COMPLICATED BACK STORY--FEEL FREE TO SKIP:
I'm am partly to blame for this, I guess, because years ago it WOULD recognize some networks, just not the one at our parent's house. I did something to it (can't remember what now) to get it to recognize our parents wifi and it worked, but from then on, according to my sister, it stopped working EVERYWHERE else. (Now she says it won't even work at our parent's house). My sister is visiting me for the hollidays and I have exactly one day to try to fix this problem.
What are the basic steps to rundown in attempting to fix this problem? Should I uninstall/reinstall the wifi drivers?
Yes, the laptop does have an external wifi button and I've pushed it and it lights up and makes no difference.
Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated!
