Today I was using surfing the net on my laptop through my wireless connection. One minute I'm fine and the next poof my wireless is completely gone. It was very bizarre. My kindle and phone were connected to my internet. However, I restarted my computer, router and Time Warner internet box several times to make sure. Each time my computer restarted the wireless button at the top of the keyboard stays lit orange instead of white/blue. It simply will no longer connect to the internet wirelessly. I clicked troubleshoot and every time it asks me to connect through ethernet. At first even that wouldn't work. I unplugged the router and the cable, reconnected everything back up, restarted my computer. Still the wireless button won't turn on the wireless but this time the ethernet worked and I am now able to be online.
However, if you could please let me know how I can restore the wireless function to my computer I would be so grateful.
Additionally, doing a quick search online about similar issues I went to my network and sharing, change adapter settings and do not have Wireless as an option. There is only Local Area Connection Network 3 Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller and Local Area Connection 2 Network Cable Unplugged Intel® Centrino® WiMax 6150 listed. I have no idea what these are and don't want to touch them for fear of making the matter worse.
