My XP lap top shows that wireless networks are being detected, but when i refresh the list, none show.

Toshiba laptop, wireless switch is turned on.

Checked Firewall, AVG, etc.

Please help.

Thanks!

Hi helpcook.

A neighbour who is connected to my wireless system had this problem the other day. I can't remember the specifics, but we went hunting thru Properties and checked a box which said to let Windows handle the connection, and all was good.

OK. Some one else will probably have more clues, but I use Network Magic Pro on all my computers and have very little trouble with connections.

You can try a 7 day trial from here which may get you up and running

Did this problem just happen out of the blue after it had been working OK?
Have you tried turning off the power to the Wireless modem for 30 seconds and restarting it?
Have you been to the modem website and checked for a firmware update?
