    Please help. I can connect through a cable, which explains how I can write this, but unfortunately i can't connect wirelessly.
    When i go to the screen that is supposed to have a list of available networks, it just says there are no networks in the area/in range (in Norwegian), even though I know for afact there are at least 3. The problem is on the lpatops side because I have tried in three different locations from my school, my friends house and at home, each one with more than one network around. I tried updating the list, restarting, absolutely everything I could think of.

    This has happened before, but I took it to a guy I know that is good with computers and he fixed it in under a minute. I never thought to ask him how he did it because that was the first time it had ever happene, and I thought the problem was gone for good, but then here it is again.

    I have a HP ProBook 4320s running windows XP sp3. If you need more info just say.

    Thank you for reading!

    Try downloading the network adapter drivers HERE.

    If you're not able to detect any network, my guess is faulty hardware or a driver issue. :)

    make sure the wireless is switched on- HPs often have a blue light on the machine when wireless is on - and have a physical switch or use a combination of FN + one of the F keys to switch on /off

    otherwise post back an xirrus image here

    {run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

    Then run the program
    if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

    post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
    To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

    and ipconfig /all

    {ipconfig /all}
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
    We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
    -> Start
    -> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
    cmd /k ipconfig /all
    -> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
    cmd /k ipconfig /all

    A black box will appear on the screen -
    rightclick in the box
    select all
    control key + C key - to copy

    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste
