    No WIFI

    Hello to Everyone,

    I have a strange issue. Yesterday I relocated our Wireless Modem to a cooler room. We live in the Philippines so these devices can get quite warm...After relocating and hooking up all the wires, cables etc. My wife's computer a Dell, would not connect to the Wireless modem. I checked and replaced all wires with new ones, and rechecked the connections, everything was okay...I use a MAC which is still working fine, and connected right away, so I know the Signal is getting out. I did the "ping" command and it is not going thru. Tried everything I know, cannot get her wireless to work. I have a Red X on her adapter, in the Network Connections dialog box, "Not Connected"...Her system uses a Broadcom 802.11n adapter, which I replaced just recently...When I registered I added all the Dell system info, CPU info etc...So you can see that there...

    Connected the ethernet cable, it is working on that fine...Wonder why after moving the modem this is happening?? Thanks for any help...Or advice...!

    Hi, you could try e.g. Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector (free)

    This will show the signal strength etc etc of ANY WiFi networks in the area, so you could see if any are detected at all.
