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."

Based on the specs I looked up. The laptop does not come suppied with a wireless network interface.
These are the specs based on the limited part number given.
You will have to get and install the PCIe mini card / Wifi controller.
Wireless LAN Support a full-height PCIe mini card (MS-6894 and MS-6890 applied here)
You can also find many good USB WIFI adapters that will also work.
A Local Area Connection, or LAN, is generally a small home or office network used to link all the devices in the area. With the advent of wireless technologies, LAN networks are no longer limited to the amount of cords you own. Laptops can connect to wireless LAN easily with their built in wireless adapters. Connecting two laptops together over wireless LAN is also easy, but requires a few special steps to give the laptops access to each other.
1Connect both laptops to the wireless network you wish to use. Once connected, click the "Start" button and navigate to the "Network" menu.
2.Click the "Network and Sharing Center" link. Press the "View Computers and Devices" button. A list of devices currently on the network is displayed.
3.Check the list for the names of both laptops. If both laptops are displayed in the list of devices connected to the network, the devices are connected wirelessly to a LAN network.
this works exactly as like a built in LAN adapter to your laptop. You may use this as a backup for your built in laptop LAN adapter. Altough this is more useful for some IT professionals who sometimes require a two LAN setup. I have also attached a useful guide that if found on the product catalogue itself.
WHAT THIS PRODUCT DOES Connect to your wired home network by adding a D-Link 10/100 Fast Ethernet Notebook Adapter to your notebook computer. Once connected, you can access shared documents, music, and photos from other computers in your network. If your network has a high-speed Internet connection, you can also check e-mail, browse the web, and chat with friends and family online.
If you go to the control panel in the start menu, check the network connections. It may be a LAN connection or another wireless connection that is not connected. You can disable them by right clicking on them. If you are able to get on the internet then you are ok. Let me know. Please give good rating...
Just connect the lan cable from the modem port saying "DataIn" to your laptop, select Automaticaly detect IP setting and let it assign via DHCP. Once it gains the ip (usually 3-4 minutes) use any java enabled browser (like ie,mozilla firefox) and go to any site it will automatically redirect you to Tata Indicom login terminal and fill in the required blanks and you are connected to the internet.
1) activate your WLAN : Press and hold the Fn button, and then press the F11 button repeatedly to enable or disable the Wireless LAN or Bluetooth function recurrently. 2) Check if "Wireless LAN LED indicator glows green when Wireless LAN function is enabled." 3 ) Use Windows to configure your Wlan.
