Hello, my laptop currently is displaying there are ZERO available connections available when there are plenty and all my wireless devices such as my iPhone and tablets can connect except my laptop. This occurred right after I had malware removed with adw cleaner and malwarebytes. I am at a loss at what to do. Any solutions? Laptop is an asus running windows 8.1

G'day Hp72396, and Welcome to BC.


Try re enabling your connection  with this :

Please click Start > Run, type inetcpl.cpl in the runbox and press enter.
Click the Connections tab and click the LAN settings option.
Verify if "Use a proxy..." is checked, if so, UNcheck it and click OK/OK to exit.
Now check if the internet is working again.

Or uninstall the Device Driver for Wireless Adapter and reboot.

It will reinstall the drivers after boot and you can then try again for available connections ...hopefully.
