Wireless laptop can't find Wireless Router

  wolvenclaw 10:22 06 Jan 2006


I have 3 laptops at home, everything used to work fine, till suddenly one of 'em didn't find the wireless network anymore. The laptop does find other networks (havn't connected to one since those weren't my networks but the neighbours'). I have tried:

Switching router on and off

Resetting router with the switch - Connecting to the unconfigured router (the other laptops do) and then again with the password configured.

Finding a hardware button, haven't found any, though it does find other networks so shouldn't be this?

Booting with Linux(ubuntu) live disk, didn't find the card, same with windows PE sp1.

Making a new install of Xp beside the other one

Deleting the card in devices manager and reinstalling it.

Anyone got a suggestion cuz I really don't know how to fix this and since it worked in the past..

Check the IP settings.

checked the ip settings, everything was put on automatic, which should be right cuz my wireless router is a dhcp server. My other laptops have the same.

Any other things?
