I have a Samsung Notebook that up until last summer, connected to wireless networks just fine. It has since stopped working with WiFi. It still works when plugged into the network with an Ethernet cord. I have tried it at other locations like McDonald's or coffee shops, and it won't connect there either. So far, I have restarted/rebooted my laptop multiple times, tried to troubleshoot the connection, and uninstalled the network on my laptop. When troubleshooting, it always says that the wireless is turned off even when it's on. Also, when it's on, it says that there are no detectable networks. I just recently uninstalled the network on my laptop and I'm not sure that it has re-installed completely. Every time I restart my laptop, it says that it has detected software that it views as essential. When I give it the okay to install them, it says that a reboot is necessary to normalize the system. After it turns back on, it gives me the same message about the software and the same ones need installed, one or more of them being the network I uninstalled.
I really need help here. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated. If you need anymore information, I'll do my best to oblige.
Thank you for any help!
