I have just upgraded a Dell laptop with Vista to Windows 7, befor with vista the wifi worked it picked up my network, now with Win 7 it does not list my network, it sees others around me but not mine??.
Some advice please
I Would agreed with Alanrwood , Could be a problem with the router- As your PC is able to detect other Wireless networks . As advised ,check if a different PC is able to detect your network . You could also perform a power cycle on the router - Can help resolve connection issues .
Thanks one and all for your advice, as I described above all worked ok until I upgraded to win 7, I have two other computers, the desktop pc ethernet wired that's ok and my I pad and that works ok, I use a netgear wireless router which I have re-booted by unpluging from the supply for 10 mins.
Thanks I will try your suggestion.
I assume you are using Vista / Windows 7. Click Start > Type " CMD " under Search Programs & Files > Right Click on CMD ( Under Programs )& Click run as administrator.Follow the rest of the steps as suggested by Difarm.
Thanks everybody, I finally sorted it buy changing the router channel from 13 to 6 , the confusing thing was that when this laptop was running Vista it picked up the wifi network just fine but when it was changed to win 7 it would not...
