I seem to be getting some sort of connection, the lights on the adapter keep flashing when I try to connect. The wizard says all is working fine. But my wireless router connection will not show on the available network connects. I can get a couple others to show at times, but not all the time. Please help. Thank You bookem

This sounds like it may be an adapter issue with the notebook. Does this device have the same issue when attempting to connect to other wireless networks?

I would recommend you check and ensure you have the most recent driver available for that devices network interface and if you don't, download and install it and then test again.

I am the captain of my soul.

Probably won't help but nothing lost by unplugging your router for about half a minute to see if works eventually after it is powered up again. I have run into this a few times.

EDIT: Improved wording.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
