The wireless adapter may be working in that the computer can see it and communicate with it but that doesn't mean it's transmit and receive functions are working. If you're withing 20 feet of a network device and can't get a signal, something is wrong with the device.

If your computer has a wireless network adapter, Windows will automatically detect wireless networks in range of your computer. You can see a list of wireless networks that Windows has detected in Connect to a Network.

  • Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc_73.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3_80.jpg) in the notification area.

If Windows doesn't detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one of the following reasons:

  • The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.

    Many laptops have a wireless switch on the front or side of the computer. If your computer has a switch, make sure it's turned on. Some computers also use a function key combination to turn the switch on or off. Check the information that came with your computer for details on locating the wireless switch.

  • Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.

    Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If the computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer.

    If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than a built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna.

  • The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly.

    There are two things to try:

    • Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated.

    • Reset the router or access point by unplugging it, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in.

What wireless router works with mitsubishi 838 series


I Belive the 838 does not have a built in wireless card you need to by a wireless adapter that plugs into your tv usb port(Mitsubishi AzureWave AW-NU231 Wireless Adapter). Which can be ordered online from tiger direct or other online retailers. Just plug in the adapter and the tv should run a guided setup.Then all you need to do is press the Internet button on your TV remote. But any wireless router will link up to your tv. If you have a wireless router you do not have to go out and another yours should work. If your network is in close proximity to your tv you can run ethernet cable to your tv insted of going wireless.

Cannot link to wireless thompsoncontrollerinternet


it maybe a firewall blocking access or the secruity code 1) disable the firewall and see if it now connects 2) log into the router and goto the wireless section and remove the secruity now see if that will connect a useful tool to use, if you can copy onto the PC, http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php this will detect all the networks broadcasting - so you can now see if the adapter will detect your wireless network

I have a linksys wireless usb card and it is not detecting my secured wireless network after configuring it


We need to know the wireless settings on your wireless access-point/router.

Check if the SSID broadcast is enabled on the wireless access-point. If it is disabled, then you have to manually add the SSID to the wireless adapter and make sure the wireless security such as WEP or WPA keys are correct.

You may also enable SSID broadcast so that the wireless adapter will detect your wireless network.

Also, you may try to change the wireless channel to 6 or 11.

Wireless card not detecting!!!!


I had simalar problems where I could not detect my wireless network even though I could get on the internet I could not see the other computer on my network. I finally after trying everyone else's advice which did not work, found a program called Network Magic. You can purchase it from www.purenetworks.com for $30.00. It took care of all of my network problems and even shows a nice map of how my network is setup and what computers are logged onto the network and even what software like Windows Xp or Windows Vista is on that computer. It will even generate daily logs if you want to show any problems with the network.

Not detecting any wireless networks


You have not mentioned having a wireless router or access point to serve as the hub on an infrastructure network. I you have a router please let me know -- the instructions for the solution changes.

The following is an article to create an ad hoc network between wireless cards without a wireless access point or a router. If you ignore the steps about connecting to the internet with a wired connection and the internet sharing instructions. This will allow your machines with wireless adapters to communicate with each other (assuming the operate on a common band). The article goes on to indicate one machine with a wired connection can act as the "router" for the other two when it is on to allow them share internet access with the wired machine (the wired machine also needs a wireless card for this to work).

Wi-fi problem


I went to the Proxim website (www.proxim.com) to see if I could find info on the card, but Proxim looks like they make you register before you can get any information.

You probably just need a Vista driver. Go to the Proxim site, register, and see if one is available.

Good luck.
