Wireless card won't detect wireless network

Q: Wireless card won't detect wireless network

Hello all. I came across this website and forum through searching for this problem. I've come across similar problems but they all either end with the person taking their computer to a shop or it goes unsolved.

Here is the issue:
My computer (Dell Vostro 1500 with Windows XP) will not detect the wireless network we have here at home. The wireless card is an Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG. The laptop has a light that shows if WiFi is on or not. Whenever I turn on the laptop, the light is usually on but not detecting any wireless network (either ours or someone else's).

-This started happening about three weeks ago. There was no damage to the computer. I reformatted the laptop and reinstalled all the drivers but the problem persisted.
-Turns out one of our cats had thrown up on the router we had at the time so I figured that was the problem and waited until we got another one.
-The new one came yesterday and everything was working fine. A couple hours later the problem resurfaced.

I rolled back the driver thinking maybe that was the issue but apparently it wasn't. I tried uninstalling the wireless card and reinstalling. The only thing that accomplished was deleting the profile I had on there. I've tried the simple repair option but that hasn't worked.

I know the router is broadcasting a signal because everyone else in the house is getting the connection.

Here is what is displayed when I do the IPCONFIG/ALL in CMD:

I bought an Acer 2301 laptop a few months ago. It has an Acer IPN 2220 wireless LAN card. A few days ago I visited my brother who has a wireless network set up in his house ? DLINK ADSL broadband router. He uses the wireless network for 1 Pc and 2 laptops. As I had my laptop I tried to connect to this network but couldn?t. I tried finding wireless networks and it said there were no wireless networks found in range. I disabled and re-enabled the LAN card. I uninstalled and re-installed it. I disabled my firewall. All to no avail. The network is not running encrypted and my brother said he had no trouble connecting all his wireless cards. Can anyone explain why my wireless LAN card couldn?t find anything?


A:Wireless Lan Card Cant Detect Network

there could be several reasons for this, the card could have simply had its "radio" turned off. Most internal cards have a switch function to turn on and off their ability to detect networks. This is usually either a special button or a key combo. Check the BIOS, the card may have to be enabled in there as well as in device manager. Some systems I've encountered come with wireless disabled in the BIOS as default. Also, are you sure your brother's router was "broadcasting" its SSID. Most routers have the ability to turn this off. This causes you to have to know the SSID and config the card manually.

I have a Inspiron 1520 with a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN mini Card. Lately I noticed that if I left the laptop on (or maybe just restart, not sure, don't want to test it right now) and let it go to sleep and then turn it back on, it won't detect any wireless networks. I have to wait 10-15 minutes before it can detect networks again, I don't know what to do. I know its not the router, since it can't detect other networks either which there are a few around. I have this laptop for almost a year now. It worked just fine till recently. I think it is the network card, the driver or the hardware, I don't know, but while it just start up, it takes forever for the wireless to start detecting again. Anyone know why and what can I do about it. (BTW, I reformatted in hope it will fix it, it didn't).

If a reformat and reinstall didnt fix it, then its hardware for sure.

Hi, here is an e-mail I sent to Belkin tech support ... but I haven't heard back so I thought I'd try here. Can anyone help me?

Hi, I'm trying to set up a Belkin F5D6020 ver2 wireless adapter on my IBM 233mhz laptop running WIN98se. I want to connect to my existing wired network. I have a cable modem connected to my Belkin F5D6231-4 router. I have 2 PCs connected to the router via ethernet cable. The wired part of the network is working beautifully. All wired PCs can talk to each other. When I have my wired network adapter installed on the laptop, it works great too.

I installed the installation software on the laptop using the EASY option. I plug in the adapter card when prompted and Windows installs the drivers. My computer doesn’t ask me to restart so I restart manually. The monitor utility comes up and, after a minute, a warning message displays ‘The access point you are attempting to access does not appear to exist. Please select the new one’. The prompts on the utility screen read:

Profile name: Default
Operating mode: infrastructure
Channel = 3 (greyed out)
Tx Rate = Auto
MAC address = 00-30-BD-D2-BF-06
status = scanning

There is no signal strength or link quality. I click on the site survey tab and there is nothing listed. I click rescan and still nothing. The green link LED on the card is flashing. The WLAN light on the router is solid green.

On my PC web browser I go to to access the router set up utility.

I've had wireless on this pc before. A while back, we had a tech come out from out internet provider to fix a few things, and we told him we already have a few other devices on our wireless network, so it may be a better idea to connect through an ether-net cord to our main pc for a more secure connection.

