  1. hey lads hows going thats my first post here in the forum and hope i'll get some help, am sure i will :)

    anyway my problem is i have a laptop its made by TARGA its german made, anyway i own this laptop for more than a year, but last week just had my broadband wireless, and this laptop had a built in wireless network (802.11g MiniPCI Wireless Network Adapter Ralink Chipset RT2500), i have a wireless network at home, my laptop wont pick any thing for the wireless not even in college or friends house that have wireless network, but if i used my dad laptop which its same made works fine no bother.

    i have tried everything but nothing help me, but i think maybe i should turn on my wireless network, its some configuration that i must do but i dont know where and how?? so if anyone knows anything about this plz let me know

    thnx a lot

    Do you have the drivers installed for your wireless adapter? Some laptops have a switch that you have to use to activate the radio. You may also need to use some special wireless software instead of the Windows builtin.

    The software is provided with the wireless drivers either by Targa or Ralink.

    you'll have to disable the wireless networking service.
