Realtek makes the chip for Boise and if you download the driver package from Boise and open it up it says:

 

Copyright© 2011,  RealTeK Technology Inc. All Right Reserved.
 *  
 *    Realtek RTL8192C USB 802.11B/G/N 300M Wireless NIC Release Note.
 *    
 *    Description:  

 

 

So I don't think the name is the problem.  I would remove the Boise.  Then right click on Computer and select Manage then Device Manager,  Look for Network Adapter in the right pane and click on the arrow in front to open it up.  If you see the Realtek adapter, right click on it and uninstall.  Reboot.  Download the driver package from Boise:

 

Go to http://www.mybolse.com/support.asp and click on Wireless then find your adapter from the three they show.  Click on Windows Driver.  Download it and Save it.  Right click on the file you downloaded and Extract All.  Double click on the folder you extracted.  (Probably Windows20140110) then Find the Install.bat file and right click on it and Run As Admin.  It will probably tell you when to install the Boise but if not, wait until it finishes then stick it in.  (Preferably in a different slot that it was last.) Does it install without a problem?

 

Any change? 

 

If it still doesn't work then go back into Device Manager and right click on the Realtek wireless adapter and select Properties.  Does it say:

 

This device is working properly?

 

If so and you are still having problems then follow the 1st 4 steps on http://technology.pi...Combined_01.pdf

 

Steps 5 and up depend on your encryption standard so don't blindly follow them.

 

 

 

Tomorrow is my last day before a month long trip so I may have to give you back to Trevorever

RKinner,

 

First of all. I want to thank you very much for your help and I hope you have a good fun trip. :D I welcome Trevorever back with further assistance, and hopefully that there is some.

 

With that being said. I have downloaded the installer package, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled my wireless adapter and rebooted. Afterwards, everything installed fine with no problems, but there is still no wireless connection. On Device Manger for Realtek wireless adapter, it does say The Device is Working Properly. Weird though that there is no connection. I followed the steps of 1-4 from the link you had provided to me, and that did not help either. Step 5 from the link, that has to do with the encryption standard, I did not follow. But I will follow if I have to and with some help.

 

Well, I don't know what is going on. Seems like anything I try to resolve this issue, I keep end up getting nowhere fast.

 

 

Once again RKinner, I appreciate your help. Take care on your trip. :spoton:

You might try assigning an IP address manually.  I would use something like 

 

192.168.1.100

   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

 

Default Gateway 192.168.1.1

DNS should be the same.

 

http://www.howtogeek...a-or-windows-7/

 

Once you have done that see if you can 

ping 192.168.1.1

Leave it connected for a while and see what

 

arp -av

 

says.  Mine says:

 

 
Interface: 127.0.0.1 --- 0x1
  Internet Address      Physical Address      Type
  239.255.255.250                             static
 
Interface: 192.168.11.44 --- 0xb
  Internet Address      Physical Address      Type
  192.168.11.1          00-18-3a-12-88-50     dynamic

Got to get up early to catch the ferry.  We will be traveling for the next two days.  
 
Near as I can tell it's not a malware problem.

To whom it may concern....

 

I was told by RKinner, here in the Malware forums that from what he can see I do not have a malware problem with my wireless adapter not being able to connect. To me I'm glad to hear that there's no virus at play. Above I was left with these instructions, and to which I followed. However I don't know if I put/typed in the right subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and dns, for my IP address correctly. The IP address I have put in did not get my wireless connection going. Then again, I don't know if what I did what I was supposed to do correctly. My Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) was blank before and was set on Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically and even when the wireless connection was working at the time, in the past before this issue had occurred.

 

Either way, maybe, having an correct IP address, would help and maybe solve my wireless connection problem. I'm thinking that may be a long shot, but I'm willing to see if that helps in anyway possible.

 

With the fact of restoring my computer becoming more and more of a reality and to which I hope I can hold out a little more longer, I do hope to hear from anyone with any thoughts, ideas, that they may have for me. Take care. :D

If you can run from an elevated command prompt; while connected to the wireless

ipconfig /all > \junk.txt
arp -av >> \junk.txt

Then connect to the wired and do

Notepad \junk.txt

And copy and paste it to a reply I can see if you did it right.

RKinner,

 

I have typed in the following commands on the Command Prompt and for ipconfig /all > \junk.txt and
arp -av >> \junk.txt, I got the message saying access is denied. And for Notepad \junk.txt, I got the message saying Cannot Find The C:\junk.txt file. Do you want to create a new file?

Elevated command prompt means you can't just click on Command Prompt to open it you have to right click and Run as Admin.

RKinner,

 

Ok, I have right clicked and run as administrator, and nothing seems to happen for ipconfig /all > \junk.txt and
arp -av >> \junk.txt. Only a black small window comes and goes fast.  For Notepad \junk.txt there is nothing on the notepad for me to copy and paste.

 

On a side note....I like to mention the other night, my brothers blu ray player was not being able to get access to the internet wirelessly, but that was resolved with putting in the password for the network where in. I can't even do that with my computer. Just thought I'd mention it for what it's worth.

Start, All Programs, Accessories then right click and Run as Admin.

 

That should give you a black window that does not go away.

 

Now type with an Enter after each line:

ipconfig  /all  > \junk.txt

notepad  /junk.txt

No sign of the wireless. Does it show up under network adapters in device manager? (Right click on Computer and select Manage then Device Manager)

RKinner,

 

Yes. On Device Manager, Wireless shows up as Realtek RTL8192CU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter and, Realtek RTL8190 802.11n Wireless LAN (Mini-)PCI NIC. Of course though even though they show up on Device Manager, there is no wireless connection or maybe it's disabled......

Realtek RTL8190 802.11n Wireless LAN (Mini-)PCI NIC.  This one is the built-in wireless.  Make sure if this is a laptop that the wireless on/off switch is in the correct position.  I think I would go in to device manager and right click on this one and disable it so that it does not try to use it.

 

Open an exhanced  Command prompt as before and try:

netsh  wlan  show  interfaces  >  \junk.txt
netsh  wlan  show  networks  >>  \junk.txt
netsh  interface  ip  show  config  >>  \junk.txt
notepad  \junk.txt

RKinner,

 

Thought you'd like to know that my computer is a desktop. :D  And the Realtek RTL8190 802.11n Wireless LAN (Mini-)PCI NIC is now disabled from Device Manager. As for the Command Prompts you provided above. Here is the information from the notepad \junk.txt.......

If it's not a laptop is there a separate card in the thing for the wireless?  can you  shut the PC down  & remove the card?
