WiFi / Bluetooth not in Device Manager, can't install WiFi Drivers

Q: WiFi / Bluetooth not in Device Manager, can't install WiFi Drivers

Hi, I have a XPS 13 9343 (i5/QHD) purchased refurbished from 3rd party, recently installed clean W10.
The Dell tool indicates to me that I should be installing:
9343_Network_Driver_WD22T_WN32_7.35.333.0_A03.EXE
Installing I get failure log at the bottom.
Via Device Manager as mentioned the WiFi adapter under Network is not there, scanning for hardware changes does not help.
I have tried manually installing inf files but I don't get any options under "Model" when I try to install it through legacy hardware.
I'm starting to think the Wifi/Bluetooth component is either faulty or entirely missing from the vendor (I have not opened it up and wouldn't know how to diagnose this myself).
I've attached a separate wifi dongle which works as does connecting to Ethernet via a USB adapter.
Any other ideas of what it could be? Thanks.

Preferred Solution: WiFi / Bluetooth not in Device Manager, can't install WiFi Drivers

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello Every once in a while, my Microsoft bluetooth mouse stops working. Then I check the bluetooth device in the Windows device manager and it is no longer there, as if my laptop didn't have bluetooth at all. The only work-arround is to reboot. Then it works for a while, can be days or sometimes maybe even weeks before it stops working again. I found this article https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/ht506394 which seems to describe my problem. Unfortunately, the proposed solution doesn't work as my driver is already up to date (20.100.0.4) Any idea?

Wifi is not working in my envy m6. Some times wifi will work and suddenly the wifi symbol disappears. While wifi connected then ralink wireless driver was listed in the network adapter but when it goes of that driver won't be listed and the color of wifi button is always in red

A:Sometimes Wifi drivers is not listed in device manager

Hi: A couple of things you can try... 1. Make sure you have the latest W10 Ralink wireless driver installed.  Install and restart the PC. Package contains the driver installation package for the Mediatek (Ralink) wireless LAN Controller in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system. 5.0.57.0 Rev.A http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71501-72000/sp71571.exe 2. If the adapter disappears from the device manager, see if running this troubleshooting software helps. This package provides HP Sure Connect (HP Wireless Rescue Tool) for supported models running a supported operating system.

Since upgrading my HP DV6T7000-CTO from Windows 7 to Win 8 and now 8.1I have had an intermittent issue where the my wifi/bluetooth adapter is detected, until a restart, and then afterwards, is no longer detected. I have a Intel centrino wireless N 2230 which is both wifi and bluetooth. I cannot connect to wifi, nor is the bluetooth detected. Additionally, the wifi-radio button on my laptop, will not turn on (red is off, white is on). Sometimes I can temporarily fix the issue by shutting down, disconnecting the adapter from my laptop, reseating it, and then rebooting. This does not always work though.

I have tried the latest drivers from Intel as well as tried removing those and just installing whatever Windows update thinks is best. I have also updated the Bios to the latest, but to no avail. I have even replaced the adapter with a new adapter but the same model and that did not fix the issue either. For that reason, I am thinking it could be a driver issue. But, I have never experienced a driver problem where something would go from working properly to not being detected at all after a reboot. Any help figuring this out would be of great help.

A:wifi/bluetooth device not detected after reboot

I noticed your Intel driver link is for 16.5 series driver, I found this 16.7 series one, bottom download for 8.1 64-bit. It is the larger file and should include everything.

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...+2230&lang=eng

If it doesn't work, I'm at a loss myself.

I have a Sony Vaio Pro 13 SVP1321M2EB and upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 when I bought the laptop about 8 months ago. I had no problems with it until a month ago ? after an automatic upgrade of 8.1 my Bluetooth adaptor disabled itself automatically and then uninstalled itself. I reinstalled a Bluetooth adaptor and had no problem for a week or so. Then the wifi connection would come and go and I would have to troubleshoot every 5 mins to get it working again ? I thought it was due to our internet because it?s satellite and very slow. Then both the Bluetooth and the wifi adaptors disappeared. I have reinstalled Intel Proset Wireless but my computer won?t recognise it even though it appears in Control Panel and now they don?t even appear as Hidden Items on the Device Manager. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both adaptors both through the Sony support site and directly through Intel numerous times and still nothing! I tried to go back to Windows 8 using the reset/refresh through the Assist button but I am told ?the drive where Windows is installed is locked?. I don?t know if it?s a hardware problem or a software problem?I have searched and searched everywhere online and done what has been suggested but still nothing! Advice please - thank you!

