Right click on the wifi icon on the taskbar by the time, then click Open Network and Sharing Center. On the left side of the window that pops up, click on "Change Adapter Settings". You should see your wireless adapter listed here, and can enable or disable it from here.

Cant connect to wifi


Hello Murray,

The first thing that I would advise you to do is,

Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,

(For WIndows XP)
Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties-->Hardware-->Device Manager,

select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall

Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",

This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).

(For WIndows Vista/Windows7)
Right-Click on my computer Icon, go to

Properties-->>Device Manager, select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall

Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",

This will also bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).

After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.

It should connect like that.

Try this out and kindly let me know how it goes,

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Goodluck

Won't connect to WiFi home network, keeps coming up with ünable to connect". My other laptop connects automatically


Go to device manager, network adapters, select your wifi adapter, right click then uninstall it. If you're with Vista, do not delete the drivers. Then when its gone, select action on device manager and scan for hardware changes. It will re install the wifi adapter back. Now try to reconnect back to your router, put in your security key and once connected, save it. When you boot it up again it should connect back automatically again.

Hope this helps.

Vista Premium wireless network callapse


Go into device manager, under control panel, go into network adapters, select your wireless adapter, right click on it, click uninstall, if you're with vista, it'll prompt you to delete the drivers, just leave that box unchecked then click ok. After the adapter is gone, click on action on device manager then click scan for hardware changes. The wifi adapter should be re installed. after you check that the wifi adapter is back on the list, you can exit device manager. Click start, connect to, try to reconnect to your router and it should work fine. After you have established internet connection and you can browse, you can download tthe Skype program again.
