Reformatted now wireless card doesn't show in device manager
Posted on 2006-07-16
Well, the title says it all. After reformatting my wireless card doesn't show in device manager. I have installed and uninstalled the driver. It's a netgear with the router being a mr814. I'm using windows xp.
I have reformatted before and have never had this problem. I also have always been able to pick up local signals within the local area where I live. My network is open, being "wireless." I thought it might be hardware so I check to see if it was loose since I had just installed another hard drive for back up. The icon in the try is a red x over the wireless box. Also when I check the computer (the one with the card) it shows no ip address in the command prompt. What's happening here?
