    Windows 8.1 problem


    Hello people ,

    I need help and its really killing me. I can't access my wifi thru windows 8.1 acer brand laptop for a week and I felt regretted for buying a laptop powered by Window 8.1 cause it itself is really disappoint as the amount of problems just keep on rising. Okay straight to the point. I reset the whole laptop which includes having to delete all those files and drives that I once used to have before I reset the laptop. So after long hours of removing those files , I was happy to see a good clean space and as usual a new fresh start. Well as usual , you can get really bored and you just gotta download a game. So I downloaded Sims 3 ( 1.93 GB ) thru torrent and the download stops at 93.5% and I was surprised to see that the internet stopped working. I tried to reconnect it but it didn't work so I leave the laptop away for a day. After 6 days of waiting for the wifi to come back , I got really frustrated as I think back of that actual same problem that happened 4 months ago and I was like " Oh dear... not again , I can't remember what I did to fix it". Well the real problem is this , I click on my Wifi which is called " Dell " and as I tried to connect , it keeps checking for network requirements for quite a long period and soon after , it says " can't connect to this network " So I was like why is this happening and yes I did tried other solution such as changing the preferred DNS server and stuff. The troubleshooter says that " You have no preferred network wireless " and " A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken " PLEASE HELPPPPP THANKS

    It looks like wired network is enabled, try disabling it and leave WiFi only.
