Vista not showing my networks.

  1. Huge problem with the network thing, it's showing no connection when I clearly am connected wirelessly to my home network.

    Not really a problem, but it also won't load the network list, so if it isn't saved(school hotspot) I cannot access it whatsoever.

    Happened recently, didn't really do anything, just started bugging out. Using Vista Home Premium.



    When I highlight it, SOMETIMES it will say

    "Connection status: unknown

    Server execution failed"

    Try restarting your router or repairing your wireless connection by right clicking the connection thing in by the clock and click Diagnose and Reapir

    Of course I tried that. It doesn't even solve the problem temporarily.

    Thanks though!

    Welcome to Vista.

    I've had enormous dramas setting up Wireless on Vista, and have found the best way is to do it manually {Enter SSId & WEP/WPA} so that Vista will then ask what Location to add it to {Home / Work etc}. If it doesn't do that, it won't let you connect.

    Someone else may have a better fix - and I'm interested to try it! - but that will work. Or should :rolleyes:
