Available wireless networks for amilo laptop

  slieveleague0 19:41 19 Dec 2006

I am running a Philips network to my pc and have recently bought a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo L7320GW notebook. After one successful internet connection after running the Wireless Zero Configuration I now am not able to view any available wireless networks. I tried at a friends house where networks were also running - same problem. Any ideas why my notebook can't see the networks?

Are you sure the wireless lan is turned on?

I mean the receiver on the laptop.

Yes it is.Thanks for trying! Can't understand why it worked the first time and not since.

Go into control panel, network connections and see if you can do anything via "create a new connection".

Just a thought,and i think its what Dio is refering to.

Try pressing FN+F2

I currently have this problem with a new laptop bought on sunday,i think its a fault in the machine.
However using a usb adaptor and transfering the settings using add a wireless network within control panel and a flash drive has got me connected to the router for now while i work on the laptops wireless problem.

If i cannot fix this issue i will be taking it back.

Have tried that but will have another go. Have tried most of the network connection wizards etc.
I can pick up the network using a Philips USB adaptor and software but it is a bit cumbersome and would prefer not to have to use it.

Thanks skidsy - maybe it is a common machine fault?

Maybe slieveleague0,this does sound like a common problem or fault maybe.

There again we may be overlooking something.

Im going to have a look in the bios when i get my hands on the lappy again and see if something needs enabling.

If i find out the cure,i will let you know slieveleague0

Make sure you haven't selected 'ad-hoc' networking - you need 'infrastructure' networking. I have a friend with the same laptop and that worked straight from the box without a problem.

i have check on my problem lappy,not sure slieveleague0 has though.
Thanks for the tip.
