Hello,

I have a compaq presario V5000 with Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN installed. I recently tried to set up Wireless connection and "No Wireless Networks are available". My roommate has no problem connecting to the Wireless Network so I don't think its a problem with the router/modem. Also, I am unable to detect ANY networks (neighbors etc.).

I have installed most recent driver (Driver 5.60.350.6) with no luck.

Here is some more info:

ISP: Verizon
Use Windows XP
Router: NETGEAR

Attached Xirrus screen print.

Any help much appreciated!!!!!!

and welcome to the Forum

Xirrus is showing four networks close . . is yours Netgear74? None of those show when you search for networks?

Do you have physical access to the router?

Has this pc ever been able to connect ot a wireless network?

Hi Rich!

Thanks for quick reply. Yes, no networks show up in my Wireless Network list. I had no problem connecting via wifi until now. Have not tried for about 3 months (due to move) but wireless worked liked a dream at my last local.

Also my router is the Netgear 74.

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if foundhere's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.


To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.
