  1. Hi there,

    The laptop I have is an asus P550C, windows 7.

    This laptop came pre-installed with Mcafee Antivirus protection for a limited amount of time. Wifi was working perfectly fine although there were occasions where the connection would disconnect by itself. After the free-trial ended, I did not want to buy the packaged they were advertising so I went to my Control Panel and uninstalled Mcafee. This was when the problem started to occur. The internet access icon had a red x and when I went to diagnose the problem, it said that I needed to connect via an ethernet cable. Since then, I have connected it with an ethernet and internet works and I have also installed AVG's free antivirus software.

    I have tried to
    type: ipconfig /flushdns
    type: nbtstat -R
    type: netsh int reset all
    type: netsh int ip reset
    type: netsh winsock reset

    But I still cannot connect via wifi. Please help
