My wireless network is no longer listed

I can't connect to my wireless router anymore. I tried refreshing the list of available networks, but that didn't work. I tried rebooting the router and the modem and refereshing list again. Nothing works. It's been fine for years. I don't know what happened to it. The router shows a blinking light for "WAN", a solid light for "ACT" and no light for "link".

    Thanks for your assistance, but I got it working. I ended up turning off the wireless router and hooking up direct to the modem for 24 hours. Then just for the hell of it, I decided to try the wireless again. It worked!! The "link" light is now blinking!!! Maybe the router needed some rest. Thanks for your quick responses. I love this website!

Ok there needs to be a few diagnostics first.

Can you still connect to to router with a wired connection?

If so, can you veiw the settings for the wirless network,, and are they the same as before?

If you cant connect with a wired connection i'd probably say the router needs replacing.

Please let me know if you can connect with a wire and if you can access the wireless settings?

I have a wireless connection but cannot open the browser. Another computer (laptop) is connecting fine on the same wireless.


If the Wireless Network Connection icon is at the bottom right of your Taskbar and has a red x, then right-click on the icon to bring up a pop-up window and in that window, left-click on View Available Wireless Networks. This will open a Wireless Network Connection window which will allow you to Choose a wireless network. If the window has the message "No wireless networks were found in range", then you will need to slide the spring-loaded switch at the right-front the netbook to the right momentarily and the message "Wireless LAN Enabled" should show in large green letters at the bottom of the screen. Then in the Wireless Network Connection window, left-click on "Refresh network list" item under Network Tasks. In about 10 seconds, a list of the wireless networks will be displayed which should include the name of your wireless access point (wireless router). Left-clicking on that list item will high-light it in blue. Now click on the connect button at the bottom-right of the window. If the list item has a lock symbol, a Wireless Network Connection pop-up will now show to ask you to "Type the key" otherwise for an unsecured or open access point, a connection should automatically occur without having to type any key. The Wireless Network Connection icon in the Taskbar should no longer have the red x and hovering the mouse cursor over it will show the Wireless Network Connection status. Hopefully, if this procedure has solved your problem, you should consider securing your access point to prevent unauthorized access of it. After securing, you will need to refresh the network list and then do a re-connect.

In the Network Connections window, right click on the USB adapter and select Properties. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab. In the Preferred networks area, select the name of your wireless network so that it is highlighted. Then press the Remove button. Click OK.

Windows should now inform you that it has located an available network. Try connecting into it now.

Laptop no longer recognizes wireless network


Have you tried unplugging the router, and replugging it?
Sometimes the password is in [ ] right on the router near the serial number.
Some routers have a reset button you may have to push in with a toothpick.
