  1. Wifi Connection Issues

    I recently built a PC and got windows. Everything was fine for a couple of months and then the internet stopped working. It won't let me connect to any network connections even though I can use the wifi on all my other devices. When I try to troubleshoot all it asks for is an ethernet cable which I don't have and have never used. I have tried updating and uninstalling the drivers and nothing has worked. Not sure what else I can do.

    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.
