Satellite not showing wireless networks, adapter seems ok

my satellite is not showing wireless networks and i can't figure out what networks are available. the adapter seems to be working properly according to windows device manager. i had to uninstall configfree, although i'm not sure that caused any problem. i have had to run a bunch of anti-spyware programs, registry cleaners etc., system seems much better but a few glitches.

Re: Satellite not showing wireless networks, adapter seems ok

so i think i successfully uninstalled and reinstalled configfree, except that now i get a message when i try to run cfmain and cfsserv and ndstray, 'this program only works for a toshiba system'! ndsbrow works fine and shows me cinfigfree details. still nothing at all in the networks folder. don't know how else to access wireless options. any help out there?

You probably did more damage running the registry cleaners than you solved.  You'll probably be better off backing up all of your data and restoring the system to it's factory out of box state with the recovery disks or by using the hard drive based recovery process.

Re: Satellite not showing wireless networks, adapter seems ok

so short of that there's no way to troubleshoot the network configuration or wireless networks available?

i didn't see a request for system information. i can provide that. it's a toshiba satellite r15-s822. it is running windows xp tablet pc edition, version 5.1, sp3. is there anything else that would be helpful?

Re: Satellite not showing wireless networks, adapter seems ok

It's possible, but it might be a lot more work to do so.  It all depends on how soon you need to get it fixed.  I'm not a network specialist so I can't really offer much in the way of assistance other than what I already did.  It's possible someone else might have other ideas, but since you didn't post this in the Networking and WiFi Forum where it belongs it's quite possible that those networking specialists will never even see your post to respond to it.  I know that I rarely go into the Networking Forum as it isn't my strong suit.
