why wont connections pull up?

by farmersdad / July 9, 2013 11:48 AM PDT

When I open the network and sharing center I have an option to connect to a network. When I click it, nothing happens at all...I've tried to find a way to bring up connections but can't find any. Help please and thank you!

Clarification Request
No make or model.

Maybe this machine didn't ever work? There's so little story that my advice is to call it's maker and ask how to install the OS again.

I use the laptop everyday at home and it automatically connects to my home WiFi. I am at my brothers and he can use his laptop and use our phones off his router but when I click connect to a network it won't pull up anything

Which is proper if they hid the router SSID.

Given the story so far, not much can be offered. But there was some advice about security to hide the WiFi SSID and then folk complain such as this. Maybe that was not good advice?
