    Can't display list of available wireless networks


    No error given, it just does nothing when i click on the internet access icon. I checked through the network diagnostics and i can see the name, signal strength etc of assorted wifi routers on this street being given correctly, so presumably hardware is fine and driver is working.

    Computer has just been moved into this area for the first time, and was working fine prior to move.

    The owner had noticed it was suddenly very slow beforehand, which sounds like it was updating.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless adapter, no effect. Works fine via ethernet.

    The owner doesn't know how windows 10 got on the computer in the first place, and i'm not very familiar with it myself.

    :)

    Using your old user profile, run the System File Checker tool. It is a utility that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system and restore corrupted files. The
    link contains further information about how to run the System File Checker
    tool.

    Post the results on this thread.

    Hi Skeptik, Welcome to the TenForums @Skeptik

    First can I ask is Airplane mode On. You will see a little "Airplane" in systray. If so please disable.

    You could be in dead spot, is it possible to relocate back for quick test.

    Next I would run a Network Reset. You will have to re-enter passwords to wireless networks.

    Click on Start => Setting => Network and internet => scroll down to bottom, right hand side and at bottom Network Reset.

    I followed those steps; no effect. I can see from the diagnostics that the signal strength for multiple networks is strong and my own laptop is fine.

    I also tried a usb wifi card i had spare; it installed it fine but the part of windows that displays the available network connections still will not display.

    I presume that particular module is bugged.

    Open up a command window and enter 'netsh wlan show all". If you are showing Access Point SSID's, then you know that things are working. If still not showing on the GUI, remove the device and driver in Device Manager for the network adapter, reboot and let Windows install the default driver.

    Gave it a go; it looks like it's the win 10 connection manager that is bugged. I checked with a sniffer and could see all the routers in the area without a problem, as I expected.

    I know i can manually use netsh to connect, and maybe set up a batch file to do it as the computer boots up, but it would be nice if i could fix the part of windows 10 that has failed.

    If you go to Services, is the "Windows Connection Manager" running? The startup type should also be set to "Automatic".

    Wcmsvc was running; stopped and started it to double check. I think it said automatic (triggered) or something similar - unfortunately it's not mine and it's a distance from this machine.

  13. Can't display list of available wireless networks

    After trying many different methods to get the WiFi available networks to display I found a short term solution to display and connect to the wireless networks. It appears that while logged in under you local account you can’t not get the available wireless networks to display or connect to them. However, if you log out of your user account, and from the lock screen click on the WiFi icon in the right corner of the screen. The available wireless networks will populate and then allow you to connect. After ti connect to the network, then you can login to your computer and remain connected. The only problem with this solution , is that you will have to log out to connect to diffent wireless networks each time.
