    Hello All,

    I am having strange problem, i have a Airlive 5400 AP, i have 7 Desktops and 3 Laptops all in the same location, all the Desktops have wireless netwok cards and there is no connectivity issue with them, but out of three two laptops are unable to connect and when i click the View Available Wireless Networks option it shows nothing however the Wireless Card is enabled and worked fine for 3 consecutive days and then this problem occured, in the night it worked again and then again problem, what i do not understand is that i never messed up with settings then why it shows the Wireless network for a day and then the other day or the same day everything vanishes, please help me out

    "There is no problem with the signal as its a small room and from the same location thery get excellent signals, i still took laptop close to the AP"

    it may be worth downloading the latest drivers
    are they the same laptop make model

    do you have secruity on - if so try witout

    do you have a cordless phone

    it may be other networks are now in the area interferring

    a good program to check
    Free software to check signal strength of wireless is netstumbler 0.4.0 available for download from http://www.stumbler.net/

    try and ping the router default gateway IP

    Try a system restore to just before the problem started.
