I have a wireless internt connection and I had lost my connection so I did a session of evil and he told me that the problem was that I need to reset my wireless adapter. I don't know where to go in my computer to reset the wireless adapter can someone please instruct me.



  • What version of Windows you are using?

I suggest you follow the steps mentioned below:

Reset the network adapter

a. open network connections by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, click network and Internet, clicking network and sharing Center and then clicking on manage network connections.

b. right-click on the network adapter icon and then click disable.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

c. right-click the adapter icon again and then click Activate.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

The adapter is now reset. Try to reconnect to the network, or run Network Diagnostics to verify that your network card works now correctly.

Open Network Diagnostics by right-clicking the network icon in the notification area, then click on diagnose and repair.

  • Settings need to connect a second desktop computer using a NetGear wireless adapter.

    Original title: wireless settings

    I need the settings to connect a second desktop computer using a NetGear wireless adapter.

    The Belkin router work a lot using my Tablet and streaming movies but I can't understand

    the settings on the second PC.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    "Settings", you need are the SSID (network name) and the encryption key (password).

    Unless you have configured the router to 'hide' the SSID (generally a bad idea), you will see in the list of available wireless networks.  Then, the only thing you need is the encryption key.

    If you do not write your encryption key, you can find it by logging into your router configuration utility.

    If you have a computer running Windows can now connect to the router, open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK) and type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and press ENTER.  Take note of the 'Default gateway' address.  It is the IP address of the router.

    The default IP for Belkin routers is

    Once logged in, click on "Security" under "wireless" in the menu.  At this point, you should see a page that shows your password.  Write it down and exit the router configuration utility without making any changes.

  • error c00000021A on my windows XP Professional after you install spyware and computer back reset

    I reinstalled windows XP Professional ON MY DELL gx270s, I formatted the hard disk, installed the drivers from dell four with him, but after I installed my avast spyware on it and the computer comes back from.  I get the code on a blue screen "COOOO21A ERROR". Could you help me with this

    I would say that Avast has quarantined (effectively deleted) some system files important XP (he is known for this).

    I have a few dozen c000021a errors in my notes, you must provide the exact error message that you see.  Note that these are zeros, not OHS.  I have a curious why would you only provide part of the message see you and wait to help us?

    If yous system isn't bootm, the response from the Microsoft support engineer doesn't help.  Even if your system does not start, it would be still useless.  It is however the first article of KB Microsoft coming in a Bing search engine, but that's not good.  Don't waste your time on these responses.

    Here is an example, and we need something like that on your part:

    STOP: c000021a {fatal system error}
    The Windows logon process ended unexpectedly with the status of 0xc0000034 (0 x 0000000 0000000 x 0).
    The system has been shut down.

    Then, you will need to answer these questions to the best you can:

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Your system have IDE or SATA disks?

    The afflicted system has a working CD/DVD (internal or external) drive?

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

  • P3K49EA: How do you know which wireless adapter you have?


    I was looking at the Wi - Fi drivers for this specific unit but for many other portable, I can find the drivers for the network for a series of adapters Wi - Fi, like Intel, Realtek, and Qualcomm.

    Many times, a way to solve the problem of falling of the internet is now by installing the last Intel Wi - Fi and Bluetooth card, but there are other drivers for the cards made by other manufacturers, how do I know for sure that my device has a processor intel Wi Fi adapter?

    I don't know that, in some cases, you can check back and see exactly which wireless adapter you have, but who are these dependent region?

    For example. each laptop, Pavilion, envy and water courses that are sold to the United Kingdom, all have an Intel wireless adapter? and if it was a laptop computer with an AMD processor and chipset?

    Really looking forward to hearing from you guys.

    Thank you


    I suspect that you have installed the Realtek wired ethernet driver and Intel wifi driver. Only the driver for the hardware you have installed. In fact, the tag on the laptop won't tell you much. If you look to the top of the support page for your specific model, it will show the drivers for all the optional features available in this series of models. And Yes, the wireless cards can be region-specific. The regulation on radio communication varies around the world. That's why several wireless drivers are listed, some of which you can't use. Unless you are having problems just use office supplies Windows driver. If there is a problem, it may be necessary to know your specific hardware so that you can find a more specific driver from the manufacturer's Web site, or you can search the Internet for other people having a problem with this specific device and use other suggest drivers. I hope that this is a logic.

  • This line where you can see your bookmarks and stuff are gone... ! How can I get that back?

  • "You must restart your computer.."

    One of my friends showed me his MacBook.

    It is not used for a while and nothing appears on the screen when he says.

    As the teeltale of his power cable lamp showed yet the green light, we bought a new power supply.

    The lamp is now fully green, but we received the message

    "You must restart your computer...". "again and again.

    We need advice please

    You did not provide enough details to make a proposal about how to solve your problem. It may be that you feel panic attacks.

    Not only is the power supply to the 12 '' MacBook doesn't have a green LED on the power supply cord, so I expect you might have either a 2006-2010 MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. This forum area is for the 12 "retina MacBook early 2015 or early 2016.

  • Not so much a question as letting you know that when I downloaded mozilla firefox I'm done with download trogen. Would you go through your code to solve?

    I downloaded mozilla firefox because I always said that it is safer to surf the net with her than IE and have used it for years. So I downloaded it on a computer in order to prevent virus popup problems I had. After Malware said they were all off the coast, I downloaded Mozilla... and again ran Malware only to find representatives of trogen trogen downloads and spyware infected files. I think that maybe someone messed with your codes. I have since sunk all of this, but thought you should be informed that there might be a hidden problem. Please check it out. Thank you

    If you wish to make such a request, please give more details as what antivirus or scanners, you used, what they find so-called and where exactly.

    Where did you downloaded Firefox from stood at www.mozilla.org or www.mozilla.org/firefox/all

    If you have indeed downloaded Mozilla (and not a random download site) then it is pretty much guaranteed to false positives.

    The installation program of small heel online for Firefox on Windows (served on mozilla.org) exists since Firefox 18.0 and still some antivirus clients gives still false positives about it although if customers have no problem with the complete configuration of www.mozilla.org/firefox/all

    39.0 Firefox has been out since July 2 so much time to find all these issues in all versions of Firefox 39.0 for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.

    If it was true that Firefox 39.0 for Windows was a Trojan horse, then it would be a very hot topic here, the independent forums.mozillazine.org and tech autour sites even if Mozilla removed affected built quickly.

    I have seen people claiming viruses, Trojans or malware in Firefox releases in 12 years. Not once was as true as it was false positives subsequently fixed by the update definitions antivirus or just something that was detected in the Cache that makes these things harmless while in the Cache.

    The other times it was from users who have malicious software on their system, install Firefox, then did a scan and found should it is come with the installation of Firefox.

    There was a case back in Firebird 0.6 days a local accumulation contributed has been apparently infected (Chinese?, I forgot) that Firefox 1.0 was the first version to have other official other than en-US language.
