Hi pillowgod,

1. When did you start to question?

2. you remember to make changes to the computer before this problem?

You can check the following link and try to run the manual Intel WiFi diagnostic tool to check the functionality of your WiFi adapter.

You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the Intel wireless card and check.

a. Click Start and type in Device Manager in the start search and press ENTER.

b. expand the network adapters in the Device Manager

c. right-click on the device, and then click Properties

d. click on the driver tab and click on uninstall the drivers and click OK.

e. restart the computer and check.

You can also see the Intel Web site and try to download the latest version of the card wifi drivers.

  • Pavilion network adapter are not not in Device Manager

    My Pavilion P6330f lost the internal network adapter (no internet connection, adapter are not not in Device Manager).  Is it possible to re-restore/refresh it?  I tried to do a scan to refresh hardware, but it doesn't show any internal network adapter.

    I was able to get back on the network by installing a wireless network adapter via the disk support provided with the wireless USB device and using Device Manager.

    It seems that the internal NETWORK adapter has gone (fried) and I need to install a new NETWORK adapter in one of the expansion slots.  Other options?

    Is this a common problem?


    No, it is not common, unless your home has experienced a surge\dropout of power or a bolt of lightning. What you are experiencing, this is usually the result of thet.

    Since your office worked five years ago, he certainly provided you a reliable service. You might consider looking for a PC replacement in 2015. SCP last usually about five years before replacement is required.

    Wireless, it's that a good option as no extra wire is a good thing.

    Does that mean exactly? Have you installed driver WLAN or not? Wireless network adapter correctly installed and listed in device as a card Realtek WLAN Manager?
    How do understand you?
    You have problems to install the wireless network adapter or configure the WIFI connection?

    If the wireless network adapter is installed correctly activate the card with the WLAN switch and then use the FN + F8 key combination and make sure card is set on IT.

    The adapter appears in Device Manager and it is used by the computer as disabling it kills the internet connection.
    I think that's the reason that I have a network with a red X icon. The ToolTip that appears when the mouse passes over the icon said access to the Internet.

  • Blue indicator of Win 7 circle network ALSO hang Device Manager and MSE does not

    I have a strange problem since the recent windows updates.

    Indicator of network in the bar tasks displays a blue circle for about 20 minutes after I start the computer. During this time I can't run regedit, I can't open the Device Manager, and I can't seem to activate the protection in real time to Microsoft Security databases. However all the time I have internet and network access.
    After about 20 minutes the light will come back normal (sometimes it goes through a Red Cross first), date at which the computer then runs everything normally, if I have my phone on, I get the auto run screen, Device Manager works and I can also start MSE.
    It's as if the computer is waiting for something to happen. Device problem? However, all devices appear to work normally.
    The latest updates, I made were optional for monitor HP and Microsoft mouse and a keyboard, both of which work well in the era of 'blue circle '.
    I also tried updating the adapter software.
    It is not important, but it's annoying!

    Hi Carmen,.

    The blue circle on the network icon indicates that the system is looking for a network connection.

    If it appears at the start, then start the modem and the router before you start the computer.

    Method 1:

    Using the troubleshooter from network in Windows 7

    Method 2:

    Step 1:

    Check if the problem persists in safe mode with network.

    Check out the link:

    Startup options (including safe mode)

    Step 2:

    If the issue is not still in safe mode, and then start the clean boot computer to determine if a third-party program is causing the problem. To configure your computer to clean boot see the following link.

    How to perform a clean boot for a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

    Note: See "How to reset the computer to start as usual after a clean boot troubleshooting" under more information to prepare the computer to start as usual after a repair.

    Also check the link for more information:

    Important: When running chkdsk on the drive if bad sectors are found on the disk hard when chkdsk attempts to repair this area if all available on which data can be lost.

    Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

  • Treo 800w not found in Device Manager and does not connect to ActiveSync

    I just got my Treo 800w and I have ActiveSync it once.  After that, I had a lot of trouble trying to get activesync to say that it was connected to the computer.  After doing some research on Google and help forums looking around, I discovered that the Treo should appear in my device manager when you are connected to the computer.  I went to my device manager and of course, it wasn't there.  After a lot of time trying to make it work, I found that the best thing to do is remove the battery and plug it in again.  Then the computer will find again.

    However, I also learned what was causing my problem and I don't know if it's a windows or a problem of palm, but it is a question.  If you connect a Treo 800w on a WinXP (I don't have Vista so I don't know if this problem exists) and even if you touch it connected the power button on all Windows POPs a message saying a USB device has malfunctioned and will cease to recognize the device.  I then told my wife (the main user of the Treo) to never touch the power button and even less the Treo at all while it is plugged into the computer.

    If this question has already been posted... I'm sorry that I'm not looking for it...

    If you read my entire post it says I already found the solution.  Try all the things you listed didn't work for my problem.  I write only because I believe that it is a bug/problem with palm or windows and the device.  Take the battery, put the battery back in, and reconnect the unit is the only thing that works.

    I also tried to uninstall ActiveSync, reboot, install ActiveSync and the battery... it works too, but it's much faster to just remove the battery then put it back and reconnect the device.

    To answer your other question on ActiveSync Yes, I've got 4.5.
