  1. Hi guys,

    I have an IBM laptop which has an onboard wi-fi card. When try to view the wireless networks on range, all the neighboring network are detected and can connect to it but the wi-fi connection which i prefer cannot be detected at all. The laptop is a few metres from the router and all the other pc's can connect to that network very well.
    Please assist if you could be having an ideas on what could be the proble.

    Thanks all.

    Try using an add-on PCMCIA wireless adapter

    The SSID may not be configured to be broadcast and thus would appear to be missing.

    If this is YOUR Router/Access point, you need only to use the WiFi Network Conf wizard, enter your SSID and (if necessary) the proper encryption key.
