My wireless network is not showing, only others are showing

By umesh2063 ·
Hi all,

I am facing a strange problem in my laptop. I am using wifi to use internet where we use 3-4 laptops. I bought new Asus laptop, but the wireless network is not showing. But its detecting all the other nearby wireless networks. Tries to uninstall/re install the wireless drivers, but nothing happened. I could not get rid of the issue since many days.
Please somebody do the needful.

Reboot your wireless router/ap

by cpguru21 In reply to My wireless network is no ...

Have you tried rebooting your wireless router/ap? You dont say exactly what you are trying to connect to. I am guessing its your home wireless router. It is possible that a simple reboot of your wireless router would resolve your problem. When you reboot it, determine if the device feels excessively warm. I have seen this issue in cases where the wireless router is overheated.

Find the wireless network icon on your computer (on Windows, you'll find an icon that looks like 2 computers or a set of bars in your taskbar on the bottom right of your screen; Macs will have a wireless symbol in the top right of the screen).
View available Wi-Fi networks by either right-clicking the icon and selecting "View Available Wireless Networks" (Windows XP) or by clicking the icon and selecting to "Connect or disconnect..." (Windows Vista). On Mac OS X and Windows 7 and 8, all you have to do is click on the Wi-Fi icon to see the list of available networks.
Choose the network to connect to by clicking the "Connect" button (or just selecting it on Win7/Mac).
Enter the security key. If the wireless network is encrypted (with WEP, WPA or WPA2), you'll be prompted to enter the network password or passphrase. This will be stored for you for next time, so you'll only have to enter it once.
On Windows, select the type of network this is. Windows automatically sets up security for different network location types (Home, Work, or Public). Learn more about these network location types here.
Start browsing or sharing! You should now be connected to the Wi-Fi network. Open your browser and visit a website to confirm the internet connection.
