Pc won’t show Wifi networks

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

When I open the WiFi menu in the bottom right of my screen it says “No WiFi networks found” but all my other devices (laptop, phone and ipad) connect no problem. Also when I turn my mobile hotspot on it shows up and connects. I tried using a ethernet cable and it works fine. For ethernet I use the motherboard lan port and for wifi i use the Tp-link TL-WN881ND pcie network adapter, with the drivers that came in the box. Also I have built my computer myself and the wifi card has worked for over a year.

OS: windows 10 home 64bit

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Start by updating drivers. You can download files using another PC/device. Or use wired connection.

Did you recently make any changes on the wireless router?

Thanks for all the reply’s I have managed to fix the problem though my internet hub. I do appreciate all the help tough.

 

Edit: I thought it was fixed as it worked all day no problem, but was I wrong. I'm going onto my pc now and it doesnt show any connections. I don't know what is happening it works sometimes but not others. Does anyone know why this is happening?

1) my router and is 2.4 and 5ghz my wifi card is on 2.4 ghz and has been working like that for the last 1 and a half years.

 

2) I downloaded the newest drivers for both my original wifi card (pcie) and the one I bought yesterday (usb).

 

3) no I have not made any changes on the router physically or in the gateway.
