Question

wifi dongle

I have a wifi dongle that stopped working on my desk top PC with my wifi. But it shows up all the other networks around except mine ! I have done all the usual things. I have two other lap tops which use the same wifi and they are fine. I can't seem to fix this problem. So that is why I am asking for some help.

Does your router use the same frequency band as all other around?

At some time, probably by accident, you set that connection to be ignored or never connected to. Look in your settings for connections and change that.

I agree you could block it on your computer, try to find this options maybe this is simple as that, the more that you have such connections on other computers Happy
