Windows 7 cannot find a specific wireless network

September 18th, 2011

After an accidently reboot of the router, my win 7 laptop could not find this wireless network anymore. I tried to reboot the router and my computer. But either worked. All the other computers (and phones) can find this network and connect to it. And this computer can found other wireless networks and connect to them, but just not this. I also tried adding this network manually, however without luck. Searching on the internet didn’t give me any clue either.

Finally I thought reinstalling the network adapter’s driver might work. So I went to Device Manager, found the adaptoer, and updated the driver software. Bingo! It worked! Thank god, I don’t have to use someone else’s weak unsecured wireless network any more.
