    I have a Dell D610 Laptop that I travel with. I always connect to various hotel and office wireless networks. I am in a hotel now where I can not see the network. I know it is here and my co woker is able to see it and connect to it, but it never shows up in my avaliable list. I know nothing is wrong with my laptop as I connected today at another hotel we had meetings at. What could possibly be the problem? I called Dell and they want to replace the wireless parts of the laptop. I am running XP.

    Do you have the wireless turned on? Hit Fn + F2 to see if its on.

    It is on. The icon is lit up and I tested it to be certain.

    Thanks for the fast reply. Any other ideas?

    Can you right click the little pc moniter in the task bar and select " open network connections? " See if the wireless network connection says connected or not.
