I have a  ASUS 81A laptop, everything was working fine, I shut it down last Mon. the 12th. I loaded my Laptop in it's case and it stayed until this am. Now here's the problem when I turn it on it shows no WI-FI connection available.(It always shows at least 3-4 connections that are locked but at least available or not but right now nothing) I checked the small switch on the the side to make sure it's turned on, it is. I right clicked on the bottom right side of the screen where there is a red x showing not internet connection and all it shows is Airplane mode, I've changed that to VPN mode nothing. Here's what has me confused & I can't figure it out is that my Puter is showing no Wi-Fi adapter. I would appreciate any help someone could give my. I have checked my Router all connections, everything I can think of. I am running Windows 10 and have had no other problems until now.

 

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

ASUS 81A laptop turns up no hits on the net , from what i can tell its not a known model of asus laptop, as for what you can do i know many laptops have mini-pci cards in em often for wifi, i know mine douse.

 

You could try and clean it and see what happens.

 

As well what your saying is it doesn't show up in device manager ?

normaly it would be on the underside someware hidden under a pannal,but your laptop is a ultra slim so i dout you can change it as well did some reserch on the topic to see if i could buy a new mini pci wifi card for your system and didn't get any hits.

 

As well what your saying is it doesn't show up in device manager ?

 

A network rebuild on a software/driver level sounds like what needs to be done next, im going to have to read up lol.

  Iknow in win98 this topic wasn't a problem to do but im not pro at win10,but im good at finding things on the net and iv bin doing this topic 35 years. lets see what happens.

 

And no im not in win98 atm thoguh i do have a runing vintage gaming computer all setup and good to go that is.

Well, Just dropped in to let you know that didn't work so i have a cat3 I ran into the Laptop and nothing seems to work. I've screwed my LT up so much it's pitiful. Thanks for trying to help. Looks like it's to the shop and let someone smarter than me fix it. Thanks for the help.

Try doing a System Restore, us a restore point dated prior to any changes you have made.  This may get the computer back to the basic problem where we can help you from there.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
