I'm having an issue with my laptop's wifi. I've had it for over a year with no problems, and it was working fine this morning, but now it is having connection problems. This is what it says there are connections available but no connections are listed in the network connectivity box in the right-hand corner of the screen.


I updated the drivers.

I tried resetting the router and modem.

I restored my computer to a previous date when the wifi was working.

I made sure that the wireless functionality is set to "on" on my hotkey switch.


When I troubleshoot the problem in WIndows it says there's a problem with the adapter or the access point. 


When I go into Network and Sharing and click on "Full Map" on the network at the top and view the wireless connection, it says "The adapter is not connected."


I can connect to wireless with my phone and iPad, but not my computer.


However, I'm using a wired connection and it works.


My specs are Windows 7 64 bit


i7 Processor

Network adapter is a Realtek RTL8723ae with newly updated drivers.


I don't know what's wrong - if it's the network or the hardware - and it's really pissing me off.

Go into device manager, uninstall the wireless card. DO NOT check the delete the drivers check box,  and reboot.
