  1. Hey guys, my laptop asus stopped working with wifi connection and I was just reading some posts here about this same problem but didn't find how to fix it.

    I was uninstalling some programs from my pc but I didn't uninstall programs named "something wireless". I just took off what I knew I could.

    I also tried the option "solve problems" in the wireless pc symbol and the answer was to connect my laptop to an ethernet cable...that never happened. Just now.

    Does anyone knows how I get back my wireless connection? Pleasee

    Powercycle the modem and router. Here is a specific order if you have a separate modem and router.
    1. Shut down all PC's.
    2. Shut down the Modem and router.
    3. Power on the modem only. Wait 2 minutes or so.
    4. Power on the router. Wait 2 minutes or so.
    If you have a modem/router combo, then you don't need step 4.
    5. Boot up the PC and see if you can connect.
