No wireless networks in Vista
Posted on 2011-09-26
I have a problem on a Toshiba laptop computer with the wireless networking. The wireless networking will not locate any wireless networks though they exist. I have reinstalled the driver and the driver indicates that it's working properly. The wireless networking indicator light is on. I have started the computer with a Linux disk and have successfully used the wireless network through Linux. The WLAN autoconfiguration service is started. I have stopped and restarted the service as well as restarting the computer after every change.
The one strange thing that I see that I think may be the issue is the the properties for the wireless network adapter does not have a Wireless tab. Also the system doesn't ever tell me that there are wireless networks available. The only network available is the std. ethernet connection.
I have also done a repair on the Winsock settings by doing the following:
netsh winsock reset
netsh int ipv4 reset
netsh int ipv6 reset
We're not using ipv6 but I did that anyway.
I have uninstalled the Toshiba configfree tool so that I can use the Windows configuration tool. No difference.
I have tried configuring it with the Ethernet cable plugged both in and out.
I've checked all over the internet but haven't come up with anything. I hope someone out there can help cuz I'm completely out of ideas.
Thanks in advance for the assist.
