    My grandson has a computer with a wireless card installed and was running
    well to the local router in his house. There was a problem with 2 cards
    suddenly conflicting with each other so I removed all of the cards and
    replaced them one at a time. Now the conflict is gone but the wireless card
    does not find the access point anymore. I tried 3 different types of
    wireless card and all of them do the same thing. It says " One or more
    wireless networks are available" but when he brings up the connection
    dialog, it says there are none available. I know the wireless network is
    available because I can take my laptop to his house and connect right up.

    Any suggestions as to what to try next??

    TIA

    Possibly the SSID broadcast is turned off at the AP and your laptop has been
    setup to look for this specific SSID but your grandson's computer has not.
