last night my wireless adaptor card stopped working, it is a realtek pci gbe. i have addon installed and if I hove over the black X it says "wireless lan card not exist" and if I run a diagnostic test it passes the drivers but fails and reports "WLAN card disabled" I have no idea why this has happened please can you help me.
it does show my realtek pci in device manager, and says it is working properly. I hey check the rear of my card and the led light is not working. So maybe it is the card which is broken. I have a Asus P7P55-M motherboard so how do I know what type of card I can buy that will fit into my slot?
Also I built this computer with parts I ordered, so it is custom home built. Also I have no way of downloading the latest realtek driver, as my internet seems to be only working for my smartphone, can someone donload it for me and send it to my gmail account? Maybe if I hook up my usb from my phone to my pc that might work.
You could try downloading the drivers from here to see if it will work. I would save the download first and scan it just in case but it looks like the manufacturers' site. If it fails to work afterwards then it looks as if it's failed.

Is this "add-on" also a wireless-connection utility that you're using instead of the normal Windows method? Because Device Manager says the card is present and working then maybe it's a software problem so try disabling this third-party utility and then use the Windows way of connecting to wireless networks.
It doesnt let me launch the config utility. It is the program that came with the card. But it doesnt want to open the launch config. Im afraid if I uninstall it the card might become a vital error or stop working all together. Plus i dont know what types of card my motherboard can take.
