    Just curious, were you able to get your Ubuntu up and running? My PC is basically a paperweight now (I'm writing this from another PC).
    Oh you'll get yours, Microsoft.

    @ YMS_1975,
    Please always use 'Code' tags to put your output codes in a 'code' box.
    It preserves its formatting and makes the post more readable.

    I have edited all your previous posts in this thread to put the codes in code box. To see an example of how to do it yourself next time, please follow the 'Code tags example' link in my signature. It is really easy and good for your posts

    Onto your problem-

    As you are already getting help from chilli555, I really can't offer any better help.

    However, just to see a detailed report on current status of wireless, please follow the 'Wireless Script' link in my signature and post back its result as suggested in the linked page.

    As per outputs in post #26 -

    .. it seems that either you are too far away from the access point, or there are no wireless networks in the range at all!

    So please make sure there is an active wireless network within the range, and it is strong enough where you are while running the wireless script.

    Wireless problems are often very subjective and their cause as well as solutions may be very different for different people, although the symptoms may look the same.

    As such, unless you are absolutely sure that yours is the same card, same driver and same issue, you should start a new thread of your own.

    Am I not replying you? Perhaps this is why.

    When you say "there are no wireless networks in the range at all!" that's what I'm having trouble understanding because my phone (PDA) connects to the same wireless network from the exact same spot as the desktop that won't connect.

    Anyways.....I think I'll have to go with plan B for now.
    Oh you'll get yours, Microsoft.
