    You are currently not connected to any networks

    When I started to read Fred Langa's article in Windows Secrets about Win7 stuck in public mode I thought I finally found the solution to a problem bugging me for almost a year. I致e looked everywhere I could think to solve my problem with no success. I知 stuck in a public mode too, but Win7 thinks I知 on a domain, which I am not. That痴 only the beginning. As you can see, I知 told I知 not connected to a network. There is no option to click on selecting a network location.

    If I click on Connect to a Network I get the same result as clicking on the Network icon in the notification area.

    If I click on see full map I get the following:

    Uh, but there is no location type choice. The network icon in the notification area has a red X through it and clicking on it says I am not connected to any network.

    And of course clicking on Open Network and Sharing Center simply takes me back to where I started.

    I am able to access all machines on my LAN and access to the Internet as well even though I知 told I知 not connected. However, if I look at network connections via a shortcut to Network I do see a network map, even though it says I am not connected to a network. Go figure!

    Have you tried a repair install of Win 7.

    Acouple of things come to mind:

    Do you have a network icon on the desktop? If not Right click Desktop and choose Personalize, the Change Desktop Icons and be sure the Network icon is check marked.

    Right Click the Network icon, then choose Manage Wireless Networks.

    Do you see your network listed? Are you able to check / change the Wireless adapter settings? Can you add anything from here?

    Can you check your adaoter properties? Do they look something like this:

    No other thoughts at this point.

    Hi Ted. You said have a great day, and thanks to you I am having a great evening. I never heard of "Repair Install of Win 7." I have been around the 'net for over a year trying to resolve this issue with no success. And something as simple as this fixes it. Aside from taking a couple of hours after making an image of my hard drive and having to deal with allegedly not having a "genuine copy" of Win 7 it was text book. And here I thought I had a reasonable handle on the quirks of Windows. THANK YOU! Herm

    Glad your problem is solved. Once I retire, I will be transplanting south as well, although probably only about half as far as you.
