HI,

Today I turned on the laptop and Intel PROSet 2915 ABG/Wireless says:

"No supported wireless adapters available in the system"

Please advise how I can get my wireless working again.

Thank You.

Connect your laptop directly to your router, and look for any kind of updated driver/software from the manufacturers website.

before downloading any drivers. goto your BIOS settings on your laptop and scroll down till you see ENABLE wireless card or something along those lines. sometimes they are disabled for no reason or an improper shutdown.

u can access BIOS by pressing a specified button when prompted on startup.

Hi All,

Problem solved.

I had uninstalled the old driver.

went to this
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_res...5&submit=Go!

Downloaded these
Intel® PRO/Wireless and WiFi Link Drivers-Only for Windows* XP
Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows* XP 32-Bit

Install the driver and everything worked!
