    Not Detecting ANY Wireless Networks...System Restore No Help


    I have a Dell Inspiron 560 Desktop that is running Windows 10. It says that there are no wireless networks to connect to, and it tells me I need an ethernet cable to be connected to the internet. I tried several options, but none of them have worked:

    1) Restarted my wireless router.
    2) Restarted my computer.
    3) Tried to do a system restore, but it told me there was one file that the computer "could not access" and the system restore could not be completed.

    I went to "Device Manager" and right-clicked on the network adapter (Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller) and selected "update driver software." It told me the most up to date drivers are already installed.

    Can anyone give me any other suggestions? My computer is in my bedroom and my wireless router is in the living room; I would rather not have to run an ethernet cable that far. Thanks!

    :)

    Issue with Wifi network after System Restore (Win 10)

    Nothing works. :-(

    My wireless router definitely works as my other gadgets can see the network name. Network troubleshooter can't detect any error.

    Ran the networking commands and everything is the same as it. Network Adapter Driver is up to date.

    I was able to see my wifi networks just before I've done the System Restore. But I was not able to restore back to that time frame as I don't have any restore point created then.

    Regards,

    Joyce

    I assume you had used a wireless connection before with this PC...
    so that means it was not detected, or has been turned off...
    If it was seen in device manager then it could of been a driver issue..
