I received a "plz fix it" laptop the other day, that i cant get working
First off i couldnt access cmd so i did a virus / malware scan and found arround 100 infections including Windows protection suite. After a long removal process i got the command line back. After a "ipconfig /all" i seen the wireless card so assumed everything should be ok from here.. so very wrong
I cant get the wireless to work at all. I had to re-enable the wireless zero config service so windows built in network would work but it wont detect any access points. It just says "check your wireless is turned on". I know there are wireless netowrks in range as i can see them on my PSP.
The hardware page under device manager say the card is working properly.
The FN+F2 doesn't toggle the wireless on or off but FN+F1 (Sleep) works.
Cant see any option in bios to do with wireless
Cant see a hard switch on side of laptop
Was using Intel PROset wireless wifi management when i got it but all it showed was a UI with: "wireless networking turned off. Select "wireless on" below to enable networking" on it but there was no such option ANYWHERE.
Went to uninstall then program that used to control the wireless (in my case Intel PROset) when i decided to try the repair option instead. Seemed the wireless driver repair section took a while so im guessing a corrupted driver.
