I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have recently had a problem with my computer showing no wireless networks. There are other computers that can log on without a problem (obviously, one which I am using).

It is well noteworthy to mention that a few days ago there was an accidental download that initiated. Trendmicro caught it and says the last virus/malware found is: TROJ_DROPPER from C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventlog.dll.

(I thought trendmicro caught it, and Prevx cleaned my system, but it may be contributing to the problem or has done damage)

Since then, at school, I have noticed my computer was connected to the internet (I could still surf the web) but would say that it was NOT connected. When I went home, my computer would say it detected a wireless network, however, when I clicked on it it would say "no wireless network detected"

I tried a few things including:

1.Uninstalling the Network adaptor
Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN and letting it reinstall on start-up (No luck)

2.running HostXpert

3.and a few other things like, checking to make sure some necessary functions are started such as the wireless zero config. (et al).Click to expand...

I have Toshiba laptop and Win 7. It is brand new laptop and original windows. I tried to install AWUS036H and it was successful but unfortunately adapter doesn't detect any networks. It happened with my old laptop with Win 7(Acer) and I had to reinstall windows fresh and it worked. But I wouldn't like to do it again here. As you may see on picture internal adapter has X in corner and it is working but RTL8187 doesn't, it just says Enabled and nothing happens. No networks detecting. In device manager everything is fine, no yellow icons. Also it is not detected by my ipconfig/all command. The same thing happens in safe mode

Adapter is not broken, it is working on linux. This is image from win 8.1 but it happens on my Win 7

What driver is currently installed?

Try this

Download the latest ar956x driver from here:

Release: 2014-07-22 [July '14]
OS: Windows 7 32/64bit
Status: WHQL
File: win7- (2585 KB)

Unzip the package and note the location
Uninstall the driver from the device in Dev mgr, remove software if presented (checkbox or prompt)
then update the driver from within Dev mgr using the unzipped inf file

Some reports on the Qualcom board indicate that you might have success with an earlier version, but I only see then on the site I linked.

Try the newest first , then the 255 (270 was the one the poster on Qualcom complained about)

Maybe the Toshiba site has a version that works. My method is to install the base or original driver from the PC OEM support page and work up if the peripheral board driver doesn't help solve the issue.

Please fill in your SevenForums specs so members can be more help - All I know is that you have a Toshiba laptop with Win7 on it.

Please don't waste your time typing the information in a post - place it in your system specs - then any time you create a thread, people can look at your machine specs in the lower left hand corner of any post.

Specific model information is important, there are usually many Satelltite models.

Ok so here's the thing. Installed W8 pro with media centre (x86). Everything worked fine, connected to internet wirelessly no problem. Then after a couple of days I get no networks found out of the blue for no apparent reason.

Here are the facts:

Router/internet connection is fine, other devices in my house still connect fine.
Network card fine. Have the most up to date drivers, device working properly etc etc.
If I connect pc to router with ethernet cable I can get on internet fine.
If I do a troubleshoot it just tells me to investigate router or access point issues (turn router off for 10 seconds etc). Like I said, router is fine; NO networks are found, neighbour's one usually comes up but not any more.

Any help appreciated!

A:Wifi - No networks found

Maybe your neighbor quit broadcasting SSID. Go to Starbucks and check their wireless out, assuming your router isn't wireless. Is your router wireless? Are there any wireless computers at your place connecting wirelessly via your router? Could a mechanical wifi switch on your computer have been accidentally turned off.

My 2016 ProBook 455 was in standby mode and hot to the touch, so I opened it up to make sure everything was OK. Apparently it had gotten so hot it shut itself down (though I don't know how?the vents weren't blocked and it wasn't even doing anything), and now that it's booted back up my wifi icon has a red X in the corner and says "No wifi networks found". My wifi is working fine on my phone and desktop; I even rebooted the router just to be sure. All the built-in Windows 10 and HP diagnostic tools say there's no problem, but it's still not detecting any wifi networks (not even the 10 others I regularly see from elsewhere in my apartment building). Help, please!

