Asus Usb-n13 Network Adapter Problem


I'm running windows 7 32bit with a msi ms-7698 motherboard. I'm trying to install the drivers for an asus usb-n13 network adapter. I have no cd drive so i've downloaded the drivers from the asus site. When i run the setup file for the driver it says it can only be ran on windows 7 (which is what i'm using). I've also tried using device manager to manually select the driver and install but that doesn't work either. I've also installed the "asus wlan control center" thinking there would be an option to install drivers through that. But when i try to run it it says that it will run once the network adapter is plugged in, which it is. Under "devices and printers" it shows my adapter as "unspecified" so my pc is recognizing that it is plugged in.

Problems With Usb Wireless Network Adapter

Have purchased new hp desktop with windows 7 home premium. Have tried using d-link dwa-160 (reva) usb wireless adapter. Used latest updated software from d-link site (may be for vista 64 os as win 7 not listed). Wireless adapter works for short time and then loses connection. Have used win 7 wizard to fix problem. Indicates that driver for usb may not correct driver. Still disconnects throughout the day. Have un-installed software.

Deleted driver for dwa-160. Re-started computer with clean start. Plug usb adapter in and windows 7 does not even recognize that a usb device is connected. Have tried to "add a device" and win 7 still does not recognize that anything is connected to usb. Hp amd win 7 x64. Any help?

Updates Disable Usb Network Adapter

I recently installed windows 7 pro x64, at first everything worked fine however after running windows update my network adapter stopped functioning.network connections in the control panel no longer lists my adapter but the device manager tells me that everything is working properly. The icon by the clock detects neither any wi-fi networks or even the adapter. I have tried this with two different ones a rosewill and a zonet with the same results. Does anyone know if this is a specific update problem or is it a device driver problem?

Linksys Wireless-g Usb Network Adapter Update Fails

I recently installed windows 7 on my pc that was previously running xp. Ever since installation i've had issues with my wireless adapter. Whenever my pc is shutdown, restarted, or left to sleep for extended periods the network monitor in the tray displays that there are no connections available (as if the system doesn't recognize the adapter).

I have been uninstalling/reinstalling the driver from the disk every time this happens. Also, the update mentioned in the title fails to install. Would this update fix my problem and how do i fix it?

Network Adapter Does Not Appear In Network Connections

I am able to connect to the internet and to other computers in the workgroup, but i am not able to see the lan connection for my network adapter. It is an nvidia nforce gigabit ethernet adapter.

Network Adapter Issues

I have windows 7 x86, and i upgraded from vista about a year ago. Now, recently i've been having issues with my wireless adapter. It's a netgear wpn111 v2. The connection notification in the corner displays a disconnected icon. Any attempts to reinstall the driver software fail, telling that the drivers can't be loaded, or that the latest drivers are already installed (which they aren't, i know). Any attempts to update the driver will disable it, saying that the drivers aren't there or there was an error.

In addition to this, i can not even get into my advanced network adapter settings to edit any of them, and it seems that anything that calls for the network adapter settings will not open. No error, or anything. I just click it and nothing happens. Now i'm online with this computer, but any fiddling with the netgear settings will force me to a state where i have to system restore if i want to get online again. So far the only thing i haven't tried are a full windows 7 reinstall. I really do not want to do that. So can anyone help me out here? I'm getting kind of desperate, and these errors are preventing me from using any vpn services.

Network Adapter Alias

How can i create the equivalent of a linux ethernet alias in windows 7?I have a single physical adapter which needs to be bound to two different subnets with different default routes. 172. 16. 2. 10 gw 172. 16. 2. 1 metric 100172. 16. 15. 10 gw 172. 16. 15. 1 metric 200i have some software that can specifically use one adapter or another so most applications can use the lower metric gateway while letting that software use the specific interface with the higher metric. I cannot figure out how to alias a physical adapter in windows, how can i do that?

Compatible Network Adapter

Last week i went out and bought a hp pavilion desktop model # p6203w with windows 7. We have one computer wired to our dsl and a linksys wireless g broadband router model # wrt54g. My problem is the belkin wireless adapter i bought didn't work. Call hp customer service and they told me that the belkin adapter wasn't compatible with windows 7. I took the belkin back to the store and looked at the other adapters. None of them are compatible with windows 7.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop that works fine with the router so i don't want to replace the router. What i need to know is what brand and model # adapter i need to buy to get my desktop up and running? I have checked the device manager and it offers dial up and broadband but not wireless.

