    Please help me!

    Ansewered questions:

    Have you checked to be sure the router is working?
    How many networks do are you normally able to see with your machine?
    Have you tried restarting the machine, uninstalling the wireless adapter drivers and re-installing?

    It could be a hardware not a software/driver problem. I suggest the wireless adapter is faulty.

    Maybe,I will reinstall Windows to see if this happens again.

    If the wireless adapter is faulty, reinstalling Windows won't fix a hardware problem. That said, after installing Windows, did you install all motherboard, LAN, sound, video and wireless adapter drivers?
