    Hey all!

    my dog accidently jumped on my table and spilt tea all over my keyboard. Thank god it still works even though the keyboard doesnt really work properly which i am not too bothered about as i am going to get it fixed next week

    Main problem is ever since the incident, my wireless adaptor does work but howwever it doesnt detect any wireless networks. I am using windows 7 and i can load up the wireless manager where i can select my wire less network.. but for some reason all i can isee it Dial-up and VPN and above saying "connections are available" even though no wireless networks are showing

    normally i can see about 6 in my neighbour hood but all i can see is a dial up one that i setup a few months ago

    my wireless adapter is Atheros AR9284 Wireless network adapter

    How do you know he accidentally did it? :D

    Seriously, if it is a laptop computer and there is a chance the spill ran under the keyboard, I would disconnect the power and take the battery out until it is completely dry. This took almost two weeks for my sons laptop.

    If it's a desktop, just use another keyboard until this one dries.
