My notebook can't detect wifi and on the keyboard it shows the signal or the wifi button is ON, but can't get wifi connection. When I went to device manager, there's no wifi drivers under "Network Adapter".

Has it ever worked properly? What has changed between the time it did and now? (hardware or software install, uninstall, update, damage, malware, etc)

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

*chuckle*

I think BC should implement an Helpbot that auto-replies to every Windows and Hardware thread with, "Did it ever work properly? What changed since then?" I bet half the threads solve themselves.

Good job solving your problem, Sierra. Thanks for posting the resolution.