Wireless Network Adapter Gone Missing

After resuming from a sleep, the network adapter disappeared. This happened before and they replaced the computer, after trying a system restore and then full recovery. Apparently, it's not the computer. The wireless adapter is missing from device manager, much less the network and connections area. In troubleshoot, the computer simply says a network cable needs to be plugged in. There is no wireless choice under network connections. There is no wireless adapter tab upon right click of network adapter in device manager.

The realtek wlan driver does appear in the programs & features list. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and also found/installed a patch for the driver. This did not work. I also started/automated the autoconfig scripts for wireless. Nothing works.

Wireless Network Adapter Compatibility

As stated matter above, i would to have a professional guidance on what should i do. First of all, i currently using the windows 7 which just installed on my acer aspire 4736z (laptop) about a month ago. My wireless connection to the belkin router previously work just fine until recently i decided to change to the new d-link dsl-2640t wireless router. The troubleshooting window kept on bugging me to reset the router. I followed all the instructions, but to no avail nothing changed.

I tried to download some of the wireless network drivers to replace the current wireless network adapter (atheros ar5b93 wireless network) but again nothing changed. Surprisingly, i did succeed to access the internet using the cat 5e ethernet cable which connected point-to-point from the wireless router to the laptop. So here, i suspected there is something wrong with the wireless network adapter.

All the downloaded folders failed to take effect on the current settings. The recommended solution by windows is either to reset network adapter or access point. Is it have anything to do with the compatibility of the wireless network adapter with the dsl-2640t wireless router or any other issues?

Network Issue With Intel 82567lm Adapter

We have several dell latitude e4200/4300 laptops that run windows 7 and have the intel 82567lm nic installed. We have a major issue with them when attached to our domain, windows 2003 active directory, in that they loose network connectivity in certain circumstances. When they are not members of the domain this does not happen. We receive no error messages, the cards just stop working. I'm not sure if this is the nic driver failing or a windows component.

Network Adapter Installed In Vista But Not In Win7

I have a new gateway desktop with windows 7 that i am trying to connect to my in-home wireless network. I bought a linksys wireless g usb adapter. When i run through the installation procedure, i am told that the computer recognizes the adapter but one step later i get an error 211 saying that the adapter was not installed properly. I removed the adapter, inserted it in a different usb port and reran the installation setup. Same result.

I spent about an hour last night with a linksys techie on a live chat. She suggested i try installing the adapter on my desktop that runs vista. It installed perfectly. The problem thus would seem to be with windows 7. Any thoughts?

Wireless And Lan Network Adapter Icon Disappeared

I have an acer aspire 8920g running windows 7 ultimate having updated frm windows vista 32-bit. My problem is that for some reason my network adapters, both wireless and the lan ports don't show up in the area they used to, and also both of the drivers i had in my network adapter section in the device manger had a yellow question mark over them which means the device is not working properly because windows cant load the required driver.

This meant i couldn't load the internet, through using another pc i managed to reinstall and update one of my devices/drivers (intel wireless wifi link 4695agn) but my other one (atheros ar8121/ar8113/ar8114 pci-e ethernet controller) hasn't stopped having this error (code 31 error) even though ive downloaded the latest drivers from the atheros website which means i still cannot use my lan ports. Does anyone have any idea what may have happened?

Computer Will Not Connect To The Internet Unless I Disable And Then Re-enable The Network Adapter

Since installing windows 7 my computer will not connect to the internet unless i disable and then re-enable the network adapter.

Usb Adapter Not Being Detected

Okay, here's what i'm having a problem with. I purchased a mayflash n64 duel port adapter, which is supposed to be "plug and play". It says compatible with windows 98, me, xp, and vista. But my pc isn't even acknowledging that i've plugged something in! Is there something i'm missing here, or am i just out of luck because i bought into windows 7?(I've never had trouble using older programs/devices before. And i was really excited about using the n64 controller with the n64 games. )I searched for drivers, but since it's "plug and play" i couldn't find any.

Problems With Usb Wireless Adapter

Having problems with usb wireless adapter. Seems to go to sleep regularly and not wake up. When running xp, this would happen occasionally. All i would do to fix it was unplug and plug the usb adapter and it would start back up fine.

With windows 7, it happens regularly and when i unplug and plug it will not restart. Only thing that works is to restart? Is there a way to restart the wireless adapter without restarting. Or better, keep it from dying or restart automatically.

