✔ Best Answer
A little unclear here as to what is where...

Are you switching a single wifi adapter from one computer to another - as in you do not have a wifi card/adapter in each PC? Or do you mean you have two identical wifi cards - one in each PC (desktop or tower)?

What make and model is/are the card/s.

Does the working PC see the SSID for your wifi signal from the router: does the "other" PC see it or not?

Have you set the option to "hide" the SSID in the router's wifi setup/management; and if so - do you actually know what it is (and the password for it)?

On the router - have you enabled any form of access control - apart from an encrypted access key/password?

Have you set up MAC filtering on the router - which allows any one of these options: allow anyone to connect (to wifi); allow only those in the list to connect: disallow those in the list to connect...

Edited to correct syntax error...

Please amplify what you mean by cannot connect.

Can you see any networks and in particular your own?
If so what exactly happens when you try to connect?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

to aprecer the problem was that this adapter does not work on windows 32 bit. PC's with 32 bit works.

Sorry, I find that confusing. If you mean the adapter doesn't work on one 32 bit PC but not on the others then sure, that's understood from your original post.

None of the questions in #1 or #2 have been answered so it's difficult to go any further.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
