Hi, recently, I put in a new graphics card (XFX 1 GB GeForce 8600) and PSU (BFG 650w) into my m8020n, now the wireless internet doesn't work. On the network connections, it doesn't even show the adapter, it only shows my wired adapter. Any way to find out what the problem is and how to fix it? I'm using vista home premium.
Can someone at least tell me where to find the connection to the mobo? I'm pretty sure I just knocked it loose when I installed the components.

Check the Device Manager under Network Adapters and see if the wireless adapter is shown.
If only the LAN network adapter is shown then something's up with that wireless.
Maybe it's not connected properly inside the pc or got disconnected when you were working on the inside.
I would open it up and check.

IQ775. Similar issue: after the first power on of the day there is no wireless adaptor in device manager. Reboot and the adaptor is present and works fine until the next cold start. Will review answers in this thread and advise if I solve it.
