Wireless name is not showing in laptop

Wireless name is not showing in the laptop or mobile

Problem nature
  • Router wifi is visible to other laptop or device but not in your laptop or computer
Assumed Conditions
  • Your laptop and the router are both in good condition
  • Your laptop wireless setting are in default condition
  • Your router SSID is enable and visible to other devices

    If there are many wireless devices around your location, there could be signal interference, try to change the value of Wireless Channel, the default value is Channel 6, try to use Channel 4 or Channel 11.

    For example

  • Method 2

    Check for the wireless settings called Wireless Transmission Mode, set it to support all B+G+N mode. Also check for the setting called Transmission Channel Width, set it to AUTOMATIC (20/40 AUTO).

    For Example

  • Many devices with legacy operating system, mobile devices, legacy wireless devices supports WEP security mode. However, this is weak security but it can cure the wifi nightmare. So if method 1 and method 2 is not working at all, this method will handle the problem related to the visibility of your wifi name.


    WEP is the wireless encryption standard. To use it you must enter the same key(s) into the router and the wireless stations. For 64 bit keys you must enter 10 hex digits into each key box. For 128 bit keys you must enter 26 hex digits into each key box. A hex digit is either a number from 0 to 9 or a letter from A to F. For the most secure use of WEP set the authentication type to "Shared Key" when WEP is enabled.
    You may also enter any text string into a WEP key box, in which case it will be converted into a hexadecimal key using the ASCII values of the characters. A maximum of 5 text characters can be entered for 64 bit keys, and a maximum of 13 characters for 128 bit keys.
