I have recently been having a lot of my trouble with connecting to my wifi. I dont think its an issue with my internet as all other devices still connect with no problems.
For a few days my laptop wouldnt connect at all and when I troubleshot it, the error message was 'A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken'. I have tried uninstalling the driver and restarting with no success as well as a few other things like turning off and taking the battery out to no effect.
I have recently plugged in via ethernet cable which worked and I made sure all the windows updates were completed.
Now when I try to use wifi it doesnt connect straight away but when i troubleshoot it the same error message comes up but with a yellow triangle rather than a red one and the internet does work, however it does seem to drop out quite frequently and requires troubleshooting again to resolve the issue.
