    Hi. Recently I was watching a movie on my laptop, but I hadnt noticed that my battery was low, ao it turned off. I put the charger on and then I noticed that I cannot find any wireless networks (and normally, there are at least 10 networks in my range). I searched in the forums for help and I noticed that many peaple have problems with these adapters, but I couldnt handle on my own. So if you guys would be kind enough to explain a newbie what exactly to do, I would be very grateful.

    Uninstall and reinstall the wifi driver :
    Left click the Start button
    Click Control Panel
    Click System control panel
    Click the Hardware tab
    Click the button labeled Device Manager
    Select the device you wish to uninstall in the Device Manager window
    From the toolbar, click the uninstall button (looks like a computer with a red X over it)
    You can also uninstall by right clicking on the device and selecting Uninstall from the context menu. A dialog box will open asking you if you really wish to uninstall the driver. Click YES, then OK in the next window, then OK in the System Properties Window.

    Now reinstall the driver from CD.
