Windows XP machine won't detect any wireless networks when using Windows to manage wireless networks
Posted on 2009-04-03
I have a Lenovo X61 laptop where the onboard wireless won't detect any wireless networks though Windows says the card is fine. Using the "search for wireless networks" feature in windows doesn't work, no wireless networks detected.
I thought it was the card, I put in an PCMCIA Linksys card and installed the drivers and utility and that worked, using the Linksys utility to configure the connection, I was able to connect to a wireless connection adn browse. When I tried letting Windows manage it, no wireless networks found.
Seems to be a Windows related issue. Wireless Zero configuration service is started.
Are there any free utilities out there I can use instead of Windows?
