    Please help!! No wifi!!


    Please could someone try to help me! My laptop has been con exiting to wifi with no problems until yesterday morning! I can get the Internet by using an Ethernet cable but can no longer get wifi!

    I've tried refreshing my computer but this didn't work, and I've tried the network troubleshooter too. My laptop states that 'this computer is set to manually connect to TALKTALK-DA1914 (my broadband provider). To automatically connect to a network, you need to change the network settings'. I know my router is fine as can connect with a wire and my iPhone is still connecting with no problems.

    Can anyone help!!!
    Thanks!

    Try removing the router as a device from your computer,and then reinstalling it using your password for the router.

    Reboot your router by unplugging the AC power cord for 2 minutes and then reconnect.

The problem started when I first got my laptop, but it was an uncommon thing. During the time I had windows 8, the wifi would turn limited maybe once or twice every few months.
