Welcome home Brother....


Reinstall your Router program....
What's your firewall program??? You using Nortons from AKO???
Be sure and open up the windows firewall
Maybe.... turn off your firewalls and then try to access the net.

OK, this is what happened...after I uninstall the Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter, the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter is gone as well. I installed the Atheros back but the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter is gone and i couldn't find it. One bad thing is, i can't even find any wireless connection anymore. Everything went from bad to worse.

The Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter is Windows 7 software,lets you connect to more than one network at a time with one WiFi card...shouldn't stop the card from connecting to the router...do you have a password to access the router, also check to see if a firewall is blocking access, and check device manager for any little ! points

The network you were seeing might have been one of your other computers

Restored it to an early date. I got the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter back. I'm done messing with it when it comes to connecting it to the internet thru wireless. I will just go to Bestbuy and let the experts deal with it. Thanks anyway guys.
If i didn't "up" your reputations please let me know and i will follow up on it. Thanks again!

Sorry we couldn't get it going...but on one last note take it to a local computer shop instead....do some business with them and they will help you in many ways...need a odd ball screw....they got it....cheap used drives...ditto...buy a computer with a wiped hard drive, but with a windows sticker code....as I did...a small fee later got me a windows xp pro oem disk I needed...an hour on the phone to set up a new modem...no charge...great guys!

Some recent experience with an emachine laptop presented a similar prob....after updating drvs and unstalling and reinstalling a few times,(wire connect worked fine), I found out after some frustration that the wireless has to be turned on ever time I start it up from full off. Haven't ever seen any thing like that. I had to press a function key on lower left side plus the f2 key. Might this be something thats going on with ur wireless????
