Dell :: Where Is My Wireless Adapter

Aug 24, 2009

I've got Dell Latitude C 640. I had to reinstall the operating system from recovery disks. All was smooth.

Now, when I'm trying to install a driver for the wireless adapter it asks me to remove the adapter first. I can't find it to remove it.

Dell :: Replacing The Wireless Adapter

Sep 29, 2008

I have a M1530, with the Dell 1505 Wireless N card installed.

To say the least, it is probably the worst card I have ever seen, getting no more than 6Mb/s on internal transfers (basically wireless G speeds) even though connecting at 130Mb/s.

I have a Dlink Extreme N DIR-655 router and it is pretty good, so I know it isn't that.

Looking at PCMIA cards on the internet, I suddenly realized that there is no expansion port on this system (or I am just stupid and can't see it), so I have to go with an internal card.

Is there anything I should be looking for when getting the new card? Are they easy to install?

Dell :: Usb Wireless Adapter Not Recognized...

Sep 29, 2009

I have this "problem" (is not actually a problem but I would like to know what the problem is) I have a usb wireless adapter since my laptop didn't come with a wireless card built in.

Its working fine but there is something that bothers me, I have 3 usb ports and one of them doesn't recognize my usb wireless adapter!

I don't have problems with the other two, I just plug it in and the system connects to the internet. Its just one usb port that does not recognize it.

Dell :: Changing From G Wireless Adapter To N

Jun 5, 2009

has a Dell Studio 15 (like mine) that came with a wireless G adapter but she wants to get an N router and wants to try a N wireless adapter also.

The Dell 1510 seems to be the cheapest but there are several listed, is this what she needs and are they the same?



Will it be a matter of removing a screw that holds down the card, disconnecting 2 small wires, reconnecting them and then installing software from a disc?

Dell :: Upgrading Wireless Adapter In XPS1330

Jan 20, 2010

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.

Dell XPS 17 :: L701X Wireless Adapter Disappearing From Device Manager

Apr 2, 2013

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.

Mar 23, 2013

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.

HP/Compaq :: F572US- Wireless Adapter Keeps Disappearing

Mar 31, 2010

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.

HP Dv6z-6100 Networking :: Wireless LAN Adapter Is Disabled?

Oct 2, 2014

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?
Information on my notebook:
Product Name: HP Pavilion dv6z-6100 CTO Quad Edition Entertainment Notebook
Product Number: LK183AV
OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
System Type: x64

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Wireless Adapter Not Working On Y510p

Jul 30, 2014

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'.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510p - Wireless Adapter Not Found

May 10, 2014

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.

Aspire E1 522 :: Windows 8 - Wireless Adapter Intermittently Not Recognized

Dec 23, 2014

There is a recurring problem where the computer ceases to recognize the existence of the wireless adapter. It doesn't matter if the computer is running 8, or 8.1, nor if the computer is fully Updated. This seems to be a hardware problem or some sort of electrical short, not a driver problem. I have done a bit of research over the last four months or so (when the problem first started happening), and the problem I am experiencing is most likely caused by either a faulty card, or a card that is loose from its socket on the motherboard, and not by a driver/hardware discrepancy.The strange part is the intermittent nature of the computer's recognition of the device. Stranger still is that despite what appears to be a hardware problem, I have usually been able to fix it, either by:
Uninstalling then reinstalling the device's drivers,Restoring the computer to a previous point,Reformatting the computer using the built in Windows 8 feature, and/or Removing certain Windows Updates in reverse chronological order (until the integrated WiFi device is recognized).
Last night, the problem happened again. It was maybe the 4th or 5th time overall, and the 2nd time I was forced to "hard reformat" in an attempt to fix the problem. Until just a few minutes ago, when I partially deconstructed then reconstructed the device, the "hard reformat" method didn't fix the WiFi. After the "hard reformat" didn't work, Upon turning the computer back on, it recognized the wireless adapter, I connected to the network successfully, and here I am now, documenting what happened.
I essentially did nothing significant to the device, and now the wireless adapter is recognized. Why?
All that being said, I believe I have narrowed down the cause of the problem, at least in my case. I believe there is some sort of electrical short issue. The short is caused by one (or perhaps both) of the following:
Assuming the physical location of the wireless adapter is next to the location of the port for the AC adapter, I think the AC adapter, when moved or jiggled by a hand, somehow negatively interferes with the wireless adapter, causing it to fail.Shutting the lid of the computer, perhaps when combined with the above, and/or under other conditions (something having to do with power settings?, something having to do with the state of the network when the lid is shut?), causes the network adapter to fail.Something very similar used to happen on an old Dell notebook I had, as well as on a CR-48, towards the end of their lives. That is, in order for the internet to work, I had to have the AC adapter at certain angle when it was plugged into the computer. Otherwise the wireless connection would drop. It seems like there's a connection there (pun intended), but perhaps not?
