MSI wireless 802.11 LAN network connection not connecting
I have an MSI notebook with a 802.11 wireless network adapter which is not connecting to the wireless network.
The hard wired conection works fine. However when I try to repair or connect to the wireless network it can not find any wireless connections at all....usually it comes up with all the ones in range.
I have reinstalled the wireless driver and also have run a driver detective scan which hasn't come up with a faulty driver.
Please could you help with a solution.

Solution from another user..
"you may have another wireless connection other than your own set as automatic, or more than one connection in your settings of the same name, so right click on your network icon in your task bar or in network connections in device manager and select view all wireless connections, click on it and when all the connections show, highlght, delete all of them, then close the window.
Your notebook should now indicate that it found new wireless connections, click on the popup and select your connection name and click connect, at this point you will be asked to enter the passkey if you have security enabled."

Usually ordinary desktops doesn't have the capability to connect to a WLAN Network because there won't be any WiFi antenna embedded on the motherboard.But in the case of laptops for the ease of use of network services wherever you go they come fitted with WiFi antenna and hence can connect to a wireless LAN network by the flip of a switch.Connecting to a Wireless LAN network has nothing to do with OS because it is a Hardware feature.Please don't forget to rate me if satisfied with my solution.Thanks for choosing Fixya.
