Default Can't detect any access points [SOLVED] - 08-18-2010, 05:23 AM

Hi all,

I just bought my Dell Studio XPS 16 a few weeks ago, and I'm loving it! However, as of yesterday, my computer won't detect any access points. I've used my home network and other public networks with ease, but now I can't connect to any router at all. I've rebooted, disabled and reenabled my wireless cards, but nothing seemed to work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I know you disabled it but have you tried to delete the wireless adapter and let windows re-detect it?

Wow, after I disabled and re-enabled all my wireless adapters, I hooked up the ethernet post and still no luck. I thought it was odd that both the ethernet and wireless connections didn't work, so I called Dell to find out that I tapped the wifi on/off button next to my media controls by accident. Thanks for the help though!
