i have a strange problem with 3 Win7 Pro computers (2x 32bit 1x 64bit). I simply can´t activate the wifi adapter. The driver is installed succesfully. I can´t find anything on this issue on google, does anyone have a suggestion?
nope, the driver seems to be installed correctly. when i look at the properties in hardwaremanager it says: driver installed correctly. i even can access the settings mask (network and sharing center -> network adapters -> wifi adapter -> rightclick -> properties) to set up an ip, uncheck boxes (for example internetprotocoll IPv6 etc.), but it won´t let me activate it.
when i click activate, he shows the usual small windows showing "activating" -> "activated", no error message but the adapter still says deactivated. there is no error message in the eventlog regarding the wifi adapter or any other network specific event.
i tried different drivers in the meantime, no success so far..
when you say activate, I assume this is from network and sharing>network connections?
In the overview where you see all network adapters and VPN connections etc.
The WiFi adapter is grey and the status is "deactivated". When i right click it and click "activate", the small window saying "activating" -> "activated" pops up. Everything looks normal, except that the adapter stays deactivated.
