/ Any one good with computers. Wi fi conectivity problem
my laptop has suddenly stopped conecting to wi fi.
I have tried clearing my my conections list and also a system restore but no joy.
I can find networks but when I try to connect it either won't connect or it says conected but no or limited Internet access.
I'm in Cambodia and I would prefer to try and fix it myself.
Are you sure that the connection you are trying to use isn't restricted (needs you to log on to a website and pay cash?) or just isn't working?
Can you test using a smartphone or is someone else there able to connect to it?
Hi Neil, obvious thing - is there a sliding switch on the side of your laptop that turns wi-fi on/off?
Try reset your windows network components. These can be damaged by spyware programs etc leave you with broken connectivity.
Start > run > type cmd > press ok.
type netsh winsock reset
type netsh int ip reset reset
reboot your PC.

You won't detect networks with wifi switched off.
