Hi,

Is this happening on both laptops or just one?

Ok, i'll take it that you have tried the laptop from within the same distance as the working one.

Have you recently changed any settings on the laptop thats not working?

Try uninstalling the drivers for the wireless card and reinstall them.

I have a similar problem, repeating. I login with my work computer and it works ok on wireless for a day or 2. But then it comes back with the "No wireless networks were found in range" error.
A reboot always fixes it but a reboot is very time consuming, as I fequently have 40 or 50 items open.
Work does not allow us to have admin rights so I cannot disable and re-enable the wireless connection. There is a switch for the wireless and turning that off and on does not do the trick but a reboot always does.

Any ideas appreciated.

Hi Ed,

With this being a works system and you not having admin access it would be very hard to run through diagnostic with you, as a lot of things will require admin access.

This being a company system, what i'd suggest is speaking to your IT Dept and have them look into the issues, or just have them give you a working one.

Regards,

Bad new is work does not support wireless at home, only in the office.
(nice for them to be able to just respond "not supported")

Ok, try starting a new thread over here and someone will be able to look into it, whether someone will be able to get this sorted is tricky due to not having the admin access but im sure they will give it a try at least.

Make sure to post full details and the problem and anything that's been tried.
