FWIW I have had that problem on several wireless adapters. They would detect networks but never connect. Or sometimes they would connect but could never pull up any web pages. Something was wrong with the hardware. When an identical card was used with the affected computer everything worked correctly, so it was a defective adapter. You probably have a bad adapter.

Hi, If you re-installed the XP on the computer. You can check if the wireless adapter is recognized. Just follow the steps below:
  1. Click on start
  2. Right-click on My Computer and choose properties.
  3. redmatrix_12.jpgthen click on Hardware tab and then device manager.
  4. Next is on the device manager. look for other devices.redmatrix_13.jpgthis where the wireless is usually located, try to look for Other Devices on the list, and under it there should be Network controller. with a question mark. That indicated that the wireless is not yet installed.

No wireless network in range. My wireless network is set to automatic but I am getting the message above when I search for wireless networks. I know there are at least three here.


If you are so sure of three wireless networks in range then it could be the HW problem in the laptop. Is the green light indicating WiFi lighting on? May be your WiFi switch is non functional. So switch on the WiFi and then look for LAN. Login and not searching a LAN are two different problems. If you cant search the wire less LAN then how can you log into any. So it has to be HW problem as you cant locate any although there are three available. So start at the WiFI switch.

Need to find wireless security key in order to log on internet. Notebook is finding wireless network. However, I need a security code to be able to log on. Is there a way to find the surity code?


you cant find it without being connected to it.
is there another computer on the network that is working if so just get into the router and look under wireless or security and it will tell you the key.

to access the router on a wokring pc just goto start ....run......type "cmd" in the run text box and hit run it should bring up a command window that looks something like C:\documents and settings

type ipconfig and press enter

it should give you some info the default gateway is the router so if it says defualt gateway.......:192.168.1.1 then 192.168.1.1 is router

open internet explorer or other web browser and type http://192.168.1.1 or whatever the gateway ip is and hit enter and that should let you into router.

most default passwords on routers are admin/admin or admin with a blank pass or admin/password

Toshiba portege A600 notebook. wireless


unless you have a wireless router in your home; the msg "windows cannot find any wireless networks"

means any network in your area is too far away, or has a signal so weak your laptop is not picking it up as a viable source.

visit . www.filehippo.com and DL a file called Ccleaner. Run this program - it will clean all your internet caches and junk files, then run the registry cleaner. Reboot.
This can keep you from connecting.

Also try moving to different areas in your home and refreshing your wireless search.

if you are worried your wireless card may not be working properly, take it to a place like mcdonalds, or anywhere that has free wi-fi offered. if you still can not pick up a signal there you have narrowed it down to your wireless adapter.

you can also try this little program. Easy Wi-fi radar found here

I have a Toshiba laptop that won't connect to my home wireless system, after I took it to college and used the wireless system there


Does your laptop even see the network? If any security has been set up on your wireless router, you'll have to set up a new wireless connection on your computer. The easiest way to find the settings (SSID, encryption, password) is to look under the wireless network properties of a computer you already have running on the wireless network.
