Hello,we have two desktop Pc's both hard wired to a Linksys router. One P.C is on Windows 7 system the other is on Vista. The windows 7 is connecting O.K. The one on Vista is showing " Does not have a wireless network adaptor, install & configure. The Vista P.C. was working O.K. a couple of days ago.Also not connecting to a laptop from the host computer on the Vista system Any suggestions how to sort this problem. Thanks

Your heading appears to be at odds with the text under it. Is this a wired system or wireless ?

Check Windows Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager and see if the wireless adapter is present or yellow flagged. Could be a driver problem.

Is that wireless adapter PCI or USB ?

To save confusion I am not going to attempt to address the laptop problem.

As you have stated that the non-connecting computer is hard wired to the router, but the error message refers to the wireless, I would start by checking your adapters (Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings). What adapters are listed there, and are any errors indicated?
