Hello. As the topic states I have an issue with my wireless network card in that I cannot see my secure wireless connection. With this card I can connect to my network using the "guest" account and it does show me other networks nearby but will not show me my '"secure" account. This card can display and connect to the secure network using Linux and I can connect to the secure account on this same laptop using a different network adapter. I have tried updating the driver for this card but that did not help. My  system specs are as follows, the computer is a Compaq evo, the wirless card is a 2wire 802.11g, the router is a Cisco linksys E1200.  I am about 20' away from the router and have cable internet service.  I have ran the mini toolbox program and have attached the results.  Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance. John

That is a baffling problem, can you connect to your secure network manually? It's like you permanently removed the secure network. I didn't think that was possible tho.....still researching.

CaveDweller2,  Thanks for the response. I am not sure how to connect manually but I will "Google it" and find out how and let you know what I come up with.  Also as I am not a "computer guy" I was glad to hear you say "that's baffling" as I was hesitant to post this problem because I assumed I was doing something stupid  and the fix would be a simple mouse click hear or there.  Thanks again for your assistance.  John

http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?articleNum=10781 = a decent how-to on connecting to a network you can't see but know the name

 

Do me a favor just to check something:

 

1) Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network Connections.

2) Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.

3) On the General tab, click Configure.

4) Click the Advanced tab.

 

In the list click on SSID and make sure the Value: on the right has ANY in it. I'm sure it does but just curious.

 

I am still baffled lol and never be worried about asking a question you don't understand...it's how we learn =)

You got to the screen below and didn't see SSID? Are you sure you picked your wireless connection? Also, did you try connecting to the network manually?

Hello again!!  I have gotten to the screen shown but did not see SSID listed,I have attached a screenshot(I think) to this post as I could not figure out how to post it directly into my reply. Also I followed the Belkin link you mentioned and I still could not get the secure network to display after I "searched for nearby networks".

no where in those instructions did it say to click View.....you are Adding the network manually. By clicking Add, typing in the SSID(the name of your secure network), selecting what kind of authentication you have in the drop down, the encryption you use in the drop down, then typing the pass phrase  twice and clicking OK, making sure that is the only thing listed in your Preferred wireless networks and clicking OK. Then see if it connects.

CaveDweller2 Thanks for your help!! I have tried to connect manually but "no joy". I am thinking that you have spent enough of your time on this issue so what I just might do is buy a another adapter like the one I use on my desktop that Is known to work with my laptop. Thanks again for your help!!     John.

Thanks but on't worry about me, I do this to work my brain in different ways than my day to day works it. But if you added it manually and still couldn't connect....that has reached the end of my ideas on what is going on, so it might be the easiest thing to try a different adapter. 

 

Now if that doesn't work....its time to format/install lol or drop it out a window lol

 

You could try to restore back to a time it did work....couldn't hurt.

Thanks again for your help CaveDweller2. I do not know what "motivation" the people like yourself and the many other forum helpers receive here at this site but you guys are very much appreciated on my end. Like I stated above I am not a computer guy but with the help of this site and people like you I am able to keep mine and my families computers and related problems mostly in check. I do my best to promote this site to as many people as I can when there computers act up.   Thanks again.. John
