maybe theres a problem in the wireless network that you are connecting to, that why your computer detected no wireless connection in range if there no wireless network to connect to you will get this message there nothing wrong with the adapter or you are far away for the computer to pick up the signal its either way

Wireless network connection


if you system is secured, then she would not be able to connect to the internet via your rour router unless she has the password.

She won't be able to connect to your pc unless any folders are shared on the network.

Right click on the network icon in your task bar and click view wireless networks, then when all the networks show delete them all and close the window, next, a pop up will say found wirelss connections click the icon again and look for your connection in the list and click connect and enter the pass phrase