My wireless used to work on my HP Pavilion dv8000 laptop with windows xp. Everything seems to be working but when I try to locate my wireless network in the same room none are found. I brought it to other locations with wifi and it has the same problem (no networks found).
This is done when I click on the small wireless icon on the lower right side of my screen.
Now here's what I find strange.
When I click on the Internet Explorer and "diagnose connection problems" the network diagnostics for windows xp comes up, I select wireless connection and every wireless connection in the area is displayed. I highlight my network (that has a full signal) and click "next" and I get the message:
This computer is set up to use 802.1x authentication and directs me to open up "network connections" and select the network i want to make any changes to but I'm back to the "NO networks found".

Hi... PLease help

I have been looking through all kinds of reasons why this may be and I am at a loss now!

I have been using wireless network with Sky and Vista OS with no problems at all until today when my laptop will not find ANY Networks. I know it's not my Modem as I'm using it now on my other laptop. There are other networks in my range now, but my other comp won't find them either.

My drivers in device manager are:
REALTEK RTL8187B Wireless 802.1b/g 54Mbs USB 2.0 Network adapter
Nvidia nForce Networking controller (although I don't think this one matters for this problem!)

Should I have any others within there?

I cannot think of anything else to try.

The only thing that I have recently changed was I installed itunes yesterday...

Any help please guys... Really need it up and running again ASAP!

I am not able to connect to my wireless network. This is my Compaq laptop, with Windows XP Pro, and Intel PRO wireless 2200BG.

I am sure nothing is wrong with the wireless router or the connection. I am able to connect to it (and couple of other unsecured networks) from my work laptop. I have downloaded and installed the latest driver from Intel. In the device network connection properties it does say 'This device is working properly'.

I loaded the registry file (/config/software) from my old/crashed hard drive. (as I was having problem with windows activation). I don't know if that messed something up.

Any suggestion on how this can be fixed.

New NEC iSelect M5210 laptop from Ebuyer. XP-Home built-in Atheros AR5005G wireless, connecting to Netgear DG834G Wireless ADSL router. When first set it up, laptop could not find my wireless router. Connected to router via Ethernert completed setup then noticed Wireless network had been found. After 3 weeks of no trouble, switched on today & L/T cannot find Wireless Network. Router is OK as my other wireless attached PC works fine. The built in wireless connection says it is OK, have disable/enabled, basically when I try & refresh netwoirk list it finds nothing. Any ideas?? Could it be a failed network connector in the PC (even though XP says the device has no problems) AVG A/V, standard XP Home Firewall, latest updates. Tried Restore back several days, still will not find Wireless Neyworks. Was working fine!

A:No wireless networks were found within range

Yes it could be a failed network adapter.

XP is very very poor at detecting when a network adapter has gone bad, infact I've had at least 3 network cards die on me over the years, and EVERY time XP said it was fine.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.


Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

Her laptop does have a wireless network adapter and it has worked many times before, but she usually just uses wired connection. She hasn't used the wireless capabilities in quite some time. I just bought a new wireless router so we could connect wirelessly intead. My computer connects perfectly, but her computer won't show the network. But i know this isnt the router's problem because when she searches for networks, NONE are shown.. and we are in an apartment building.. there are hundreds of those networks around here, and i see them on my list of shown networks.

I have an old Sony Vaio laptop, it does not have internal wireless card so I use a PCMCIA wireless card in it. I just installed windows XP Pro with SP2. The laptop came with XP Home before sp1.

Anyway? I can?t see any wireless networks and I have 3 of them in my room.

