Hello all, hoping someone out there can help me.
So my old laptop was starting to crap out on me so I decided to buy a new one. About 3 weeks ago I picked up a new laptop, and Asus Republic of Gamers GL702V with Windows 10 pre-installed and for the last few weeks its been working like a dream. However that has changed. I shut it down last night and it was working fine, however this morning after booting it up I noticed I didn't have any internet.
Now my first thought was that maybe our internet was down, but that proved not to be the case, as my old laptop and all our mobile devices were connecting to the internet fine, which made me think that it was a problem with my new PC. And I've tried pretty much everything I could think of.
I've tried restarting my computer several times, tried troubleshooting network problems, made sure my wifi wasn't turned off, uninstalled my wifi network adapter in the device manager and reinstalled several times, uninstalled my driver and booted up with default drivers, made sure to un-check the box under properties that allows windows to turn off the device to conserve power, tried updating the drivers, reset my router several times, and even tried doing two separate system restores, one of which i had clean all the drivers, and still the problem persists.
As it stands now, my PC either can't find any networks, even though I know they're there, or when they do show up I can't connect and/or have no internet access when I do, and half the time the networks will vanish as I try connecting.
Its incredibly frustrating for me, especially knowing how much I paid for this PC and that its less than a month old, and I'm having this problem for no apparent reason, and I'm really hoping someone can help.
