    no wireless network detected since updates

    Anyone encountered wireless issues on windows 7/vista since the latest round of windows updates? I only ask as i approved updates on friday after everyone left.

    Yesterday this one laptop was working fine, (VP typical!!!) and she installed the updates at the end of the day, she came in today and now she has no wireless networks visible?

    Laptop in question is a Toshiba U500 windows 7 with a realtek RTL8191SE WLAN 802.11n wifi card inside. going to see if new drivers sort it out, but thought i would see if anyone is experincing the same problem? (also heard rumors of a teacher with a U400 and VISTA with the same problem, but its not been reported to me yet!)

    Did you approve any new drivers? possibly you've installed a new wifi driver and its lost its settings? or does the laptop not see any access points at all?

    past it on to my other tech(i have a huge workload!), downloaded drivers from tosh and now its all good, the U400 was a seperate issue.

    the thing is it couldn't see any networks when you looked for them which was a little weird.

    I found after updating Windows my D-Link DWA-510 wasn't working with the new Ralink Drivers and I had to install the original Drivers to get it working as well. Glad you got a fix, took me ages to figure out, haha.
