Laptop cannot find any wireless network
Posted on 2007-11-18
I have a laptop that cannot see my home wireless network even when it is sitting 1m from the router. It also cannot see any of the neighbours wireless networks.
A second laptop can see, and use, the wireless connection just fine, and can see all the neighbours networks too.
So how can i make the first laptop recognise the network? I have tried disabling and re-enabling the wireless connection, I have also tried repairing the connection but with no luck. I have checked the drivers in the device manager, there is no small yellow question mark, and windows claims the wireless adapter is working fine.
I downloaded the latest drivers for the wireless adapter and installed them anyway but it didn't change anything. What can i try next?
The laptop is a Gateway, and it's wireless adapter is made by Broadcom, plus it is running Windows XP. Any help much appreciated!