That has worked fine for the most part, but now there's a different problem, and I think I need to be able to connect wireless in order to fix it.
If it matters, the problem is, that any game I try to patch via the game launcher, times-out.
I actually spoke with a CSR from Square Enix, he said it may have to do with the port-forwarding, then I spoke with a rep in technical support from our local provider, and she said there is no port forwarding through the(ir) ether-net but it is available through wireless.

So, that's essential what has brought me here.
I'll upload a couple of pics, so you can actually see that:
A: There is no wireless enabled on my pc at all and
B: There's no wireless driver - just the one on my driver list that, tbh, I don't know much about.

I've already tried uninstalling the driver then re-installing, (didn't detect anything).
I've tried power-cycling my modem.
I've messed around with every option in the "Network and Internet" settings in my control panel.
I've checked all around the outside of my pc, JUST IN CASE it's weird and has a switch somewhere that enables/disables wireless.
Just to confirm, yes, there is indeed... Read more

I have been having issues with my the Linksys Wireless card I installed in my Desktop computer for some time now. For some reason the connection just drops, but it still says I am connected. I leave a dos window open to watch as it happens by pinging the router. All of the sudden it will say "request timed out", but the icon shows that it's still connected to the wireless network.

I have tried just about everything to overcome this but nothing seems to work. Rebooting the router will allow it to work for a few minutes and then it times out again. Sometimes it will continue timing out, sometimes it will reconnect and sometimes it will says limited or no connection. Sometimes hitting repair will do the same thing...make it work for a few moments and they down again.

I have 4 other devices that connect to that router wirelessly and they have no issues at all, so I'm not prepared to blame the router. I noticed that my desktop's event view shows this entry frequently:

“The system detected that network adapter” Linksys...PCI Adapter – “Packet Scheduler Miniport was connected to the network, and has initiated normal operation over the network adapter”.

Would seeing this event frequently not indicate that the card was dropping often and coming back up?

I'm pretty much ready to run a 50' ethernet cable to the computer, but I thought I'd check with you guys first before I completely give up on the wireless card.

Hello, Basically I want to find a way to use my Alltell wireless USB modem card to provide Internet access to 2 computers. We have a cradelpoint router that accepts a USB wireless card but we do not want to use this router because we live in a very rural area and the router makes slow internet speeds even slower and with the router we loose the internet connection frequently and have to disconnect then reconnect at least once a night.

We want to set this up but do not know how, can you help?:
1. Plug the wireless usb card into one of the computers and have that computer then connect to a switch or hub so all the other computers can communicate with it. Then enable Internet Connection Sharing on the computer with the Altell card. This will basically turn the computer into a NAT server which will allow it to communicate with all the other computers with internal IP addresses and translate requests/responses to the Internet.

Do I have to buy a switch or hub? how do I add the IP address in - I am lost in trying to set this up!!

A:Using an AllTell wireless card to make a wireless network?

Here are details if the computer with the mobile wireless card is running a Windows OS: Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

Unless the router is defective or you are not positioning it well I can't think of any reason why it would slow the not-very-fast wireless connection. What do you get with something like speedtest.net with the card in a computer and what do you get using the router with only that same computer connected to it?

A hub is half duplex so can slow a network with multiple computers the same way Wi-Fi does, so best to use a switch. If the router you have has enough ports to connect all your computers you can use it as a switch.

I migrated my installation from my laptop so save reinstalling a million apps again. All went as well as can be expected.

One thing I haven't been able to sort is that I have the "airplane" icon in the notification area and my desktop doesn't actually have a wireless card. If I move the mouse over the icon I get a message "wireless communications turned off".

Is it possible to change this back to the standard network icon?

I recently purchased a used laptop from a local school district and I have been trying to access the wireless internet connection I have at home - but I can't.

It can connect to the internet through the ethernet cable. It came with "IBM Access Connections", a connections managing program that lets me switch between the default "USD XXX Wireless" network (The school district's default wireless connection), "Out of District" (also came when I bought the computer) and "My House", the network I created to connect the laptop to the internet at home (that I'm forced to use an ethernet cable with).

In the Control Panel, an icon "Wireless LAN Settings" is available, that gives me the message "Unable to Connect to the Wireless NetCard. Is it inserted?".

All of these clues of wireless connections that once were lead me to believe that the 'NetCard' that allows for wireless connections was removed before the laptop was given to me. Is there somewhere I can check to see if this hardware exists or is configured correctly?