I have a HP p077tx laptop and it's under warranty. Like since 2 months i am having problems with wifi like my wifi adapter used to be unavailable after i woke up my laptop from sleep. I mean the wifi wasn't just disconnected but there was no wifi adpater under device manager list. Once i selected scan for hardware changes it usually used to be back again.But on the last wednesday it just didn't and now it's gone forever. Tried restarting several times which didnt help ofcourse.  I thought of restoring system using windows system restore to a date before i had this problem. Now as the laptop booted again the wifi was back and working normally as it used to. I never put my laptop to sleep but just turned it off. Next morning the wifi was still working and i thought the problem was solved but that was only before i put my laptop to sleep again and it was gone later.  I also tried removing the drivers installed for it from programs and features but it didn't allow me to uninstall them and popped an error saying it cannot be removed .\update 65. There's no option of uninstalling the driver from device manager as i mentioned it doesn't even show up in the list.So i tried resetting the laptop and same thing which happened for a system restore happened.

Hi there

My network adapter has disappeared overnight. The computer was on all along and when I got to it in the morning the network was Limited, I turned airplane mode on/off, no networks were showing. I disabled the adapter but it would not re-enable (code 10). I then tethered using my phone but the plugged connection literally replaced the wifi adapter in my network options.

I've rebooted twice, run 2 sfc scans in between (the window shuts straight away when it finishes therefore can't read any notification if any) but no dice. I went into device manager and ticked 'show hidden items' which revealed my adapter, I tried uninstalling it to then scan for hardware but the scans just come back as if nothing was missing.

Was gonna do a DISM repair next but with the adapter uninstalled altogether I'm a bit reluctant to dig my hole any further without guidance.

This issue seems common from what I read but usually one of the manipulations I've attempted solves the problem. Would anyone have a clue?

I'm using Windows 8.1 64bit, adapter is Realtek RTL8723BE.

Happy to provide more info if need be.

Thanks

Thank you for joining HP Forums.}
I'll be glad to help you

 

As I understand the WiFi adapter is missing under device manager,

I don't know if it worked for the last user, however, could you attempt the steps mentioned on the same thread (if you haven't already) and tell me if the issue persists?

 

I would appreciate if you could reply with the steps you've done so far, the product number of your PC and if you receive any error messages while you install drivers from the HP website.

 

Awaiting your response,

Feel free to post your query for any other assistance as well,

It's been a pleasure interacting with your and I hope you have a good day ahead.

Hi, I've a HP 250 G3 with Win 8.1. I regularly use it with my home wireless. Now, I was using it for some streaming and suddendly it was dead. The wifi icon gone.Only the Ethernet available under Network Connections, no wifi.Checking the Device Manager, no more wireless under the Network Adapter.I tried to reinstall all drivers, search for New HW under the Device Manager, cleaned the config via Regedit: nothing seems to work. Just disappeared. Even scanned the PC for malware, but no threats found (even though the virus DB was not today's but just few days old). Shall I consider an HW failure only at this stage? Thanks to anybody for hints.

My daughter (a different daughter than the one whose computer issues are in a thread on the HJT forum) has a Compaq Presario F730US running Windows Vista home edition. When trying to access the internet via our wireless network today she slide the button on the front of her computer that you slide to connect to the internet. The light stayed amber instead of turning green. She clicked on HP wireless assistant and the program did not run. WLAN does not show up in her device manager.

At her apartment she has been using an external wireless modem to access networks in her neighborhood. Her internal wireless was interfering with the external connection so she shut the internal one off via the switch on the front of her computer. This has always worked ok for her in the past. Could that have affected the internal wireless?

She did the disable/enable of the network connection. This did not help. Her boyfriend looked at things and discovered that the WLAN was missing in the device manager.

She then restarted her computer and installed all Windows updates and restarted computer again. At this point she realized that she no longer had audio. When she holds the cursor over the speaker icon on the task bar it says "No audio ouput device is installed".

At this point she got on the phone with HP tech support. Their only solution was for her to pay $300 and ship it to them to see if they could figure out the problem. There are several models of Presario that have this very p... Read more

Hello.

I was asked to re install windows 8 on a laptop. It's a Dell Inspiron 15 ( 3521 ).

It installed all the drivers except the wifi + Bluetooth driver.

The laptop cannot connect to wifi straight after installing windows 8.

When I run the exe, it gets to the end of the installation it asks for the user to switch on the Bluetooth or wireless switch ( It was one if them, I forgot which one ).

I look all over the laptop and cannot find anything that resembles a switch. I looked at the FN keys and there is no shortcut for it or anything.

I looked to see if it's under settings in windows 8 but the wifi screen says " no devices ".

