Click here: http://192.168.1.1 to access your router's Control Panel. It will prompt you for the username and password and you shd have these info. Then navigate around your router's setting and locate Mac Filtering then disable it for now and save the new changes.

According to the router settings, no cards on the network have a MAC address, so I'm assuming that's not it, any other suggestions?

Can you try connecting to any Wi Fi Networks?

List and Name all AV, Firewall or Security Software you have installed.

There is only one network in the area, mine and I can sometimes see it, however it say it's unable to connect. Once or twice it actually connected randomly, because I set up a profile with the SSID and the WEP key, but it disconnected after a restart. Win 7 is a fresh install I have ABSOLUTLEY nothing installed accept the motherboard drivers and wireless driver.

Alright...let's try something else. Pls try each one, there's no need to proceed to the next task if it works.

Remove all network wireless profiles stored from your computer the add your own SSID. If it's encrypted make sure to type the correct network key.

Update the router's firmware to the latest. You may download this from the manufacturer's site. use a wired connection to manually install the latest firmware.

Remove the wireless encryption see if you're able to connect or try WEP then apply the same setting to your computer. If all is well, you may try WPA2 Security, so that your wireless network will be a lot more secured.

Change the wireless channel to either 1, 6 or 11. See if you can connect and get a great signal from your router.

Another update will be nice.

Dump WEP and use WPA2/AES. You'll probably notice a more solid connection.

I have not tried disabling security, and I will, but i have tried everything else without any luck. I also can't use WPA because other computers on the network are older and the cards in them don't support it, anyway where I live security isn't a huge worry.

In this thread I was hoping to see if anyone knew anything about the EVGA P55v SLI, as it seems to not always work well with wireless. I've obviously done some research on it, but I was wondering if anyone knew anything else on it.

Thanks

Before disabling the wireless security from your router, try updating your router's firmware to the latest.

An update will be appreciated.
