I have an Advent 7061M Notebook. It is unable to locate networks even when next to a working router. When I look at the Ralink RT2500 Lan Card in device manager properties it says it is working properly When i hold the cursor over the wireless icon at the bottom of the screen it says "Wireless Network Connection 20 Not Connected". I found a thread on this site from a person with the same problem and she was asked for the following information.(Unfortunately a solution was not printed)

I have four network adaptors listed in device manager, none of which has a red cross displayed neither is there anthing with a yellow ? or ! listed:-
GlobeSpan USB ADSL LAN Modem
PPPoE Win Miniport
Ralink RT2500 Wireless LAN Card
Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC

Does this connect using a wired connection? If not, try this stack repair.


TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2/SP3.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

Note: Type only the text in bold for the following commands.

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.
