    WIFI DEVICE


    When my daughter logged in to her laptop this morning she had not been able to get a WiFi connection. We had been experiencing some difficulties recently with this WiFi connection - while the laptop seemed to have a connection to the router it would report no internet connection. The only 'fix' that seemed to work was to disconnect the WiFi, reset the router and then try again - and voila, we had her connections re-establshed.

    This morning nothing worked so I tried the diagnostics tools supplied on her system.


    The laptop is a Lenovo TEHGM10 - a model that does not seem to be listed under the English speaking Lenovo sites. We are living in China but find the China Lenovo web sites are in Chinese only - so no help there.


    The diagnostics in her Windows 10 system System Settings - Network and Internet showed 'You are not connected to any Networks. Using the Troubleshoot button and it kept reporting the Ethernet adaptor was not working - nothing reported for the WiFi adaptor.

    This test suggested to connect a Ethernet cable etc - BUT this laptop has no Ethernet connectors - 3 USBs and 1 HDMI sockets. I am going to look for a USB/Ethernet adapter to help get reconnected, but that is not a preffered option for long term use.


    I went into System Settings to check for switching WiFi on or off and could find nothing for WiFi. I did a search for WiFi and got the Airplane Mode options returned as the result - this was set to 'Off'. I set this to 'on' with no change and turned this feature off again - no change - still no feature for turning WiFi itself on or off.


    I went into Device Manager under Control Panel and could find nothing for a WiFi driver under Network Adapters. Same under System devices. I am almost sure it was previously a Realtek driver, but the only mention of Realtek I have found is for a part of the Audio system.


    I went back into the System Settings and Networkdiagnostics and used Network Reset - no change.


    Stretching my memory I recalled that the issues with 'no internet connection' outlined earlier only started after an update of approx 10 days ago. So I went into Windows Updates etc and Recovery to reset the Windows system entirely - no change.


    So it seems that the wirless adapter has disappeared?? If there has been a total failure of the WiFi hardware would this account for there being no sign of the driver?

    :)
