    Hello,
    I have two computers and a wiresless network that both computers were working well with for nine months. The desktop uses XP the lap top Vista.
    Two days ago the XP dropped the wiresless connection. Upon investigation the message in the Wireless Network Connection window stated, " No wireless networks were found in range." Clicking on Refresh Network List gives the same message. Troubleshooting sends you to the systems adminsistrator, which is me and I don't know how to correct the problem.
    I was able to boot up my Vista lap top beside the XP desktop and had no problem connecting to the wireless. I use a d-Link router and I am not able to find the XP desktop on the network.

    Help would be appreciated. Ivon

    What wireless adapter do you have in the desktop?

    Does it appear as "OK" in Device Manager? Are there any warnings or errors or unknown devices in Device Manager?

    Does the wireless connection show in Network Connections? Is it enabled?
