My Compaq Presario R3000 has a built in Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN card, but starting about a month ago it stopped recognizing wireless networks. Even if my laptop is sitting on top of a wi-fi transmitter it still shows "No wireless networks were found in range".
I've run the repair utility, checked the device manager and rolled back and re updated the driver, but I still get the "Wireless Network Connection is Not connected" message.
P.S. I haven't used my laptop's wi-fi for about six months, because of a bad power inverter in my screen. It seemed like a fairly easy fix so I did the repair myself. Could I have possibly damaged something?
Do you have any suggestions?
