|I know I'm missing something obvious here but |
it's been a long week.
Laptop will not connect to the router, either
wired or wirelessly. In network connections,
as soon as the cable is plugged in, the 'x'
disappears if it's connected, but checking
properties, it says 'not connected' Similarly,
the wireless adapter can see the router, click
on 'connect', put in WPA key & it says 'taking
longer than usual to connect' and eventually
fails, but it can still 'see' the router. I know it's
not a router problem as my other laptop can
connect fine and it still has the same problem
if I try connecting to another open wireless
network. I've disabled antivirus, reset the IP
stack, even tried it in safe mode with
networking so no other programs can affect it
& still no joy. Did a quick scan with
Malwarebytes & that came up clean - there
isn't a lot on this machine anyway.
Next suggestions please....
