My problem started the day of the big cyber attack on the internet. Coincidence?
I am having the same problem as this poster
I've tried everything mentioned in that thread to no avail.
I have Windows 7 - 64 bit.
Vaio vgn-z610y which is 7 yr old.
Went to Device manager.. First deleted, then I updated the driver for Intel Wifi 5100 AGN.. Then I went to the Sony site and found another driver update.
I don't see a place in Bios.to enable wireless.
The Windows Mobility utility didn't fix the problem.
I don't know what else to try..The Netgear WNR1000 v4 router is new and wifi works on my tablet..
I've removed the battery from the laptop.
I don't have a restore point so maybe I have a virus? I've run Malwarebytes, , Awdcleaner, Avast, Tdsskiller,
