    WiFi Connection Issues


    When I'm at home, my Dell Inspiron 5759 does not connect to my home WiFi network, but all other devices in the house do. When I'm on the road it also will not connect to the hotel WiFi network. My network icon in the task bar is a globe, instead of the typical WiFi icon.


    HOWEVER, if I use my Galaxy Note8 as a hot spot, the PC connects just fine...albeit much slower than I'd like.


    I've checked the Device Manager to see if any drivers are having issues...no little yellow flags on any driver.


    I also opened the "Dell Update" app on the computer, let is scan all the drivers, and it found no issues, and said they were all up to date.


    I'm at a loss...where do I go from here btw...my extended warranty expired end of November...this all started Sunday, right after a Windows update..figures, right?


    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    When will the wifi connectivity problems be solved?


    Hi Wabbles and welcome to Tenforums.

    I've got 4 systems connecting via wireless; all adapters are different makes; all have zero issues, and two of them are old (wireless-G only). Most every issue I have seen with wireless connections has been driver-related. (Or, impending router failure.) I would suggest identifying your adapter model/make, and searching for different drivers that you can try out. And, sometimes an older driver works better than a newer one (just had this issue on a system I was working on yesterday). Also, verify you have these same connection issues when connecting to different routers, just to rule that out.

    OK, so the Windows 10 engineers bollixed up the wifi connectivity part of the operating system. Everybody knows that by now. It seems they are making some progress in resolving it. Now, instead of seeing "Secured, No Internet" on your list of wifi connections, you see "Connected, Secured" EXCEPT no webpages will load. So you really aren't connected. It does seem to be a step in the right direction. Does anybody know when they plan on a full and complete repair of this screw up of epic proportions?
