Answers :

Are you sure you have a wire card installed? If so, then try this:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
  2. \015\012
  3. Click the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button. The network card should appear under Network Adapters.
    \015\012 Note:\015\012If the card has a exclamation mark over a yellow background, then this\015\012is an indication that the card is experiencing a problem. Go to Driver\015\012download step 5.
    \015\012
\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012 Verify that the radio is enabled.
    \015\012
    It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems.
    \015\012 Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.

    • Most\015\012wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons\015\012in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it\015\012may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
    • \015\012
    • Some\015\012systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless\015\012radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side\015\012of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless\015\012connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On\015\012position.

  2. \015\012
  3. Check for association to an Access Point.
    \015\012
    \015\012If you double-click the previously mentioned system tray icon, the\015\012configuration utility of the wireless card will appear. This utility\015\012will be able to show the status of the wireless card, showing what\015\012channel the card is using and what signal strength is being received.\015\012It may be difficult to maintain a connection if signal strength is low\015\012due to either interference or distance. For example, interference can\015\012be caused by 2.4GHz cordless phones, other Access Points in the area,\015\012and physical structures such as load bearing walls or metal partitions.
    \015\012 Note:
    \015\012The utility can be used to configure the wireless card settings, but if\015\012using Windows XP Zero Configuration or Access Connections, you will\015\012need to use those programs to actually configure the wireless card as\015\012they will overwrite the setting of the utility.
