Wireless connection not detected on Windows® 7
Is your Windows 7 based system not detecting the wireless connection?
Windows 7 is a highly advanced Operating System and provides you with the latest connectivity features. However, there may be times when you may find that your Windows 7 based system is not detecting the wireless connection or there are problems with it. There may be several reasons for this issue.
Lets us discuss those reasons in detail.
- Anti-malware does not allow access
- Problem with the router
- Interruption from external devices
- Problem with the wireless connection
Anti-malware does not allow access
If you have recently installed an anti-malware program and the wireless connection has stopped getting detected since then, then there are possibilities that the anti-malware program you have installed is not allowing your computer to access the wireless network. In order to solve this problem, you will have to go to your anti-malware program’s settings and make the required changes.
Problem with the router
There may also be a possibility that there is some problem in the router. In such a case, you need to check your router. It may be turned off, its drivers may have become outdated or it may be placed at a farther distance then normal. You need to update your drivers and if they are fine, then check the position of your router. Moving the router closer to the system may make a help in getting you connected.
Wireless connections are quite vulnerable to interruption from external devices like microwave ovens, baby or pet monitors, cordless phones, mobile phones, Bluetooth devices etc. If you are experiencing the problem of wireless connection not getting detected, then make sure that no such devices are operational in your wireless connection’s range.
There may be problem with your wireless connection. In order to repair it, click on the 'Start' button on your Windows 7 based system, and then click on 'Connect to', click on 'Show All Connections', right click on 'Wireless' and then click on 'Repair'. If this does not help, then try to reset your router by unplugging it and plugging it back after a few seconds. Wait for the router to reboot and doing so, you may solve your problem.
