  1. Problem with connection


    My Dell Inspiron 15, 5000 series, is having problems with connecting to networks. I have been using it to share my home wifi connection to my phone, using the mobile hotspot feature, as the connection to the home router can be a bit shaky from my room. The router had to be restarted last night, and since then I have been unable to search for or connect to any networks. The mobile hotspot button next to the wifi and airplane mode buttons, found by clicking the wifi symbol on the taskbar, is greyed out and displays the message 'Disconnecting'. When I try to access the mobile hotspot tab in the network and internet settings, the screen freezes and does not allow me access to the tab. I have tried turning my computer off and leaving it overnight, although I didnt unplug it from the mains, but no luck. Is there a way to fix this?

    Many thanks!

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
