Hmm... well this is perplexing. Have you updated the driver for you Wireless card? If not go to ASUS website and find you model and download and install the latest driver.

It seems lot of people have had issues with this particlular wireless card.

My brother has the exact same Wireless card in his Lenovo laptop and I had issues with it too on our network. Not the exact same problem but connection issues. Try to find driver version9.2.1459 or higher.

Dear all,

I had also faced the same problem as discussed in earlier post. I am using DW1520 Wireless N Half Mini Card on Dell Vostro 3400.

Until now, I couldn't manage to connect to my home AP where I can't see my AP but listed only my neighbor's AP. Really need your advise on this matter.

Thank you very much and hope to hear from you soon.

Best Regards ....

Hi metalmania31,

Actually my problems is similar to the others where I cannot detect my own home AP but can see my neighbour's AP.

Hope to hear any idea to solve this problem.

Thank you

Post your "ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt" in command line without quotes.

And you've already done the typical troubleshooting? If not then do a quick troubleshoot following these steps as well.
1.All lights blinking on router and modem?
2. Power Cycle(on/off) both router and modem
3.Use network troubleshooter
-Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Troubleshoot Problems-
3. Check network settings.
-Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings(left panel)>Right Click icon and select properties>Select IPv4 Properties>Check "Obtain an IP address automatically". Same for DNS settings.-

Hi metalmania31,

For your information, I had done the steps as your suggestion but unfortunately it doesn't work. From the BIOS setting, it shows that the adapter is already enable.
My problem is the Wireless Network Connection is not connected where it does not detect my home AP but only shows my neighbour's AP. However, I managed to get connected using my neighbour's AP without any problem (where Wireless Network Connection can connected to internet, seems like wireless adaptor work fine).
What I'm confusing is that other network device (other notebook) can connect to my home AP but not vostro 3400. Futhermore, my vostro can also connected to other AP as now I'm using my neighbour's AP.
Any suggestion to further investigate my problem ?
Really need your help.

Thank you