I just upgraded my home network with wireless N.
USB wireless adapter is dlink DWA-130C, driver installed properly and windows 7 32bit detected it correctly as DWA-130C on device manager but it could not find any network in my area.
When I do troubleshoot, windows tell me that driver may not installed properly.
FYI it happened with my older G USB adapter too, when I uninstall the driver to update, it installed normally but then it does not detect any network. I have to do system restore to make it work again.
Any idea?

Hi all,

This is somewhat embarrassing. I have an Acer Aspire 5044WLMi laptop with built-in 802.11g wireless LAN capability. "Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter" is the name.

However, I keep getting the "No wireless network were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on." error message.

I'm *pretty sure* that the "wireless switch" is the button between the bluetooth and the microphone input jack on the side of my laptop that is closest to me (south side).

It's a really long shot, but can anyone tell me what's going on? Am I missing something really obvious here? I've tried googling but to no avail. I've also tried disabling/re-enabling the connection.. again to no avail.

Any help/ideas is appreciated.

I'm having big problems with my PC (running vista ultimate 64) detecting any available network. I'm having to use my second PC which is XP to
connect to the network to write this and having splashed out on a uber machine to play online thats pozzing me off.
Heres the story so far. In my old house I had both my PCs (XP-pro and Vista64 ultimate) connecting to my wireless network without problem.
Moved to a new house and the ISP provider sent me a new WIFI gateway (netopia 2247nwg, which is the same model as my old one) and therefore a new network to set up.
Set up my Xp PC with the SSID and WPA pass and it connects no problem. Yet my vista PC refuses to see any available networks, even if I power-up
the old router (which it used to detect and connect to).
Meanwhile trusty Xp detects both gateways.
In device manager my PCI WLAN adapter is showing as working 'it is a buffalo 802.11g using the broadcom chip'. As I could not get the cards drivers
to work with vista 64 (as there are no 64bit drivers available by buffalo) it defalted to the windows generic drivers that came with the vista installation
disc. It worked with these drivers at my previous house for over a year.
I've trawled the web for more time than I care to sacrifice and there are similar cases of vista not detecting networks but no solutions that have
helped me.

A:Vista 64 cant detect my wireless network

You know, Ive been battling with a wireless network connection in Vista x86 and x64 for 2 years now. I am using a Netgear WG111v2 USB adaptor, which I know is a bit older.. But I get constant drops, and 50% of those drops from the network result in the inabillity to find a network connection.

The adaptor only connects to the network when plugged in one specific USB port, the other ones result in finding the network but being unable to connect.

Very frustrating. I could just upgrade my adaptor, I hear USB ones are not that great to use, but if anyone has any information on this as well Id appreciate it..

Hey there, I just moved into a new apartment and I bought a usb wireless adapter so I could make use of the virgin media broadband. I've only ever used the internet on this computer via my ethernet connection.

I installed the network adapter with no problem (using the CD included in the box) and it appears in my device manager and is working correctly. However, when I look look at the available networks I can only find BT Openzone (it's a pay as you go service, I'm using it now to try and fix this ), and some random BTHomeHub. I should be able to see a lot more, including my Virgin Media network, but I can't.

It was the best 'Dongle'[?] in the store, so I'm guessing it's not an issue of proximity. I'm also certain that the network should be publicly visable. I'd be grateful if someone could suggest some possible fixes. I'll provide any further information you require.
Some things you will need to know:
OS: Windows XP PRO SP3
ISP: Virgin Media
USB Wireless adapter: Belkin Play dual-band N600 F7D4101
I have used Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and it does not detect any networks other than the two I've mentioned.

A:How to detect Proxy in wireless network

Read other 11 answers

Hi guys!

Today I bought a Belkin Wireless G Router to share my cable connection with my sister's laptop. I setup the router perfectly and she can detect and use the wireless connection!

My problem is that I want to use the wireless connection on my laptop too, and it won't detect it. It is really strange because we have both laptops side by side and we can detect our neighbours connections, but my laptop refuses to "find" the one I setup.

I've tried disabling WZC and using the software from Intel (my wireless adapter), but it wont work!

Could someone give me a hand!
Thanks in advance

A:Unable to detect wireless network

Read other 10 answers

Can someone tell me why I can't detect my usual Wireless network. I can see other secured networks. When I go into the properties of the wireless network I can see the network name and all the details which are saved, but it is not recognizing it as available.

There is no problem with the router/network itself as 3 other computers in the house can see it. And yes, the wireless button is turned on.

A:Can't detect my usual wireless network

Not much we can tell you from here... You may have a hardware failure, or an infestation, or a software error.
First thing I would do is remove, reboot, and reinstall your connection... on what may be a long road to recovery.