I have put in another hard drive into the unit and restored the computer to factory settings and the PCMCIA wireless card works fine. (This laptop is too old to have built in wireless so no on/off switch here)
I have installed all the drivers for the laptop and there are no issues in device manager.
I know my network adapter is Enabled so no issues there.
I have tried restarting zero wireless config service. No luck there.
I?ve reinstalled the wireless driver. No luck

I?m wondering I have the wireless working on one hard drive and not working on another. I?ve upgraded them both to SP2, the only difference is one is home and one is pro, and the home is factory settings. However I?ve uninstalled all programs on the factory drive hoping there was extra software that would cause it to stop working and I could just reinstall that.

The wireless appears to be working but I cannot view any. It says there are no wireless networks available.

Is there anything I can copy from the factory drive?
Any other ideas of what could be wrong here?

What "something" did you do ?

Have you turned on the wireless button ? Is there a light on indicating the wireless is turned on (the radio icon) ?

How many networks do you usually see available ? Is it possible that there really aren't any networks broadcasting in your area ? Do you see networks available from another computer ?

Hi :)

I'm on a HP Compaq 6715s running Windows XP Pro, SP3. I've been using this laptop since September- it was in its 'original' state as it was bought in 07, but never used. Everything was fine with it until yesterday, when -after a restart- I couldn't connect to the my network anymore. At first the system forgot it even had a wireless function, but that was fairly easily resolved. Now the problem is that when I boot it up, I get a popup saying that there are wireless networks detected, but when I click on it, it searches for a bit and says that there are no networks in range.

These are things I know for a fact:

-My wireless adapter is ON (100%, yes, I've checked).
-My router is working fine. My phone can connect, so can another laptop in the house.
-Even if my router wasn't (which it is), there are at least 10 other networks around here.
-I can connect via LAN.

Things I've tried already (that I can remember):

-Windows Zero Configuration (I think that's what it's called), turned on
-Tried uninstalling/letting it reinstall on reboot; no effect
-Turning on any relevant services (services.msc), but I'm no expert on this
-Turning it off and on again (woo...)
-Yelling at it in frustration

Every day both at home and at work my computer is connecting to internet upon booting up, but quickly, the signal symbol at the bottom right (near time and date) turns to a yellow warning sign. Once this happens, a red "x" will show and the message 'No wireless networks found' will come up. All of my mobile devices, and all other computers at work don't seem to be having this problem, which rules out any issues with the routers involved. Even when I lose connection on my laptop, all other devices remain connected. I've searched through the forums for a solution  but I haven't come across one.

I have XP Pro on an IBM T42 laptop. Had significant trouble with trojans/malware recently, but believe I have cleaned and recovered.

Currently my wireless network at home is functioning OK. But when I go to "View Wireless Networks" it says that there are "No wireless networks in range." Also when I go to Advanced Settings, there is no data listed under "Preferred Networks."

I have two concerns. First I am wondering if there is still some residual effect from the malware that I should be concerned about. Second, when I travel I cannot search for available wireless networks because the utility always reports that none are available, even though some networks certainly are.

Thanks very much for any advice and help.

First off, the pop-up is probably spyware advertising it self. If you get the pop up, then the Satellite is
a. either already connected or
b. has connected in the past.

Since you are able to post, why not use the machine you are posting from to download HijackThis, AVG, Adaware and Spybot. Then burn a CD with the files on it.

ALSO, check and make sure the wireless lan switch on the Satellite, either on the front, or the side is turned ON. The default is for them to be OFF.

I currently have a Qualcom Wireless AC Card in my Yoga 920. When I change wifi networks, I don't always get the internet going right away (we have 2 networks at home and several different networks in the office). I would need to right click on the wifi icon in the task bar and click on troubleshoot, then wait for it to fix itself. This happens probably 90% of the time when I change networks (ie Home network, then when at the office, I connect to the Work network and have to perform the troubleshoot to get the internet going then vice versa when back home. Or even changing between our 2 different Home networks - as in from different ISPs and not just changing between 2.4 and 5ghz connection). Also, is there something wrong with Chrome for the 920? When I change networks, and get the internet going (as in the wifi icon property says that there is internet and the yellow triangle exclamation is not present anymore), google chrome does not automatically connect to the internet and load pages. Edge, on the other hand, does not have issues upon gaining internet connection after the troubleshoot. For reference, I have a custom built desktop. I have an Intel AC 8265 in it, and it does not have this issue when switching between our home networks and chrome does not any issue as well. So yeah, I have two issues. Any ideas?

