Hello, my Dell Inspiron mini doesnt recognize any nearby wireless network. I am running it on windows 7, whenever i click on the right side of the taskbar it shows nothing. Although its not possible for any defect in my router as all my other device are working fine on it. I have tried to troubleshooting the problem but failed. Please help me in fixing this.

Thanks in advance..