In a house with 2 pc's and 3 laptops.

All are working fine expcept for one laptop.

It was happily connected to the wireless network one day and then the next it wouldn't detect the wireless network, even though it was sitting next to the router. Tried viewing wireless networks, refreshing network list etc.

It will work fine if it is connected by a wire to the router, and is picking up our neighbours networks. Just not ours!

It works on Windows XP.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hello guys

When i bought my laptob it was without any operating system to save some money, because i had my own windows 7 32 bit. I installed it and everything worked, except that the laptop could not detect any wireless network adapter. Luckily i had a friend who's brother could help me. Unfortunately i do not know how or what he did, but some how he managed to make it work.

But a few months later i wanted to upgrade my 32 bit to 64, since i could only use ,4 GB ram,So i bought a win 7 ultimate 64 bit and installed it. Now i face the same problem, my laptop can not detect any wireless network adapter,

I hope you guys can help me, because this is really freaking me out. specially because this is my office laptop and without any internet acces i can't participate in office works.

Hi have you gone to hp support and download and install the wireless driver?

I've tried searching and searching for solutions but I can't find any. Okay, here's my problem. My laptop can't detect any wireless network but I'm sure the router is working well because my PSP can connect to it. Also, when I plug in my Wireless USB adapter, I can easily get a signal. I think last week it was working right. I installed my "wireless USB adapter" 2 days ago then I checked my wireless adapter, poof.. I can't connect anymore. But the USB adapter works well, that's what I'm using sometimes instead of my built-in wireless card (RaLink RT2561/RT2661 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN).

My laptop is Advent 7302. You can see the full specs here - http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/laptop/7302.htm

I uninstalled my wireless card and reinstalled it. I even downloaded the lastest driver from Ralink.

- Router's SSID is broadcasting.
- Wireless adapter is enabled.
- I tried to disable AVG's firewall, still no good. (I can connect with my USB adapter even if it is enabled).
- Installed the lastest driver of my netword card.
- Network card is turned on.

I didn't make any changes at all. I just installed my USB wireless adapter.

Btw, when I open Ralink Config Utility, I can switch to AP mode. I don't know what does it do though so I assume my network card is still good.

Here's my IPCONFIG /ALL (up to wireless adapter only)

I have an Acer Aspire D255e running Windows 7 Home Premium edition 32bit. I upgraded the memory to 2 GB to handle the Samsung Allshare streaming software. I have a Samsung LED TV with the wireless dongle (Samsung brand) that connects it to my Belkin 594 router. Plug and play are enabled on both the router and the TV so connecting the TV to the network was easy. I was able to start using Netflix immediately.

When I go to Add a Device in the control panel my netbook can't detect the TV. It never appears on a list of devices that can be added. When I go to the Network and Sharing Center and look at my full network map I see an icon for the TV shown below

When I mouse over the PC icon I see both an IP address and a MAC address for the device. For the TV there is only a MAC address; there is no IP address listed.

It seems like the Windows 7 network did detect the TV to an extent because it's on the network map, but not completely because it can't be detected by the add device utility. None of my digging around the web has given me any clue why the device can't be detected and added, expecially if plug and play worked to allow me to connect to the Internet and watch Netflicks, and I can see the device with its Mac address on my network map.

Does anyone have any ideas about how to force the network to detect and add the TV?

A:Network can't detect wireless Samsung TV

Hiya pal, and welcome to the forums
Try setting the IP address manually on the samsung TV

ip address 192.168.x.x (same range as you network)
gateway 192.168.x.x (router IP)

dns 192.168.x.x (router IP)

Hope this helps

My building has a free wifi service. There are routers on each floor. My computer has built in wireless lan. It will recognize signals from those who have installed ATT's 2wire system, but not a single signal from and othe routers in the building. I am now using a usb wifi adapter which has detected all the signals. I have reinstalled the drivers and tried to connect the wireless lan but it has been unsuccessful. The windows connection software will not work. It seems strange to be able to detect the ATT connections but not any of the buildings signals.

Hey I have a laptop that just got given to me and the internet is working through the Ethernet cable but is not through the wifi connection. I know that the router is working (I have my phone hooked up) I checked the drivers and updated them, uninstalled the adapter and let it be put back on its self. I have rolled back the drivers and updated it. I have tried a system restore point also. The laptop has connected to the internet through wifi before.. Still a red "X".

