My Wireless Connections Icon in gone -- I can connect by wire only

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?YWlzNzIxNw==?=, Jan 26, 2006.

  1. I have had a Thinkpad which always worked on wireless networks. Coffee shops
    and my own lynksys flawlessly.

    Suddenly this capability is gone. There is no Wireless Connection Icon in
    the Networks window or a connection icon in the info line. What happened? I
    cannot locate the Wireless Network Adapter anywhere in the system. How do I
    recover?

    My dad put some new programs on the machine including Bluetooth stuff. Did
    this wreck my wireless?

    Right mouse click 'My Computer' on the Desktop > Properties > Hardware > Add
    Hardware, then scan for devices already connected, see if XP can pick up the
    WiFi card.

    It might already be installed, but the driver needs updating, so you might
    need to do this instead.
