite that never being a problem before) it connected. Now it says that it is connected but the Netgear application won't stop rescanning/reconnecting to my network (despite the strong signal and having been connected) every 10 or so seconds. I can sometimes connect a weak LinkSys network from somewhere in my neighborhood but it isn't strong enough to realistically use. From what I can tell there are no available drivers for Netgear or wireless card drivers for my laptop. I'm wondering if this could be a virus which came at a coincidental time or some sort of Program File is missing and isn't installed through the initial install (unlikely), also I have no Windows Security Updates or other Automatic Updates since I have no internet (is that the problem? I can't get them... catch 22?). I've done a lot of simple troubleshooting like un/reinstalling drivers, rebooting, removing the card and rebooting, disabling networks, ect. ... Read more

A:[SOLVED] Wireless card won't stop disconnecting from network...

My first thought would be malware. Do you have any reason to believe you either are or are not infected? Run an online scan at ESET and see what comes up.

Do you do any high-risk activity like P2P filesharing?

Check Event Viewer. Maybe something is reporting a problem that might give a clue.

Use MSCONFIG to turn off all non-MS Services and all Startups and see if it's a 3rd Party Application that is causing the problem.

Use Revo Uninstaller to make certain you really are uninstalling ALL of your 3rd Party Wireless Management Software before reinstalling.

Is it necessary to reinstall? I prefer to run Windows Wireless Zero Configuration to run wireless connections.

Does a wired (LAN) connection work normally?

My Netgear MA311 802.11b PCI card sees the network of my Linksys WRT53G router, and the signal strength is high. However, when I try to connect to it, it says it's detecting the network type, then I get the error that's attached. It works fine with the cable plugged in, and I was able to connect to someone else's wireless network. The router works wirelessly with my laptop. It seems like there's something wrong with the combination of this router and this wireless card. I'm guessing that it's just a setting I need to change on the router, but I have no idea what to look for. Any ideas on where I should start?

The college my son will be attending says the students' laptops must have an "802.11b" or "802.11g+b" compatible wireless card to access the college's wireless network.

My son has a Dell Inspiron 1525, which has a wireless 1395 WLAN Mini Card. Documentation on the computer says it has an IEEE 802.11n (???)

So, will my son's wireless card work, or does he need to get something else? Does a tech-savvy person need to install this, or could I do it?

A:Solved: Is my son's wireless card compatible with college network?

Don't worry the card will work for fine.

802.11n is going to be the next wireless standard and is backwards compatible with the other two main standards.

So an N card can connect to an N, G or B network, the card should already been installed on the computer and ready to use, the IT guys at the college will probably have an open day for new students to get them setup. They usually do.

Here's what I've done so far on my laptop which I am trying to connect wirelessly to my home router: I have a Belkin wireless g notebook card #F5d701v7 and I have a Linksys wireless-g router. I have downloaded the latest belkin driver. And I downloaded the belkin card client which I have disabled, letting windows zero config run things. (You can't uninstall the card client without uninstalling the driver).

After I typed the password in my home network shows up at full strength and it is trying to connect because I can see the tiny green and yellow lights flashing on the netword card...... but it won't connect because windows error message says: "the network did not assign a network address to the computer". When I click "repair" I get this message: cannot renew your IP address.

This may help: On my pc, in which the router is plugged into, the IP number on the local area connection is different than the IP number showing on the laptop connection details.

My friend had been having some trouble with his graphics card, it kept crashing during games, and eventually seemed to burn out all together. So he bought a new one.

When he installed it, the network was gone, he had to reinstall his network card drivers, then he updated his graphics card drivers. Everything seems peachy.

He loaded up starcraft II, and the game crashes to desktop everytime, He can't even select a mode to play. So he uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them. Now the game loaded up just fine, and he can play... BUT when it loads up the network crashes and he has to reinstall the network drivers.

After the computer restarts he loaded up starcraft II, and now it crashes again. So it seems like everytime he updates the network drivers it screws up the graphics card, and everytime he updates the graphics card drivers it screws up the network card.

I've never heard of a problem like this so I'm at a loss to help.

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.
The card is Qualcomm Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WIFI Adaptor.

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.

I migrated my installation from my laptop so save reinstalling a million apps again. All went as well as can be expected.

One thing I haven't been able to sort is that I have the "airplane" icon in the notification area and my desktop doesn't actually have a wireless card. If I move the mouse over the icon I get a message "wireless communications turned off".

Is it possible to change this back to the standard network icon?

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.

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?

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?

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:

Hello, seem to be having a rather serious issue with my laptop lately. It seems to be occasionally going through a sort of crash. First it "stutters", locking up, unable to move the mouse, if audio is playing it will loop. Then it just resets itself, as if crashing. There's been no consistency on to what causes it, or how often. Playing a Youtube video, running a virus scan, trying to reinstall the network driver, or even just trying to open up the network center in control panel. Sometimes it will go ten minutes, sometimes a couple hours before resetting itself. When it comes back, I no longer have any wireless network capabilities, and the network driver is missing. The icon displays a box, rather then a wifi symbol, with a red 'x', and says "No connections available". Resetting it again seems to fix it, but some times it takes a a few tries. And sometimes it seems I lose just my wireless network capabilities, without a crash (something that happened while writing out this post). The icon stays a wifi symbol, but with a red x. No one else in my household is having any issues, and my phone connects just fine. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless driver, but that doesn't seem to work. I reset the modem, of course, but that didn't solve it. I ran a diagnostic with the Dell Support Assist, but it said it passed and detected no issue. Only solution I've found seems to be to restart it, and hope it takes a while before it ... Read more

Look for the XP drivers for the card, probably the manufacturers site. If it's that old it may not have drivers/not supported in XP.
