      Angry Wireless Not Visible

      Hi Guys,

      When I try and connect either of my laptops to my wireless, most of the time it will see the router and connect perfectly.

      But every now and then, the router can not even be seen. The only way to get round this is to restart my router and then the laptop picks up the wireless and connects fine.

      Just a weird one as I have not changed anything on there and it has only been happening for the last few weeks.

      Please Help!

      Re: Wireless Not Visible

      When you say "see the router" do you mean it shows up as an available wireless access point in the wireless adapter's scan utility screen ?

      I mean when choosing to search for Wireless Networks it does not show up until I restart the router then it appears and works fine.

      Re: Wireless Not Visible

      You might like to try changing the Routers WiFi channel. It could be local intermittent interference. Depending upon the current setting try 1, 6 or 10 and see how it goes.
