    Can't even load wifi connections..


    I have my ethernet cable connected right now, but I can't even load my wifi connections at all. I live in apartments so everyone around me has wifi and my phone and iPad is clearly connected, but it won't load any connections, help. Please.

    Is that a laptop, do you have proper drivers installed, WiFi activated ?

    something simular


    Hi Kvalle,
    running 8.1 on asus laptop,
    Came preloaded with both MS generic & Ralink wifi drivers, the issue i have is that if i try to run with the ralink drivers no wifi connections are found
    BUT
    if i rollback to the generic MS drivers hey presto up up and away.
    So pop into
    ControlPanel>deviceManager>networkAdapters>WirelessLancard>Right click>properties>driver, and if your not greyed-out roll back to MS generic.
