Hi All

 

I need help as my internet connection has failed. I am running Windows 10 and until recently all was fine. After a break of a few weeks I put the computer on to find no connection. An additional problem is my lack of any meaningful understanding of this side of computing.

 

In Network Connections I have -

Ethernet

Network cable unplugged

Qualcomm Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (ND15 6.30)

and

Wireless Network Connection 3

Enabled

FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick AC860

 

I have uninstalled the Ethernet controller and reinstalled it to no effect. It is also shown as enabled when I click on it in Network Connections.

 

In Device Manager both the above are shown as working properly.

Under Wireless Network Connection 3 my modem name is followed by Connected, secured.

In Windows Network Diagnostics I get the message -

There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection adapter.

 

Any help would be gratefully received.

 

Thank you.

What does your network consist and how are you connected to it? Does a ethernet plug into your computer or are you trying to use the wireless adapter? In your previous posts you spoke of a wireless repeater. How does that play a role?

Hi Trikein

 

I'm using a USB wifi stick and have been doing so for the last couple of years without a problem. Link is phone line to Talktalk modem via CAT5e RG11 cable.

I can't see my reference to a wireless repeater. Other devices, PC using the same USB device and iPad, are working via wifi.
