windows 7, laptop, gateway when i am open up the search for wireless connections i would previously have 10-20 options, but yesterday i was connected to some random unsecure network to download something quickly, and didnt disconnect from it and walked out of range but since then i have been unable to connect to any wireless network. nothing at all shows up on the wireless network list even when i am sitting right next to my modem
when i attempt to troubleshoot the computer the only thing that it ever gives me is to plug in an ethernet cable... -.-... kind of avoiding the idea of a wireless connection...
would appreciate some help
problem solved i just ended up trying to update the drivers... which gave me a perpetual bsod unless i booted into safe mode so i just rolled back my computer cause i didnt have much else for a choice at the moment
HOWEVER i did try to disable my wifi using fn f2 (gateway laptop) and i got the exact same problem so, i am pretty sure that is what the problem was in the first place, thx
ps: who the fuck puts the shortcut for sleep right next to the disable wifi... i was in a rush getting out of the car and putting it into sleep and i must have hit f2 not f3 cause i was closing the lid on my hand lol
Also, since you're on a laptop make sure you haven't accidentally pressed the button that shuts off your wireless. It looks like a lil radio tower on most laptops.
