I bought my tower with Visa 64bit installed, it has an atena at the back but since the upgrade it doesnt seem to work? Ive ran a driver search but it doesnt say anything missing?

Go to There website and see if there is a driver download. Is the Wireless card showing in device manager? This would be my firdt port of call.

Start/Run...type msinfo32 and hit Enter.

Right side of the screen...what is reflected for System Manufacturer and System Model?

Note: The above may not work in Win 7, mine are XP instructions. An alternative for finding info on your system: SIW System Information for Windows - http://www.gtopala.com/
