I just reinstalled windows 7 on dell inspiron 1525 and the wireless adapter isn't picking up any connections. When i troubleshoot the error it says 'turn wireless capability on' the switch on the laptop is on but the light isnt showing up on the laptop.
I checked device manager and there is dell wireless mini-card and it says it is working properly.
My wireless adapter needs to be constantly reset. My wireless constantly goes out, at least every 10 minutes or LESS and it has to reset the adapter. It's VERY annoying! I've already updated all the drivers and even tried re-installing the adapter.Bluetooth is NOT on.
I got a second hand Dell Inspiron 1525 about 2 years ago, it was working fine till the hard drive stopped workinga few months ago. i got a new hard drive and put that in and loaded software and Vista OS.Now the wireless card won't recognize the adapter.I have tried all different ways and adapters and it still won't work.
I am trying to reinstall my Dell Inspiron N 5110 (after my wireless connection was disabled (I dont know how) and my efforts to reenable the wireless connection were useless). While I tried to install the drivers, the drivers suitable, as identified by dell software, was for ethernet and none of the wireless/bluetooth drivers where selected as suitable. When I go to the device manager I couldnt see any wireless adapters that need drivers.
I have two problems in my windows7, here is my computer description (windows7 home basic, intel core i5, model n5110)1- when i turn on/off my bluetooth or wireless adapter it used to hear a notification device sound like when you enter USB or connect mouse to your computer but now there is no sound, how can i turn on the bluetooth device sound on ?2- after i made dell factory image restore and made recovery media some times appear in my computer local disk with blue question mark and disappear, i did right click to my computer open disk management i found disk 0 basic 465.76 online health OEM partition what it is ?
I put a new hard drive in my Dell Inspiron 6000 and installed Vista. That was horrible so I reinstalled Windows XP. The Wireless was working in Vista. Now when I try to see Dell WLAN it comes up No Adapters.
The above series of processors apparently have an "Overdrive" mode at that will allow the cores to jump to 2.4ghz from their normal working clock speed of 1.8ghz. However, there seems to be no way to use it or access it. The clock speed will not move above 1.8ghz no matter how much demand I put on the system. There are no obvious (or unobvious) BIOS settings that even reference AMD Overdrive. I'd like to be able to utilize the extra power, but I can't seem to find it. I'm running Linux on this machine, though I assumed that Overdrive would have been handled at the BIOS level.
My Dell Inspiron 15 (7537) simply does not recognize the built in touchpad for a couple of days now.
I did run all the tests even the ePSA test and all passed with OK, but never the less there are not tests for the touchpad.
If I unplug the external mouse the mouse pointer dissapears, as a sign that there is no device present.(I tried to install and reinstall the synaptics drivers - Input_Driver_15K08_WN_184.108.40.206_A02 ) but no luck at all.
Furthermore, I tried to boot the system using the windows 7 and 8 installation media, as well as Linux Mint, but there is no mouse pointer unless I plug in an external mouse.
It seams to me that the hardware is faulty.
I still have 1 more month left from the standard warranty, what should I do ?
I have Dell inspiron N411Z (2009). the webcam stoped to work after skype upgrade. I found out that windows doesn't recognize the webcam. I install the driver Creative live! 2009 or 2011. But it's useless.
Hi. This is my first post and I am a self confessed novice, so I apologise if my question has been covered elsewhere (I tried a Search but couldn't see anything specific to my question).
I have a Dell XPS 1330, with a Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG adapter installed (as part of teh orginal build by Dell). The processor is an Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 2.00GHz Level 6 Revision 3853.
I have recently upgraded my home Wireless Router to a Netgear WNDR 3700, which is Draft N and Dual Band. I would now like to upgrade the adapter in my XPS1330 to take advantage of the N draft and Dual Band router.
Is this possible? If so, what new wireless card would you recommend which will be compatable with 1330.
I have a Dell XPS PP09L laptop and Windows XP needs a driver for the built-in network controller and when I do a search for it on the dell website nothing comes up. I even googled it and the links that came up led me to a no results page on Dell. What is the model of the network controller that's in this model and where I can get a driver for it?
