I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I'm having a problem that's been on and off with my.wifi for a while. I have a Yoga 2 Pro and the WiFi card seems to disappear completely and I can't get it back without removing all the batteries and leaving it a while. It's not like it needs a driver update, it totally disappears as if it's not even installed and won't show up in any OS or even under the "rfkill list command". It appears to be completely failing. Thing is I've swapped it out and it seems to be some part of the operation that mounts it that isn't working. I notice that it installs into the power board and not the motherboard. Would swapping this fix it? Does anyone have any ideas?

Hey guys,  I bought this Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14 about a month ago, and have had no problems with it until about 3 days ago when the wifi internet got really slow and would cut out with in a minute or two of working. During this time, any time I open the notebook and connect to wifi all other devices in the house won't get internet. I've tried browsing through this forum, but the solutions that seemed to work for others have not worked for me. If anyone has experienced this or knows of a solution please let me know. Thank you!

This is my first time posting so i hope its in the right place. Here it goes:

I have just replaced my WiFi card from (BCM943228HMB) to BCM94352HMB. Before replacing my WiFi card i done the following:

1. Made computer boot in safe mode with networking.

After that i replaced the card, then booted into windows 10 (safe mode with networking) and checked device manager. Everything was OK (See attached picture). I then tried to turn on WiFi, but it does not turn on. Any help is appreciated.

Hahaahahaha don't look at the other tab

A:WiFi not working after replacing WiFi card [BCM94352HMB]

Why are you booting into safe mode? I would connect a network cable to the wired network port, if possible for you. In regular windows, not safe mode, right click on the 802.11ac network controller and uninstall. Right click on the top device manager entry for the computer itself and select scan for new hardware.

We have had WiFi for about 10 days now, and everything was ok until yesterday. WiFi went down, for some reason. We have 2 desktops PCs connected to router via cables, and 2 smartphones (Google Nexus S running Android 4.0.3 and Nokia N96 running old Symbian, if it matters) that go with without wires. The thing is, when my brother, turns on his PC, WiFi doesn't work for any of us, not on my PC nor on any smartphone, or his PC. When he shuts his PC down, it's all OK again. He did install (automatic) Windows Update.
Why is this all of a sudden happening? And how do we fix it?

ASUS Notebook G60Vx Series

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.

Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off

So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
 

A:Wifi not working on ASUS laptop, LAN working fine

Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...

Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)

In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.

If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

Hi guys! I'm new to this forum but I come here in the hope that you can help me figure out why is it that when I connect my TiVo to my linksys router(configured as a switch), I STOP HAVING WIFI! Don't know why... As soon as I turn the TiVo box off the wifi starts working(as soon as I reboot the router)... The TiVo works perfectly, no breaks and perfectly connected to the network, but that specific router switch where it is connected, stops functioning though wifi(can't even connect!)

The setup I wish to use(and that is currently working) is:

Modem router(Thomson)---through cable to another router(with dhcp and nat disabled)airporttime capsule)--- through cable to another router(linksys) also with dhcp and nat disabled... Everything works when not using the TiVo box...

Hi,

I have a PC connected to a smc router (smc networks wbr14-g2) I have my internet modem connected to this router so I can have a strong wifi connection (my internet modem is pretty far away).

I configured the wifi signal, I added a WEP key, etc. Now I can connect my smartphone easily and has a strong internet connection, but my PC doesn't, it recognizes the signal, it connects to it, but it tells me that I have no internet access.

It seems strange to me that my smartphone can connect to internet, even play netflix, but my PC can't.

Any tips?

I have windows 7 operating system.

Lenovo G50-45 WIFI doesn't work after Windows 10 home install. When it first came up after install it worked but after the Windows update procedure and reboot the WIFI is broke. Clicking on the Wi-Fi button does nothing, stays greyed out. Opening network settings and clicking Wi-Fi to turn it on shows a blue icon that says it's enabled but that status is not reflected in the status showed from the network icon pop up!Looking at the adaptor settings says it is working! (Lies, lies lies!!!) Tried to install drivers from the Lenovo support site and that didn't work, installed ok but still broke. Tried to update drivers from the device manager for the Realtek adaptor and the status says the best driver is already installed! I called Lenovo support and they said they have a fix and would help me for a price!!! **bleep**? They won't post the correct WIN 10 driver to the support site so I can install it myself. But they will let me pay $70 for a one time fix!! What a scam! I doubt I will ever buy Lenovo again! Is there a fix that anyone knows about? A second or third part driver?

I moved into a new place about 6 weeks back, aware that the wifi signal was weakest in my room
however, as of about 3 days ago, my laptop (Toshiba) refuses to connect in my room, but also won't show up any of at least 10 neighbouring networks that usually appear
my phone and other devices connect quite alright, and when I go into the main room, where the router is, my laptop connects- heck it connects whilst outside my room! just not inside
though even when I sit next to the router, only the router from my house shows up and none of my neighbours ones do
it's all very odd and quite confused as to why it's happened and how I could fix it
any ideas?
thank you
 

A:wifi not working where it once did

Possibly a driver issue. I'm assuming that you are using an integrated wireless adapter. Make sure you have the latest driver from Toshiba's web site. If you already have the latest driver reinstall it anyhow in case the installed instance is corrupted.

Mostly sounds like a broken or disconnected antenna. If your wireless adapter is easily accessed via a cover on the laptop's bottom make sure the antenna leads are secure. While you're there remove and reinsert the card carefully and firmly several times to clean off any potential corrosion on the contacts.

And i am currently connected to the internet through lan so my internet is working. and wifi is working on another laptop perfectly fine.

A:wifi not working

I don't know the inspirons as well as I know the Dell Latitudes but I guessing they have the same features. On the older Latitudes you can toggle the wireless NIC on or off by pressing Ctrl + F2. The newer Latitudes have a small switch on the left side of the notebook that turns the wireless on or off. One more thing I would make sure the power cord is plugged in with power on the notebook. Sometime the Wired NIC won't work on battery power, maybe the wireless NIC is the same way.

Hello everyone, I'm having trouble with my wifi. Unlike many other cases, my wifi worked after I installed Windows 8. However, yesterday we messed around with our wifi (we set up two networks - one regular, one as a guest network), and eventually my computer stopped showing any wifi networks at all. There are 3 networks around me, one is our neighbor's network, two are ours. One is a guest wifi, one is our regular wifi.
I have a dual boot setup with Ubuntu and Win8, so I tried booting into Ubuntu. Ubuntu recognizes all the networks around us, and so do all the other computers on our network. Ethernet still works, but after resetting the wireless adapter without an ethernet cable attached, the computer doesn't even recognize any networks at all (still no cables attached). After resetting the wifi adapter, there is no way to see any networks besides ethernet anymore.
Help! How can I get my wifi working again?

In looking at the SUPPORT PAGE for that model, this warning pops up.  HP has not tested this product for upgrade to Windows 10 and will not be developing Windows 10 drivers for this product. If the switch to Windows 10 was working and now it is not, it is common for a Windows 10 update to cause issues.  It most likely is a driver issue, either way.  Look for the Hardware ID for the WiFi adapter in Device manager and then use the manufacturer's driver for Windows 10.

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

Please Download and run this Xirrus WiFi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

Please Download and run this Xirrus WiFi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here. For Vista and Windows 7, 8 you can use the Windows Snipping Tool
