computer does not list the available wireless networks

My computer is used to list all available wireless networks I could choose, but now not a list of people or don't allow me to search for available networks. I'm in a place where I know there is a wireless network available, however, my computer will not display it or no matter what other networks unless I plug in an ethernet cable to my computer. Then, it connects, but still does not display the wireless options. Help, please!

  • Windows XP does not display the available wireless connections

    I formatted my hard drive and created two partitions. Then I installed Windows XP in one of them and Vista in the other. Then only under Vista the network card works and I see all kinds of connections available. Where, in Win XP it will not display the available wireless connections. I have tried everything to try to activate my net work card but can't find a way to do it. Maybe Win XP a clean installation driver missing. Does anyone have any ideas? I have studied all the forums and that you can't find the answer.

    Thanks for all the ideas that I could research.

  • Toshiba satellite 2450 s203 does not recognize the atheros wireless network adapter

    Hello!

    I have a toshiba satellite 2450 s203 and a network card wireless atheros integrated - somewhere in the laptop - there.

    However, I am running win xp pro and the Device Manager IS NOT to FIND THE MAP!

    He finds the ethernet card and a 1394 network adapter!

    But not the wireless network card!

    Any ideas? I downloaded the drivers from the card wireless site but without success!

    What should I do?

    Thank you!

    Hello
    The WiFi card is an option for this model for example. It is not included in all machines. You must purchase the correct module for W - lan to work.

    If the card is installed in the machine, you should see a yellow esclamation mark (!) or "unknown device" If you uninstalled hw.

  • wireless network is no longer listed under "available wireless network.

    Have a router MN-500 with modem cable connection. Wireless connectivity has been running successfully for months. Came home last night during a snowstorm - apparently we had lost power temporarily while I was gone, as the clocks were flashing. Turned on my laptop (where I connect to wireless internet) and discovered that my own wireless network was is no longer listed under available wireless networks. Then I noticed on the router all lights were lit on the router with the exception of 4 ports. I disconnected and reconnected. Then I reset with a paperclip. Always shows does not itself. Now, I don't know what to do; even do not know where the shoe pinches. Although I managed to set up the network by myself I'm not a computer expert. We can connect by cable via the router, but my wireless network has apparently disappeared. Any ideas/suggestions? Thank you.

    If you connect to the router via a wired connection, you can check the status of the wireless.  Frankly, this router does not provide you with a good security because he can't stand that WEP (do not forget that it is b only). For reasons of safety only, you must consider replacing by a modern router that supports WPA2. If you have computers more former with older operating systems and wireless network cards that don't support WPA, take into account risk - data theft, identity theft, etc.

  • Can't see the available wireless networks

    I bought a new router (netgear300) and tried to connect to it. For some reason any would connect to my computer, but it has not been through the modem, so I uninstalled the network card and reinstalled and rebooted the computer. Now, I do not see the wireless networks available and cannot connect to anything. I tried to download the readers online, connect to the network manually, but nothing seems to work. I get 3 error messages when I try. They are; 1 reset your wireless, 2 network adapter. the NIC "atheros ar5007 802. 11 b / g wifi adapter "known issues of pilot or related equipment, 3. Make sure that the internet protocol bindings are correct. I did all the and still nothing seems to work, and I still don't see the available wireless networks. Nothing has had this problem before? My laptop is a compaq presario f700 model. I am currently using windows vista Home premium and have the cd of windows 7 Professional, but I don't know if the upgrade with this question will repair or remain the same. Someone knows how to fix this?

    Hi Mattcreatr,

    Step 1:

    Make sure you have the latest NETWORK adapter drivers installed.

    Also, see if there is a software that goes along with the drivers.  If so, get the latest version of this as well.

    Update drivers: recommended links

    Step 2;

    Also, see if there is a software that goes along with the drivers.  If so, download the recent plus version and that as well.

    Also, make sure that the wireless adapter is turned on.

    a. Click Start, type network and sharing in the search box Center start and press ENTER.

    b. click on change adapter settings.

    c. right click on the connection, and then select activate.

    Step 3:

    Alternatively, you can perform a restore of the system to a restore point where you do not experience the problem and check.

  • This computer does not meet the minimum requirements... when installing graphics Intel HD 4000 for my Dell Vostro 5560 with Windows 7 64 bit

    In recent days, I reinstall Windows 7 to my Dell Vostro 5560 and this laptop does not have a driver CD, I downloaded all the required drivers for my laptop directly from the Dell Support Web site. I started to install a step by step. Chipsets, Audio, network, MEI, etc... However, once I try to install graphics, this laptop comes with 2 graphics card, an Intel and another is Nvidia. So, I try to install first Intel. When I click on the exe file, a message box appears saying that «this computer does not meet the minimum requirements...» ». Why is - what happened? I'm sure that my laptop include Intel graphics. Please help me as soon as POSSIBLE. I want to install Windows 7.

    Some drivers of today require at least Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5. Is this possible?

    It is certainly. AMD demanded 4 .NET. x + for their installer drivers for several years already, but I think they have started including with their driver downloads recently.

    -I never noticed if Nvidia use .NET with their drivers Installer, install but .NET 4.5.

    Download Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 of the official Microsoft Download Center

    Please read the notes on the AMD driver file...

    Description: This package provides the AMD graphics driver high definition (HD) and Catalyst Control Center for models of laptop computers that are running an operating system supported. For laptops equipped with switchable graphics modes, this package contains the drivers for the two graphics (GPU). Switchable graphics allow users to switch between a graphical power mode (normally used under the power of the battery) and a mode of graphics performance. If the video output high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver.

    The Intel driver is only for the models with only the Intel UMA graphics adapter.

    You must live with what version of the video, Intel is in the AMD driver package.
