Not able to enable Wireless Adapter

D

Daniel

After installing Vista for the first time i was able to use internet over the
wireless Adapter.

But after i set my ASUS Notebook into Hibernate i lost the ability to enable
my
Wireless Adapter.
Even to restart the system is not enough to enable the Wireless Adapter.

The current driver on my System are Intel/Pro Wireless 3945ABG.

Could anyone help me please?

Have you tried to disable it, then re-enable it?

Hello everyone

I am running Vista 64, and I WAS having a similar problem.

I was trying to use a USB WLAN adapter, and I had tried 4 different adapters, and all updated drivers for each adapter. Had tried turning off AV and firewall.

With every driver and adapter, the same problem:
Windows seemed happy with the driver, but the adapter always showed as "disabled". If tried to enable, it would show: "Enabling......... Enabled!" but it would never actually enable it.
After weeks of troubleshooting and searching the net, I had given up.

This afternoon, I accidentally figured out what was causing this problem!

Uninstall ZoneAlarm!

Somehow, even when ZA was disabled, it was keeping my wireless device from enabling....

I hope this will help someone.

I was having this same problem, but in Windows 7, and I am SO happy I finally found this advice about uninstalling Zone Alarm! I was trying to enable my wireless adapter for hours with no luck, tried re-installing all the drivers, couldn't find anything about the problem on Windows 7 forums. The very instant the Zone Alarm uninstaller started working, the problem was fixed! Thank you so much!!!
