Windows XP Not Showing Available Wireless Networks?

Dec 29, 2012

Windows XP on an older Dell Latitude. All wireless settings appear to be on, yet "no wireless networks are found in range" All other devices in the house see the same 3 networks (mine, mifi, and next door), so this is specific to this machine.

Also, I normally keep this laptop docked, 95% of the time, and earlier in the week disabled the wireless (right click on icon, disable) as I normally do when connected to the dock, since it seems to perform faster (no testing, just my opinion)

Other factors: The computer got undocked without normal undock procedure taking place.

Don't know if this is related, but the sound wasn't working either the last few days I have redocked, rebooted, restarted, checked every possible config I can think of, checked the router to be sure that my device was still listed, etc.

Wireless Networks Not Showing Up

Mar 22, 2011

I've just installed windows xp pro sp 3 on my laptop and am going through installing the drivers for the problem devices. I've got everything installed minus the drivers for the sound card. I'm trying to connect to my wireless network and am not having much luck. I know the network is available because i'm on it right now sending this message. However with this new installation everytime i refresh i'm getting the "No wireless networks were found in range" message. I'm also not getting any yellow question marks in the device manager window for this device. I know the card works because it worked just fine with ubuntu before i wiped the hdd and installed xp ....

Computer Not Showing Wireless Networks?

Oct 30, 2011

I had a wireless network set up between my Dell D630 and a Del XPS M1210 with IS and worked fine. Then we sold the XPS and got a E4300. I set up a wireless network on it with IS and it also worked fine. Both laptops running XP. The E4300 has SP3 and the D630 was set up with SP2 but I upgraded to SP3. The network was difficult to connect at times so I had to bypass the firewall to connect. Once connected, IS worked fineHowever, latetly it refused wireless connection even though the connection was visible. I have now tried to set up a new wireless between the 2 but it doesn't even show when I refresh the wireless connections in range.

D-Link DIR 635 Not Showing Up In List Of Networks?

Jan 25, 2011

I have problems with my D-Link DIR 635 router. It shows up fine in list of networks on my girlfriends Mac and on my new laptop, but on my older laptop it doesnt show up at all (whereas a lot of other networks do). Seeing as my current laptop is being repaired at the moment, I need to be able to connect to the net with my old laptop too.

I run Windows XP Professional on my laptop, which is a Compaq Presario f700. why the network doesnt show up?

Wireless Network Not Showing On IBM Thinkpad Running Windows XP?

Aug 12, 2012

I've come across an older IBM ThinkPad 2687 via work that was just collecting dust, and it was able to connect to a wireless network.Due to other issues with the machine, I had to do a complete refresh on it, so it only had the XP OS.

I had to update the drivers to make sure other things like connecting to a flash drive, and connecting to a local area was possible, which is how I'm able to connect now.However, I've been unable to access the wireless connection within Network connections. I've downloaded the different drivers from the Lenovo IBM ThinkPad website, but still no luck.

Windows 7 Can See Wireless Networks But Can't Connect

Jul 19, 2012

I'm using Windows 7, and when I lived at my house I was able to connect to wireless networks without a problem. I just moved today into my brother's old apartment and for some reason I can't connect to his wireless network. I can see it along with a number of other wireless networks, but I'm unable to connect to any of them. When I attempt to connect to a network absolutely nothing happens. Typically at the bottom right corner of my screen something will pop up saying it's trying to connect, but for some reason that isn't popping up. I know it's not a problem with the router because I'm unable to connect to any of the networks, and I also had no trouble when I tried to connect to it with my laptop.

Windows Vista - Unhide Available Wireless Networks?

Jan 17, 2012

I am using Windows Vista.I work in a small office and our old computer guy set up our network. Not sure why, but he "hid" the two available wireless networks so they do not show up as available. How do I go about "unhiding" them? He left a folder on my computer that says "main router config" but it is a .bin file and I cannot open it. I did find out what our IP address is, but when I type it in the URL it does not show up.

Windows 7 - Can't Detect Any Wireless Networks / Restored To Factory Settings

Sep 20, 2012

A few hours ago, I just restored my laptop to factory settings. Once it was done, I tried connecting to the internet but the computer could not detect ANY wireless networks!I already know it is not the modem or router because I have a Macbook Pro and two HP laptops that connect perfectly fine to the modem. I also made sure the wireless is on. The laptop with the problem is a Toshiba Satellite l645. It's running on a 64-bit Windows 7. When I try to look up wireless networks, it only shows 'MOBILE BROADBAND CONNECTION".

