I have a Lenovo Y470 that I upgraded to Win10 about a month ago. All worked fine until today when the WiFi randomly disconnected. Now I can't even detect my network (yes it is broadcasting the SSID). I can see my neighbors networks. My other devices can detect and connect to my network fine.

I've tried rebooting router, renaming ssid, reinstalling network adapter, deleting the ssid from registry.... Any other ideas? Thanks.

Hi SkurbRN67,

You can use this procedure:

Step 1: To begin, launch Command Prompt as Admin. To do this, simply right click the Start button and select Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.

Step 2: Enter the following command and hit the Enter key: reg delete HKCR\CLSID\{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va /f

Step 3: Now enter this command, and press Enter once more: netcfg -v -u dni_dne

 

Preferably, you should restart your computer and check back with your Wi-Fi settings.

 

All networks around you should now be visible and you should be able to connect to them easily.

 

I hope this will help you.

Cheers,
Andy

Andy,

 

Thank you very much for the reply.  It's strange, when I went to my computer to try your advice, the WiFi was magically working again so I never got to even try.  If it happens again, this will be the first thing I try.  Thanks.
