my laptop computer is no longer picking up a wireless signal from my DSL Router. My laptop is sitting in my room and the Router is in the living room. For the past two year, everything worked fine until I had updated my laptop. What is so strange is that now my laptop is able to pick up my DSL Router's signal if I bring it very close to each other.

I had tried to restore my laptop to an original as new but it still not worked. It only picked up my home DSL Router wifi when i bring my laptop close to the Router.

I am sure it has nothing wrong with the Router because 2 of my smartphones are able to pick up wifi signal in my room.

When I go to control panel and manager and check up my wifi adapter card, it said it is working properly. Besides my laptop is able to pick up wifi signal when i bring it very close to the Router.

I already restore my laptop to as original as new so I was assume any update would be eliminate which conclude it is not upgrade problem.

Help Please....

Unplug the router for about 30 seconds, then plug it back in and see if the signal improves once the router re-initializes. If that solves it, remember this step and repeat if needed. This happens from time to time and routers sometimes need a re-boot.

NO Work!! I am sure that it has nothing to do with the router because all of my other laptops and smartphones are able to pick up signals in my room.

Make sure the wireless switch on your laptop is turned on. Also verify your wireless card is turned on in Windows.

install all optional and required updates to ur laptop (via ethernet). Restart it. Go to manage wireless networks and delete the network out of the list and attempt to re-establish a connection w/ it.

if you don't see ANY wireless networks when you try to re-connect to it, go to ur laptop's manufacturer, search the downloads for wireless drivers for ur specific model laptop and OS. Install them and restart the laptop and repeat deleting the wifi network and re-connecting

The internal wireless cards antenna connection may have come loose.
