Exclamation Wifi

I have a Laptop, a Lenovo G560 to be exact, and I no longer get wifi. I plugged in my laptop via usb internet connection and now, even when unplugged, never detects wireless devices, just says "No internet Access" under my wired connection. Some of my other devices can search and connect to my router, but not my laptop. Solution please. Thanks

-S

did your laptop work before wireless?

does it go online when you plug the usb thing in?

Tried rollback the drivers for the wireless? Maybe you did a mircosoft update and it updates the drivers and now they are conflicting with something.. did you do an update?

Check to make sure your wireless is turned on. From some google images, it looks like FN+F5 will turn the wireless on and off. Make sure it's not disable in the Network Connections either.

Go into your tcp/ip settings (right click your wireless connection - properties - highlight tcp/ip v4 and click properties). Make sure that if you have a static ip and dns server that they are correct, or else have the "obtain ip/dns server automatically" checked.

Yes, it did. I does go online yes. I don't know how to rollback drivers, I fully updated and re installed them, still nothing.

My Wireless is on and my Network connections are on as well.

rollback your system.. try the drivers first, click start... see 'my computer' right click, click manage , on the left will be a list of services, 'device manager' is what you need to click.. click it.. look for network adapters, make sure it's the one you are using, right click it, click properties and rollback drivers from their.

If not, can't you do a system restore? if this doesn't work can't you hook it up via ethernet and then update microsoft it might fix it for you.. try the above first before you plug it in
