Having problems with your Packard Bell Easy One Silver 2120 Notebook ?

My Laptop Same Thing

\015 I had an old laptop that I could change to windows vista. So I did everything works fine exepth the internet, the computer was buit for wireless internet but it didn't work, it couldn't find any networks. So I used the Ethernet cable but then it said I had limited connectivity so I went back to wirleless and tried again and tried to diagnose the problem the it said I had no network adapter. (I did reformat it by the way.) So I thought that I needed a driver so I spent ages looking for an adapter driver which I couldn't find. (I looked on device manager and I found that my network was a ULi M526X Ethernet Controller) So I went back to Ethernet again and I reseted the adapter (That was one of the diagnose options) and tried to look for the ip information again and it worked.. But i still cant connect with a wireless any help?\015\012\015\012Its a packard bell laptop by the way\015

Answers :

The problem with upgrading or downgrading to MS Vista is the lack of driver support manufacturers provide as unlike other past Operating systems Vista did not sell very well retail...it was forced upon Manufacturers who "had" to include it at a certain point in their New Computers even though in MOST cases the Computers were really designed to work on XP and this caused havoc given the need to double RAM in most cases, even now many new computers still are sold with insufficient resources.
\015\012
\015\012THat being said, many manufacturers of periferals, components like sound and video cards, Network Adapters broke with the tradition of providing UPGRADED DRIVERS for Vista as it was just not worth it for the FEW who bought Vista for their XP COmputers over the Counter. Also VIsta was quite different from win 2000-XP and didnt work on older Drivers.
\015\012
\015\012The answer to your question is most likely there are NO Vista Drivers for your Network Adapter if they are not listed your Computer Website (which is common and traditional for past New O.S.). With Desktops the solution is a bit easier especially if you have independant Modules especially: Video, Sound, Network "cards' as plug ins not integrated with the Mother Board. Notebook Motherboards are all integrated and it would be difficult to find the exact Network Adapter and change it as you can easily do with a Desktop or just ADD a Network Adapter to one of the Expansion jacks that is compatable with Vista.
\015\012
\015\012You Should first try to call the Computer Manufacturer to see if they have upgraded Drivers for your Computer. Usually the problem is with the sound, video, network and you are lucky the rest work.
\015\012
\015\012SOLUTION: If you really like using Vista and want to stick with it just buy an EXTERNAL NETWORK ADAPTER for your Notebook; they come in either USB or PCMCIA versions, making sure they are compatable with VISTA.. They come with their own Installation Disk which contains the Drivers. The other obvious solution is to just reinstall Windows XP *shrug*. There is little improvment over XP and your Computer will run much faster on the Minimum Ram Memory VISTA Requires which is 2 gb and that is in most cases BARE MINIMUM. On 2gb XP FLIES! I see no advantage in "upgrading" to VIsta, especially if it poses such serious problems as a dysfucntional Wireless Network Adapter Card.
