Alright, I am stuck with no clue how to proceed. I have the M2N32-SLI Deluxe/Wireless Edition motherboard with onboard wireless. I built this computer myself. I did a fresh install of Windows 7. I installed the wireless drivers from the asus website by putting them onto a flash drive from my laptop and installing them on my desktop.
On my wireless signal, I get the yellow triangle with a ! in the middle. Nothing else has been installed. I am at a loss of what to do to get rid of this and just get my wireless to work. We have 3 other laptops and one other desktop that work fine with no issues, but this one desktop seems to have problems.
I am at a loss, any suggested or directions? I would greatly appreciate your insight!
Does device manager show the wireless adapter is working correctly? Has an antenna been attached? Did you read the motherboard manual thoroughly regarding the wireless feature? If you eventually conclude that the onboard wireless adapter is defective, you could disable it in device manager and install a PCI-e wireless adapter.
The device manager shows it is working (well, it shows it is there and doesn't show an error). Antenna is attached. I will read the motherboard manual right now. I don't think it is defective, as I installed a regular PCI wireless adapter with the software and have the same issue.
If you installed a PCI wireless adapter and did not disable your onboard wireless, then it still is using the onboard wireless (even though the PCI wireless adapter is in place) and will give the error signal. Reading the motherboard manual is a good move.
Only thing I can guess is the software onboard software that comes with the manual says it works for windows versions up to Vista (7 wasn't out yet). That being said, Asus wi-fi uses the realtek driver, which I downloaded without success. The new pci adapter I have tried should also work, but it is having the same issues with it's software.
Here are only a couple of thoughts, but they are a stretch:
1. Make sure the drivers you are downloading are 32 bit if you have a 32 bit OS, or 64 bit for a 64 bit OS.
2. Maybe the PCI slot you are using is dead. Try putting the wireless adapter in a different PCI slot.
