    Default Wireless does not connect but Ethernet does

    I have a Lenovo G550 Windows 7 64-bit laptop. I have been trying to solve this issue for about a week now! I have restarted the router, and reset the modem. I have tried installing the latest drivers, but some still have a yellow triangle notification in the Network Adapters of Device Manager. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi AndM94,

    Welcome to Help2Go

    First
    Have you tried the FN + F5 and checked the switch by the head phone jack?

    Second

    This looks like the driver Here. Is that what you installed?


    Windows 7

    • From the Start menu, select Control Panel, or Settings and then Control Panel. Double-click Network and Sharing Center.
    • From the list of tasks on the left, click Change adapter settings (in Windows 7)
    • For a wireless network connection, right-click Wireless Network Connection and then select Properties.
    • From the Networking tab, click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), make sure it is checked, and then click Properties.
    • Click Obtain an IP Address Automatically,, and then click OK.


    Next
    If above does not work.

    Copy and paste the text in the code box below into Notepad.
    Code:
    @Echo off
    pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
    attrib -h -s -r hosts
    echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
    attrib +r +h +s hosts
    popd
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew
    ipconfig /flushdns
    netsh int ip reset all
    shutdown -r -t 1
    del %0
    Save as flush.bat to your desktop.
    Double-click flush.bat file to run it. Your computer will reboot.

    Note: For Windows Vista or Windows 7, right-click flush.bat and select "Run as Administrator" .


    No luck there,

    Please download MiniToolBox http://download.bleepingcomputer.com...iniToolBox.exe and run it.

    Checkmark following boxes:

    • List content of Hosts
    • List IP configuration
    • List Winsock Entries
    • List last 10 Event Viewer log
    • List Installed Programs
    • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
    • List Devices (Only Problems)


    Click Go and post the result.

    You are honestly..a God. Hahaha thank you so much! The option that resolved the issue was where I made the flash.bat file, any explanation as to what my problem could have been? Is there any way the issue can be avoided in the future for anyone who has my problem?


    Seriously though, thank you SO much. After a stressful week this has saved my laptop and my money.

    Hi,

    Since you reset the router and Modem these items from the .bat file would have been addressed,

    • ipconfig /release
    • ipconfig /renew
    • ipconfig /flushdns


    But not necessarily this one netsh int ip reset all

    One of the components of the Internet connection on your computer is a built-in set of instructions (Poor Windows it always needs a set of instructions or it goes off on its own and gets in trouble ) called TCP/IP. TCP/IP can sometimes become damaged or corrupted. If you cannot connect to the Internet and you have tried all other methods to resolve the problem, TCP/IP might be causing it. To fix that you netsh int ip reset all

    For additional information How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
    see Here

    It's a guess, but a logical one.

    Glad it's functioning for you!
