  1. Wireless Network Adapter MIA


    So about a month ago I ran into the issue of my computer just randomly kicking me off of the internet. As this has happened from time to time, I knew to click on my internet settings on the task bar and disconnect and reconnect, nbd. Well that is until the WiFi adapter is...poof...gone...?? Network and Internet settings, again no sign of it, like ****?! I'm no computer wizard but I'm also not technology illiterate either. I notice in the corner of the task bar I have some funny symbol and when hoovered it displays "IEEE802.11 WLAN Not Exist." Come to find out Microsoft broke my wifi network adapter with some update!?!?! If this issue has been resolved, great point me in the right direction, please. However, if not, Microsoft just how are you planning to compensate me for my valuable time and the huge inconvenience you have caused?


    S.O.S-from the woman whom now has to set on the floor with her laptop to be connected directly to her WiFi modem....like seriously I have **** to do and having to unplug, go to my desk, connect to my printer, scan/print, disconnect, go set back on the floor to plug back in, smdh.....

  3. Which network adapter?

    My friend recently came over to my house with his laptop. Before I could connect him to my lan he detected several wireless networks in the area. I want to connect to these wireless networks, but I don't know what kind of adapter I need. I searched his laptop model and this is his network adapter http://www.intel.com/network/connectivity/products/wireless/wireless_n/overview.htm

    It seems he could get both N, and G signals

    what would any of you guys suggest?
