Question about PC Desktops
Ok if your wireless card appears to be installed and working but all you get is an empty list of networks every time you search for available networks then chances are the windows wireless service is not running.. to fix this try the following:
"Right click" on "my computer" icon and select "manage" from the drop down menu
Then when the management console appears click "services and applications" on the left pane
Then in the right pane "double click" the word "services" to show the list of services running on your computer.
Then scroll down to the bottom of the list and usually about the third from the bottom you will see a service called "wireless zero Config"
You need to make sure it says "started" in the "status" column if it does not then "right click" on it and select "start" from the drop down menu
If the service says started and you are still getting an empty list then let me know and i will help you with the next step in solving it but usually 9 times out of 10 that is the issue
I hope this info helps
