Hi, I was wondering if someone can help me out. Three computers use the same wireless connection as me but the problem is that their connection was working while mine wasn't. I finally had to use an ethernet cable to connect to the router directly and get internet through there. I tried to connect to the wireless connection but the icon is missing from the taskbar on the bottom right corner of the screen and the network connections folder in control panel is empty. Even the "connect to" option that can be accessed from the start button, is saying empty on it. What I have tried:
1) I went onto device managed and checked for any problems with drivers - the Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter folder is not working properly and uninstalling/reinstalling or updating the driver doesn't work. I don't know if that is the cause
2) I have tried all the troubleshoots available including the network connections troubleshoot as well as the above drivers' troubleshoot.
3) In device manager I also went to view - show hidden devices, SASKUTIL is another driver that has the same problem as the Broadcom one above and I am not sure what it is and what it does so I haven't touched it.
Everything else seems in order and googling my problem doesn't seem to help. Just wanted to check if someone has a suggestion or solution for this?
