How to make my wireless computer see the wireless network?
Posted on 2009-07-08
This one is baffling to me.
I have 3 computers in the house:
New HP Desktop that I use as a network hub
6-month HP notebook that I travel with
Dell Vostro notebook that is my wife's computer
The two HPs are Windows 7 and the Dell is XP Pro.
I set up a wireless network and I have a wired Ethernet network in the house too.
The wireless works great on the HPs. (Networking on Windows 7 still a little shaky, but that's in another thread).
It did work fine on the Dell when originally installed. But now, the Dell doesn't even see the wireless network. It's almost like a switch has been hit to turn off the card. But it hasn't. When I take the notebook elsewhere, I can see the wireless networks that are available, but not connect.
So, I think I broke it by copying the Network setup to my jump drive (as windows recommends) and trying to install to the XP machine. Of course, I copied from my Windows 7 machine.
How do I reset the Dell wireless card to original settings - or something - to get the wireless ability back.
BTW, I've downloaded and reinstalled the card driver too.