Iv'e noticed an inordinate number of people having endless problems with wireless networking and windows 7. Now its my turn. Linksys wag120n router wpa2billion bipac 3011n usb adapter connected to winxp sp3. Worked instantly. Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit sitting next to it with the same usb adapter (listed as realtek rtl8191su) cannot see the router or any of the available wireless networks within range. I tried different drivers and disabled kaspersky av all to no avail. My question is this:
Can anyone out there suggest a usb wireless-n adapter that they know works with linksys wag120n on windows 7 64-bit? (Desktop)

Belkin Usb Wireless Adapter With 64-bit

I have recently bought a belkin wireless g usb adapter (f5d7050) and am unable to connect to any connections on my desktop.

I am using the adapter on my desktop, which is running windows 7 professional 64bit. I have been searching online for solutions, and saw tons of compatibility problems with this device, yet i have gotten the drivers working (or so it seems) even though i can not connect to any networks.

I have tried using the drivers that the device came with in multiple compatibility modes, in addition to the newest drivers on belkin's website in multiple compatibility modes.

The driver seems to be working, my device is recognized, and i can click on it and see all the wireless networks within range. My problem is that it will not connect to any of these networks, whether it is an open network, or a wpa2 network. I know my router works, since i am using the internet on my laptop. I also have checked the router for any funky settings that would cause my problems. There is no mac filtering, or anything else that would cause the device to not connect.

I am wondering what i need to do in order to connect to the networks. It doesn't even seem like windows 7 is trying when i type in the password, or select an open network. I instantly get the "can't connect to "

Considering belkin has been no help, i have come here as my last resort. I really need internet on my desktop. Please let me know if there is a solution to this problem.

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Belkin Usb Adapter

I performed a registry cleanup on my computer last monday using norton 360 with mixed results. The major problem i'm having is that i can't seem to connect to my belkin wireless usb adapter anymore.
I did a system restore, and an uninstall/re-install of the latest belkin driver software. The adapter does manage to connect on occasion, but returns to its inoperable state if i put the computer to sleep or try to do a reboot.

If i try a clean install, w7 typically tries to connect to the adapter but then it either says that the device isn't recognized or says there is no device at all. When i run a diagnostic, w7 recognizes the problem but it figures that i'm trying to connect through my ethernet cable and not via usb. I can't seem to make it point to the usb connection. Am i missing anything? Is there a manual fix?

Belkin F5d8053 N Usb Wireless Adapter Cannot Connect

It would seem that plenty of people on the forums have had similar problems to mine but no real solutions are forthcoming, so i thought i may as well put my problem up in case the specifics make it easily solvable. Bear with me cos i've tried a lot of things and i don't want to leave anything out incase it's useful. Ok, i got a new laptop recently and wanted to transfer my music collection from my desktop to the laptop.

At this time both machines were connecting to the network properly, i was using a belkin usb g wireless adapter and windows 7 ultimate x64 in the desktop, and the inbuilt wireless with windows 7 home premium x64 on the laptop. I tried to do this through homegroups and for some reason the laptop couldn't join or even see the homegroup, so i ended up connecting the hard drive from the laptop directly to the desktop via sata cable. When i put the hard drives back the way they were originally after the transfer was complete, the wireless on my desktop had stopped working.

In the adapter settings panel, the wireless connection was set to disabled and whenever i tried to enable it, a box came up saying "enabling" followed by "enabled" but the main icon in the panel would still say disabled and the network wizard would say "not connected". To eliminate hardware malfunction as a cause, i tried disabling the integrated wireless on the laptop and using the usb adapter from the desktop to connect to the internet. This worked better than it ever had in the desktop. I tried updating the drivers in various compatibility modes and removing every trace of belkin software from the computer to start again, but to no avail. In the end i bought a new usb adapter, the 802. 11n adapter in the subject line (i needed an upgrade anyway as the router is two floors below the computer).

This worked better in the desktop, allowing the wireless connection to enable, but still not seeing any wireless networks in the area (of which there are around 6). After much uninstalling, reinstalling, updating, rolling back, shouting and pleading, the adapter finally started picking up the wireless networks for the area, including mine. Unfortunately that is all it would do - it refused to connect. All the while, the laptop has been able to make a strong connection with the router. I have tried going into the routers firmware from the desktop but inexplicably while the networking wizard can see the wireless network, the computer cannot get through to the router.

A wired connection works, however having the router and computer in the same room permanently is impossible due to the position of the cable entry point in my house. Removing the router security does not work. Resetting the router and rebuilding the network connection does not work. Threats do not work. I was hoping that somebody would have a suggestion as to why this is happening and what can be done.
