E-Machines M5414 stopped detecting wireless networks

\015 My E-Machines model M5414 notebook that I bought new in 2005 stopped detecting my wirteless network yesterday. I can plug it into my router and it is fine but the WIFI no longer works. Whem I quiry the 802.11G hardware, it says it is running fone. Is this a replaceble part or part of the motherboard.\015\012Thanks\015\012Doug C.\015

Answers :

I had the same issue with the M5414 wifi integrated wifi adapter.
\015\012Very frustrating.
\015\012My brother is an IT guy and he was able to resolve it minutes. Here is how he did it:
\015\0121.turn the computer off
\015\0122.turn it back on and while it is booting back up hit delete on your keyboard to get to the boot screen and bios screen
\015\0123.go to the advanced tab by using your keyboard arrows
\015\0124. go down to where it says RF power and hit enter on your keyboard
\015\0125. use the arrows to choose on and hit enter, since you noticed it was set to off when you when in there (how did that happen right?)
\015\0126. hit F10 to save the settings change and hit enter for ok and you are done
\015\012
\015\012He said that this starts happening because the battery on the motherboard is going to need to be replaced soon. You may have to do this every couple of days until you replace the motherboard battery.
Hi,
Silly question but is the wirless turned on? There's probally a button above the keys to turn on or off or a slide switch on the side somewhere.

Also have you tried updating the drivers for the wireless card?, try using Windows Updates first and download it.

Or try removing the device from Device manager and then letting it re-detect and re-install the device. You may want to make sure you have a copy of the drivers before doing this.

Can it detect any other wireless networks, it could be that your wireless router has problems?

Rgds,
Geoff

Our fire station has a cat5e cable supplying internet access to our internal network from a switch in city hall. It connects a baystack 350 to their switch. If this cable is left plugged in during the evening or the weekend, something happens to cause the baystack to stop working. All of the lights are on appropriately, but there is no connectivity even in our own network. I am not sure how the cable from city hall is run. Could this cable be picking up some noise causing the problem?


Very likely an IP problem. The server in City Hall is most likely doing the DHCP assignments for all connected machines, and if there is a LAN server running DHCP also in the firehall, there will be a conflict, which may not manifest itself until the ... PC Desktops
