    Hi all. I can't connect to any wireless networks - because I can't detect them anymore. The wireless button is on but no networks appear in the Connect to a Network box. I have disabled/re-enabled the device driver and rebooted a few times but it still won't work.

    I can connect with ethernet ok.
    Does anyone have any suggestions please?!

    When you do connect, do you use WiFi or an ethernet connection?

    Try to run device manager (Type devmgmt.msc in either the search windows or under [Run])
    Does your Wifi device show up under Network Devices? If not, do you have anything under Unknown/Other devices?

    Is this a branded machine, and if so what is it? What OS are you using? Do you see a plane icon? If so you are in Airplane mode and clicking on that should show the networks.

    Sometimes using Troubleshoot Network Problems may show you why you cannot see networks.
