Windows 7: Win 7 Netbook Wifi gone and won't come back.....

status?
trying the nano on another box good root-cause step.
If it works.. I have a simple question. Have you REMOVED power to the laptop and drained it, then tried?
usb ports can and do get hung in an unusable state.

failing that, uninstall in device manager AND remove driver. reboot with no network connection, check to see if it installs a driver again, remove it again and delete driver files until it fails to install. then put on the wired connection and reboot or 'search for driver automatically'.

Thanks again for the replies.

Well I find that the Asus Nano does not work on my desktop pc either.

I've downloaded a Linux Os to try and see if the wifi will work in Linux. Then I might be able to rule out a hardware problem.

Looks to be a Hardware issue but you are right Linux will prove that one way or the other .. At least they not that expensive ...

Well............here I sit on my netbook running Linux Mint with no wifi issues at all. Not only was able to connect straight away but I can also see all the other networks around my area.

So that rules out hardware.

So I guess something must be corrupted or something in my Win 7 system.

I did try a restore but that fails.

Any other suggestions?

This requires some serious thought .. I am pleased you got the WiFi working .. You have tested the Card on two Windows 7 Systems which failed to work .. Leaves me thinking could be a Driver issue ...

Thats my suspicion too but I have been unable to fix the issue by uninstalling and reinstalling so far.

Is there a way to find and remove all networks and network drivers to start from scratch?

When you say Card do you mean taking the netbook apart and physically removing a card from within?