Hi, I've searched for about an hour and a half around the forums to try and find the answer to this but I didn't. I'd rather not bring my laptop to the store for repairs since I don't know when I'll see it back !!

I have a laptop, about 2 years old. Worked almost flawlessly until recently. It's a toshiba satellite celeron 2.8 I believe with 768 megs of RAM.
I have a problem with my wireless connection. Recently, it started "not finding available networks". It's stupid because the wireless card actually works since I'm connected right now, as I am typing this. My card automatically connects to the last network it was in, so I can only connect to a random network that is around my house, but not my actual one. I cannot change my connection to my own router since it says "No wireless networks found in range". It's not cool because now, at school, I can't get on the network since it can't find it...

The Network stumbler finds 8 connections around my house, but the "wireless network connection" window doesn't.

I reinstalled my drivers, I tried playing in the services and msconfig-boot utilities to see if I had disabled something... nothing.

anybody ever saw something like that ?
thanks a lot in advance.

I am trying to help my daughter who has a VAIO SVE1511PGXS laptop running Windows 7 64 Bits Home Premium with a weird problem in that the available nearby WIFI networks are not "SEEN" or shown when hovering the mouse over the WIFI icon on the task bar.

If you add a WIFI network by hand the laptop will connect and work normally but if you move to another location and need to change to a different access point the available networks will not show and you need to enter the network again manually. INSSIDER or similar programs will show available networks without a problem.

The laptop has a QUALCOMM ATHEROS AR9485WB-EG wireless/bluetooth combination card and have already tried updating the drivers (to bothe the SONY website version and the Qualcomm version) with no results.

Have uninstalled Sony's EASY CONNECT and Smart Network and also unistalled/reinstalled the Client for Microsoft Networks as suggested in several places but problem persists. The WIFI service (WLAN AUTO CONFIG) starts automatically and does not report errors.

Have also tried resetting WINSOCK and TCPIP but no dice....

My daughter is not sure when this problem started (several months ago) but she believes it happened after installing a group of Windows updates several weeks ago....

At this point it would appear to be that the only remedy would be a full Windows 7 reinstall but my daughter has TONS of email, pictures, documents. etc and reinstallin... Read more

A:Weird WIFI Problem: Unable to "SEE" available wireless networks

You could see this thread regarding the zero-config service. Or maybe qualcomm or sony have firmware separate from the actual drivers.

If it comes to a reinstall, MigWiz will transfer all the settings and documents with a few clicks. Always have a separate backup though.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron laptop with a Netgear wireless router. Everything has been working without any problems for 2 yrs until this weekend when I noticed that in the 'wireless network connection' it says "no wireless networks found in range".

When I discovered this problem I assumed that the server at the hotel was down so I didn't worry until I got home and still had the same problem. Only difference was that at home my laptop connected to the internet even though the 'wireless network connection' still says "no wireless networks found in range".

I am confident that it's not my router because my other laptop is working fine. I am still connected to the internet... so why can't my wireless connections be viewed? There has always been at least 3 connections listed at any given time here at my house.

Any help would be helpful and gratefully appreciated. I am a novice so please use simple explainations with step by step directions.
Thanks for you time!!!

My laptop model is L55-A5284 at Windows10 and the wireless card is REALTEK RTL8188EE. I was sharing the hotel wifi because it only allows one device but suddenly after a few days the wifi sharing programs keep saying I have no wireless card or AP mode not supported even though I can still connect to the internet through WiFi. I already updated Realtek Driver at Device Manager but still not working.

