I downloaded Hide IP and use a wireless router to connect to the Internet. It was slowing down my computer and the wireless card is built into my computer (I use no PC Card) tremendously so I removed it. Now my computer is telling me that there are no:

"wireless networks within range."

I had no problems before I downloaded this program. I also have another laptop that uses a PC card for wireless access. There is no problems with this computer.

Has anyone else had this issue?

it may have damaged some registry keys when you removed the program. try downloading and runing this small program, it resets the host files, dumps dns cache patches reg keys and renews your ip.


if that dosent work, try uninstalling the wireless card's driver and utility, rebooting the machine, then re-installing the driver. if you have win xp sp2, you may get better results using the windows zero wireless utility built into your operating system. depending on your hardware.
