    Can't detect any Wi-Fi network

    Hi,

    My Laptop(Lenovo ideapad 310-14IKB) suddenly can't detect any Wi-Fi networks. I can confirm that the Wi-Fi network appears as public on my phone. Troubleshooter can't fix this problem automatically but instead spews out this error :

    There might be a problem with the driver for the Wi-Fi adapter

    Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter.

    So far, I've took these steps to try fix the problem without resetting my laptop:

    • Reinstalling driver. Both newest from manufacturer website and rolled back version.
    • Network reset on Settings > Network & Internet > Status > Network Reset.
    • Disabling IP Helper on services.msc
    • `netsh winsock reset` and restart
    • TCP/IP stack reset
    • Disabling DHCP Broadcast Flag for my Wi-Fi adapter
    Is there anymore things that I can do to fix this?

    PS: My Wi-Fi is 2.4Ghz and my laptop can detect both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz before this error.

    Trouble Changing Wi-Fi Password


    I've been following the following steps to change my Wi-Fi password for some time:

    1. Launch Control Panel.
    2. Click "Network and Internet."
    3. Click "Network and Sharing Center."
    4. Click "Wi-Fi...."
    5. Click "Wireless Properties."
    6. Click the Security tab.
    7. Check "Show characters."
    8. Enter the password in "Network security key."
    Those steps have been working just fine, but today I discovered a new wrinkle. If I change the password inside the router first, "Wi-Fi..." doesn't appear in step 4. This isn't much of a problem at home, because I can just change the password in Control Panel before I change it inside the router, but it would be a problem at a public hotspot, or something of that nature. I also tested Brink's instructions in "How to Connect To a Wireless Network in Windows 10," but they don't work for me either. How can I fix this?

    Cannot detect Wi-Fi

    Having Wi-Fi Issues

    I'm having wi-fi issues with my Lumia 929, that I can't figure out and just seems to ridiculous to have on a smartphone in 2014. When I'm connected to any wi-fi connection that I've previously setup, and leave the location where that network is located (ex.
    home), then go to another location (ex. work) where I've also sucessfully setup a wi-fi connection, my phone will not detect, and therefore will not connect to that wi-fi network.



    Steps:

    • Connected to wireless_home network
    • Leave home, arrive at work
    • Phone will not automatically detect or connect to wireless_work
    • Restart phone, wireless_work is detected, and automatically connected
    This is the kind of problem that will kill Windows Phones in the market! I've been somewhat loyal, but I'm getting very tired of this stuff.
