Laptop won't detect wireless connection (but does detect others)

I am working on a computer with a WirelessLAN PRISM3 IEEE802.11b WM168 installed. I recently reinstalled Windows - prior to this reinstall the wireless connection worked fine. Now, it is only picking up certain connections. My home is close to a school so I can get their wireless signal - this computer will detect it and work fine. However, the wireless in my home is not detected by the computer (Airlink 101 802.11G wireless router tried without security as well as with wep). There are several other laptops in the home that all detect my home connection without any problems. Please help!

    Wireless does not connect to main computer. The indicator light flashes rapidly all the time.



    Done all you have suggested, the only new thing we have done is insert a new optic drive

    Same problem. I re installed the driver, but it didn't help. So... it's a good thing I'm still under warranty.

I have wireless Internet! I have a laptop, I tried to connect to it~ It will connect to the router, but won't connect to the Internet! Help!


How many wired and wireless computers do you have ion the network.
Do you have any wired computer ?
Connect your laptop to the router with the Ethernet cable and try to access Internet. See if the wired connection is working or not.
If the wired connection is working then I think you will need to check the wireless settings of the router and the laptop.

Try following websites

I had to put my computer back to factory settings and now my Belkin wont go on wireless.It does work if i plug cable in.Is there anything i can do?


HI,
I see you set Windows back to defaults as you mentioned and now your Router will not go Wireless.
First Restoring Windows Back to Factory Defaults will not reset your Routers Settings to Defaults together with Windows.
So Most Probably the issue is since you restored windows back to factory defaults you may need to install the Wireless Driver again on the Machine / Computer to make your computers wireless card work again and be able to detect and connect to your Belkin Router.
try a difefernt device that can connect wireless to your Router or maybe a different Laptop to see if the Belkin is working fine wireless.
If any other Laptop will not detect the Belkin then try turning the Wireless Radio ON again in the Router Settings of Belkin.
But I suggest to check all your system drivers if installed for it to be wireless capable again on the issue, Restoring Windows back to Default will not change anything in the Belkin Router. I believe this is a Driver issue on the Wireless card of your Computer.
You mentioned the system does work if plugged in Wired right, check your drivers install every driver that needs to be installed from the Manufacturer Website of your Computer for proper and compatible drivers.
Have a nice day.

I've spoken to who provides my wireless network and they insist that my Dell laptop is the problem for not being able to connect. I really dont know much about what they were saying but what they had...


If your using a router to get wireless from a DSL connection and your laptop isn't detecting the signal it is most commonly the wireless card in the computer, hence their response. If you can access the router to check what channel it is transmitting on you may be able to change that to resolve the issue. On my cisco router it transmitted on channel 6 by default and my laptops wouldn't detect it, I changed it to transmit on channel 5 and the laptops work fine. I assume they checked if your router was compatible with your computer so I won't go into the type G wireless vs Type B or N wireless. The uninstall/install process they recommended is not hard and shouldn't hurt anything if you do that. On Vista Open Control Panel->System->Device Manager then go down the list of devices to Network Devices and select your wireless adapter and right click, from that drop menu select uninstall and close everything and reboot the computer. When the computer starts up again it will automatically detect the wireless card and reinstall the drivers from the windows system copy. Make sure the wireless device is actually manually turned on before doing any of these steps. Once the device is installed again you should be able to detect the wireless signal from the router they supplied. If not there is one more place to look in the router itself unless you are familiar with router settings I don't recommend you do these though. If you still don't detect the router signal call your supplier back and have them go through the router connections with you and when they say it's your computer you can tell them it works fine with others and you removed and installed the device as they advised and the fault is in their router.

Wireless card works, but can't get the computer but nothing no connection no internet


You can try this site:
http://www.z-cyber.net/WirelessLAN%20PCMCIA.htm

Your card is actually a BritePort™ Wireless LAN PCMCIA Card 2020, which was marketed by Creative. It's made by Broadxent, which is a British company. Either write to Creative tech support and ask for the driver, or contact Broadxent.
