Hi There

OK uninstall ALL network adaptors, reboot, then install the chipset drivers from here:

Reboot

And reinstall the network drivers.

All network adapter uninstalled from device manager, the only thing in Programs and Features is NVIDIA drivers (which is the Graphics driver) and the PC Wizard.

And when you say reinstall the network drivers do you mean this http://h10025.www1.h...product=3467448 ? probably yes.

Edit

I did what you said, the device manager now looks the exact same as it was last time.

Hi There

OK you have installed the chipset and network driver and still nothing?

I'm pretty stumped as the link you posted above is the driver for your WLAN NIC and it should just be a case of enable the wifi and installing the driver.

I'm wondering, is there any way that the wifi adaptor has been disabled in the BIOS.

Can you confirm?

Regards

Hi Buddy

Well I'm stumped as it should just be a case of enabling the hardware, installing the appropriate driver and wifi software then find your network and apply the security settings and away you go.

Give me your laptop make / model.

Now here's a thought

Your original post states a tx1250ea model, whereas your last post states a tx1000 model.

Now on looking at the tx1000 driver page the WLAN drivers are different from the ones we have been trying:

Here is the WLAN driver link for the tx1000 for Vista 32 bit:

http://h10025.www1.h...product=3185028

Download and install that.
