Wireless network not listed in available networks

by medialink-router / July 4, 2011 10:39 AM PDT

I recently bought a Medialink Wireless N router and configured it as per the instructions. I have a desktop computer connected to the router now and it works great with a wired internet connection. However when I try to connect to the wireless network with my laptop, the network does not appear in the available list of networks. The broadcsting SSID feature for the router has been enabled. I am not able to figure out if it is a problem with the wireless network or my laptop, because my laptop has been acting weird lately. Is there a way to test that the wireless adapter on my laptop is working fine. I am able to see other wireless networks on the list. How do I know for sure that my wireless network is set up right? Please help.
Thanks in Advance!

But unless you supply a link to the manual for the router, I can't note what chapter or page it's on.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
