All of a sudden, the wifi icon says "no connections are available", also in >ipconfig /all the wifi adapter does not show up. The icon sits there with a red X over it. It's an HP8710w with an Intel 4965AGN. It looks OK in the device manager. It works OK in Linux.
I have tried all attempts with manipulating the driver. Updating, deleting then restating - I would bet if you mention some maneuver regarding driver for the adapter I've probably tried it already in vain. I have some things in the services...I have looked at the error log yet. I tried Win7's self-diagnosis and self-fixing.
Before I do a reinstall of Win7, maybe there's other things I could try. Any suggestion appreciated.
Also I remember in XP there was a way to use the install disk to repair corrupted system files - not sure the steps for this in Win7(?) Would that help?
Any diagnostic info needed about please cite it and I will post. Thanks.
