Hi Can anybody tell me how to find a list of available broadband connections in Windows 7... I have clicked on the icon in the task bar, it shows connections are available but no list... Any help appreciated. Thanks

This is for WiFi not Ethernet Cable

right-click the icon in the task bar and select View Available Wireless Networks.

or You can also go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections, right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon and click View Available Wireless Networks.

The name and WiFi password should be on label on your Router.

Thanks lotvik I have tried the suggestions you have mentioned but still no joy! this is on wi-fi and I am trying to add a 2nd PC to the internet......it was on there till BT sent me a up to date huh....

Silly question I know but if it's a laptop is the wireless switched on and if it's a desktop are the wi-fi drivers installed, open control panel-hardware & sound-device manager (Top row) and look to see if there any exclamation marks on the network adapters anyway uninstall said adapters and restart pc to see if they re-insall. From Amazon I purchased a USB network adapter and you could as well as it works ok good backup as well in case normal adapter fails.

Thanks mole1944 It is a 2nd PC, which until BT sent me a new Hub worked OK on Wi-fi, but I will check out you suggestions, or if no luck get the Adapter!!! appreciate you taking the trouble to answer.....

"it was on there till BT sent me a up to date huh" (I presume you mean new hub)

And does the new hub have a different SSID (network name) and WiFi password? or have you been looking for the old name when you are looking for what to connect to?

Find the wireless network name (SSID) and wireless key for my BT Home Hub click here

Of course if no list at all is showing then the above is not the problem :)

Is the BT hub set to broadcast its SSID (Its network name). If so it will not show up. Just a daft thought.

Why can’t I find a wireless network? things to check click here

Yes, sorry should have meant Hub.... I put in new password, still the same network name SSID, but no joy..... What I can't understand is when I click on the Icon in the task bar it should bring up a list of available broadband connections, all it says is that connections are available....
