    Yes! same problem and cannot find a way to fix it. computer works through direct lan connection but will suddenly not pick up any wifi signals. the pc is a packard bell which was working fine on home wifi from orange live box then suddenly cannot find a signal - usually picks up more than one. the wireless lan connection is crossed out. checked the ralink wireless status is on and supposedly working properly tried the normal repair but says it cannt see anything to connect to. Another computer can see the wireless signal. suspect it happened after putting the pc in standby??

Try this:

Right click on your wireless icon in the tray.

Left click on "repair". If there's nothing wrong with it, it won't hurt it. If it's gone stupid, it may fix it.

Left click on "status". This will tell you if your wireless actually has a connection. Without knowing the rest of your setup that's about as far as I can go for now. Good luck.

 don't follow you on "without plugging a usb" so I'm going to give you someadvice, if I'm wring or have the wrong machine, please correct me, before you rate me. 
I believe this machine has a built in wireless card. If so, then you need to follow the link below and download the wireless drivers for it. If the wireless drivers are already there, then you need to uninstall them and reboot the machine. The machine will find the wireless card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Many time this type of problem is a driver glitch, and this procedure will fix it. If it doesn't have an internal wireless card installed in it, it does have the slot and you can purchase one to go in it. Here's the link for the Inspiron B130 wireless drivers. You'll find the wireless drivers in the network section, and you may have to try more than one if you don't know the make and model of the wireless card.

Notebook won't connect wifi


Hi, assuming your laptop is switched on.
Above the keyboard on the right side are the three 'Easy buttons'. The one on the left is for the wireless function.

Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.

I have an acer aspire one laptop that will not connect to internet thru wireless connection. System shows that wireless connection strength is excellent but internet explorer cannot display webpage. ...


1.- Try to find the wireless card switch (or button). Look the wireless led indicator, must be on.
You should surf if the led is on.

2.- If not works, go to device manager and look to your wireless device and turn the switch on and
off again. Look if the device is accepted without any sign. If the device get any sign then you
have problem with your wireless driver. If no sign. Open My Computer and then open networks
or my network places, and try to access to any other computer you have.

3.- If the device is ok in device manager and the led indicator is on and you can access other
computer thru network places, then open Internet explorer, go to tools, then go to internet
options, then go to connections and there click on Lan settings. In the proxy section uncheck
the box. Restart your Internet Explorer and it must surf now.

Good Luck and remember to rate my answer.