1 week ago, my HP desktop decided that it couldn't find the wireless connection anymore. I didn't install anything new. I may have defragmented the system around that time. I did the trouble shoot and the wired connection works fine with the ethernet cable. Also other computers in the house can connect to the wireless router no problem.
Under Manage wireless networks, when I try to add a network it tells me "windows cannot detect any wireless network interfaces"
Not sure what else to try.
Under Network adaptors, I see Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller, it says the device is working properly and I have also updated the driver. Any other thoughts on why it shut off suddenly? Did I somehow delete the wireless adaptor or is the Realtek adaptor for wireless as well.
Thank you.

We have a wireless home network and there are four different computers that can pick up the signal and use the internet no problem, including two laptops, a tower PC and an iPhone.

There is a third laptop that will not pick up the router signal (a Thomson TG585 v7). It connects fine when connected to the router via cable, but won't detect the wireless signal. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite running XP Home SP2.

The really weird thing is that the laptop can pick up every other wireless connection in the street. Any ideas why it won't pick up this one? I've done several searches across the web and can't find an issue of this kind or compatibility issues between the router and the machine. Any idea what's going on?

Wonder if anyone can help me?
I have just moved house and been given the internet details by the landlord.
The provider is Virgin and the landlord asked for my MAC addresses of each device to allow access to the internet and gave me the password.
I managed to connect on my iPhone and my housemate who is also running windows 7 off a laptop can also connect.
However the network does not even appear in my wireless list. Several other wireless networks in the area are being detected but not the one in the house. I know it's not hidden as I can connect on other devices.
I have tried a manual setup with the network name, encription etc and tick "allow connection even when network is hidden" but all to no avail.
Unfortunately I have no access to the router as the landlord has that next door, however seems strange it would be a router issue if the other devices connect fine.
I have been through all the settings with my housemate and ensured we have the same setup and am now thoroughly baffled and annoyed.
Anyone have similar issues and resolve them, or know enough about such things to help?


A:Cannot detect one particular wireless network, others detecting fine

Make sure your landlord entered the MAC address correctly. Go over it with him again. Also, make sure you are recording the correct number. I've made mistakes in the past and recorded the incorrect number. From a command prompt, type; ipconfig /all
Look for the wireless adapters physical address.
I once wrote down the "ethernet" adapter's address and then spent hours trying to figure out why I couldn't connect.

Hi! I am sorry if I have mistaken the topic!
I installed windows 7 ultimate x64 on my Asus x555ld-xx142d today. I was aware from the start of how difficult it will be to find the right drivers since the laptop is made to run on a windows 8.1 operating system. After hours of trying, I think I have made a big mess because almost everything seems to be working fine besides the WiFi. There is no WiFi icon in the systray and when I try to configure it, I get the message "Windows cannot detect any wireless network interfaces". PLUS, my desktop brightness is changing per minute by itself from low luminosity to bright.

Here are some attachments that I think might give you an idea about the problem:

I would really appreciate your help.Thanks!

I've got an X55, running 10TP on it.
BUT it was sold like yours as W8,
However it was originally setup by Asus as W7, and moved to 8 by them.

ALL of the drivers are available via asus support/drivers.

My wireless card in my Compaq Presario works fine and Windows 8 detects it and said it was compatible. For some strange reason though it's not working in Windows 8. It hasn't detected my wireless network. Currently I am connecting using a cable.
The card is Qualcomm Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WIFI Adaptor.

I am trying to do a Google search on this issue, is it me but is this device not compatible with Windows 8 despite Window 8 saying so? I have updated the drivers through Windows Update, but it still can't find my Wireless network even though Windows 7 did originally before my upgrade.

I'm hoping you guys can help...

I upgraded my mobo, cpu, ram and video card today. I kept my HDD, optical drives, and my wireless adapter (Edimax EW-7128g)

In my zeal to install my new components I had forgotten to uninstall the drivers of the edimax, which I was going to keep, and my old ATI radeon, which I was replacing.

After installing the new components, every thing started up fine, except the edimax wireless adapter would refuse to connect, or even detect any wireless networks. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers countless times, swapped the wireless card around in the different pci slots, but still came up with the same problem.

I noticed that when I checked the network adapters in control panel, it would keep calling the Edimax "wireless adapter (2)" or "wireless adapter (3)" depending on which pci slot I put it in. I would try renaming it to simply "wireless adapter" but it would state that an adapter by that name already exists. I'm guessing this is some holdover from being connected to the old motherboard.

In short, new mobo recognizes the card, latest drivers for windows 7 are installed, but windows keeps telling me there's an error with the drivers, and every time I try and search for wireless connections, it won't even search...it will just say "no connections available." Was this whole issue precipitated by forgetting to uninstall the drivers and the card itself before upgrading my mobo?
