    No, it's ok.

    I've fixed it now.

    Thanks.

    Ok, I really do have a problem with XP (Home, SP3).

    My netbook won't detect my wifi connection. It detects my neighbour's and plenty of others, just not mine. It appeared on the wireless connections list once however when I put my password in, it didn't connect, and when I refreshed the list it disappeared again.

    The router is working fine as my iPhone and iPad are both connecting to the internet fine.

    I have turned my router off for a bit and turned it back on, also reset my TCP/IP settings on the netbook with no luck.

    Help please?

    What wi-fi encryption do you have? Have you tried connecting manually?

    Tried connecting manually by entering my SSID and password, no luck. Using WPA2.

    If I buy a USB wifi dongle will that help or not?

    I deleted the one I tried adding manually, but it would not detect it automatically when I scanned. Really weird as it detected it once at full strength and that's it, then it disappeared off the list after failing to connect.

    Tried changing the channel it's broadcasting on?

    I remember having an issue with a wifi card once that wouldn't pick up 12 or 13.

    Wire your computer to the router and make sure it's broadcasting it's ssid.

    I'm certain the SSID is being broadcasted because it appears on my Vista laptop and all my Apple gear, I deleted the connection from them and searched it again and it scanned up as normal on all of them.

    Try running inssider to see if it can pick it up through that.

    The same thing used to happen with my old laptop. It used to really struggle with WPA sometimes not even seeing the signal and in the end I had to just use WEP. It still couldn't see the signal but it would at least connect and stay connected.

    Yes it sounds unconnected but there you go. I've learnt in IT that sometimes you just have to accept a gaffer tape fix and move on, otherwise you can spend too long trying to fix stuff that will just drive you mad.

    It's ok folks. I've just been round SuperCoolEskimo's gaff and fixed it.

    His hard drive was full of goat porn. His router had died of shame.
  • Deleted user 19 April 2012 23:23:29
    He is an eskimo too, which is nice. I like eskimos.

    How much of the goat porn did you have to watch before establishing it as the source of the problem?
  • Deleted user 19 April 2012 23:59:12
    Every Eskimo I've ever known had been a rapist, a paedophile or into cannibalism.

    Weird, netbook decided it would detect the wifi today and connect absolutely fine.

    Thanks for the suggestions all.
