I use a Satellite Pro PC. When it starts a "balloon" in the system tray tells me something like "Wireless networks available". With ConfigFree / Summit I can see the name of my WLAN displayed. But when I try to display the list of WLAN available I get something like "No WLAN around" !!!! Everything else seems OK.
I tried everything: deactivate, uninstall WLAN card, update driver, ....... NOTHING !!!!
Not sure what you are doing exactly but are you sure that you have configured the WLan properly.
First of all ConfigFree cannot be used to configure the Wlan.
If you are using Win 7 then you have to do this in Network & Sharing Center
Go to control panel and open Network & Sharing Center.
On the left click on Manage WLAN networks.
Now you can add the new WLan and can configure the access to the home WLan.
Insert right SSID, encryption and encryption password.
PS: be sure that WLan has been enabled properly. At the front side you have to move the WLan switch into ON position and additionally you have to use FN + f8 to enable the WLan.
