Okay, this is kind of a funny story here, but I will cut it short. I have a Linksys Gateway Adapter (WMP54G V2). I have 2 computers: 1 is wireless and the other is hardwired through the router/modem. I want to basically switch this setup (meaning my wireless computer become hardwired and my once hardwired computer become wireless). Everything went fine... I took out my network adapter in my wireless comp. and I hooked up the modem and router to my once wireless computer. I could get on the internet fine with it. (by the way, my router is a WRT54GS v7)

The trouble starts when I try to install the network adapter in my ONCE wired computer. I slide it into a PCI slot, successfully finish the Found New Hardware Wizard and everything... BUT the Wireless Internet Connection icon is not in the taskbar! When I go to my network connections, there is nothing there!
Also, device manager shows that it should be fully working....
Any ideas?

arnack try uninstall the device in device manager and restart. after that you should be asked to install it again. do that and see if it fixes anything. if that doesnt work please find your network device in device manager and upload a screenshot.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
