  1. Wifi/wireless connection


    I just want to share this. After a recent update my WIFI connection was disabled, I contacted Microsoft Support for help, they tried but to no avail. Every thing from Reset, uninstall, reinstall ,system restore ,etc. didn't work. When ever I trouble shoot the troubleshoot kept displaying that my wireless capability isn't connected, then I start to google what wireless capability is then I discovered this : press fn + the wireless F12 on window laptop and my WIFI is back on. Simple.

    :)

  2. USB Wireless adapter not connecting to Wifi

    Hello

    I am having trouble making my new USB Wifi Adapter to work. The drivers are working fine but the issue is it is not connecting to wifi.

    1. I am using Windows 10
    2. The adapter which I am trying to work is Alfa AWUS036NHA 150Mbps
    3. I have also one USB mini wifi adapter attached to my other USB through which I am currently using internet

    From the above screenshot, the Wi-Fi 2 is which I am trying to connect. When I right-click on Wi-Fi 2 and click on Connect/Disconnect, It shows the already connected Wifi through USB mini adapter.

    When I Disable WiFi and try to connect through WiFi 2 then it shows an error "Change settings, such as making a connection metered"

    The device utility does not show any Wifi available connections though there are 2-3 wifi connection is there.

    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.

    In my device manager, it shows that the drivers are there and the device is working fine.

    when I try to update drivers, it says the best drivers are installed already.

    Any other solutions?

    Thanks
