No Wireless Functionality

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Problem.

I can only get internet through tethering my phone. I have an asus pce n13 and a buffalo wireless N usb adapter, neither are working as intended. This is after changing my power supply, there were no issues before the power supply change.

I cannot get wireless connectivity with either, the pce n13 isn't even detected and the buffalo adapter does not function as intended but shows up in the device manager as an unknown wireless N device. Both drivers have been installed separately and together to no avail, I'm guessing its something to do with my mobo but I'm not sure. I have checked all connections and they are set right and in the right place.

Side note, my DVD drive will not open when it is connected via IDE so my whole computer seems a bit wonky since the power supply swap.

I cannot switch back to the old power supply as it was RMA'd.

You have 2 options, if you can borrow another PSU to check if it is PSU problem, other one is to reinstall Windows to check if it is software problem. Since the problems came after you swap PSU it will probably be bad PSU (your new one). Also it is possible that your RMA-ed PSU damaged your motherboard (before you RMA-ed it. Please give us more details.

Bah. I just moved so I don't have a lot of parts around me for a week or so. However I don't think the old psu damaged the mobo but ill leave that open. The reason for this is that everything was functioning before the swap and under the new psu everything is getting power its just not talking to the mobo.

For instance:
the DVD drive stops working when IDE is connected. But unplugged from IDE it functions but obviously can't read discs. This is a problem right now because I only have windows discs and not the files on my computer so I cannot reformat like I want to.

I'm kind of stuck. Tonight I think I'm just going to tear the whole comp apart and hopefully I missed something but again seems unlikely and software/BIOS related
