    Windows shows a small fraction of available wifi networks


    Hi, I got a brand new Windows laptop and I noticed that it shows a fraction of the networks my macbook used to find. I attached two screenshots of the network lists from both computers while they are sitting right next to one another. What is happening with windows, how can I make it display the remaining networks? Thanks

    Available Networks Not Showing

    My list of available wifi networks has suddenly stopped showing in windows 10. The list of networks is not showing when I click the system wifi icon in the notification bar. The list of networks does not show using 'show available networks' in Windows
    Settings. Windows Settings will crash if I go to the WiFi page and select 'Manage Known Networks'.

    I am connected to the internet using my normal WiFi. I created a wlan report. It seems to show that the wlan is working fine. I can list the available networks using the cmd line 'netsh wlan show networks'. They all show up as they should.

    So, it appears the hardware is working but some windows module has stopped working and providing the list of available networks.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

  3. Laptop won't show list of available networks

    We suggest checking the list of available Wi-Fi networks on your laptop.

    Please follow these steps:

    • Click the Windows logo.
    • Go to Settings (gear icon).
    • Select Network and Internet.
    • Then Wi-Fi.
    • Make sure the Wi-Fi radio button is On.
    • Select Show available networks, then you'll be able to see the list of available Wi-Fi networks.

    Update us with the outcome so we provide further assistance.

    Windows shows a small fraction of available wifi networks

    Wifi Networks not showing


    On my Laptop if I wanted to change the wifi connection I would always see a list of the available networks when I selected the Wifi icon on the task bar.
    Since the last major update to Windows 10 I find that when I select the wifi icon I only see the current connection

    To see other networks within range I have to open the 'Network settings' and choose 'Show available networks' - then they show up.

    Does anyone have any explanation for this - or possibly a 'fix' to show them all from the taskbar again.
