Having problems with your Gateway MX3215 Notebook ?

I have a Gateway MX3215. The wireless connection won't read my Linxsys router but if I hard wire it to my computer it works. I originally had XP and upgraded it to Vista. The wireless connection was working for awhile but when I go into my device manager under network adapters both mass storage and PCI have a exclamation mark on them. I've tried resetting the winsock and still nothing happens.


Answers :

The Gateway site only lists the XP drivers for your machine so let's see if we can do some cross referencing:

Your wireless device should be a Broadcom. This link is for downloading the generic drivers for Vista.

The mass storage controller is a card reader. Try this download from Gateway (from a slightly different notebook model) to see if it's compatible.

The PCI device is kind of an odd one but it may be your audio card. Most likely the driver is an AC97 Realtek. Download the driver here.

Post your results back here to let us know if you need more assistance.
You should check for updated drivers for the wireless NIC device. Gateway may have them available, but no guarantees. Did you do a compatibility check befiore installing Vista? It would have shown you what if any devices, and software were not compatible with vista before install. Try get as much info about the wireless device you can, and do a web search for known issues and solutions also. You may find others have had the same problem and a workaround.