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WMP54GS / Windows Cannot Find Any Additional Networks

Apr 22, 2009

So I recently took the WMP54GS ver 1.1 wireless adapter out of my old XP computer and put it in my new Vista 64bit computer.  I successfully installed the adapter, downloaded the drivers (WMP54GS-v1.1_v4.102.15.53_Vista_dr), and unzipped them on my C drive to their Linksys Driver folder.  When I go to find available networks it says "Windows cannot find any additional networks," and when I try to set up a wireless network it shows a blank window and says "an unexpected error has occurred."  I can see the adapter in the device manager, so it obviously installed correctly.

XP Computer Showing Up Twice In Windows 7 Network Map?

Aug 15, 2012

Have an older laptop running XP Home, Desktop running XP Pro with printer on it. Wireless network setup and doing fine for bidirectional file share and print share from old lappie to desktop. All worked great.Bought a brand new high end laptop with Win 7 (not impressed). Finally got the Win 7 new one to recognize both older computers on the Win 7 computer and was able to access file share and print on the desktop. Thought I was doneNope, now while I can see the old lappie and it can see it in the Win7 computer both directions give me cannot access the drive or specific files even though it "sees" themAll files and disks are set to full share. No password is required or any homegroup is setup on the win 7 system. I've been in the bus. a long time so you know I'm at the end of the rope. All searches through knowledge base and the web have yielded no results to this.I did find an absolute to this in insuring that both systems have the same workgroup. Changed the old lappie to the right name. Made no difference in access (after several reboots). Obviously can't run Easy Transfer with this situation.

Now problem #2. I changed the old lappies workgroup to the same as the Win7 computer in the hopes of fixing this. Made no difference but now I have two iterations my XP laptop in the Win 7 system.When selected, the info for one has the old workgroup and selecting the other shows the new workgroup (matching the Win7 workgroup).Anyway, throwing up my hands in frustration and disgust. Find no way to even dump the old workgroup map listing. Jeez. Sure glad they (M/S) made this better?

Windows Server 2003 - 2 NIC's Not Showing Up Under Network Connections?

Sep 5, 2012

So I just installed Windows Server 2003 64 bit on an older HP Proliant DL360 G5 and am trying to connect it to my network but neither of the 2 NIC's are showing up under Network Connections... the only option I am given is the ''Add Network Places Wizard''.

I have an ethernet cable plugged into NIC 1 and the LED's work so I know it's not a bad NIC card- do I have to download drivers for the NIC? Do I download them to a USB/CD and then just boot from that?

I can't get the connection to work between my laptop (Windows 7) and my Xbox360. I am on a college-based connection as I am away at school. I can't find the router IP or how to even go about finding it. What I've tried:

- Bridge-ing the connections, no success.

- Upgrading the drivers on the ethernet side, no success.

- Enabling "Internet Connections with ICS", no success.

How To Connect To 2 Networks On Windows 7

Oct 31, 2011

I use multiple computers in my house, I was just wondering, how would I go about connecting to 2 different networks on Windows 7 simultaneously?I have a router/modem downstairs which is connected to the internet & all of our computers, and I also have a modem/router in my bedroom that isn't connected to the internet, but I'd like to use it to share files and other things throughout my house.I've quite easily managed to connect to both networks at the same time, but as soon I connect to the wired network (the one without internet connection) I lose connection to the internet, even though I'm still connected to the wireless network which is connected to the internet.I've read a few different articles and posts about this same issue, but I can't find how to be connected to both & still have a connection.

Dell Inspiron 1545 Upgraded To Windows 7 - SSID Not Showing Up?

Apr 9, 2012

I recently upgraded a relatives Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop from Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit! To Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit. Previously this was connected wireless to a netgear router. On upgrading the OS i have found that the previous network is no longer showing up in the list of avalible networks even though a number of other devices can still connect and see the broacast of the SSID. As other networks are showing up and the laptop can succesfully connect to others I dont see this as being a driver issue. I have checked the router configuration for broadcast of SSID and MAC filtering. My next step will be to connect the router and laptop via ethernet.
