R51-18308KU

In final throes of rebuilding my son's prep school R51 - and have everything completed except the wireless connecting to the router; the driver is correct and the device appears in my device manager - but I cannot connect to my wireless network.  Nor can I find a utility to configure the wireless - the only option shown (through a Windows-only utility) is a hexadecimal connection log in to my wireless router - which I have enabled as WPA / W2K - using alpha numeric log on.

Installed wireless ThinVantage connection manner - no avail - acting as though the wireles is not on - which I have confirmed it is.  Should uninstall and re-install the wireless driver.

Re: R51-18308KU

you would need to reinstall the drivers, before you install the access connection.
