    Hello my name is Tommy, I am using XP Home with a USB wireless adapter and
    when I try to View Available wireless networks everything is grayed out and
    no networks show, I have tried another adapter and get the same thing, I have
    used another notebook with the current usb adapters and everything works
    fine. Windows is still SP1 on this machine. Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Could this be a Virus?
    Thanks for any help

    Requirements for a wireless connection include successfully installing
    the USB adapter, look in Administrative Tools, Hardware, to see if there
    are any device warnings. Then you have to have the nework set up to
    talk to the USB wireless adapter. Some think just installing the USB
    adapters drivers is sufficient to create a network.

    This was a working network, everything worked, the adapter the computer, the
    network, and now it doesn't. The adapter is still good, so my question is
    still why can't I view available networks, I know that it is not bad drivers
    for the adapter as I have installed a different adapter and still can't see
    any available networks.

    I have a similar problem. Everything was working, but for some reason
    I'm using a Belkin wireless-G card (FD57001) and a Belkin router.