The laptop has a cheap build.

Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I am fairly new to all of this, and quite frankly was not really prepared to be so 'hands on' with this install of Windows 8. I am learning though, so it's alright.

I successfully installed W8 to my Gateway One AIO Touchscreen PC. This one:

Gateway - One 23" Touch-Screen All-in-One Computer - 4GB Memory - 500GB Hard Drive - ZX6971-UB20P all in one&cp=1&lp=1

Upon first boot I realized that there was no way to connect to WIFI.. I am assuming it's the lack of drivers.
How do I know which drivers I need to get ahold of?
Thanks in advance!

A:Which drivers to install for W8 wifi on PC?

You can try Gateway support for the drivers. Follow the prompts for the correct drivers.

You might try installing the drivers in Windows 7 compatibility mode.

Hi there,

First of all, excuse me for my naivety if I miss anything, this is my first post!

I've just re-installed my Vista x32 os on my laptop and do not have any of the drivers so had to manually find them on the net. I managed to find ethernet drivers on my other PC and install them on my laptop. So, basically I've had to look for all drivers (Graphics, audio etc).

The main problem I have at the moment is that I'm not sure how to install Wifi drivers. even though I can connect to the net with my RJ45 cable, I can't see any wireless networks and of course, diagnostics is telling me that I haven't any wifi hardware (because I don't have the drivers installed)

If anyone can help me find a way to do this because this is an area I've not dealt with before? how do I find out what drivers will work? is there anything else I need to do?

I'm grateful for any help!

Thanks

A:How to install Wifi drivers

Hello cidr,

Welcome to Vista Forums.

Do you have the driver? Rt. click computer/manage/device manager. See if there is anything with a yellow warning icon or if the Wifi is listed. If so right click on the device/properties and see if you can update/install driver from there.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

On Windows 8. 1, I had no issues with this speaker. It's a JBL Charge. After upgrading to 10 it worked fine until a reboot when it failed to connect (it pairs, but won't connect, and the speaker doesn't appear as an audio-out option in Sound settings).

The Bluetooth wizard in PC Settings says "Driver error" next to the speaker icon.

Poking around in device manager, I see this error:

"This device cannot start. (Code 10)
{Conflicting Address Range}
The specified address range conflicts with the address space."

The only references I find to this error online are for different (and quite old) version of windows, and seem unrelated to Bluetooth.

I can't even look at the "resources" tab for help because it appears to have vanished in Windows 10!

Is anyone else experiencing this?

It went throught the usual process of first extracting into C:/SWsetup and running the actual setup from there. But when it opens the actual setup, I see a command prompt screen for half a second. Then nothing happens, I suppose it crashes.

I can't understand what to do now, I really need WiFi. I've tried to run it in compatibility mode, I've tried to redownload the driver. I tried to manually point windows to the folder in SWSetup that was created, but it found nothing...

Hey guys, I've had an empty Device Manager for a long time and I'm only now trying to find out how to fix it.

I didn't really worry about it before because everything was working fine, even though it was empty. But recently when I've been trying to install drivers for my video card, and my new game controller there have been issues. For example the driver installation for my radeon 9600 card refuses to start up. And the driver installer for my gamepad fails to recognize that it's even plugged in (even though games recognize the controller just fine).

I'm guessing these driver problems are related to the empty device manager? The installer won't install the drivers because it doesn't think the devices are even installed or plugged in the computer.

These are the things I've tried so far. I got these solutions from google searching.
Checking Plug and Play - It's set to automatic.
mscoonfig -> services - Hide All Microsoft Services is unchecked.
Aproposfix.exe - Still empty.
Editing Permissions in the Registry - Still doesn't work.

I've ran spyware and virus tests too. They found a lot of things, but I'm still having trouble.

Any ideas guys?

My parents have a linksys USB wifi network adapter, and for some reason it just stopped working last night out of nowhere...It's running on an XP Pro system.

But I've gone into Device Manager to try and "reinstall" the driver, and using the (Automatic) setting, I'm ending up with an access denied error.

I am logged into an Administrator account too...I even went as far as booting into minimal network/Safe mode, to try and install it but still no go; same error; stating Im not an Administrator.

And for some reason it appears my "Administrator" account (only appears on the login list in Safe Mode) has been password protected....
So either, I need to figure out what is locking MY Administrator account from installing these drivers, or find a way to reset the "Administrator" account password.

It's an Acer desktop, going on 2 years old in August (though who knows how long it was on their shelf )

I've even went as far as trying to plug it into other USB ports, thinking some were bad, but my USB pen drive works fine in them so they aren't faulty ports.
