ASUS P5B Dlx - Wi/Fi Setup?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Has anyone succesfully got this to work?

First, the driver for the built in Wi-fi is not on the CD.....you have to go to the website and download it.....hard to do when you can't connect tot he internet!!!! LMAO

So, drop it onto the flashdrive with another system and load it up.......I get an Icon on my desktop for the ASUS WiFi-AP Solo....and a small icon on my taskbar.....hover the mouse over it and it says "Wi-FI ADAPTER NOT CONNECTED"

But it is connected......I did a restart and still nothing......it's kinda important as this system was meant to be remote.....

Try BIOS 0614 or 0706, these maybe better for you.... but I have not tried it, as it was one of the first things to be removed from the MB... an unrequired interrupt taking CPU time.

I found this over on XS:

If you are experiencing wireless connection issues using Windows XP 64-bit (and quite possibly 32-bit) and the P5B-D Wifi-AP Card/Antenna, try downloading the driver from the Asus Support Website. Download the same exact driver as is on the CD, the only difference is, the driver is unsigned, and Windows will need confirmation before continuin the install an unsigned driver.

Hope this helps..

You can also try the following:

1) Uninstall the drivers
2) Shut down and go to the BIOS
3) Disable the adapter in the USB section of the BIOS
4) Boot into Windows
5) Shut down and go back into the BIOS
6) Enable the adapter in the USB section of the BIOS
7) Boot into windows
8) Cancel the new hardware found dialog
9) Install the driver that you Downloaded from the ASUS site
10) Prey

Hope this helps

Tried that......nothing.


Someone on the ASUS forums said he's had 2 that worked flawlessly.


I'm at a loss. BTW, there aren't any drivers for the Wi-Fi on the CD at all.....***?


Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it also claims my USB ports aren't running at 2.0 speeds.......of course, when I try to install the USB drivers that are on the CD, it says I don't need them because they are included in SP1.........

:swearing:

Have a look in your Device Manager and make sure that the Intel USB Root Hubs are all there... it maybe the WiFI sits off one of these ports and if it is disabled in BIOS then, of course, cannot function.

Man I wish I could give you rep.


Not specificaly for the advice, but for giving me a weird idea. I had looked in Device Manager, 2 of my USB roots had the yellow "i" of a problem......meaning no drivers installed.....which made sens since it wasn't recognizing.

However, on a long shot...I DISABLED them both from the device manager (still enabled in BIOS), and then I tried to 'update driver' for them. I pointed the driver updater in windows to the driver folder I downloaded from the internet and it loaded up and said the device was disabled and windows would enable it.

Then, the "New hardware found" pop-up appeard, and it recognized the wireless adapter!!!!!!


That's a serious *** issue....especially since there is nothing in the manual about Wi-fi.......here' what I found out after a good nights sleep......


The package you download from ASUS website is the program ASUS Wi-Fi Solo Ap.......when you install it (haven't used it to see what it does) it does NOT install the drivers. It appears the only way to install the drivers is to force them through with Device Manager!!!!

But since a few other people have figured it out I guess it's an operator error, just think they need some instructions to clarify the steps.
