My computer will not look for any wireless connections anywhere. I have tried updating my drivers and disabling my firewall but none of that has seemed to work. Please if anyone has had the same issue I would greatly appreciate the help but I simply do not know what the hell to do I have tried everything i can think of.

Hi Miver3385,
Adding to Condobloke,
Is it a laptop or desktop?
Some laptops have a wifi hard switch on the side panel. Check if there is any such.
Are you sure you have a working accesspoint or hotspot nearby?
If you have an intel wireless adapter, intel has options to check the connectivity option included in their driver suite. Post back your machine details as well as adapter name. That will be surely of help..
