Desktop not recognising wireless card or dongle
Posted on 2014-04-25
Desktop pc wireless dongle stopped connecting to internet.
Replaced dongle and reinstalled drivers, WiFi utility says that it is working fine but wont connect to internet. Adaptor wont connect( (i have input wifi keycode) Checked device manager says all fine.
Installed wi-fi pci card (tp link twin Ariel) and software, same problem. Checked signal on mobile wi-fi ok.
Device manager says installed ok, o/s is win 7 and card is for win 7. Wlan started in devices.
Connect by cable internet works ok,
Problem seems to lie in the software utility not being installed correctly, tried reinstalling with anti virus off, still same problem.
Removed all wi-fi pci card drivers from device manager, and switched pc off and on, to force windows to look for new card, installed drivers and utility from manufacture disc provided for win 7, still wont connect. All drivers installed correctly according to device manager.
Checked hard drive, cpu and motherboard all appear ok (used diagnostic software).
Checked internet options all boxes ticked.
Tried ipconfig, but nothing shows (put this down to adaptor not connected).
Not sure what to do next?
