No Networks Available On Laptop But Working Fine On PC

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me?

I have been using my PAYG dongle for a year now on both my PC (XP) and laptop (Vista). In the last week I have suddenly been unable to connect to mobile broadband via the laptop. When I load connection manager it tells me that there are no available networks yet if I unplug the dongle and put it in the PC, it works fine.

I have installed the latest drivers and connection manager software on the laptop and it still refuses to work. As the dongle will work on the PC I know there is no problem with the dongle or my reception.

Has anybody else encountered this problem or have any suggestions on how to solve it?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I tried that but it was no help.

I resolved the problem in the end by uninstalling the modem via device manager.

I get this most days, if I boot the computer with the dongle plugged in it works but plugging it in whilst Windows is running nearly always results in no networks found.
