What type of WiFi Access Point do you have?

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Windows 7

If it is not broadcasting the SSID what you are experiencing is correct.

In that case you need to setup the computer to work with your WiFi Access Point by entering the correct Numbers/PassPhrase in the required fields.

Have you enabled Network Discovery

by Jacky Howe In reply to Windows 7

Enable or disable network discovery Windows 7

If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps.

Network discovery is a network setting that affects whether your computer can see (find) other computers and devices on the network and whether other computers on the network can see your computer. By default, Windows Firewall blocks network discovery, but you can enable it.

1.Open Advanced sharing settings by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type network, click Network and Sharing Center, and then, in the left pane, click Change advanced sharing settings.

2.Click the chevron to expand your current network profile.

3.Click Turn on network discovery, and then click Save changes. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
