Hi,

check first that the wireless has not been inadvertently turned off.... may be a switch on the computer's case or a function key ( you don't give us any details of the make and model number of your computer, so check the owners manual for full information.

If you have a laptop, take a GOOD look around it to find any switch with a little antenna icon. When I say to take a look, I mean to actually LOOK, and CHECK around the laptop, not the pass your hand in hope to feel something obvious. A lot of people just pass their hand around, feel nothing and assume that the switch isn't the problem. Then I tell them to look carefully, they do and guess what ? They find the switch. If it's not that, we'll try something else.

thanks guys. On my Dell there is next to the earphone plug a tiny switch that I must have touched while clearing up the other morning. What a daft place to put a

switch.  Chris

These switches sometime aren't placed at the best spot ever but eh, it's the manufacturer's fault for not thinking about it first ! :P
Glad that paws (because it was his idea) was of assistance to you !
