    No wireless also not in PC settings


    I am getting very frustrated... pleaaaaaaaaaase help me!

    I cannot connect to my wireless anymore (all other devices in my home do) since windows has automatically installed the drivers for my canon printer.

    In PC setting i do not have the button wireless anymore (i am pretty sure that i had it last week). Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros AR964x) is in my network connections, but cannot connect. Diagnoses says problem with wireess adapter or access point.

    So what did i do until now :
    I have restarted the whole interne installation ( rounter, and all other devices) many times
    Atheros driver is up to date and device status is "working properly"

    i dont know anymore what to do more (except switching to linux and not being able to use some commerical software i rely on for my work) :-(

    Welcome to Eightforums. Show us your ipconfig /all and add the model number of your Samsung in your System Specs. What router are you using and is it set for WPA2 and AES.

    Open a command prompt and type ipconfig /all, save the file as a text file and attach to your next post. Some router details may help also.

    Do you have some software for wireless from Samsung installed, it appears you are running internet on a cable. Try unplugging the cable and connecting to the wifi, if you show available networks but it will not connect, go to the router page and check the wifi setup. Adapter and Router must be set same security.

    and without cable, there is no wireless appearing on my computer (but there are many wireless around and all other devices in the house connect... so it is not a router problem...)

    There is a setting in the advanced properties of the Atheros adapter to disable wifi on cable connected, depending on how that is set decides if the wifi will work with Ethernet connected...when you go to Network and Sharing, on left side click Change Adapter settings. Right click on Wifi adapter and see if 'Enable' is available.
