I have Dell Inspiron Laptop with Windows 7 Home Basic and I usually connect my laptop to Internet through WiFi. Now the problem is, sometimes my laptop does not show list of connections available, and when I restart my laptop, again it shows the list of connections. So, please tell me the reason behind this problem? Is my laptop's WiFi Adapter working properly?

I guess you should check if your laptop’s Wi-Fi is always turned on. Normally, there is a button on the top left corner of the keyboard for the Wi-Fi which turns off or turns on your Wi-Fi capability. See image.

When your laptop can’t find any Wi-Fi connections around your area, make sure the Wi-Fi switch on your laptop is turned on or activated. If this button is turned off, your computer will not be able to find any available Wi-Fi networks. You can also use a Wi-Fi finder application to help your computer find an available Wi-Fi network.

Try using Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector 1.2.1.4. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Another way of fixing your Wi-Fi problem is to update your laptop’s Wi-Fi driver. To install the latest drivers for your Dell laptop, visit Dell Drivers and Downloads.