I have no clue what to do as the guides in the net aren't working and I'm running out of options

I was wondering if, in Windows 8, there's a way to configurity the priority/order of wireless networks? In Windows 7, it use to be under "Manage wireless networks", but I can't seem to find it in Win8. I have two wireless networks in my home, and Win8 always seems to pick the one with the weaker signal (farthest away).


A:No "Manage Wireless Networks" (order/prioritize wireless networks?)


Found the answer:

Manage Wireless Networks observation

I added a shortcut on Desktop with:

explorer.exe shell:::{1fa9085f-25a2-489b-85d4-86326eedcd87}
and I can now bring up "Manage wireless networks" and change the network priority/order from there.

Hi, guys. I'm having a heck of a time with setting up my wireless network. I have an old desktop wired to Netgear wgt624 and trying to connect my laptop wireless to share internet connection and files between the two computers. I want to transfer all large files from desktop to laptop so I could burn it on DVDs. I used to be able to share internet connection even though laptop speed was significantly lower than desktop it was o.k. for browsing internet. Settings for router: Network authentication=WPA-PSK, Data encryption=TKIP with network key and don't broadcast ssid. In the process of trying to make file sharing work I changed a couple of settings. I changed automatic IP address to static (copied from desktop), created same usernames for both computers (even though it doesn't ask to set a password for some reason), and made some files and drives "shared". Now I can't connect to internet either. It does show network in range however when I click on connect, it tries to connect and the moment it says "connected", the message "No wireless networks were found in range" comes up. Then I refresh network list and it shows my network is connected with excellent signal strength but I can't get online. I feel like giving up on this network thing. It's sooo frustrating. I was so happy when i was able to cruise internet in the livingroom instead of having to stay next to the cable modem but I'm sure it's worth all thi... Read more

A:My Wireless And Wired Networks Only Show Up As "Unidentified/Local Only" Networks

First off, the capitalization of every word is a little annoying just fyi.

Second, try reinstalling drivers for your network card, and make sure your computer is updated. What are you using to monitor the WiFi card? The vista program or a third party program?

I have two networks showing. I use the one called Ghi
The second one I think is a leftover from when I had this computer set to share printing and files with another computer on my home network.
Is it safe to delete the second one if my assumption is true that it is a leftover?

Hi All,

Here at work we recently had an access point installed for customer access to the internet. We have had no problems with anyone access the network until today. I am not that knowledgeable with wireless so please forgive me if I fail to give you what you need to help.

D-Link DWL-G700AP Wireless Access point

normally customer just click on connect to networks and their adapter finds the many wireless networks in our area (about 8). They choose our network and type in the network key and they are connected.

We have a customer in this morning (now) that cannot connect.
Here is what I have found:

If you click on the wireless icon, choose connect to any network. You get: "Cannot find any network."

I then setup a connection manually; still does not find networks.

Here is the weird part: If you go into the Control Panel, choose Wireless Config Utility; Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility, Choose site monitor site. It shows a list of the wireless networks and there signal strength. So the wireless adapter is receiving the wireless signals, but will not connect or show them in the list of wireless networks.

I would really appreciate help in figuring out what is keeping this computer from connecting.

A:Wireless adaptor cannot find networks, but shows signal levels in wireless utility

I don't understand "It shows a list of the wireless networks" in the same paragraph with "will not ... show them in the list."

Hey to TSG!!

I need help in this one. My Bluetooth used to capture others (with no password) wireless networks but if I do extensive use on it, it will not work. For one wireless network, it gets connected but nothing appears and for another, it doesnt get connected at all though it used to. They all are in low signal but they used to work fine!

I dont know what to do right now. Is my bluetooth screwed up? I used to download large files (more than 500 mb) before but now it doesnt get connected.

Please tell me what to do firstly!

Dear all, happy New Year! I have a major problem: My new IdeaCentre 310S - 08IAP desktop frequently drops wireless connection and  then is unable to find any wireless network at all. A restart will sometimes help out - but activiating and deactivating Wifi does not help. So a restart is required.