I installed a fresh Windows XP on this Vostro, and tried to do the Install Order, with NSS and then Chipset....but once I get to wireless adapter and I go to install the drivers based on the "Service Tag" I get "The Device could not be detected, Installation Aborted".
I've had my Dell L701X for over two years now and I've had some trouble with the wireless adapter before, particularly within the last 6 months.
Recently, the wireless adapter has been disappearing from the device manager and I have had to resort to a wired connection. The adapter has been disappearing completely from the device manager and I am not sure why. I have tried reinstalling the Intel drivers for the wireless card but that hasn't solved the problem.
The components list for my laptop on the Dell website under components says I have the Intel WiFi Link 6200 (802.11a/g/n) Half Mini-card. Also if I use the wireless hardware switch it seems to be turning the Bluetooth connection on and off in the network adapters.
Currently running Windows 8 but have also had the problem while running Windows 7.
I have a Compaq Presario F572US, and for some odd reason, my wireless adapter keeps disappearing! I reinstall the wireless adapter software, then I make sure the wireless switch is turned on and after a number of reboots, the wireless adapter will show up, for me to connect to a wireless network. Once I reboot, then the adapter just completely disappears! I go to device manager and I don't even see it in the network adapter section.
I scanned for virus and spyware and my system appears to be clean.
I bought a new HP 15-p036tx and installed a windows 8. The wireless adapter was not visible in network adapters. I tried installing all network drivers, but the Broadcom drivers are giving and error and exiting.
My laptop was able to access the internet via my wireless internet connection just fine until a few days ago when it completely stopped working. I can't even view the wireless adapter in my hardware profile anymore. I'm able to connect wired but not wirelessly. I've reinstalled access points, but it didn't work. Nothing has changed in my setup to cause this to stop working.
I have been able to install most all of the missing drivers after my new OS install.......
The only problem I'm having is the wireless adapter is not recognized in device manager. There is a "network controller" that has no driver. I have installed the broadcom driver from acer site, but it won't work.
When I press the wireless button, it will toggle between wlan enabled, and wlan disabled, but I can't figure it out
One day my computer was real slow so i decided to factory restore my notebook, so i did. But ever since after that, i no longer can use my wifi for internet access. The only way i can connect to internet now is by ethernet cable. I called HP Support and they said i was missing a driver , since im sure i can just download what i need online for free on the HP site.
So, The bottom right icon shows a computer with a X on it. My F12 key is on with a blue light lid up. When i go to HP Connection Manager it says Wi-Fi (Wireless LAN) Disabled by Device Manager. When i go into Device Manager > Network Adapters, all the drivers i see are these three
"Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network)" "Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI" "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller #2"
This is all i see. Am i missing any other drivers?

I'm on a roll with my new y510p. Last night I got the unit new from Lenovo outlet, and the battery wont' charge past 33% (covered in another post) and now the wireless adapter isn't working.
I can't connect or find any wireless networks, though I could last night. And the windows networking troubleshooter can't find anything. What's more, when I go to the command line and type 'ipconfig /all' nothing appears, no network adapters at all.
I've rebooted several times and even tried the Intel wireless proset (believe that's what it's called) utility that comes with the laptop. It squawked on the hardware test-- something about not 'wireless hardware is not bound to transport driver'.
I am using ideapad y510p. My wifi worked perfectly yesterday evening. However today at morning I couldnt find any wifi networks. After some research I have discovered that there is not wifi adapter present in Network Adapters and also that there is no wifi adapter in device manager. However bluetooth works fine. I have tried reinstalling drivers (even clean install of everything that may have something with networking). But I still cant see any wifi adapter. LAN connection works just fine. I dont think this should be hardware related problem because as far as I know bluetooth and wifi adapters are both located on Intel Centrino N2230. So I think that if my wifi adapter would be broken than bluetooth wouldnt be working too. I have also tried using system restore point to last week (when everything was working perfectly) but it didnt work.
I have also downloaded latest drivers from intel website and when I run tests with theirs WiFi Software Utility (or whatever it is called) it says that there is no wifi adapter present so it fails even hardware test.
