  1. Wi-Fi no longer working, out of ideas on how to proceed


    Lenovo Y480 Ideapad (late 2012)

    Issue: Attempting to connect to Wi-Fi, status is "No Internet, secured"

    Wi-Fi works fine for iPhone and MacBook

    Device Manager-->USB-IF xHCI USB Host Controller (Intel WiUSB) "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

    The driver was from 2012 and according to Windows there were no updates. Intel Driver Update did not bring up an update either. I removed it completely with the intention of attempting to reinstall it but there does not appear to be any way of doing that. Where do I proceed from here?

    RESOLUTION: The issue has been resolved thanks to a user on another forum. I had to install this driver, restart, and then I was able to connect to WiFi again. My internet still wasn't working ("dns_probe_finished_bad_config" error message on every website) but was able to get that resolved quickly with this.

    :)

  2. HTC Trophy Unlocked - Wifi Connection Issues

    Thanks David. I tried your recommendation and the browser just times out ("We're having trouble reaching this webpage"). The wi-fi settings see the SSID's of the public wi-fi sites, but can't connect to any of them. It worked fine until recently. I know
    the wi-fi is still working b/c it works on my office wi-fi and my home wi-fi. I used to be able to connect airport, coffee shops, etc. on this phone so not sure what's changed or how to run diags. to test.

    I appreciate any ideas.

  3. Lumia 735 with Windows Phone with OS Build 10.0.14393.2007 no longer connects to Internet when away from Wi-Fi

    I have a Lumia 735 with Windows Phone with OS Build 10.0.14393.2007 no longer connects to Internet when away from Wi-Fi. Internet access and email work fine when near Wi-Fi. But as soon as I leave Wi-Fi range then I no longer have internet access causing
    Edge and Email to no longer work. Once back in range of Wi-Fi, connection is automatic and Edge and Email now work.

    Does any one know a solution?

    Thanks,

  7. Which one is it? The Intel WiUSB is not on here.

    EDIT: I was thinking it was the WiMAX driver, but apparently not: "This setup program installs software for the Intel Centrino Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250 or Intel Centrino Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 adapter, but no WiMAX was detected on your computer. Do you want to continue anyway?"

    EDIT 2: The following drivers did not work (after restarting):

    Intel PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 10
    Intel WiMax Driver for Windows 8.1(32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad Y480,Y580
