I have a computer (Windows XP) that was linked to the internet via a cable to a Wireless router. The comuter has always had a wireless card (netgear)fitted but internet access was always available via the cable link. I have now removed the computer to another place (only a few feet) from the wireless router but cannot establish a wireless lik, although the netgear card seems to be active but there are no networks shown, although I know of at least three others in the local vicinity as shown on my laptop. Have I somehow locked the comuter to the cable link? If so, how can I change it to access wifi links?
You say the wireless card is netgear but what make is the router? but if you say your laptop can see other availiable networks but the desktop can't then I would say you still have a problem with the card.
