Problem with router
If you are seeing no signals of wireless connection, then the first thing you need to check is your router. Switch it on if it has been switched off. If it has been switched on and still Windows 7 wireless is not showing, then make sure that no other devices are interfering in the router’s signals. Such devices may include microwave ovens, cordless phones, baby or pet monitors or GPS devices, which may also transmit same wavelength signals as your router. These signals may interfere with your router’s signals and cause it to not show up.
If you are experiencing the Windows 7 wireless not showing problem, then may be your drivers have become outdated and they need to be updated. Installing the wireless adapter is not enough, you need to keep it updated too. There are latest updates released every now and then, and you have to keep a watch on them and install them whenever needed.
If you are using Windows 7 for a long time and you have never updated it, then may be you have missed some major wireless networking improvements and fixes. In that case, your operating system remains constricted to the basic facilities, and may fail to connect to the wireless connection, especially if latest fixes or updates are needed for it to work. In order to avoid such a situation, you should keep your operating system updated and the best step is to turn on your automatic 'Windows update' option.
