Around mid-February I posted about setting up a password for my wireless connection.  RKinner helped me-thanks again!. Earlier today i could not connect. I restarted the PC. I unplugged both router and modem for a while. The connection I created is not on the list. Linksys WirelessG WRT54G. NetGear N600 WNDA3100v3 Win7 PC.

Have you tried moving your computer closer to the router?

The machine may be too far from the router to get a clear enough signal, or an obstruction could have been placed between the computer and router.

 

Are other devices able to see the wifi network?

It might be the router, not the machine. But, we do need to isolate which device it is

 

Can your computer see other networks?

The wireless card could have gone bad, a switch could have been hit, or the card could have been accidentally disabled.

Hey Rikai,

                Sorry for the late reply. i did move closer to the router in a way. I used a 10ft. USB male/female extension cable.  Now I have five full bars of strength. I am able to see other networks.

 

The problem seems to be power outages. The network disappears when the power is out for a while. The fix I found was to reset the router back to admin/admin and start over with setting up a network. Too bad there's not a permanent fix.
