  1. Anomalous wireless adapter settings after updates


    My specs: Ryzen 3 3.2Ghz
    Gtx 1050ti
    WiFi card- TP link :qualcom atheros communications Inc
    8GB of DDR4 3200Mhz RAM

    After several updates I have lost the ability to connect to WiFi, The router appears but when I try to connect it says "unable to connect to this network".
    On closer inspection in the network adapter settings in the advanced tab I only have: 802.1 1b preference: long and short

    Ad-hoc: 11n

    Dynamic MMO power save : disabled

    Network address: not present

    Receive buffers: value: 256

    Scan valid interval: 60

    Transmit buffers: 512

    There is no option to select the preferred frequency (2.4/5.2Ghz) aswell as many other options that are normally available on windows ten (according to looking at two other computer settings and screenshots online).
    Could this be the cause of the problem? If so, could I fix it without reinstalling windows?.

    I have installed the latest drivers from the manufacturers website via USB, nothing I have tried has fixed it apart from reinstalling windows.

    :)

  3. wireless display adapter firmware update

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    To better understand the query, please answer the following questions:

    1. What is the make and model of the wireless adapter?

    If so, I would suggest you to visit the manufacturer's website and check if there are any updates available.

    However, you can try the steps below and check if you are able to update it manually from the computer.

    1. Press Windows key + R.

    2. Type devmgmt.msc and press enter.

    3. If the wireless display adapter is listed, expand it.

    4. Right click on the driver and check for updates.

    Let us know the result.

    Issue with connecting Dual monitor with Wireless Display Adapter

    Hi Penny Wells,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I can understand the situation must be difficult for you when things do not work as they should. However, we would need some more information regarding the issue.

    1. What is the make and model of the computer?
    2. What is the model of the TV?

    This issue can occur if there is pending firmware update or the issue with the drivers. I would suggest you to follow the below steps and let us know about the results:

    Method 1: Fix connections to wireless displays or docks.


    I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft article on
    Fix connections to wireless displays or docks.


    Method 2: Troubleshooting Wireless Display Adapters.

    If method 1 doesn’t fix the issue, I would suggest you to follow all the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the Microsoft article on
    Troubleshooting Wireless
    Display Adapters
    refer the steps ‘Having trouble connecting your device to the adapter?’

    Note: The above article contains steps regarding Firmware update.
