  1. Wifi


    I am having trouble connecting to a Wi-Fi network. I have an HP laptop with an internal Wi-Fi adapter. When I try to connect to a network the Wi-Fi shuts off for a bit, shows the Ethernet icon, then the Wi-Fi icon flashes for a bit. My Xbox connects just fine to the router and the Wi-Fi can connect to a mobile hotspot.


    What gives?

    :)

    Windows 10 wifi not turning on Acer Aspire laptop

    In order to get the list of available wireless networks, you have to:

    1. Switch on Connect to suggested open hotspots (see the screenshot in question);
    2. Click on Wifi icon in the right corner. Now you have your networks back.

    After that the parameter from Step 1 can be turned off, networks will be listed normally after restarting Wifi.

    P.S. I feel rather stupid at the moment. I thought that open hotspots are passwordless hotspots and so are presumably not very safe. So of course I've turned that off during installation.
    Really hard to see any logic in this case.
