I have had up until recently not had a problem with my wireless network, I have a D-Link router set up and this is set to WPA personal security with a known password.
I can connect my iPhone and other devices to this router without a problem whatsoever so I know that the router should not have a problem. I have removed the DHCP reservation for my device I am having issue with.
I have a Vista laptop with an Atheros AR5007EG card in it, this I think works OK as I can set up a personal hotspot from my iPhone and browse through that. It is running all of the latest drivers.
The problem is I cannot whatsoever get Vista to see my router network, I always get the 'Windows cannot find any additional networks' and I just cannot get it to see my (or even the neighbours for some reason) network.
I have tried;
1) Reboot of the router
2) Changed the SSID
3) Removed all networks in the manage wireless networks window
4) Changing to an open network (remove WPA)
5) Reinstalling the drivers for the card
6) Restarts of the laptop
What is odd is that it used to work (for years) but now for some reason does not? It feels to me like that it is somehow just excluding my network for some reason.
