Yes sir.

Great I'll use that to show you what hooks into what.

Now I just want to make sure we can actually connect to a network.

Make sure your wireless is enabled.
(right click on wireless connection in Network Connections and select "Enable")

Try going to Network Connections>Right Click on the wireless>click View available Wireless Networks and then tell me what comes up.

It's weird though, when I connect the Ethernet into the Internet slot on the back of my router and to the Ethernet slot on the back of my modem, it should be working. Wireless works, but not the internet itself.

How To Setup Your Wireless Network




*You may want to print this out, or copy it down.*


First, Unplug your modem, and router and power off your computer thus cutting power to them.

Secondly, Unplug the USB cord from the modem, and unplug the other end from your computer and put that out of your siight (but remember where you put it encase you need it in the future)

Thirdly, get your Ethernet cord Posted Image plug one end of it Posted Image into the Ethernet port on the modem.

Now plug the other end of the Ethernet cord Posted Image into the router internet port in this port in the picture:

:thumbsup:Now that will set the internet the way we need it. :)





Lastly,

1)
Plug your power back in on your modem. Wait for the lights, wait at least 2-3 minutes for the connection and lighting to get stable.

2)
Plug your power back in on your router, once again it's crucial we wait for the lights.

3)
Go back to your laptop, and power it on. Now once it's booted up and running Open up Network Connections>Right Click on Available Wireless Networks, in the window that appears click refresh network list, and click on your network and now connect to it.



If this does not work:


Solution #1
Try right clicking on your Wireless Network in Network Connections and clicking Repair.

Solution #2
Write down all the lights on your modem and tell me the name of the light, and if that light is blinking,blank, or solid.

Alright we need to install your Chipset, if you ever do a reformat be sure to install it first it can cause damage.

Installed it when you first posted it xD

So yeah, thanks a lot! And if there's any other drivers, please let me know!

By the way I added you on Friends on this site. You are by far the most helpful person I have ever come across in a computer problem.

Your welcome (=

You do need your video driver.

Once you install this and restart, can you take another picture of your Device Manager? And just to be sure, are you able to hear sound from your computer?
