Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

We have an Advent 7088 laptop and want to connect it to wireless router. We thought a wireless facility was already installed in the 7088 but when we try the wireless on/off button nothing happens. What do we need to do to get the wireless on. Do we need a separate card?

Wireless card stops working after upgrading to Windows Vista
\012After upgrading to Windows Vista everything works fine apart the\012Marvell Wireless card, when you press the button nothing happens.
\012There seems to be three different ways of solving this problem\012(there is a fourth - don't install Vista) and I've listed them below,\012hopefully at least one should work for you.
\012The first solution is to press the wireless button while Windows\012Vista is loading, you have to be quick though as it only works if you\012press the button between the loading scrolling lines logo (after the\012post screen) and before the windows logo appears.
\012The second is to go into Device Manager, select the Marvell Wireless\012card and then go to Properties>Advanced>Default Adhoc Mode. Here\012change the Default Adhoc mode to B or G. When you confirm the change\012the wireless connection should become active, if it doesn't then press\012the wireless button and try changing the setting again.
\012The third method is to create a desktop shortcut to the wireless\012adapter. Go to [Network and Sharing Centre]>[Manage Network\012Connections] and then right click the wirless connection and choose\012Create Shortcut. You can then switch on the wireless at any time, just\012point at the shortcut then right click and chose Disable. Once its\012disabled right click on the shortcut again and choose Enable. It should\012then connect within 20-30 seconds.
