    >I have installed a wireless card on to a pc and it worked fine, no problems. Now
    >it can not find the any wireless connections. If I use my laptop this can find mine
    >and connect with no problems. I have taken the card out and tried it on my other

    Hi welcome,
    since your wireless card doesn't seem to be Windows 7 compatible

    Have you tried with TP-LINK Support Center ?

    hi !

    leofelix: i think you missed what Ugg said: "I have taken the card out and tried it on my other
    >pc running windows 7 and no problems so it can not be the wireless card."

    if it works on another W7-PC, then its NOT a problem with compatibility...

    Thank you hacklerman1
    I was just wondering when hackerman1 would have taken part in this thread;-)

    I still think that our new member would better to check TP-Link web page since Microsoft doesn't consider that wireless card as Windows 7 compatible.

    If you have any solution, you are welcome, of course

    I'd suggest you try the network troubleshooter and see if they throw anything

    Maybe this is a long shot...but... oh well... it happened to me.LOL.

    This could happen if you installed the software that came with your wireless card.
    You should always let windows use it's own connection manager (and uninstall third party soft).

    Thumbs down

    I had problems too, in fact I still have! I bought a new laptop with Windows 7, and tried the famous 'home networking wonder' but apparently it is only really efficient with 'puters using Windows 7. I have 2 other 'puters in out house (next to each other) and my laptop picks up one running XP Pro, but can't find my other running XP home. I have renamed the workgroup so they are the same (a tip) but still to no avail. Any ideas anyone ?
