Hi greenback,

Thank you for visiting Windows 7 community.

If Windows does not detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one the following reasons:

· The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.

 · Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.

 · The wireless router or access point is turned off or is not working properly.

 · There is interference with other devices.

 · Windows is not configured to connect to the right type of network.

 · The router or access point is busy.

 The network you are looking for is set to not broadcast its network name (SSID).
