Wireless Networks Not Found

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?QmlnTW8=?=, Oct 15, 2006.

  1. My laptop will not recognize (and obviously therefore connect) to my (or any
    other) wireless connection. Usually when I click on the Wireless Network
    Connections icon on the bottom right of the screen, it shows me my modem, my
    neighbors, and a host of other wireless connections, but today they all
    disappeared and I can only connect to the net if I plug my laptop into my
    modem like right now.

    The error message says to make sure my wireless switch is turned on???huh?

    Anyone had this problem before and know how to fix it? Thanks!

  2. Hi
    Many Laptops have a physical switch (or one of the Keyboard Function
    options) that physically connects, and or disconnects the Wireless Card.
    Might be that it was switched off by mistake (Read the Laptop manual).
